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

The best eyeliner I've found is Merle Norman. It's eyeliner in a medium-sized jar, and you apply it with your own brush. It costs $20 and comes in black and dark brown. (07/28/2009)
I've always had the same problem. I've never been able to figure out how some women wear any old brand of eye makeup and not have it smudge. Here are three products that work well for me, though: Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner, Cover Girl Volume Exact Waterproof Mascara, and Avon Super Full Waterproof Mascara. I also powder my eyelids and under my eyes before I apply my eye makeup. Good luck. (07/28/2009)
The first makeup I put on is mascara, then if I smear it on my skin I can clean it off easily without affecting foundation, eyeshadow, etc.
Max Factor Aqualash mascara (available in UK) is the only one I have ever found that doesn't come off during the day. You can remove it easily and cheaply with Aqueous Cream. I have not found an eyeliner that does not smudge. (07/30/2009)

My daughter uses Mark eyeliner pencil, sold by Avon. She liked it so much that when there was a sale on it she bought 4 more. She paid around $20.00 for all 4. Even when there not on sale they are under $10.00 each. (07/30/2009)
Avon Wash Off Waterproof mascara. (07/30/2009)
Avon is very good, but I have very sensitive eyes and I swear by Almay or Loreal mascara. As for eyeliner smudge, brush with a similar color eyeshadow or translucent powder. Liquid smears less. Also try mineral eye liner and gel eyeliner applied with a brush. (08/18/2009)
Wet and Wild H2O-Proof liquid Eyeliner doesn't smudge, is really waterproof (I swim a lot) and is super-cheap. (08/23/2009)
