When you spend time perfecting a full face of makeup, it makes sense that you’d want it to last all day and night. All too often, however, makeup that lasts all day is not what you get. Instead, foundation melts, eye shadow rubs off, eyeliner smudges, and lipstick seeps into the little lines surrounding your lips. Meaning what starts off looking flawless has every potential to end up looking like a hot mess. And that’s precisely why it’s time to start talking about how to make makeup last all day. Armed with the right makeup products, you’ll be able to achieve a smudge-proof beauty look in no time. Keep reading for six tips to help your makeup last.
The first step in any long-lasting makeup look should be using face primer. This makeup product works to smooth out the surface of your skin and creates an even canvas 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. Ff 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 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, which offers medium-to-full buildable coverage that lasts all day and provides your skin with a healthy-looking complexion. Apply it with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. Use dabbing and rolling motions to blend the foundation onto your face for a seamless finish.
Now that your long-lasting foundation is in place, you’ll 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 Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray is an excellent 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.
With your face makeup good to go for the long day ahead, it’s time to focus on your pout. As much as you may love lip gloss and traditional swivel lipsticks, the cold, hard truth is that they’re usually not nearly as long-lasting as liquid lipsticks. For that reason, consider using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Les Macarons Scented Liquid Lipstick. Available in seven vivid shades, you’re sure to find a stunning matte hue that you love.
If you want to accentuate your eyes, be sure to choose waterproof formulas, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner and L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara, Lasting Volume. Together, these products will set your eye makeup up for long-lasting success that can’t be bothered by watery eyes, sweat, or tears.
Like it or not, oil tends to rear its ugly head throughout the day. However, there is a way to make sure that your makeup lasts all day sans the shiny finish. Instead of reaching for blotting papers, keep a dry makeup sponge handy. Blotting papers are great for soaking up oils, but they tend to take off more makeup than necessary. A makeup sponge works wonders to soak up unwanted shine without ruining your makeup.
After crafting a flawless makeup look, it’s essential to remove it thoroughly at the end of the day so that it won’t clog your pores and lead to blemishes. Stock your vanity with a powerful makeup remover, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof-All Skin Types, 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.
And, there you have it, the ultimate guide to achieving long-lasting makeup! For your next makeup lesson, learn How to Find Your Foundation Color Match.
