Making your makeup last through a single event is easy, BUT the tricky part is when you have to make it last throughout the day. Good thing you have us to guide you! Read on to learn these simple tips that will make your makeup bullet proof.
Before you apply fresh makeup, be sure to wash your face properly to start with a clean canvas. Applying makeup over products that you may have used earlier in the day can cause the freshly applied cosmetics to slip off quickly.
Also, be sure to use a good quality face wash that suits your skin and doesn’t make it dry and lifeless. We recommend Fair and Lovely Insta Glow Facewash for this step to give you a fresh cleansed glow before you begin.
You need to remember to exfoliate a few times every week. It is best to prepare a good homemade scrub at home using sugar, olive oil, and honey to give your skin freshness and scrub away dry and dead skin cells. But if you want as easy way out then Pond’s nourishing facial scrub is your best resort.
Applying primer before applying foundation or eye makeup makes makeup last longer. Apply primer all over your face and neck before applying eye makeup, foundation or concealer. Be sure to put it over your under eyes, blemishes and the areas you wish to cover and conceal the most, so that the makeup sticks on.
Use Mineral Powder:
Instead of liquid foundation, use mineral powder. This helps with absorbing excess oil and smoothing out your skin. And the best part is, you can easily carry it around all day with a makeup sponge and fix your makeup whenever you feel its wearing off.
Moisturise and Outline Lips:
Before you do this, apply Nivea Moisture lip care stick to moisturize your lips. Long-lasting lip colours tend to dry out your lips, but if you take precautions then nothing can go wrong. Also, use a lip liner to make sure it maintains the same shape throughout the day.
Opt For Waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara:
Waterproof eye makeup is best at staying fresh and staying in place throughout the day without any smudges. But make sure you remove the mascara before you sleep to avoid your lashes from falling off.
Avoid Touching Your Face:
We tend to touch our face constantly which causes the makeup to slowly and gradually get wiped off. So ladies, keep your hands off your face!
