How to keep makeup on all day starts with your foundation. You want to use a long lasting foundation and also start with a primer. Always start with a clean face, apply primer, and put on your foundation. These steps will help your makeup last longer.


Blush and Powder

Blush and powder need to be applied in layers. Start light and add a little at a time. Layers will help the keep the makeup on all day and allow you to get the colors just right. Adding too much at one time may leave you looking over done.


When applying blush and powder, it is important to use the right tools. A fluffy brush is best for applying blush, as it will help to blend the product and create a more natural look. For powder, opt for a brush with a denser head, as this will help to set the product and ensure it lasts all day.

It is also important to use the right type of blush and powder for your skin type. Those with oily skin should opt for a matte blush and powder, while those with dry skin should use a blush with a bit of shimmer and a hydrating powder.

For those with oily skin, it is important to use a primer before applying blush and powder. Primers help to absorb excess oil and create a smooth canvas for makeup application.

When applying blush and powder, it is important to start with a light layer and build up gradually. This will create a more natural look and prevent you from looking over done.

Finally, setting your makeup with a setting spray is key for making sure your makeup lasts all day. Setting sprays help to lock in the makeup and prevent it from transferring or fading.


Eye Shadow

The key to keeping eye shadow on all day is to start with a primer or foundation on the eyelids. I prefer using a primer. After I have my primer in place I lightly layer on my eye shadow one color at a time. I have noticed a huge difference keeping makeup on all day by using eye shadow primer.


Curled Lashes

I am a fan of long curled lashes. If you have ever wondered how to keep makeup on all day and find your lashes looking limp, try this trick. Heat your eyelash curler with your hair dryer. Curl your lashes at the base and again on the tips. Doing this will keep your lashes curled longer.



Once you have beautifully curled lashes you still need mascara. There are still a few great ways to get your mascara to last longer. First brush the tips of your lashes with a little bit of light eye shadow or powder before adding on your coats of mascara. The powder helps the mascara stay on longer.

Lipstick is another thing that leads women to wonder how to keep makeup on all day. I hate that after I leave the house my lipstick has already started to fade... before I even reach the office! Lately I have started lining and filling in my lips with lip liner and then using a really good color stay lipstick. The results have been fabulous and I’m no longer spending most of my day re-applying lipstick.


Nail Polish

Nothing drives me crazier than chipped nail polish. I find it tacky and annoying. Unfortunately, it’s hard to avoid. But you can make it last a little longer. Always start off with a base coat. Base coat helps the polish stay on your nails much longer. Finish up with a good top coat.

I have to say that if your looking for an eyeshadow primer Urban Decay's 'Primer Potion' is just the best. I've been using it for years and my makeup stays on all day, never creases and the colours stay just as vibrant :)
