Oily eyelids can be the scourge of anyone looking to pull off a serious liner look. When your lids are oily, it can make your makeup slip, slide, and smudge. But that doesn't mean you can't achieve a sharp cat eye look. You just need to discover the best eyeliners for oily lids — because yes, they exist!
Unfortunately, there is nothing you can really do about oily eyelids. Like your skin type, how oily your lids are has everything to do with your body composition and not much else. Folks with grease on the lids just have more oil-producing glands on that part of their face — and that's totally normal.
The easiest way to cut this problem off at the knees is to invest in a good eye primer to pop on before you apply shadow or liner. That way, you're ensuring that things stick instead of slide.
But when it comes to liner specifically, look for smudge-proof and/or waterproof formulas. Liquids and powders also tend to be more budge-proof than regular pencil liners for two different reasons. Liquids dry down and stick to the lid, and powders soak up oil, helping them to stick better, too.
