The eyeliner is ideal for enlarging the eyes and giving them a sophisticated look. However, sometimes we can suffer from the dreaded raccoon effect: the running eyeliner that undoes our elegant look and creates marked dark circles. But if you’ve thought about removing eyeliner from your makeup kit, think again.
The eyeliner can be run for multiple reasons and OnMujer can help you detect them so that you always have impeccable makeup.
Here are some practical tips so that your eyeliner does not run and always stays in place.
1 Use good quality eyeliners
Sometimes cheap seems to be the most attractive, but buying quality makeup is indispensable for a fabulous look and for good skin care. Ask your friends, hairdresser, makeup artist which eyeliner he recommends. A good quality eyeliner will not affect your eyes, it will dry your eyelids, it will last much longer and it will not run at the least desired times.
Take into account the brand and your skin type, as there are specialized eyeliners for dry or oily skin.
2 Use waterproof eyeliners
If you live in a particularly hot or humid city, using a waterproof eyeliner may be the best option. Liquid eyeliners usually have waterproof versions. However, waterproof eyeliners often have one flaw: they are very difficult to remove. This is why they are not recommended for beginners, since you can spend a lot of time fixing your makeup if you do not manage to do it right the first time.
3 Remove fat from your face
Indeed, oily skin will quickly damage our makeup, so you will have to constantly touch it up. It is advisable to clean the face before applying any type of makeup and apply a compact foundation and powder before applying the eyeliner pencil to prevent the eyeliner from running. The foundation will moisturize your skin, while the powder will remove excess oil.
4 Tip: Cover the eyeliner with shade
Natalia Bravo, Venezuelan makeup artist, shares with us the following tip: “Applying a little shade of the same color of the eyeliner (either pencil or liquid) makes the makeup fix. It’s one of the hacks we use to give more duration to makeup, especially eye makeup.”
