There isn’t any point to putting on a full face of makeup in the morning, only to have it rub off by noon. You want your handwork to enhance your beauty all day long, right? Of course you do! There are ways to ensure this by using the right techniques to apply your makeup. High quality cosmetics also go a long way to better formulas that will wear longer. At Brick and Mirror Beauty our line of best selling makeup, Beauty Addicts is always going to be a high performance brand, as far as longevity goes. Wearing for hours until you decide to take it off is how makeup should behave. Here are some other tips to make your makeup last all day long without fail.
1. Skin Care Is The Key
It’s important to prep the skin to receive the makeup. Your makeup is only going to look as good as your skin does. So you want to take care of it in the right way. Plus, when you don’t use a moisturizer before your makeup, you are applying it to dry skin which doesn’t give it the right base to adhere to. It’s naturally going to rub off and not last as long.
A great daily moisturizer to try for normal to dry skin is Beyond Hydration by Bioelements. This non-greasy, oil free moisturizing gel is the absolute perfect base for makeup. Your foundation is going to glide over this product with ease, looking better with every application.
For someone with seriously oily skin you might mistakenly want to skip moisturizer. That’s a huge no-no. Not only do you want to balance your skin’s oil production, but you want to help control it so your foundation doesn’t slide right off after a couple of hours. Dermalogica makes an Oil Control Lotion that is amazing at toning down your shiny skin. It utilizes all natural sage and citrus to help curb oil production. So banish that shiny t-zone with this useful product.
2. Set Your Foundation Always
Foundation isn’t meant to act on its own as a long wearing product. The best way to keep it on for the long run is to set it with a powder. Use a high quality powder brush like, Pro Face Brush by Beauty Addicts can also help application. Granted good brushes can be an investment, but once you have them they are yours for life, if you take care of them well. Sweep on a layer of Flawless Cover Pressed Powder by Beauty Addicts all over your face after you apply your foundation and concealer. This powder will keep your foundation in place throughout a long day.
3. Hands Off Your Face
This might seem like a common sense approach to your face, but you’d be surprised at how many people accidentally touch their face all day long. You might not even be aware that you are doing it, but it’s not doing your makeup any favors. Plus, you are only adding bacteria that you pick up on your hands all day long to your face, which can lead to acne problems. So hands off for long wearing makeup. Once you start to break the habit of touching your face, your makeup will wear so much better.
4. One Final Tip
