The rains can pose a problem for makeup, especially eye makeup. Don’t you invariably face the challenge of having to make it stay during the monsoons? After all, you don’t want to end up with runny mascara or liner on your brow bone. While the basic step towards fixing this is using everything waterproof, there are some other easy-peasy tips to make your eye makeup last longer. Here’s listing them down...
Use a primer
 

Use a primer

There’s a reason why we keep insisting on using a primer before you start with full blown makeup. A primer will not only allow you to layer your eye makeup to help it stay longer but it will also keep your eyelid shine free. While you apply it to the rest of your face, don’t forget to prime your eyelids because this will help eyeshadow stay on without any creasing problems. An effective eye makeup tip would be to rely on the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer. Besides making the skin look oil free, this product will help your eye makeup set perfectly.

Layer eyeliner with eyeshadow

An obvious choice for an eyeliner would be a waterproof one given the weather. But if you want to go that extra mile to ensure that your liner stays long enough, a smart solution would be to line your eyes, wait for it to dry and then pick some black eyeshadow using a liner brush and apply it on the liner. This will ensure that you get perfectly dark eyes as well as help your liner stay in place longer than most times. For this, we suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner that comes with a felt-tip formula, which makes application so easy while for the eyeshadow, go in with the black from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palette in Silver.

Apply concealer

Applying concealer on your eyelid after applying primer is just a way of ensuring that your eye makeup is layered and your liner and eyeshadows stay put. Make sure you choose a concealer that’s closer to your skin tone and go over with it on your eyelids. Blend it till it disappears into the skin and then apply the liner/eyeshadow. This will also help you in case you want your eyeshadow to pop. We suggest using the Lakmé White Intense Concealer Stick with SPF 20 for this purpose. This one comes in fair and medium shades that give you coverage along with protection from the sun.

Use the right brush

The wrong eye makeup brush can ruin it all. If you don’t use the right eyeshadow brush, application will not be as impactful as you’d like it to be. To apply an eyeliner, you can use an angled brush or a pointed brush. But an eyeshadow brush is either a fluffy brush or a smudger brush. If you don’t have these tools in place, there’s little possibility that your eye makeup will stay put.

Turn your powder eyeshadow into a creamy one
 

Turn your powder eyeshadow into a creamy one

While we love eyeshadow powders, making a creamy eyeshadow out of your powders can be a wise move if you want your eye makeup to stay longer. Just mix some Vaseline Petroleum Jelly with eyeshadow and store it in your fridge for a bit before using it. Not only will this help keep your eyeshadow in place but it will also keep your eyelids moisturised, thanks to the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in it.
