How to Prevent Your Eye Shadow From Creasing
Here are two easy steps and the products I use to prevent eye shadow creasing on my oily eyelids. My skin has been oily every since I can remember; from my face to my fingernails and I could never prevent eye shadow creasing for the longest time. I honestly didn’t know how to control the oils on my face. (It’s ok though oily facial skin tends to show signs of ageing less than people with normal to dry skin.)

Ok, back to what you came here for; how to prevent your eye shadow from creasing. I have been doing this for the past four months and it works great even on hot humid days!
Prevent Eye Shadow Creasing on Oily Eyelids – Step #1
I use double primer for double the power on oil absorbing; which means I first apply a translucent face primer on my lids and on top of it I apply an eyeshadow primer. The face primer I use is MagiX Face Perfector; It’s gel-to-powder formula provides invisible coverage for a naturally flawless finish and keeps skin looking naturally matte for, well it says for 7 full hours but honestly it’s longer like about 10 hours. It counteracts shine and absorbs oils without getting cakey. The eyeshadow primer is True Color Eyeshadow Primer. It too absorbs oils to prevent eye shadow creasing and fading. I have tried each product alone but honestly, they work awesome together for oily eyelids.
Prevent Eye Shadow Creasing on Oily Eyelids – Step #2
Set the primer-
Once I have applied both primers on my eyelids I than set it with a sheer coverage loose powder. When I don’t feel like wearing eyeshadow I do step #1 and apply the loose powder since my eyelids are darker than my skin tone I use the color that matches the closest to my skin tone. When I want to wear eyeshadow I do step #1 and use the loose powder but in the color Translucent; that way the color of the powder doesn’t interfere with the eyeshadow colors. The one I use is True Color Flawless Loose Powder; it’s super silky, fine textured powder conceals imperfections and provides a flawless matte finish.
I have found those three items work great for me. They prevent eye shadow creasing on my oily eyelids for close to ten hours without needing to use a setting spray. I hope this helps you prevent eye shadow creasing, cause I know how frustrating it is. 🙂
