Eye makeup

HELP!!! My eye makeup, eye liner and mascara smudges throughout the day - under my eyes and upper eye. 
I use eye primer - but it doesn’t help 

suggestions ???

I appreciate the suggestions 😊

Re: Eye makeup

@Joey71 I use Urban Decay Primer Potion for powder eyeshadow and eyeliner and it works like a charm - no smudging or creasing.  


Cream Eyeshadows can be trickier - I recommend finding one that doesn't budge once it dries, like Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks.


You can also try mascara primer under your mascara, but honestly, it doesn't do much for me.  Waterproof Mascara is probably a better option - I am loving Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes this summer.


Like @SportyGirly125 mentioned, you may want to try a setting spray - I love Urban Decay All-Nighter or De-Slick (if you have oily skin/eyelids).  But, I recommend to spray before you add mascara - I've made the mistake of spraying after mascara and it immediately smears.



Re: Eye makeup

I do set it with powder but not spray 

Re: Eye makeup

@Joey71 Do you wait to apply your makeup after your skincare routine?  


Maybe try a setting spray


Or you might need to try a new primer

Re: Eye makeup

@Joey71 Do you set your eyes with powder and a setting spray?  

Re: Eye makeup

Thanks so much 😊

Re: Eye makeup

What do you suggest for primer and spray?

Re: Eye makeup

@Joey71 I use MAC prep and prime 24 hour eye base


Morphe setting spray
