There are several steps you can take to prevent eyeshadow from creasing:

  1. Use an eye primer: Apply an eye primer or a good quality concealer to create a smooth base for your eyeshadow. This helps to prevent creasing and keeps the eyeshadow in place for longer.
  2. Set your eyelids: After applying the eye primer, set it with a translucent setting powder or a matte eyeshadow that matches your skin tone. This helps to absorb any excess oil and provides a dry base for your eyeshadow.
  3. Avoid applying too much product: Use a light hand when applying eyeshadow. Applying too much product can make it more likely to crease. Build up the intensity gradually to ensure a smooth application.
  4. Use a quality eyeshadow formula: Opt for higher-quality eyeshadows that are known for their long-lasting and crease-resistant formulas. Matte eyeshadows typically have less tendency to crease compared to shimmery or glittery shades.
  5. Avoid applying heavy creams or oils to the eyelids: Heavy creams, oily moisturizers, or oily makeup removers can contribute to eyeshadow creasing. Use lightweight products and ensure your eyelids are dry before applying eyeshadow.
  6. Set your eyeshadow with a setting spray: Once you have finished applying your eyeshadow, spritz a setting spray over your entire face, including the eyes. This helps to lock the eyeshadow in place and prevents creasing throughout the day.
  7. Use an eyeshadow primer or powder on the lower lash line: If you experience creasing on your lower lash line, apply a primer or set with a powder before applying eyeshadow to help prevent it from smudging or creasing.


By following these steps, you can help prevent your eyeshadow from creasing and ensure long-lasting, crease-free eye makeup.

Additionally, here are a few more tips to prevent eyeshadow from creasing:

  • Avoid applying eyeshadow over wet or sticky concealer or foundation. Allow your base makeup to fully dry before applying eyeshadow.
  • If you have oily eyelids, consider using an oil-control primer specifically designed for the eyelids to absorb excess oil and keep your eyeshadow in place.
  • Apply your eyeshadow using a flat, dense brush or even your fingertips to ensure smooth and even application.
  • Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes throughout the day, as this can cause the eyeshadow to smudge and crease.
  • Use an eyeshadow that is suitable for your skin type. If you have oily eyelids, opt for powder eyeshadows rather than creamy or liquid formulas.
  • Set your eyeshadow with a translucent or matte setting powder. This helps to further absorb any excess oil and lock the eyeshadow in place.
  • Consider using a brush or your finger to press the eyeshadow onto your eyelids rather than swiping or brushing it on. This technique helps to pack the pigment onto your lids and prevents it from settling into creases.
  • If you find that your eyeshadow still creases despite taking preventive measures, you can try using an eyeshadow primer specifically designed for creased eyelids. These primers often have unique formulas that help to smooth out the appearance of creases and keep your eyeshadow intact.
