What’s worse than spending hours putting on makeup, knowing it can only last a few hours? Many of us have struggled to keep our makeup on longer. Here are some tips and advice to make your makeup last longer.
Care your skin
A painter always chooses a clean, smooth new canvas for his paintings. Also, before applying makeup, it is important that our skin is clean, hydrated and hydrated. If your skin is not healthy and clean, then your makeup will not look good and it will not stay for long either. Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy skin. For the exterior, we must choose the right products that respond to our concerns.
Cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating are essential steps for flawless skin. These steps should be included in everyone’s skin care regimen to obtain clear and healthy skin.
The primer is a base coat for all your makeup. Use primer on both your face and eyes. It helps prevent makeup from wrinkling and is a great way to make your makeup last longer. There are many primers depending on your requirements and preferences. Whether you want a glossy or a matte one, there are all kinds of primer for different skin types.
Always apply foundation first
Many women tend to apply concealer first, then foundation. This is the wrong approach, the reason being how both are applied. Concealer is applied in gentle strokes, while foundation trails and blends all over the face. Also use an oil-free foundation. If you apply the concealer first, all of the concealer will wash away with the foundation, resulting in uneven makeup application.
Remove excess oil
Although extra oily and hydrated skin has its benefits of reducing wrinkles and fine lines, it gives the appearance of oily skin. No makeup looks good or lasts long if your skin is oily; only results in makeup stains. Always carry face powder and blotting paper with you so you can continue to remove oil and shine from your skin. This step will not only last your makeup longer, but it will also ensure that your makeup looks good.
Avoid touching your face
We literally use our hands all the time because a lot of dirt and oil accumulates on our hands. If you are in the habit of touching your face a lot, then you are transferring oil and dirt to your face. By avoiding touching your face, facial oil is minimized and makeup is kept intact. The more you touch your face, the more the makeup will come off, causing the makeup to be ruined and the makeup to come off sooner. If you are in the habit of touching your face, you can use a setting spray, this will lessen the need to touch your face and keep your makeup in place.
Using the right tools
If you think that having the best products will result in long-lasting makeup, you are wrong. Makeup tools are just as important as makeup products that affect the duration of your makeup. Using quality brushes and sponges will ensure good coverage and blended makeup.
Using loose powder to set makeup is a great option when you don’t want to feel like you’ve added something extra to your skin. A small amount of loose powder goes a long way with a brush and reduces oiliness and shine from the skin. You can also layer your cream or liquid based products with a matching powder.
