Eye Makeup Endurance

Makeup Palette

Yesterday, I went to Sephora to treat myself to some belated birthday presents.

When I wear eye makeup, I’ve noticed that it always comes off an hour later. How can I show off my eye makeup skills if it leaks under my eyes and my mascara smudges?

I’ve finally found some tricks and products that can be a game changer for people who can’t wear eye makeup for longer than 20 minutes.

I’m definitely a product junky. I’m someone who buys both cheap and expensive products. I like to look into things and I’ve learned that some drugstore products work just as well as studio ones.

A month ago, I purchased a waterproof eye primer. This primer has made my beautiful eyeshadows last all day.

On top of that, I use Stilla palettes that have an amazing color pay off and last for hours on their own.

The biggest issue I had was finding an eyeliner that wouldn’t smudge. I tried everything from Urban Decay pencils to Smashbox. I’ve finally found an eyeliner that’s my saving grace—Marc Jacobs gel pencil. Gel liner has more pigment than just regular pencil and can last for a very long time.

I’m still figuring out more steps to keep my eye makeup on longer and cleaner. For those out there who struggle with the same makeup concerns as me, I suggest never to stop looking because, eventually, you may find products which are perfect for you.
