  • don't put it on so heavy. Dead serious, that's the only way I could stop mine from doing it. That or smudge it a little into your eye shadow and that works too! :)

  • its smudges no matter what brand you use? Cause I noticed if I use a cheap brand mine smudges but like victoria's secret eyeliner stays put.

  • LIQUID EYELINER! It's the best! It takes a little practice to get used to putting it on, but once you've got it, there is nothing like it! It never smudges, stays on completely perfect all day long, washes off good too. I love it all the way around. Apply it after eyeshadow but before mascara. And here's a hint on how to put it on - Don't push hard, just let it kind of gently sit on your lashes and with one smooth motion glide it across softly. Like I said , once you get the hang of it, you'll love it!! I used to always use regular eyeliner and had the same problem. Untill I noticed a girl at work and how perfect her eyes always looked. Ever since then, that's all I will use. Good luck. :)

  • This happens to me sometimes as well. Get yourself a good eye primer, several popular ones that you can get are Urban Decay Primer Potion or Two-Faced Shadow Insurance. I use MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study as a base and it works great!

  • It depends alot on the look you're going for. I often put the liner on BEFORE shadow because this softens the look of the liner and also helps set it......at least on top lid. Also, since I have been using Color Stay liner by Revlon I have barely had smudging. I like it MUCH better than other liners I have used. It's my favorite. :-)
