Prevent Eye Shadow Creasing
How to Prevent Your Eye Shadow From Creasing
Here are the two easy steps and the products I use to prevent eye shadow creasing on my oily eyelids. My skin has been oily ever since I can remember; from my face to my fingernails. I would work so hard on my eyeshadow, to only have it be destroyed in a couple of hours by my oily eyelids. I could never prevent eye shadow creasing for the longest time no matter the eye primer.
As time passed and after trial and error I finally have learned how to keep my facial oils under control and my eyeshadow in place for hours now; click to read on how I care for my oily facial skin.
Okay, so for what you came here for; how to prevent your eye shadow from creasing. I have been doing this for a while now and it works great even on hot humid days!

Prevent Eye Shadow Creasing on Oily Eyelids – Step #1
Prime the Eye –
I use two primers on my oily eyelids for double the power on oil-absorbing. First I apply a translucent face primer on my eyelids. The face primer I use is MagiX Face Perfector; Its 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 which makes it perfect for oily eyelids and face. Next, since I have dark purplish circles all around my eyes, I apply a color corrector concealer; I personally use LA Girl Pro High Definition Concealer in peach it helps neutralizes the dark circles. If you don’t have dark circles you can skip that product and go on to the next.
After applying the face primer and color corrector I then apply an eye primer. I have been using Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow primer, which does hold up very well but not alone. I have tried each product alone but honestly, they work best together with the help of the final product I use.

Ready Set Done-
Once I have primed my eyelids I then apply a fine translucent setting powder all over my eyelids with a foundation brush. I found this foundation brush is a good size for my eyelids, it’s not too small or too big, note I have small eyelids. I set my eyelids with L’Oreal Infallible loose setting powder; it’s super silky, weightless, and it controls shine. Once I have done all this I brush off any excess powder with a powder brush followed by my favorite eyeshadow.
I have found those three products work great together. They prevent eye shadow creasing on my oily eyelids for close to twelve hours without needing to use a setting spray. I hope this helps you prevent eye shadow creasing, because I know how frustrating it is. 🙂
