How to Prevent Your Eyeliner from Smudging


Who does not want to look beautiful? We spend hours after makeup to get the perfect look. Nothing makes us happier than perfectly shaped eyeliner. It boosts our confidence, and we feel good about ourselves. What if we look into the mirror and discover that we look like a panda with all smudged eyeliner? Everyone wants their eye makeup to last long.

How to Prevent Your Eyeliner From Smudging Tips

This article has some ways to help you keep your eyeliner in place throughout the day.

1. Remove extra oil from the face

Before applying makeup, one must wash their face to remove all the excess oil, mainly from around the eyes. Mostly, eyeliners smudge because of the presence of oil on our skin. So, one must clean their face thoroughly before applying eyeliner. You can also use some oil soaking tissues for a quick effect.

2. Use a good primer

Instead of applying the eyeliner directly, you should apply a primer all around the eye makeup area. This keeps the eye makeup in place. Also, you should use a brush to apply the eye makeup instead of your fingers. Using fingers may add some dirt or oil to the area.

Use skin colored powder/eyeshadow

3. Use skin-colored powder or eye shadow

 Before you apply the eyeliner, apply a coat of powder close to your eyelashes. If you are planning to use an eye shadow, apply it before you go to your eyeliner. This gives the liner something extra to hold on to. Thus, the eyeliner stays intact.

4. Apply concealer

Applying concealer to your under-eye area can be beneficial. It acts as a barrier between your eyeliner and the skin. The concealer keeps the liner from running.

5. Use the curler

Most of us curl our lashes to make our eyes look bigger. We should do the curling before we use the eyeliner. This is because the curler can smudge the liner, and you have to redo it. Even if you are going for fake lashes, you should apply them before you go for the eyeliner on your eyes.

Use quality liner

6. Use quality liner

The quality of your eyeliner matters a lot. If you have dry skin, you can go for any eyeliner. But if you possess oily skin, you should avoid all gel or pencil liners as they get smudged easily. Liquid liners are comparatively smudged resistant. There are some specially made smudge-free liners as well in the market.

7. Apply the eyeliner away from your waterline

All of us usually apply the eyeliner on our waterline, but this can make our eyes water, and with no time, our liner will be smudged. We should apply the eyeliner just below the water line to avoid such circumstances. Thus our eyes will look bigger, and the eyeliner will not get smudge.

Apply smoothly

8. Apply smoothly

Eyes are sensitive, so you must go easy while applying the eyeliner. If you press them too hard or poke them, your eyes will start watering, which can ruin your whole makeup. So, one must apply their eyeliner smoothly with small strokes.

9. Let the liner dry

Most of us do our eye makeup in a hurry and do not give the eyeliner enough time to dry. Applying makeup over wet eyeliner can be a disaster.

10. Reapplying

Sometimes we do this with our lipsticks. We reapply the lipstick to get the perfect color. One can do the same with eyeliners. After the first application, we can apply it again. Thus the liner gets thicker and stays in one place. 

11. Barrier technique

After the eyeliner is dry, you can make a thin barrier just below the eyeliner using primer and powder. This will keep the liner in place.

12. Layering

You can use the same-colored eye shadow over your eyeliner. This will protect the eyeliner from smudging, and it is also a great chance to fill any gaps or liner mistakes.

Use Water-proof mascara

13. Use waterproof mascara

Waterproof mascara saves your eyeliner from water or oil throughout the day. This helps the liner to last longer. The mascara also makes your eyes pop out.

14. Use a setting spray

When you are done with your makeup, do not forget to use the setting spray. Hold the spray 6 to 7 inches away from your face. Spray the mist over your face while keeping your eyes closed. It takes 8 to 10 seconds to dry. Avoid rubbing the spray on your skin. Also, avoid spray that has alcohol if you have dry skin. This can make your skin drier and also use the oil-free spray if you have oily skin. Carry extra tissues to remove any oil from your skin.

15. Avoid heat

Sweating can damage your eye makeup, no matter how precautions you take. So you must avoid all activities that can cause sweating.

16. Avoid touching your eyes

Some of us are not habituated with wearing daily eyeliners, so they accidentally rub their eyes and smudge the liner. This must be avoided.

These are some tips that can prevent your eyeliner from smudging, and you can enjoy fresh makeup throughout the day.
