How to keep your eye liner from smearing
Posted by Carol on January 30, 2008
My helpful hint this week is a makeup trick that lets you never have those dark raccoon circles under your eyes from your eyeliner smearing as the day goes on. The reason your eyeliner smears is that it is made with wax. Your body heat causes the wax to slowly melt, giving you those unsightly dark circles under your eyes. Here’s what you need to do to avoid all that:
Get yourself an angled makeup brush and a dark color eyeshadow, such as brown. Or just go with a color that you would normally choose in an eyeliner pencil. Then use the angled brush to apply the eyeshadow along your lash line, just like you would with your eyeliner pencil. The brush I use is small with flat bristles and is kind of stiff. I promise, it will not smear – unless, of course you rub your eyes. It is also easier to wash off at the end of the day. Here is a picture of some brushes that would work well.
Give it a try. I think you’ll be happy with the results.
