How Can I Avoid Raccoon-Eyes?

How to keep your eye makeup from melting and smudging.
Q. I use waterproof eye makeup, but it never stays put. Any raccoon-proofing tips?

A. The longest-lasting liners are liquid. "They can hold up for 24 hours," says Michelle Affronti, a makeup artist in Los Angeles. To keep your mascara from sliding south, apply face powder underneath eyes with a fluffy eye shadow brush. My favorite, Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Perfecting Mineral Concentrate ($9.95, drugstores, at left), has an attached brush that deposits the right amount.
