Whether you work up a sweat running from meeting to meeting or happen to have naturally oily eyelids, runny eye makeup can be a huge problem. And with snowstorms looming on the horizon, many women may be searching for ways to avoid looking like a raccoon at the end of the day.
"Eyeliner usually runs when it encounters oils on the skin," beauty expert Gucci Westman explained to InStyle magazine. Luckily, there is an easy way to keep liner in place - prep your lids before applying makeup.
Use an eyeshadow brush to apply pressed powder along the lash line. "This helps soak up oils and lock eyeliner in place," Westman added.
Remember not to put on your mascara until the very end - if you dust your lids with shadow after you apply mascara, powder can stick to your lashes, making them look cakey.
Most importantly, however, the publication advises gals to choose items that are water-resistant - like blinc Mascara and Eyeliner - as they are more likely to avoid smearing. Unlike conventional mascaras that paint lashes (and subsequently flake off), blinc's acrylic-based formula forms individual tubes around each lash. It won't run or smudge and will last for hours without a single touch-up.
