How can I keep my eye shadow in place?

Keep That Eye Shadow in Line

Eye shadow won't stay put? A common makeup problem is wandering eye shadow—sprinklings finding their way to other parts of your face, other than your lids. No worries, however, this problem can easily be resolved. Before applying the shadow, tap all excess powder from your brush. Keep in mind that some eye shadows are much more powdery than others so make smart decisions when purchasing. Want to know a great trick? Before applying your eye shadow, apply a foundation and concealer to the eye area. Then, apply your shadow followed by liner and mascara. Finally, apply foundation to the remaining areas of the face evenly.
