By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

There is an ongoing problem that women seem to always be complaining about. They complain that they can not get their makeup to last all day. For most women, they are lucky if the makeup that they apply in the morning lasts more then 3 hours into their day. This is one of the many reasons that people keep putting out more and more money to find makeup that will solve the problem of being able to make makeup last all day. The good news is that for the most part, you can achieve this goal with the makeup that you already have. All you need to do is to know the proper steps to take to make your makeup last all day.
-
A Note on Quality
-
Yes, it was said that you can make makeup last all day with the products that you already have. This is very much a realistic idea for almost everyone who will read this article. There is some makeup that does not have the quality to keep its color and coverage through out the day no matter what you do to it. You want to make sure that you are using the best quality makeup that you can afford to. This will ensure that you are applying the most pigment to your skin to make makeup last all day. There are great drug store brands and department store brands of makeup that will live up to the quality need for makeup.

Foundation
-
Foundation is the base of your entire look. It is the pallet that you apply the rest of the color to make the final picture that you want to show to the world. It is for this reason that when you want to make makeup last all day, you need to start with keeping the foundation in one place on your face as long as you need it to be. There is nothing worse then foundation coming off your face about mid day because it will take the rest of your makeup with it.
-
Step One
-
Clean your face thoroughly with cleanser that is formulated for your skin type to make makeup last all day. You need to have your skin clean and ready to have makeup applied to it to make sure that you have the best look and the ability to keep it in place. This step will also help you to have clear skin and therefor it will help you to use less product each day.
-
Step Two
-
Apply a quality moisturizer to your skin that contains an SPF of at least 15. When your skin is not well hydrated it will absorb the foundation that you put on it. The application of the moisturizer is a great prep step to make sure that your skin is ready to make makeup last all day. Be careful that you do not over moisturize your skin. A person with oily skin has different moisturizer needs then someone with dry skin. Make sure that you find a great moisturizer for your skin type.
-
Step Three
-
Grab your hair dryer and get ready to set your moisturizer and get your face truly ready to make makeup last all day. Set your hair dryer to its cool setting and give your face a quick blast of air from it. This actually sets your skin and seals in the moisture that you have applied to it. This may seem to be a strange thing to do but it goes so such a long way to help you when you are applying foundation to your face.
-
Step Four
-
Use a foundation with a matte finish to get the most wear out of foundation. The foundations that are meant to be thin and give you a dewy or glowing look are not the best product to use when you are trying to get makeup to last all day. Matte finishes stay put when you put them on. The reason for this is that their formulas hold onto the skin better then their thinner counter parts.
-
Step Five
-
The most flawless application of foundation is achieved with a foundation brush. It gives you the most even coating of makeup on your skin. This helps to make sure that you can make your makeup last all day. Apply dots of foundation of the forehead, each cheek, the nose, and the chin. Use your foundation brush to blend the makeup outwards. This is the simplest and most efficient way to make makeup last all day.
-
Step Six
-
Apply a cream concealer over any imperfections or other spots on your face that you feel need more coverage then just your foundation. Use your ring finger to apply concealer. You want to dab it over the spot that you need the coverage until it blends into the rest of your makeup. This is how you make makeup last all day and get the coverage that you really want.
-
Step Seven
-
You need to set your foundation in place to achieve the true results of getting being able to make makeup last all day. The best way to do this is with a loose translucent powder. Tap some loose powder onto a tissue. Apply the powder with a large powder brush. You will want a very light coverage of powder all over your face to really set in all of the hard work that you have done.

Tips
-
If you do not already have favorite products such as foundation, then you need to go out and find the one that you like best. The thing about foundation is that it only looks good when it is properly matched to your skin. It is no good to make makeup last all day if it does not look good. If you are worried that the foundation that you are looking into getting does not match your skin, you can always find free makeup samples to try out different foundations before you buy. This way you can see how the foundation will look on your skin in many different types of lights besides those in the store.
