Glossy lids might be an haute couture look but greasy lids? Not really. Dealing with oily lids can be quite annoying especially during summer when anything you put on your eyelids comes melting down. The most delicate part of your face often produces more oil than you would want it to and there are a number of reasons why it happens, the most being oily skin. So if you’re tired of doing and redoing your eye makeup here are a few tricks that can help.

Wash your full face
 

Wash your full face

While washing your face don’t ignore your eyelids. They are naturally oilier than the rest of your face and not washing them properly means excess oil accumulation. However, be gentle when you’re doing so as the skin is very delicate and can lead to flakiness.

Use primer
 

Use primer

Just like the rest of your face, your eye lids too require primer to remain dry and create an even base. Applying the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer ensures your makeup stays put for a long time.

Use powder based products
 

Use powder based products

Stay away from cream eye shadow and embrace powder based products like the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette to tackle excessive oiliness. Replace your liquid eyeliner with a dry pencil formula such as the Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Eyeliner.

Blot regularly
 

Blot regularly

Blotting papers are a blessing in disguise. Use them to not just get rid of the shine on your t-zone but also your eyelids. We suggest you to start your day by blotting your eyelids to lift away all the oil.

Translucent powder

Dust some translucent powder on your upper and lower eyelids after you finish applying your eye makeup. It helps absorb excess oil and keeps your makeup in place throughout the day.
