5 TIPS TO MAKE FOUNDATION LAST ALL DAY
Foundation that doesn’t last all day can be frustrating, particularly if you’re busy and don’t have the chance to reapply. Maybe you’ve tried different things, but nothing’s really worked – so, what are your options?
Fortunately, if you want to know how to make your makeup last all day, you’re in the right place. There are ways to make your foundation last all day, and they don’t take a lot of work to achieve. To discover our top five tips to make foundation last all day, from exfoliating to using a high coverage foundation, read on.
PRIME YOUR SKIN
It’s best to use a primer before your foundation to lock in moisture, so why not try our Touche Éclat Blur Primer? This illuminating gel primer makes your skin more radiant and blurs imperfections. When used underneath foundation, it will boost the radiance of the foundation too.
Just apply a pump onto the back of the hand, and then with our foundation brush or your fingers apply from the centre of the face outward with gentle sweeping motions. Leave it to melt into your skin for 10 seconds before applying your foundation.
SET YOUR MAKEUP
To make your foundation last all day, it’s important to set your makeup using a setting spray or powder. These help to stop smudging.
Try our All Hours Setting Powder, which offers up to 24-hour matte wear with shine control and buildable coverage. Apply with the two-sided applicator for best results – the beige sponge side delivers the right amount of powder while the white fluffy side allows you to touch up throughout the day.
If you have dry skin, you may prefer a setting spray like our Top Secrets Makeup Setting Spray. It hydrates your skin and makes it glow, and all you need to do is shake before use and spray at a minimum of 15cm away from your face with your eyes closed after you’ve applied foundation or makeup.
EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN
Ridding your skin of dry patches and dead skin cells will also help makeup to stick to your skin’s surface, preventing flaking.
To help with exfoliation, use our Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum each night. The gentle formula is enriched with moonlight cactus flower extract and 3.4% glycolic acid. It’s a bi-phase serum consisting of an oil phase that meets an exfoliation phase, smoothing, exfoliating, and hydrating skin at the same time to help makeup last all day.
APPLY IN THIN, EVEN LAYERS
When applying foundation, it’s best to apply it in thin, even layers if you want to make it last all day. When you apply thick layers, the foundation can slide off your face throughout the day, so lighter layers are the best. It’s advisable to apply your foundation using a brush, as this will help the foundation to last longer – a brush presses the pigment into the skin.
Alternatively, use a full coverage or high coverage foundation with breathable formula – these cover the skin completely but won’t be too thick.
