When you spend as much time as it takes to perfect a full face of makeup, it makes sense that you’d want it to last all day and night. All too often, however, that’s not the case. Instead, foundation melts, eyeshadow rubs off, eyeliner smudges, and lipstick seeps into the little lines surrounding your lips. Meaning what starts off looking flawless as can be has every potential to end up looking like a hot mess if not applied correctly—and with the right formulas. And that’s precisely why it’s time to start talking about all things long-lasting beauty looks. Armed with the right makeup products, you’ll be able to achieve a smudge-proof beauty look in no time. Keep reading for four tips to help make your makeup last.
The first step of any long-lasting makeup look should be face primer. This makeup product works by smoothing out the surface of your skin, creating an even surface for your makeup to cling to for a flawless finish. If you have dry skin or want a radiant finish, try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer; if you have oily skin or just prefer a matte makeup look, try using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Makeup Primer.
Next, it’s time to choose your foundation. Look for a long-wear formula, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation. Apply it with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. Bounce it blend it onto your face for a seamless finish.
After you’ve applied your long-lasting face makeup base, you will want to give it a little extra staying power with the help of a finishing face powder or makeup setting spray. Where the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Powder can work wonders for those with oily skin, the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray is a great sealant for those with dry skin. What’s more, you can pop this bottle in your bag for mid-day spritzes to refresh and set your makeup all at once.
Now that your face makeup is good to go for the long day ahead, it’s time to ensure your lips are as well. As much as you may love lip gloss and traditional swivel lipsticks, the cold truth is that they’re not nearly as long-lasting as liquid lipsticks. For that reason, consider using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick. Available in six shades, you’re sure to find a muted, nude-inspired shade that you love.
Lastly, if you want to accentuate your eyes, be sure to choose waterproof formulas, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner and L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara. Together, these products will set your eye makeup up for long-lasting success that can’t be bothered by watery eyes, sweat, or tears.
Now, after putting on all the long-lasting makeup, it’s very important to make sure that you remove it all fully at the end of the day so that it won’t clog your pores and cause stress to your skin. So, be sure that your vanity is stocked with the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Waterproof Makeup, which intensely purifies, so that you can easily remove all traces of makeup without any harsh rubbing. All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face.
