How can I prevent smudging when applied on the inner rim?
I've tried many eyeliners and I must say that this collection is pretty great. When worn as traditional liner along the lash line they don't budge, but today I used it on the upper inner rim for the first time with a primer underneath. The smudging wasn't terrible compared to other brands I've used, but still there. What else can I do to guard against smudging/running on the inner rim because I really like the look when first applied. Other brands I've already tried are Makeup Forever, Tarte, & Hourglass. Again, for me, they all work great as liner, but not on the inner rim. Thanks.

Dust a bit of loose powder over the top of the liner--and use eyelid primer under the eyeliner.

Sometimes it's really hard to stop the inner rim or waterline from smudging and/or disappearing on you during the day. One thing you can do (and I personally do) to add staying power, is to use an eyeliner brush with a matte eyeshadow (or shimmer if that's what you'd prefer, but I advise you stay away from glitter) that completely or closely matches the eyeliner you've used and dip the brush into the shadow, tap it off (make sure you tap it off! You don't want that extra shadow under your eye, or worse IN it!) and gently pat it into the waterline over the liner. This is not for everyone, some people's eyes may be to sensitive to tolerate eyeshadow in the waterline, but I have found it works fine for most. I hope this helps! :)
