Tips for Long Lasting Makeup

Cover (1)

Hii my beauties 💋 💋 !!

Today is all about making you makeup stay longer. There are some days that we NEED for the makeup to hold on for 8 or even more hours, and on today’s post I will share some tips on how to do that.

First, let’s get the basics out of the way, we all know that setting sprays, face primers, mattefying and long wearing foundations and setting our face with powder will help the makeup last longer, but there are few other tricks that, added to the makeup routine, can help the makeup last longer, such as:


WASHING THE FACE, before applying the makeup, and APPLYING AN OIL-CONTROL OR MATTIFYING FACE LOTION. By washing your face you will remove all that excess oil (and dirt) on the skin, and help the foundation sit better. And an oil-control lotion will not just be another barrier for the makeup but, as the name suggests, will help control the amount of oil on your face.

CHOSING AN OIL FREE PRIMERS (for the face and eyes) will also help with the longevity of the makeup.


Another thing that I have noticed is that, LAYERING POWDERS OVER CREAMS makes the makeup last longer. Not just setting powder over foundation and concealer, but also powder blushes, bronzers, contours and highly over cream blushes, bronzers, contours and highlighters. It doesn’t just look good, it also makes the makeup last longer.

And BLOTTING1 BEFORE POWDERING is very important, especially for oily skin. When we see that oil peak throughout the foundation, we know that it is time to touch up, and the first tendency is to apply powder to it, but that will actually break the foundation, instead you should first blot with blotting sheets (or even toilet paper, if you don’t want to buy blotting sheets) and only after that apply the powder.


1Blotting: drying the skin with some absorbent material, in this case mean removing the excess oil from the skin with blotting sheets or toilet paper/tissue

And these are my main tricks to make the foundation last longer. Do you do any of these tricks?
