Tips for oily lids

Hi All!

Looking for some tips and suggestions on my oily lids.  I live in a hot humid area, and love lining my top lids with some black liner.  However, within a couple hours, my liner smears and I have accumulated a smeared line at my crease (I have double eyelids).  Any advice?  

Re: Tips for oily lids



 Try a good eye primer (especially fi you can find a mattifying one) on lids and at lashline. Set lids to brow lightly with translucent powder. Then, after you have lined your lids, either set that with a little powder too (use a small slim eye brush) or set you liner with matte black shadow using a fine liner brush. I used to always set my liner like that, when I worked in a fast food restaurant and the very air was full of oil form the fryer! 


ETA: just read in another thread that Smashbox eye primer works well, but you need to let it set. I'd say that's good advice for any first makeup layer!
