Make-Up That Lasts All Day

By on September 1, 2014

If you ask me, I don’t suppose that anyone always has time to keep their make-up from running. Heck, I run a salon and I still couldn’t be bothered taking a second glance at myself in the mirror. And you know why that is? Because that’s life. We’re all busy people, leading busy lives with little to no time to do much else, unfortunately. That’s fine, of course. Us busy folks have invented a way to keep our make-up looking fresh and dewy all day long (yes, all day long) without as much as a second glance in the mirror.

Here, my lovely friends are the handiest tips you can implement to keep your makeup looking oh-so-fresh!

1. Keep foundation lasting longer by…

natural sunscreen with zinc oxide

… Exfoliating your skin at least once a week and applying moisturizer every night before you go to bed. Exfoliated skin is easiest to work with. It creates a smooth surface that can hold the foundation better. Prep your skin with primer first and only then wear foundation suited to your skin type. As a rule of thumb, always start with less; less foundation over the areas that need covering with a brush in light strokes. Finish with a translucent powder to seal in the product.

2. Keep your eyelashes curled longer by…

… Heating your eyelash curler with a blow dryer before curling your lashes and then following it up with a sweep of mascara of your choice.

3. Keep lipstick lasting longer by…

… Following this simple process, I’ve used over the years. For a fuller lip begin by exfoliating your lips with a toothbrush. Follow this with a coat of lip balm and blot to soak the excess moisture. Apply concealer with a brush to create a neutral base for application and line your lips with a lip liner and blend slightly. Then apply a coat of lipstick, blot and another coat of lipstick to finish!


4. Keep your hair looking bouncy as ever…

… By applying a Volumizer not once, but twice to your hair- once when your hair is still damp and then a second time when you’re done styling your hair. This will keep your hair looking bouncy and you won’t have to worry about it going flat at some point of the day.

5. Keep the fragrance of your perfume last longer…

… By applying a scented moisturizer right before you wear your perfume. The oil from the lotion will help the fragrance of your perfume last much longer than usual. Want to know a little secret? I wear two of my favorite perfumes together. They create a unique fragrance that people have come to associate with me and well, you won’t find it in a store anyway!

6. Always buy products the right way

This one’s something you should keep in mind every time you decide to go out and buy something new. If you know you’re not going to get time to touch up your makeup, then just opt for products that have ‘long-lasting’ and ‘waterproof’ on their covers. You’ll need to buy makeup that will stay so it’s best you make a smart decision.

Now, are you ready to head out for the day without worrying about make-up or what?
