Use good quality products
Rule number one for keeping your makeup in place for longer is to use good quality products. Admittedly, some budget beauty brands can be fantastic, but not all products are born equal. If you want your makeup to stay in place for longer, you need to be willing to invest in it. Especially, when it comes to your base makeup – the glue that holds everything else in place. It might cost you more, but if you want your makeup to stay in place, you need to opt for high-quality products. Trust me; it makes a difference.
Take good care of your skin
If you want your makeup to stay in place all day, it’s essential that you take good care of your skin. This is because, if you don’t, your skin may become dry, which can make it harder for makeup to stick. The better condition your skin is in, the longer your makeup will stay in place each day. So, make the time to take care of your skin, and you’ll see a difference in how long your makeup stays in place. Aim to cleanse and tone your skin each day, and exfoliate it once or twice a week. This will keep it soft and smooth – ideal for applying makeup to.
Always apply moisturizer before your base
The first thing that your makeup routine should consist of is applying moisturizer to your skin. This will help to hydrate the skin and make it look fresher and healthier. The best moisturizer to use is one that’s light and soaks in quickly, and that also has built-in SPF protection. This is because this will help to keep your skin soft and smooth, and will protect you from suffering sun damage, like sun spots. Applying face cream before your primer will help the primer to stick to your skin, creating the perfect base for using to apply your makeup to.
Make sure to use primer
If you want to give your makeup a smooth, even surface to stick to, it’s essential that you use primer. Ideally, you want to opt for a primer that smoothes and mattifies the skin, blurring imperfections. This will give you a smooth surface to apply your foundation to, making it more likely that it will stay in place for longer.
Layer up your foundation and concealer
A great tip for keeping your foundation and concealer in place for longer is to layer it up. That way, when some of it rubs off, there will be more underneath to replace it. Start off using a Beauty Blender to dot foundation onto your face, then apply concealer under your eyes and around your nose. Then apply another layer of foundation, followed by more concealer. Make sure that this looks natural, as the last thing you want is to end up with makeup that looks cakey.
Set in place with pressed powder
The next step is to set your makeup in place with a pressed powder. There are lots of these to choose from, but one of the best ones comes from Ben Nye cosmetics. It’s a powder that the professionals swear by when it comes to setting makeup in place, so is definitely one that’s worth investing in. Or, if you’d rather a cheaper option, there are lots of budget makeup brands that sell setting powders, it’s just a case of finding one that works for you.
Use a makeup setting spray
As well as setting your makeup in place with a pressed powder, it’s also worth using a makeup setting spray. For the warmer summer months, a makeup setting spray can be a lifesaver as it can make your makeup water and sweat proof. This can help to ensure that your makeup will stay in place for longer. There are lots of good brands to choose from; it’s just a case of choosing a spray that works for you.
See, it is possible to keep your makeup in place all day. It’s just a case of knowing the best way to go about it; that’s all.
