If you have hooded eyes, you might find your eye makeup is prone to smudging or moving on the natural fold of your lids. Prepping your lids correctly and choosing the right eye makeup products will ensure your eyeliner stays put. “Always apply a long-wearing, water-resistant primer or eye shadow first, then gel or liquid eyeliner,” says Russell. “If you are a beginner, you can start by tracing with a soft brown pencil or gel eyeliner,” she says.
When choosing eyeliners, look for long-wearing products that will stay put. “Good long-wearing liquid eyeliners are Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and KVD Tattoo liner,” says Russell.
