How to Fix Oily Eyelids to Keep Makeup in Place

05/26/2016

Let’s admit it: oily eyelids can be a handful. They destroy the eyeliner work you’ve so hard to create, either making them smear under your lower lash line or making them disappear entirely. But there’s o need to fret – Makeup and Beauty Blog serves as your eye makeup fairy godmother with these three handy tips to combat oily eyelids and keep your eye makeup in place. 

  1. Use a makeup primer. If your lids are oilier than what’s average, you can choose to apply a makeup primer before lining your eyes. There are so many products of this kind out there today, but make sure to put on a thin layer to make your eyeliner stick to your lids like a nice adhesive. 
     
  2. Change your routine. What does this mean? Writer Karen suggests that you might want to try a new eyeliner, something that could straight-up last longer than your typical one. Good news: these liners could last on the waterline as well!
     
  3. Set your liner with powder. One last time, you can set your liner with a coordinating powder eye shadow. Pat the eye shadow directly on top of the liner, helping lock it in place.
     

Here are other tips. Make sure to keep your skin completely free of residual makeup before you doll up in the morning. This will keep any leftover oils from the day before away from your problem area. 

Once your face is clean, proceed with skin care – look at the ingredients in your eye creams and moisturizers. One potential reason that makeup isn’t staying in place is that your moisturizer isn’t getting fully absorbed. 

If you can, avoid putting creams on your lids or the area very close to your lash line. Moisturizers and eye creams both have emollient properties, causing makeup to disintegrate.
