Finding Smudge Proof Eye Makeup

December 2, 2008

Model with heavy eye makeup and wet hairFor easy to apply, smudge proof eyeliner, just use eye shadow applied with either a slightly moistened sponge eye makeup applicator or a cotton swab. I prefer to use dark brown eyeshadow applied with a cotton swab. The best thing about using a cotton swab is that they are relatively inexpensive (usually 150 for $1) and you can toss it once you are done.


Source: The cotton swab package does state it can be used for makeup application.

I am looking for a mascara that is reasonably priced and doesn't turn me into a raccoon by smudging under my eyes. I also want one that stays on all day, but is easy to take off when it's time to do so.

Is there such a product on the market today? If there is, I haven't found it yet. Please let me know if you have.

I've been wearing mascara for almost 20 years. I have found out that no matter the cost, if the mascara is waterproof, it will not smudge. An inexpensive way to remove stuck on mascara is to get a little peice of paper towel and put baby oil on it.


Wipe your eyelashes, maybe even pinch your eyelashes with it. When eye lashes are clean wash your face good. If any oil is left on, this will make the mascara smudge. Hope this helps....

I can never seem to find eyeliner or mascara that does not eventually leave smudges under my eyes and on my eyelids. Any suggestions?
