3 Hacks for Longer Lasting Makeup

Doing your makeup takes precious time and effort. You apply layer after layer to achieve the perfect look. Whether you are going au natural or full-on glam, you want your makeup to stay on all day long! Make the most of any makeup look by making sure it lasts all day. Use these three proven ways to keep that glow in place for the world to see.

Primed to perfection

The best way to get your foundation to have a smooth and long-lasting finish is to prime your face before applying anything. Some of my favorites are MAC Prep + Prime Mist, Benefit’s Porefessional, and Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. Apply all over the face and under chin and let it dry. Primer should be applied after you have layered your skincare products.

Set it and forget it

Setting powder is the only way to go when it comes to liquid foundation. Ben Nye’s Neutral Set Setting Powder is the top choice for me, but Maybelline and Nyx have great ones too. Plus, you can’t beat their prices! After applying your liquid foundation, you can dust it all over to mattify and keep it in place or you can bake a bit. Whatever you choose these powders will add a nice natural finish.

Pack touch-up essentials

Blotting papers and translucent powder compact – these should be with you at all times, ladies! Just in case you need a little touch up or you want to get rid of some that midday shine. The best oil blotting papers I’ve tried are the rice paper and boscia papers. They don’t remove your makeup when you use them, which has happened with others I’ve used. The translucent powder can also be used to remove shine. It’s best to use it with a makeup sponge and lightly dab it on.
