Eyeliner that will not smear? Have oily skin

Posted by colorcrazy (My Page) on

Is there any other poster that has oily eye lids? I used to use L'Oreal liquid eyeliner. Passe, I know, but it did not smear. Now I can't find anything that won't leave a mirror image on my upper eyelid. UGH So I've stopped wearing eyeliner entirely, but I miss it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am using Urban Decay's waterproof liner pencil, it stays.........

I've tried everything like you and found the best results using a method my friend taught me in college (20 yrs. ago, yikes!): dampen a flat (1/4" wide) rounded tip brish and swipe, like a painter on a palette, eyeshadow (bobbi brown is best for this) and apply sideways to get a fine line, not on the flat 1/4" side--does this make sense? liquid eyeliner is so stark and 50's looking and this way is very natural and contemporary. the effect is also slightly smudged, in a desirable way. it should last you at least half the day, then freshen up for the evening. good luck!

M�A�C. Waterproof liquid eyeliner works great. Used and using it since 2007

I have found putting a foundation of powder on your eyelids before and after the eyeliner helps it not to smear.
