How Makeup your Makeup Long Lasting All Day

When the weather is humid and oil on your face goes crazy, isn't it frustrating that you have to think of retouching your makeup? When you love to eat and drink, isn't it frustrating to always mind that your lipstick is fading, thus making your lips very unflattering and pale? I'm usually too lazy to retouch my makeup, so I keep on finding ways and products that will help make my makeup last longer. Now that they've been put to the test: I'll share my Top 10 easy tips and tricks on how to make your makeup last all day.

1. Face - Never forget to prep the face
There are still a lot of us who skip skincare before putting makeup. Actually, moisturizing your face is an important trick to prolong your face makeup. This applies especially to oily skin. If you have oily skin and you don't apply moisturizer, your skin will think that it's dry and it'll produce more oil. When this happens, even your toughest foundation will surely melt away.





2. Face - Prime before anything else
So now you're done with the skincare, what now? Second tip is to put on [face] base primer. This is a must before putting on makeup. because:
        - This will protect your skin from makeup residue that could get in and clog your pores. 
        - Your makeup will stick to the primer making it hard to fade.
        - This will shield your makeup from your face's natural oils.

3. Eyebrow - Don't be shy with the brow mascara
Believe it or not, I use two layers of brow mascara over my eyebrow pencil. Yes, two. One is a tinted gel and 2nd is a clear gel. Make sure you apply them dry and then go over a second layer. I swear, this technique is gym-proof. I sweat in the gym for 2 hours and my brows are still there!

4. Eyeshadow - Powder over the eyeshadow primer
If you have oily, hooded lids, it's frustrating to wear eyeshadow for a whole day. The eyeshadow tends to melt, and the colors blend with each other in the most unflattering way. To make sure you save yourself with all the frustration of unflattering eyeshadow: before wearing them - wear a good eyeshadow primer (concealer can be a good eyeshadow primer too) and top it off with either powder or powder foundation. This will not only minimize the oil on your lids, this will also make it easier for you to apply and blend your eyeshadow beautifully.


5. Eyeliner - Use good quality, matte eyeliner
Be it gel, or liquid; use a good quality, matte eyeliner. I don't prefer pencil liners because they smudge real bad. If you don't want panda eyes, just skip the pencil and get the gel or liquid eyeliner. I will share you my recommended eyeliner for oily lids below.

6. Mascara - Double the mascara
Always do a double layer of waterproof mascara if you want to natural-looking, all-day curled lashes. Again, if you don't want the panda eyes, skip the non-waterproof mascara. It will surely melt from the humid-weather here in the Philippines.

7. Cheeks - A layer of blush isn't enough
This trick will make your blush sweat-proof. After applying your powder, use a liquid/gel blush. This will melt and blend in with your face powder making it long-lasting. Double it with your favorite powder blush to seal it in. It's like baking, but with blush.

8. Lips - Don't forget the lip balm and lip tint
Before applying your lipstick, don't forget to prime your lips with lip balm. Wipe it off, then wear liquid lip tint as a base layer. This is so that when your liptint fades, there's another layer of color beneath it. Your lips wouldn't look pale after all the eating and drinking.

9. Lips - The blotting secret
I'm sure you've heard about this technique. Blotting your lipstick with a tissue and then applying with another layer. I must say, you can skip the powder part since it's not that essential. There are times that powder leaves small clumpy residues when it mixes with the lipstick. Follow these steps to maximize the blotting technique:

        1. Apply lip balm then blot with a tissue.
        2. Apply the first layer of lip tint then blot with a tissue.
        3. Apply lip tint, let it dry, then blot again with a tissue.
        4. Apply lipstick, smudge with a finger, then blot it with a tissue.
        5. Apply lipstick and finish it with blotting with a tissue.

Your lips should be eat-and-drink-proof after all these steps. It looks like it's time-consuming, but it's not. It's really worth following.

10. Face - Seal it all in
The last step is to seal it with a makeup setting spray. A makeup setting spray will slightly melt the makeup, making it stick to your skin. A second spritz will add an extra layer to your beautifully blended makeup.
