Urban decay eye primer works but makes crepey skin worse what next?
Really disappointed thought I'd found the solution I have very oily eyelids enough oil to fry chips and then do an oil change on the car this is no exaggeration! However I am 55 and skin around eyes is not smooth anymore fine lines , crepey thin drooping skin oh dear this sounds really depressing. On a positive note I can disguise all this with carefully applied eyemakeup but everything creases and disappears after a couple of hours and eyeliner melts.
The urban decay eye primer is brilliant nothing moves however not suitable for my mature skin as although I keep my skin really hydrated it just dries it out and makes me old even older the skin on my eyelids looks like crepe paper . What else could I try or I am resigned to redoing my eyemakeup three times a day! I do use facial primer with none of these problems. Your suggestions are eagerly waited as the problem is always worse in the summer (that's if we get one).
Hedwig glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I need my makeup my eyes need defining well my whole face does and I refuse to be one of those ladies that feel they have " disappeared " to the world once they reach a certain age. Came back from a supermarket trip eyeshadow creased and eyeliner fading its Bobbi brown long wear gel ffs and now after an hour long run wish I had never bothered!
