A glamorous eye-makeup look can fall flat when your shadow shifts and creeps into the crease. Eyeshadow creasing is a common, albeit frustrating, occurrence. Create a longer-lasting look by targeting the oil that accumulates on your eyelid and results in displaced shadow.

Like other cosmetic products, your shadows can crease, creating an unnatural and caked-on appearance. Eyeshadow, in particular, is susceptible to creasing because of oil on your eyelids. This oil interacts with the eye color, causing it to slide and fall into the crease of your lid. Your eyeliner also might shift from your lash line to the crease, compounding the problem.

Oily eyelids are the cause of shadow creasing, so the solution begins with targeting this oil. Your lids naturally produce oil, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t minimize its effects.
