Primer Donna: Before applying your make up always use a primer. A thin layer of primer helps to smooth out your skin texture. This helps not only to apply the make up more easily but makes it look more natural and also set it to last longer.
Con it, seal it: Concealer is a great product and not all of us use it for the hassle involved. However, you will find that if you use concealer your skin will not only appear flawless, your foundation will last much longer especially in areas that tend to sweat, such as the forehead and around the mouth. Moreover your eyeshadow and eye liner will last much longer.
Lip are sealed: Making your lipstick last longer is easier than you might think. The first simple rule for this is line your lips with a lipliner slightly darker than your lipstick. Then fill in the lipstick, especially those that transfer. Then blot your lipstick with a tissue. Add a light brushing of loose powder. This will create a colored based for your lipstick. Then fill in the lipstick again, if possible, with a brush. There.. no need to keep fishing out your lipstick every hour to refresh it... sip all the wine you want to.
Lash it: Mascara is one problem product for many of us. Mascare tends to dry in the tube over a shorter period of time and especially waterproof mascara can dry up faster because of the formulation which is water proof. Adding water to the product can cause it to spoil.
Easy hack, if your mascara is too thick, simply add a few drops of any herbal eyedrops to thin it. This will also help you to keep your peepers feeling brighter. And no need to wipe excess mascara that cakes on your lovely lashes.
Make me blush: Avoid using cream blushes in summer and powder blushes in winter. In heat cream blushes tend to get runny, while in winter powder brushes can easily wear out since they won't blend in with your foundation. To make it last, choose a creamy formula for a cold day and a powder formula for a hot day. Simple !
