Eyelid Base: Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials

They're inevitable as we mature: little broken capillaries on the eyelids. Cover up with a dab on each lid, blend upwards, and follow with eyeshadow (which won't crease all day) or go without.

Eyeliner: Aqua Eyes Stayput Liner

Originally created for water-ballet performers, this waterproof eyeliner uses evaporating silicone emollients so pigment glides on before it sets. For a softer look, smudge with your finger within 60 seconds. The liner lasts all day—without melting in the heat—and into the evening, too.
