11:59 am - Makeup time~
 Makeup question~!

I've noticed that the area around my eyes (like usually where you would put on eyeliner and in the corners) tends to get oily very quickly so it's a hassle using eye makeup (liner and shadow mostly) since it never stays on very long.  All of the waterproof liners I've tried never seem to stand a chance against the natural oils and I tend to end up looking like a panda at the end of the day (I need oil proof, not waterproof lol).  

I did a quick google search and found some useful suggestions, but since my knowledge of makeup isn't so sophisticated I'm hoping someone can help clear some questions up for me.

I have a face primer I use on my nose, cheeks, forehead and chin before putting on powder, can I use that same primer on my eyes?  Will it work ok?  Or, can I just use my face powder as a base for my eye makeup?  Will it absorb the oil or will the oil just make it all smudgy like it does to my eyeshadow?  What exactly does eye makeup base look like anyway?  I've never heard of it before this, and so I don't know .  Does it look like a powder?  Like foundation? Is it clear? Skin-coloured? 

Ugh, I hate having oily skin, I know naturally it's suppose to be good but where makeup's concerned it's such a pain >_<

Firstly, eye primer is sold as a different product as face primer. But dermatologically speaking, there's no difference between the skin on your eyes and the skin on the rest of your face, so there's really no difference. Just try it out first and really, the worst that can probably happen is that it doesn't work.
The powder base should actually help absorb the oil and some foundations actually work pretty well in that aspect too. I've never had problems with oil uh... soaking through foundation but if you do think there's a bit of shine going on, blot then touch up again with a light dust of powder. (I'm assuming that we're talking about light, daily make up here.)
And I've never heard of eye makeup base before either. ^^;

Hope this has been of some help.

Dunno ab't makeup, but having oily skin is definitely good. You'll realise that in 30 years ;)
