Beauty Fear: Raccoon Eyes
6 1 11
As heat and humidity continue to climb, we show you how to keep your eye shadow, liner, and mascara in place, and avoid dreaded raccoon eyes.
Prevent eye shadow from creeping by applying primer to lids before applying eye makeup. This step keeps eye shadow from sliding and settling into fine lines, which create dark rings around the eyes (the raccoon effect). Eliminate shadow creasing and creeping with Guerlain Ombre Eclat Eye Shadow Primer. The smoothing primer base helps eye makeup adhere to lids to ensure true, long-lasting color.
A light dusting of setting powder underneath eyes help to create a barrier and prevent moisture from disturbing the placement of eye makeup products. We like Le Metier Eye Brightening and Setting Powder because it conceals imperfections, sets makeup, and illuminates all in one step. It is the ultimate under eye perfector.
For long-lasting, water resistant eyeliner, go the route of a gel based formula like Estee Lauder Doublewear Stay Gel Eyeliner. Once gel liner is applied and set, coverage can last for up to 12 hours without smearing or creasing. Raccoon eyes, solved!
Avoid the midday eye makeup meltdown by going waterproof. These mascaras and liners are less likely to give in to high heat and humidity because they are formulated to withstand moisture. Try Le Metier Anamorphic Lash Waterproof Mascara, a smudge-proof formula that lasts all day without a single budge.
