OHHHHH, my friend knows the secret to LONG lasting eye makeup!!!
Mine always runs off, and why?
The secret is: EYE PRIMER! ;)
Before your apply anything onto your eyes, you use eye primer, and your makeup will stay on all day long ;)

You know, makeup wears off no matter what. During the day, we unconsciously rest our face in our hands, rub our eyes, etc. The makeup rubs off. There is no way to stop it. It's going to happen one way or another.

It's pretty hard to prevent this from happening but I would recommend using a face primer and a setting spray. My favorite is the urban decay setting spray. It's kinda expensive though, but it's awesome!

purchase a primer and apply that before your foundation. a light application of pressed powder afterwards can help.
usually a water-proof foundation will last longer,but i feel that it feels a bit too thick and fakey, especially with summer weather coming.

Use a spray in your face and the foundation using a stipple brush then use a translucent powder and your good to go
