If you spent a large part of your morning creating a fabulous beauty look, chances are you want it to stay in place all day. Whether you're dealing with oily skin, hot weather, or just regular daily wear, there are a few things you can do to keep your makeup in place all day long!
Everyone knows that the way we take care of our skin greatly affects the way our makeup looks. Make sure to always cleanse your skin before applying makeup to remove any sweat or dirt from the day/night before. Post-cleanse, you'll also want to apply your favorite moisturizer. You know what they say about hydrated lips holding lipstick longer? The same is true for your face! When your skin is hydrated and nourished, it doesn't need to look for moisture wherever it can get it (i.e. the water in your foundation).
Now that your skin is squeaky clean and well moisturized, you can apply the ultimate products for making your makeup stay: primers! Choose an all-over face primer depending on your skin's needs, such as moisture, color-correcting, mattifying, etc., and then apply it to the skin, being careful not to over work it (unlike moisturizer, which you want to blend into the skin, primer should create a sheer layer). For your eye makeup, opt for an eyeshadow primer to keep your products from creasing or fading.
Finally, complete your look with a fine mist of setting spray to ensure your hard work lasts! Hold a setting spray 30cm from your face and then mist as you would a hairspray. Let the product settle and you're all set!
