Oily Eyelids? Use a Primer

We're smack dab in the middle of the hottest month of the year. The heat and humidity can often times bring oily eyelids.  When you've just created the perfect eye makeup,  this is a problem.

You don't have to ditch the look because of the heat! A couple extra steps will help resolve this issue.  The first: use a primer.  Think of a primer as glue or a magnet.  It will help the eyeshadow stay in place for hours.

There are primers for your entire face, and then primers just for your eyes.  The best you can buy is Urban Decay's Eye shadow primer potion.  Swiping it over your lid before putting on your makeup can help to avoid the crease and keep you looking smoky hot all night long.

However, if you're not sure you want to spend money on a new product, check out the other two tips we have for oily eyelids. You might find yourself able to control the crease without spending a cent.
