We’ve all experienced the results of a hard day’s work: flaked mascara, creased eye shadow, worn off foundation and the dreaded lipstick ring. When you’re a woman-on-the-go, makeup has a tendency to melt or disappear by the end of the day.
Add In Some Minerals
Minerals are very water resistant, have minimal transference, are long-lasting and can provide broad spectrum sun protection. They’re the ideal choice when you want to look fabulous all day, and they give the overall appearance of soft, airbrushed skin.First and foremost, start using mineral makeup! If you’re already using mineral makeup, you’re one step ahead.
Moisturizer for long-lasting makeupNow that you’re using mineral makeup, prep your skin with a moisturizer. Minerals adhere best to skin that is hydrated, ensuring your makeup lasts longer.
To re-apply your lipstick after you eat or drink, fear not! The long-lasting effect of powder mineral foundation works on lips too. Give your lipstick staying-power by applying a thin layer of pressed powder on them before you swipe on your favorite shade. This will keep your lipstick in place, even through your morning coffee.
Prime Your Eyes
Eye primer for long-lasting eye makeupIf you find your eye shadow creases by the time you leave work, try using a thin layer of eye primer before you apply your shadow. . Remember, most eye primers are cream formulas, so if you apply too much, they will inevitably crease too.
Set Your Makeup
The easiest, and most refreshing thing you can do to obtain long-lasting makeup is finishing your look with a spritz. Facial mists, like our Hydration Sprays, help set the minerals and create greater adherence to the skin.
