Here is the second half of the guide on how to make your makeup last all day long so that you can avoid retouching altogether. This article lists various guidelines on which products you should go for so that you can arrive at the best results.
Go For Liquid Or Cream Products With Their Matching Powder Version
For best results, use a combination of cream or liquid products with their matching powder version. For instance, if you are applying a cream blush, take its powder version and layer it on top. The cream layer will be there in case the powder runs out. You lessen the chances of eliminating the powder since it has a stable base to cling on to.
One tip for your application is instead of gently buffing the powder, try stippling it by pressing it into your face. The tapping motions will make them stay on longer. You should also have the powder version of your foundation so that you can simply retouch the areas that look shiny or barren
Does your eyeshadow keep on falling out or getting smudged? Try spraying your brush with priming spray first before you dip it into your shadows. This will make your eyeshadow cling better to your eyelids. This also makes metallic shades shinier than usual.
Go For Waterproof
If you really want something long-lasting, go for waterproof products. These items can withstand the numerous fluids secreted by your face. These are the secrets to avoid smudging or patchy eye makeup. Go for waterproof mascara and eyeliner. You won’t get that “raccoon effect” even if you haven’t retouched for hours.
Apply Your Lipstick Correctly
Another common problem with makeup is how easy it is to lose your lipstick on your lips. If you are not a fan of that kiss-proof yet dehydrating lip products, you can simply follow this hack. Exfoliate your lips before everything else. Apply your lipstick, blot it, add a sheen layer of translucent powder, and then add another last layer of lipstick on top of that. This multilayer process improves the opacity of your lipstick so that you won’t easily lose it and go barren.
Try Translucent Powders
Translucent powders are amazing in terms of locking your makeup in. you add this after you are done applying all of your cosmetic products.
