  • Powder on your eyelids and then the eyeshadow. Usually it's the oils of the skin that make it fade.

  • use one of those eyeshadow bases it goes on before the eyeshadow. Also I know it sounds weird but use regular Chapstick, no colors or flavors. Put some on your finger swipe a light layer on your eyelid then put powder eyeshadows on, not too dark though. The chapstick is sticky but not oily. I read it in a magazine and it sounded crazy but it really worked for me.

  • I personally use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It stops it from creasing and from fading. Its awesome. its $17 but its truely worth it since it goes a long way. :)

  • I sell Avon and we have a facial primer called Magix Face Perfector. I use it on my face and my eyelids too and my makeup stays put all day. I can't live without it! You can try it at www.youravon.com/dhullum use code fsany for free shipping. I also love the waterproof eyeshadow by Anew. It stays put all day long even at the theme park! I tried it out on Monday lol.

  • Use a cream base first, then a higher end shadow. I like Estee Lauder.
