Make Your Makeup Last

By Aniela / December 28, 2009

Today we're going to talk about how to make your makeup last! This holiday season, you've undoubtedly been to many parties, and some, might have lasted till the early hours, which means that your makeup might not have survived the whole night. So with New Year's Eve right around the corner, how can you make sure your makeup stays put all night? Here are some steps you can follow!

Make Your Makeup Last


1. Moisturize

Moisturizing is one of the most important steps you can do even before you think about putting on your makeup. When moisturizing, your skin will help absorb the makeup and also keep it in place. If you apply concealer without moisturizing, your skin will just flake, and you'll end up with blochy, dry spots.

2. Primer

Second most important step in makeup durability is the primer. Choose a silicone-based primer which is amazing at helping to keep your makeup in place all night long. The silicone primers will give your skin a silky smooth finish and will also make sure your foundation stays put.

3. Prep the Eyes

Before putting on eyeshadow, make sure you cleanse your lids and then proceed with a thin layer of foundation. This will ensure that you don't get those nasty creases.

4. Powder

After you've applied your foundation, finish off with a matte powder to put everything in place and so that your foundation doesn't come off.
