    Before you start applying foundation on your eyelids, you should make sure that eyelids are clean and moisturised. Moisturising the eye area will protect the delicate tissues, and will allow the foundation to be applied in a proper manner. To moisturise the eye area, take a cotton ball and moisten it before rubbing on the eye area. It will remove any dirt or oil from the skin. Then rub your eyelids gently with the help of your fingers, to blend in the moisturiser.
