6 Ways to make your eye make up last longer

1) Use an eye shadow primer

    These guys keep eye shadows locked down all day. Here are the most popular ones. My fave is
    E.LF's Mineral Primer.

2) Use waterproof liner so that it won't smudge or budge

I recommend Make Up Atelier Paris Gel eye liners for high end because they do not budge at all, I mean nada. I've also heard Make Up For Ever Aqua liners are brilliant too (image from Sephora.)  For low end I recommend Maybelline Gel liners and Soap and Glory Smoulder Kohl pencil (it's waterproof and has a nifty pencil sharpener in the lid.)

3) Go over eye liner with eye shadow (in the same colour) to set the liner. 
Use an angled brush to do this or a flat edged eye liner brush e.g.Mac 212 or 266. (This principle is similar to using setting powder to set your foundation) This has the added bonus of enhancing and correcting the original liner.

4) Heat up your eyelash curler.

For metal lash curlers only- gently warm up the metal head of the lash curler with a hair dryer. Be sure to test the temperature against your arm or back of your hand before using it. Place on your lash line and hold for 20 seconds. If you are serious about curling lases there are also heated ones available

5) Use gel liner to anchor the base of the eyelashes in a lift position and keep the curl for longer.

 Get hold of an eyeslash curler. Run gel liner across the rubber pad. Leave for 20 seconds to become tacky. Finally curl your lashes right at the base of the lash, hold for 20-50 seconds.( It is recommended to start with 20 seconds first and see what effect you get (to prevent pulling your eyelashes out.) This is a tip from Goss Make Up artist. I've explained this technique as best as I can but you can also see Goss 's Tutorial HERE

6) Use a waterproof mascara because it will hold lash curl.
