Tips to Help Your Makeup Last All Night
Sick and tired of having to pop to the bathroom to touch up your makeup on a night out? Want your makeup to look as good at midnight as it did at noon? Check out these tried and tested tips to help your makeup last all night:
Apply a Moisturizer
Before you apply your makeup for the day, you should first apply your favorite moisturizer. Not only will it plump up and smooth out your skin, but it will also help your makeup to last longer and look better.
If you’re looking to make your makeup last as long as possible, it makes sense to use waterproof products like the products found in the e.l.f Waterproof Kit. Then, if it rains, you go swimming, or you do something that makes you sweat, your makeup will stay in place, and you won’t be left with a messy face.
Select Smudge Proof
As well as choosing makeup that is waterproof, you should choose pieces that are also smudge proof. It is so easy to ruin your makeup by absentmindedly rubbing your eyes, taking a drink or scratching your face, that wearing smudge proof products just makes sense.
Plump for Primers
Primers are something that every woman should have in her makeup kit. Using just a little primer before you apply your makeup will make application simpler, and help your makeup to last all day and all night without creasing problems.
Fall in Love with Lips Stains
Instead of using lipstick, which is notorious for rubbing off when you eat, drink or kiss, use lip stains to add a touch of color to your lips. Lip stains will stay put no matter how much work your lips do, and if you apply a topcoat of gloss, they will look extremely luscious and kissable too.
Use Foundation and Powder
Once you’ve applied your favorite cream foundation, lock it in with a powdering of translucent powder, which will soak up oil giving you a shine free complexion, and ensure that your face looks flawless all night long.
Blot it Back
If you suffer from very oily skin, there isn’t much you can do to stop the oil coming through after a few hours, but that doesn’t mean that your makeup has to be ruined. Invest in some good quality blotting papers and carefully pat affected areas to get rid of excess moisture and keep your face in place.
Use a Setting Spray
Using an effective setting spray like Ben Nye Final Seal, will seal in your look and protect it from the usual causes of ruined makeup like smudging, rubbing and transference. Just be careful to ensure that you cover your whole face without overdoing it if you want to look as good as possible.
Choose the Best Products
Apart from the above tips, the best thing you can do, if you want to ensure that your makeup last all night is to invest in quality products that have been specifically designed for longevity. Using these products in conjunction with the above tips will almost certainly give you the best results.
