    Default Eyeshadow transfer problem, please help

    I have this problem where if I'm using sparkly powder eyeshadow, it transfers in a line to the top of my eyelid when I blink. Any ideas how to stop this happening because it looks really stupid when it happens...

    The same thing happens to me. Try using a primer. I've never tried it but I have heard that it is the only thing that will prevent eyeshadow from gathering in the creases. My remedy was to stop wearing shimmery eye shadow. Good luck!

    Mary Kay has an eye primer that I hoarded when I "quit". I LOVE THAT STUFF! I've tried using regular foundation as a base and concealer, it never worked. I don't know where my eyeshadow goes I just know I put it on and within 30 minutes it's gone. Doesn't matter what brand it is either. You put a little bit and I do mean a little, of the primer on your lids then apply the shadow normally. It keeps it in place and the colors are more vibrant. I've seen other brands in the store but like I said, I hoarded. Once I get on the last tube, I'll try a less expensive brand.

    Sparkly eyeshadow usually does this so either try a matt version and add a little sparkle on top or use a primer or a little foundation as a base.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Yeah I just use a bit of foundation on my eyelids before I put on shadow. It works pretty good for that.

    here, soon to be over there


    Are you setting the foundation on your lid with translucent powder? That helps with keeping things where they should be.

    I echo the primer idea, though I just use powder on my lids.

    Is your eye shadow powder or a creme?
