We all love to wear makeup, but yet we don’t want it melting off our faces during the hot days of summer. Or even better! You would like for your makeup to last during a special event or occasion, i.e. your wedding day! Here are some tips to making your makeup LAST, vs caking or sweating off your face.
How to make your lipstick stay on all day: You will need your lipstick, a tissue, & setting powder. First put on your lip stick. Then place the tissue directly over your lips. Take a makeup brush & brush some setting powder on your lips with the tissue is still over your lips. Otherwise, use a lip stain. That definitely won’t move!
Stick to waterproof eye liner / mascara or get a waterproofing gel: You don’t want your eyeliner / mascara running if you cry / sweat. Even better you can add the Anastasia’s Beauty Genius Waterproofing gel, if you REALLY want it to stay on (especially for special occasions). The stuff is truly unique and genius!
Can you believe that this only costs $3? You can add it to almost any makeup product you have, & it makes it waterproof!
Use a cream blush and eye shadows instead of a powder one: Put on the cream blush underneath your foundation. It creates a more ‘lit from within glow’ & lasts all day. Also cream eyeshadows absorb oils & tend not to move.
Yes, this is meant for brows, but with this wax pencil you literally could put over your eyeliner, or other powders to make it waterproof & last!
Always use a setting powder with liquid foundation: This prevents it from cracking when you sweat. The great thing about it is that it’s usually white but goes on translucent. Just use a wide brush & brush it all your face once you’re done with your makeup.
To top it all off: Setting spray: And what is setting spray? A setting spray will help you keep all the products on your face in place, especially for long wear. If you plan on wearing it for a long time i.e. to a wedding or any other special occasion, putting on some setting spray WILL help your makeup stay MUCH longer vs. looking like it’s melting off your face.
Setting spray for oily / combination skin: I know what you’re going to ask. What is the difference between this one, and the Urban Decay Spray above? This one helps with oil control, & you’re supposed to spray it before AND after you put on your makeup. Not only does it help your makeup stay on, but helps your face from getting oily & caking. Especially on a hot day? I would definitely need this!
Don’t only use this for your summer makeup. (What you want to avoid is looking like a mess.) Any special occasion, use these tips to keep your face looking the best!
