Summer is almost here, and budge-proofing your eyeliner is a major must in the warm weather. Here are four tips for budge-proofing your eyeliner without using waterproof formulas.
1. Always prep with primer. One of the best formulas: Urban Decay Shadow Primer Potion . It will help your liner and shadow stay put for 24 hours and it will keep the colors you use as vibrant as possible.
2. Stick your non-powder liner in the freezer for ten minutes before application. The heat and humidity in the summer air can melt and break down your eyeliner and make it less likely to stick. To keep it from budging, make sure it’s nice and cool. It will also help you with precision and smooth lining.
3. Choose the appropriate formula. Kohl eyeliners tend to smudge easily, but that also means they budge easily. Wax and gel formulas, like Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner will stay put longer, and that goes double for the summer.
4. Use liquid/gel AND powder. Why? After applying gel or liquid eyeliner, set it with a
powder liner in the same color. The powder will act like a sealing agent, and help keep your liner from budging. If you’re using a colored liner, the powder will also help intensify the pigment and really make your eyes pop. Try Loreal Kohl Minerals Powder Liner which comes with a built in brush for easy application.
