You know that moment when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and realize you’ve been running around all day with your eyeliner smudged and running below your eyes? Even though you try to avoid situations like those using waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliner, not all brands live up to their claims. It’s recommended to use a primer and setting spray to keep your liner intact. Whether you’re battling the heat or just want an eyeliner that stays on all day, here are some options for you to try out.
