5 PRO TIPS FOR LONG-LASTING MAKEUP: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE

Setting your makeup might be considered the last step in your glamorous makeover, but you might be doing it wrong & you have no idea you are. A few tips to ensure that your makeup won't melt, and that your full face glam will last you for hours!


TIP 1: SET WITH POWDER PUFFS

These puffs should become your best friend when you want makeup to stay for longer. Use

them with your setting powder & dab on areas that get super oily or sweaty throughout the day. Brushes give a lighter touch, but powder puffs help you lock that makeup in for hours and hours.




TIP 2: MAKE FIXING SPRAY YOUR GO-TO Make sure you're using a fixing spray, and not a setting spray. Fixing sprays help make your makeup last for the whole day, usually up to 12 hours. I highly recommend the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-lasting makeup setting spray below as your last step because it ensures the makeup doesn't move no matter what.




TIP 3: INVEST IN THE RIGHT PRIMERS

Invest in the right primers, & apply a layer of your primer before applying your foundation, to ensure that your base lasts while you get a flawless finish. Without primers, you might find your foundation sliding throughout the day & wearing off depending on your skin type. I love using the Pro Filter' Retouch primer by Fenty Beauty as it helps give skin a retouch effect whilst stopping the shine, and diffusing the pores. It's an absolute treat to the skin, as it has a lightweight cushion effect on the skin, yet helps makeup last longer than the usual.




TIP 4: CHOOSE NO-SMUDGE FORMULAS

Waterproof liquid liner formulas are the ultimate solution if you're looking for your eyeliner to last all day & stand out. You can't rely on pencils as much as liquid liners, as they won't move & give you a precise application through the day. Makeup Forever's Aqua Resist Color Ink liners has a formula thats smudge-proof and waterproof. Its so pigmented & comes in so many colors that makes it fun to use in eye makeup.





TIP 5: LAYER CREAM & POWDER FORMULAS

This trick of layering cream & powder formulas, ensures you get the maximum pigment of a product or color & also gives you a longer-lasting effect. It works the best with cream blushes, layered with powder blushes. It looks so beautiful when on, and the chances of sliding are super low. If you only use cream blushes, your makeup definitely won't last all day.
