BEAUTY HACK: HOW TO KEEP YOUR EYELINER FROM SMUDGING

LIFE. PROBLEMS. SOLVED.

So you’ve nailed your cat eye flick and you’re feeling like you run the world right now? Then you blink and that perfectly drawn on eyeliner imprints onto your eyelid and you could quite literally, pull out your own eyeball with frustration.

We’ve all been there, babes. But before you inflict some hideous horror onto your unsuspecting eyeballs – listen up, cause we’ve got the hack to sort out all your smudging eyeliner woes.

So – how do you stop your eyeliner from smudging, you ask? Answer: it’s all in the layering.

Beauty hack: powder in between eyeliner layers

Rita Ora’s makeup artist Kathy Jeung told Byrdie “After your first application of eyeliner has dried, with a small fluffy brush, carefully dust a tiny bit of matte translucent powder, like Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, over the eyeliner with short inward strokes; then, draw a second coat of eyeliner for extra intensity and staying power.”

Powdering your liner in between each application not only soaks up any excess grease- stopping your liner from smearing and smudging – but it also makes your liner last LOADS longer.

Obviously – a bloody great eyeliner also helps with the whole no smudging thing. Our faves at the mo include Sleek’s Flick It Eyeliner, MUA’s Gel Eyeliner and Oriflame’s The One Eyeliner Stylo.
