What to use to keep your eyeshadow from creasing? Apply a translucent powder for a matte layer.
Use a small makeup brush to apply the powder to your eyelids using soft strokes. Visit your local beauty store and ask for an under-eye setting powder, or just a translucent powder for oily skin.

What do you put on eyelids before eyeshadow? Start with an eye shadow primer: “It’s good to set your eye shadow by starting with a primer. This helps to not only hold the shadow in place, but also preps the eyelid, getting rid of discoloration,” Cherman said.
