Tips On How To Make Your Makeup Last Longer
No one wants to waste time applying and perfecting makeup if it’s just going to be ruined and melted in a few hours, especially when you’re on the go and working. To help make it worth your while, here are four tips on how to keep your makeup looking fresh and flawless throughout the day! These have definitely worked for me and I wanted to share them with you!
1) Opt for waterproof eyeliners and mascaras to prevent running and smudging throughout the day! No one wants to look like a raccoon a few hours after taking the time to put makeup on! Great thing is more and more products are becoming long-lasting and waterproof, such as eye shadow and even foundation. Life saver!
2) Primer, primer, primer! Foundation primers are a great way to even out skin tone, help keep your makeup smooth and last all day, and help soak up any extra oil. There are makeup primers for just about every skin type so you don’t have to worry! I have very oily skin so having a foundation primer that helps control shine is AMAZING. If you’re prone to redness, they have tinted primers to help blend and even out your skin tone before applying foundation.
3) Keep your hands off!! This is one of the biggest mistakes many women make, including me. Constantly touching your face or eyes throughout the day not only ruins your makeup but it can also lead to breakouts by spreading oil and bacteria.
4) Pack your essentials (items that you can easily use for touch ups) in a small makeup bag that you can take on the go with you. Examples of these items are: concealer, lipstick, cream blush, blotting sheets, eye drops, and cream blush.
