Problem with eyeshadow and top eyeliner??

My usual makeup routine is primer, top eyeliner, and then eyeshadow. Somehow throughout the day, eyeshadow gets onto my top eyeliner. I'm an amateur at makeup so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. How can I avoid having eyeshadow smear onto my top eyliner?


I've been using a liquid pen for my top eyeliner. And if it helps any, I have Asian eyes.


Any input would be appreciated! Thank you!

I am asian and I have ahd similar problems with this too. I would suggest using a different primer. I realize that some primers are better than others and the one that I found works best for me is NARS eye primer. Also, I would do primer, shadow, and then liner. Also maybe you should try a gel liner because liquid liner can migrate if you have oily lids and I find that some gel liners 'set' better. A good gel liner is MAC's blacktrack fluidline. 

Hope that helped!
