Hello everyone. I will try to explain this issues as best as possible because it is driving me nuts! Every time I apply eyeliner to my lower lash line, it tends to “smudge” below my eye, leaving a thin line of it that I constantly have to wipe off. I suppose you can call this “the raccoon” effect, and no matter what I do I can’t seem to stop that ugly smudge of eyeliner every time I apply it; and I normally apply a perfect line. See, I don’t JUST put eyeliner in the water line, but below it over my lashes. Any advice on how to stop the smudging? I normally have to wipe the area and apploy powder of it so the spots don’t look silly!
I watched a tutorial of Marlena ‘s that she talked about using gel primer under the eye. I have the same thing that happens to me. I feel like I am always wiping under my eyes. It’s so annoying. Let me know if you hear anything else that will help!
I had this problem for ages too!!! You can get waterproof eyeliners and they really do work another good tip is to use a black eyeshadow under the eye (after you’ve applied your eyeliner), by putting the eyeshadow over the top it just makes the eyeliner stay and in other terms it ‘sets’ the liner Hope this helped xx
Yeah, set it with a similar-coloured eyeshadow.
I used black eyeliner pretty much every day….it doesnt budge at all … theres 3 things I do that seem to work:
1. Apply an eyeshadow primer there when you do your lid…so its there but nice and dry by the time you get to doing your liner
2. I either use a liquid, gel or just black eyeshadow for my liner…..if I use black eyeshadow…it just stays im done its good lol
3. If I used a liquid or gel liner…I set it with a deep matte black e/s like MUG Corrupt e/s, MAC Carbon e/s or MAC Black Black Pigment. Just apply it with a thin angled liner brush and it will stay there til you want it off
Note: If you do decide to apply black to your waterline I found the best combo for my very watery eyes is NYX Black Bean Jumbo Pencil then I set it with MUG Corrupt e/s…..It REALLY stays and my eyes water all the time.
