There are several tips you can try to prevent eyeshadow from smudging:

  1. Use an eyeshadow primer: Apply a thin layer of eyeshadow primer to your eyelids before applying any eyeshadow. This will create a smooth and even base for your eyeshadow, making it less likely to smudge.
  2. Set your eyeshadow with powder: After applying your eyeshadow, lightly dust a translucent setting powder over it. This helps to absorb any excess moisture and oils on your eyelids, preventing smudging and creasing.
  3. Avoid applying eyeshadow on oily lids: If you have naturally oily eyelids, make sure to cleanse and mattify them before applying any eyeshadow. This can be done by gently blotting your lids with oil-absorbing sheets or using a mattifying primer specifically designed for eyelids.
  4. Use long-lasting and waterproof formulas: Opt for eyeshadows that are long-lasting and water-resistant. These formulas are less likely to smudge or fade throughout the day.
  5. Apply eyeshadow in thin layers: When applying your eyeshadow, build up the color in thin layers, rather than applying a thick layer all at once. This will help the eyeshadow adhere better to your lids and minimize the chances of smudging.
  6. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes: Try to refrain from touching or rubbing your eyes throughout the day, as this can smudge your eyeshadow. If you need to wipe or itch your eyes, do it gently with a clean tissue or a cotton swab.
  7. Use an eyeshadow sealant or setting spray: After applying your eyeshadow, you can spritz a small amount of eyeshadow sealant or setting spray on your eyelids. This will help lock the eyeshadow in place and reduce smudging.


By following these tips, you should be able to significantly reduce the chances of your eyeshadow smudging throughout the day.

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

  1. Start with a clean canvas: Make sure your eyelids are clean and free of any oils or residue. This will help the eyeshadow adhere better and last longer.
  2. Use an eyeshadow primer: Apply an eyeshadow primer or a base coat to your eyelids before applying eyeshadow. This will create a smooth, even surface and help the eyeshadow adhere better, preventing it from smudging.
  3. Set your eyelids: After applying the eyeshadow primer, set it with a translucent powder or a matte eyeshadow shade that matches your skin tone. This will create a dry base and help prevent smudging.
  4. Choose waterproof or long-wearing eyeshadows: Look for eyeshadows that are specifically labeled as waterproof or long-wearing. These formulas are designed to last longer and resist smudging.
  5. Avoid oily products on your eyelids: Avoid applying oily or greasy skincare products, lotions, or creams to your eyelids before applying eyeshadow. These products can break down the eyeshadow and cause it to smudge.
  6. Apply eyeshadow in thin layers: Instead of applying a thick layer of eyeshadow all at once, apply it in thin layers. This allows each layer to dry and adhere before applying the next, reducing the chances of smudging.
  7. Use an eyeshadow sealer: Consider using an eyeshadow sealer or mixing medium, which can help lock in the eyeshadow and prevent smudging.
  8. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes: Try to avoid touching or rubbing your eyes throughout the day. This can cause the eyeshadow to smudge and wear off.
  9. Set your eyeshadow with setting spray: After applying your eyeshadow, spritz a setting spray on your face, including your eyelids. This will help lock in the eyeshadow and prevent smudging.
  10. Consider using a waterproof eyeliner: If you're using eyeliner, consider switching to a waterproof formula. Waterproof eyeliners are less likely to smudge and can help prevent any smudging from transferring to your eyeshadow.
