Hey, no judgement: we've all got our reasons for wanting to look presentable, even, and sometimes especially, when we're feeling our worst. If you must have your shadow and liner at all costs, stick to waterproof formulas, and only after you've applied a base. The holy grail of shadow primers is NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($24 at Sephora), a powdery formula that performs exactly as it promises, even on extremely oily (or teary) lids. As far as brands go, we think Make Up For Ever does the most reliable waterproof products on the market — their Aqua Cream shadows ($23 at Sephora) and Aqua Eyes liners ($18 at Sephora) are virtually unshakable thanks to their slightly greasy, water-repelling formulas.
