Makeup 101: How to make your Makeup Last all day long!

Step #1

Exfoliate and moisturize your skin

Dead skin tends to build upon the face, especially with age. It is therefore important to exfoliate several times a week to remove it. When you apply makeup to dead skin, it flakes off during the day. Your makeup looks feels and works well on a smooth, exfoliated face. You can use a face brush to lightly brush the dead skin on your face. Rub it in circles without pressing too hard. Buy an oil-free or gel-like moisturizer for oily skin and nourishing cream for dry skin. Make sure you get a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 to protect your skin from the sun. When you are older, you can use a moisturizer with anti-wrinkle properties. Avoid using a rich, creamy moisturizer throughout the day.

Step #2

Prime, prime and prime!

Using a good primer is the key to getting makeup that lasts all day. Some primers can be a little expensive, but you don't have to use a lot of them to get a good finish. Apply the primer all over your face, especially red or oily areas, as well as any spots you want to cover. If you have large pores, choose a primer that will cloud them. If you have dry skin, choose a moisturizing primer or a mattifying primer if you have oily skin.


Step #3 – Use Eyeshadow Primer to make them shades pop!

An eye shadow primer is also important so that your eye makeup lasts long and doesn't look muddy. This foundation has long been a staple in my kit and really works magically to even out the skin tone of the eyelids and neutralize redness. It also enhances whatever you put on the top stick.

Step #4 – Use a Matte Foundation

If you don't want to use a liquid foundation, consider using mineral powder instead of foundation. This allows for easier coverage of the liquid, but it also traps fewer bacteria in the skin and allows your face to breathe. You can also use a tinted cream, powder, or moisturizer. Mineral makeup can be helpful for some, but for others, it can be too dry or easy to remove. Finding the right color can be difficult when you have yellow undertones.

Step #5 - Glam your eyes up with Mascara

Waterproof mascara will keep your eyes fresh all day. It does not move when you are wet or cry. Just make sure you don't sleep in it as it will clump together and cause your lashes to fall out. Don’t waste money on mascara primers. The mascara primer puts a strain on lashes and makes them appear shorter. Choose "waterproof" mascara rather than "waterproof" formulations. Waterproof mascaras can be harmful and are not suitable for everyday use.


Step #6 – Fix everything with Translucent Setting Powder

It is simply a light or lightly tinted powder that sets and gives your face a matte look without any additional colored powder covering it. A variety of fixing powders are available, from cheap pharmacy brands to more expensive, high-end items.

Step #7 – Spritz some Setting Spray and Voila!

Fixer spray is your best friend this time of year. But here's the catch: Not only will you end up using this spray to define your makeup, but you'll also be using it while you apply your makeup to "stick" that stuff. This is how it is done: Spray your beauty blender with a setting spray before applying the primer. Spray it on the eyeliner brush to moisten it before applying eyeliner. This will make it bulletproof. Spray on the concealer brush before applying the concealer and blend in once the face has "set" and there may be wrinkles under the eyes.
