Have you tried a creme eye shadow?  It lasts longer and can act as a base to add powder shadow.  When I use both the creme and a powder I notice it lasts a lot longer.

Try Urban Decay Primer Potion.  It really makes your eye makeup stay on all day.

There was a great post about using chafing cream as a makeup base. I can’t remember what the post was called, but yes, common chaffing cream has very similiar ingredients to makeup primer. Worth a try.

Sometimes I think certain brands react to my skin oils in different ways, so some shadows crease and others stay. I’ve had excellent luck with E.L.F. eyes lips face (available online or at Target). They’re great because you can get a quad of colors for 1 dollar.

Clinique makes (or made) an eyeshadow primer that worked really well. Now I just use a creme and put the powder shadow on top. It holds really well all day!

I have that problem also.  I use this:

It’s cheaper than other brands and works!!  I originally bought it to learn how to use it for the wedding, but now I use it for work also.  My eye makeup lasts all day now. Smile

by the way even cream eye shadows make a crease on me within a couple of hours.

Mine did that too until I discovered eye primer! I use Urban Decay Eye Priming Potion. It’s like magic, seriously. My eyeshadow stays put for 12+ hours now. I think Miss Scissors mentioned that in one of her make-up product posts, as well!

I have the same problem–i’m 1/4 korean and my eyelids are small (almond, shallow set) and I blink off eye makeup pretty easily. You can fix this by using an eyelid primer, foundation, powder, then setting it. It’s a pain but it works. You have to prep your eye! My mascara touches my eye bone, too so I always use waterproof.

I also use Urban Decay Primer Potion. Especially if you use mineral powder like Bare Minerals, it helps to keep the color down.
