        1. BHCosmetics Eye and Lip Primer and Urban Decay Primer Potion. 🙂

          Water proof eyeliners like Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner (Comes in a twisty pen type packaging.) or Maybelline Gel liner and Inglot Gel liner. 🙂

  1. Hi Tanu,
    Even i face this problem with pencil eyeliners. they start fading and spread to my crease:(
    though this is not the case wiht the liquid eyeliners. suggestions please

  2. I would also suggest applying a base/concealer and then applying a gel eyeliner. Gel eyeliners do not smudge or fade away but if you have a long day ahead of you, reapplication might be required after 5 to 6 hours.

      1. maybelline is affordable and good. about 350 bucks I think.. MAC is also very good..slightly more expensive..around 1000 bucks

  3. NYX hd e/s base is gr8.. use maybelline gel liners.. they r easily available… or if nothing then use a stick basd concealer topped of with loose powder(compact, if thhts availble) and then apply ur eye makeup.. it shud definitely stay on longer :waytogo:

    1. :thanks: :thanks: nyx available in delhi..?
      i am using covergirl concealer but that is not very good.. plz suggest some good concealer and compact /loose powder.. ?:) ?:)

      1. a search on IMBB should yield good results for compact/loose powder/concealer but my personal favourites are the MAC concealer and the MAC satin finish compact. Loose powder me also on the hunt for but i have heard the TBS loose powder is very good..

      2. oh gr8 ive found nyx e/s base.. cud u plz tell me which among d 3 shud i buy…
        white, white pearl or neutral…
        ive heard that white base shows eyeshadow color d best…

  4. Hi tanu..even i faced same issue..i tried liquid liners n pencils..but atlast i found my HG pencil..that is revlon colorstay one stroke defining wont smudge..soo soft n creamy..i tried black color..blackest black i hav ever totaly loving it..costs around 515rs/-..worth trying..stays al the day..

  5. n also..i heard that colorbar i-glide pencils r also very good..costs around 350/-..if u want pencil at lesser price..u can try these pencils..both revlon n colorbar pencils are available in different colors..

  6. Tanu, i often face the same issue… i guess its prolly of the small eye lids u have…(even i have small eye lids)
    wht u can do is apply a thin line of u r liner, use good quality eye pencils /liners( i use faces eye pencils now and thy dont crease and gel liners)
    u can also use an eye primer or set ur liners with an eye shadow 🙂

  7. I do not use concealer, but use a little bit of oil free foundation and then apply oil free compact powder. My own way.. Then I apply liquid eyeliner.. haven’t tried gel eyeliners..
    I use Revlon foundation and lakme compact.. Hope this helps..

  8. I use an eyeshadow primer and apply some loose powder or compact powder on top of it. Sometime is even put a wash of matte skin tone color eyeshadow . That prevents the creasing and oiliness form my lids. 🙂

  9. try priming ur lids frst tn use gel liner.they nevr fade away unles u remve wd a makeup remvr..pencils r sft n tend 2 smudge expect sm exclnt ones esp. Colorbar,lakme 9 to 5,lakme glide on ones..deborah milano r gud 2..gud luck :waytogo:

  10. thanks for all the suggestions… i think that i should buy mac paint pot… that seems to be everyone’s fav..searched for it… 🙂 🙂

  11. Hi guys! I just wanted to know(though this question isnt really apt for this category) but..
    I put kajal on my waterline and it never stays. After a while, it all smudges and I get raccoon eyes. So I read somewhere I should use powder. Now, Im confused as to what kind of powder exactly.. Someone told me I should just use the Ponds talcum and put a bit under the eyes.. and kajal will never smudge. Is that right? or are there some other products specifically for this purpose? PLEASE help. You guys are really intelligent! 🙂 😉
