It’s one of the most common makeup tips and tricks requests that we receive: how to make makeup last all day and night. There’s nothing worse than checking your reflection in the mirror after a long day of meetings and wondering exactly when and how your makeup disappeared.
Luckily, when using the right product, along with correct application and a few tricks, you rest easy knowing that your makeup will last through a long, rough day at work, dinner and drinks with friends and whatever else life throws at you!
To begin, the key is to use a primer on both your face and eye lids. Think of primer as a Spanx for your face –it preps your skin so that everything you place on top of it just looks better. Using it can help smooth and conceal, filling in lines and wrinkles, creating the perfect base so that your foundation looks better and lasts longer.
Apply primer on your face by using a makeup brush for a perfect airbrushed finish. Using a brush for application has the added bonus of extra coverage – and who doesn’t love that?? Next, use eye primer on your lids so that your eye shadow is locked in place. In addition, when using a primer on your lids, the eye shadow you choose will be truer to color.
Selecting the right products is another key on making makeup last all day. For foundation, oil-free formulas tend to be the best choice, because they don’t contain ingredients that make makeup slide off. If you use a moisturizer (hint: you should be, especially in the winter months!), make sure to apply it and let it dry before using primer and other face makeup.
If you struggle with eyeliner and other eye makeup not making it through your day, run a spot concealer under your eyes to make sure it doesn’t bleed down your face. While gel and liquid eye liners tend to last longer, plenty of us prefer to use a pencil. There are plenty of ways to make sure it lasts. Expert tip: A matching eye shadow color can help set your pencil eye liner. Use a slant-tip brush or pointy tip of a foam applicator and trace over your eye liner.
Want mascara that lasts all day and night without clumping or flaking? It’s all about the product selection. It’s not surprising to learn that if you want mascara that won’t budge no matter what you do, use a waterproof formula. To avoid clumps and flaking, apply it in quick layers before it dries.
