One of the best ways to make your makeup last is to use the right products. Most people think that you need tons of makeup to make it stay on, but that’s simply not true. In high school, I used to have to visit the ladies' room everyday after lunch to apply more makeup because mine from that morning had lost its spark. Now, I don’t carry any makeup with me all day except a tube of lip gloss to touch up my lips after drinking something while I’m out. You really don’t need more makeup; you just need to buy the right kinds and put them on in the right order. Find out my favorite ways to make your makeup last and experience the freedom of no more second makeup sessions during your day!
1. Use Concealer First
Many people use concealer after they apply their foundation, but one of the best ways to make your makeup last is to apply it first. Use it to contour your face, by placing concealer under your eyes, on top of your eyelids, under your nose and towards the tops of your lips. This will illuminate your face and help you need less foundation overall, which will help you look less cakey. This also takes shadows off your face so you need less of other products and you won’t be able to see the concealer once you’ve applied your foundation over it, but you will notice a lighted effect to your face. This trick also helps eyeshadows stick to your eyelids better, which is one area many people have trouble with in making their makeup last.
