Raise your hand if you’re constantly annoyed by your makeup melting halfway through the day. It can be doubly daunting when you spend a lot of time in the morning trying to achieve the perfect makeup look, only to find that you have to constantly re-apply or touchup your makeup throughout the day. We get you. That is why we have come up with this beauty guide to help you extend the life of your makeup.
Making your makeup last all day is not an impossible feat. It is all about using the right products and makeup techniques. Try these recommended tips to make your makeup last the entire day, no matter what your skin type may be!
Moisturise Your Skin
This is an important step to allowing your makeup to be absorbed and stay on your skin for a long time. You want it to be clean and fresh. When skin is properly hydrated, it is less likely to become oily or dry out. Both of these conditions can ruin your makeup quickly. Invest in the right moisturizing product for your skin type.
Before putting on your makeup base, it is a must to use a primer. A lot of women believe that it is an unnecessary step and can even be an extra cost of money. However, using primer can extend the life of your makeup. The primer serves as base to allow your foundation to hold onto the skin even as it becomes dry or overly moisturized. There are a wide range of primers to choose from in the market so make sure you choose the right one for your skin.
Setting Concealer Properly
Aside from primer, using concealer the right way is an integral component in a long-lasting makeup. Give your concealer enough time to set after application. Also, proper blending is a crucial factor in a beautiful makeup look.
Long Lasting Lip Colour
If you thought primers are only good for your skin and cheeks, think again. You can also use a primer on your lips. Make sure you keep those puckers moisturized before putting on lipstick. Then, apply a sheer layer of translucent primer so that your lipstick stays longer without the risk of bleeding out.
Setting Spray or Powder
This is the final and most crucial step in allowing your makeup to last the entire day. When you are done doing your makeup, apply setting powder or spray. This acts as a protective layer for your skin from the elements that can cause your makeup to wilt quickly. A word of warning though: make sure that you apply the product only after you have finished doing your makeup.
