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.

Did you know that cleaning your makeup brushes regularly is a must-do activity for all, no matter how often you use them? Keeping the brushes that touch your face clean can help keep bacteria and breakouts at bay. Here’s how we recommend doing it:
Step 1: Rinse brushes under lukewarm, running water
Step 2: Gently swirl in a bowl filled with water and a squirt of shampoo or cleanser
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until running water runs clear
Step 4: Use a cloth to remove excess water and reshape the bristles
Step 5: Lay flat on a cloth to dry

The beautiful fall colors and cooler temperatures have us trading our flip flops for boots and tank tops for sweaters. But clothing shouldn’t be the only trade-ins you make this winter, and no, we’re not talking about your car. It’s critical to change your skincare and makeup routine for the winter, especially if you live in colder temperature areas.
Tailoring your skincare for the seasons is important for maintaining flawless skin year round and updating your face makeup shade can help prevent using too-dark foundation. Keep reading for a few of our expert tips on how to make the wintertime makeup and skincare transition.

Tips & How-Tos
PREP: First, prep the skin with a light moisturizer such as Soak It Up.
FACE: Using the Liquid Chisel Brush, apply 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation to your face, blending until even. Use a liquid spot concealer, like Disappearing Ink, to cover any imperfections (especially beneath the eyes).
CHEEKS: Lightly apply Château Cheeks Cream Blush in Flirt to your cheeks, beginning on the apple and working upward and outward. Use your fingertips or the Liquid Chisel Brush for a more airbrushed effect.
EYES: Everything you need is in Pür’s NEW Soul Mattes palette! Start with a sheer wash of BFF on the eyelid and blend from the lash line to the crease. Then apply Confidante as a highlighter to the inner eye. Smudge Alter Ego along your top and bottom lash lines, and finish with two coats of Big Look Mascara to top lashes.
LIPS: Complete the look with a knockout nude lip gloss. (We recommend Château Kisses Lip Gloss in Exposed.)
