    Hate seeing your perfect winged eyeliner slowly smudging from the corners of your eyes after a few minutes? We put in so much effort, use a lot of tricks to get that perfect wing but it all goes in waste. To be honest, it isn't easy to draw that perfect liner and when it goes haywire, it hurts even more. 

    So, if you are an eyeliner person and want to make it last all day long, we have a few tips and tricks for you which you should follow. 

    1. Don't Use Moisturiser Around Eyelids 

    Using anything creamy around your eyelids can make your eyeliner melt. Avoid using a cream or moisturiser around your eyelids when doing your makeup. This will prevent your eyeliner from smudging throughout the day.

    2. Always Use A Water Resistant Eyeliner

    Choosing the right eyeliner is crucial if you want to stay all day long. Choose a water resistant, sweatproof eyeliner. Go for a liquid or gel formula as they are believed to last much longer than regular pencil or pen eyeliners. 

    3. Use An Eye Primer

    Just like your face, your eyes too need some prepping. Use an eye primer as it helps you keep your eyeliner in place. Eye primer is more like a cream which should be used on your eyelids before using any makeup. Make sure you don't use a lot of primer. 

    4. Apply Translucent Powder

    To ensure that your eyeliner doesn't move at all, use a translucent powder over it. Translcent or loose powder will take away any shine from the eyeliner and make it stay all day long. 

    Take some translucent powder on a fluffy brush and apply it all over your eyelids after doing your eyeliner. Make sure you blend it well so that there are no visible lines on the eyelids.

    5. Blend The Inner Corners of Your Eyes

    If you wear an eyeliner quite often, you must have noticed that often our eyeliner starts to wear off from the inner corners. We usually don't pay much attention to the inner corners and it ends up spoling our eyeliner look. To ensure that it doesn't melt, use some powder on a flat brush and blend in the inner corners. 

    6. Pat Some Eyeshadow On The Eyeliner 

    After applying your eyeliner, take some eyeshadow on a flat brush and dab it on the eyeliner. This trick will prevent your eyeshadow from smudging.

    7. Apply Multiple Layers

    Even if you are a pro at drawing that wing liner in one go, take some time to finish it off. How? After applying a single layer of eyeliner, apply another layer and another one. To ensure you don't spoil it all, go with thin lines. This will prevent your flick from going haywire through the day.

    8. Choose The Right Mascara 

    Yes, mascara does play an imortant role when it comes to the stay of your eyeliner. Which mascara you use on your eyelashes plays a key role in the longevity of your eyeliner. Avoid using non-waterproof mascaraas it can melt on your eyelids and further spoil your eyeliner. Always go for a mascara which comes with a waterproof and long lasting formula.
