How to keep Eyeliner from Smudging

I was talking to a friend the other day and she was telling me whenever she puts on eyeliner it smudges up onto the upper lids. Right away I wanted to figure out why this was happening and what could be done to fix it. Through a little bit of research I discovered several tips that help keep eyeliner from migrating to the upper lid and wanted to share them with you.

1 / Blot the upper and lower lids with a tissue to remove any excess oil.
2 / Apply a good eyelid primer, like Smashbox eyelid primer.
3 / Swipe a thin line of a waterproof eyeliner, try Stila Stay-all-day waterproof liquid liner.
4 / Lightly dust your lids with a translucent powder or eyeshadow that matches the liner to set it.
5 / Avoid heavy eye creams during the day which can cause liners to smudge more easily.
