7 tips for making your makeup last longer
1 Prepare your skin
Your skin care routine should start with proper prepping, whether you use natural or commercial products.
Before you apply any makeup, start with completely cleansed skin, and moisturise afterwards.
When applying your makeup, give your skin a good five minutes to absorb any skincare products.
Use a primer, which will help your foundation go on smoothly, and even out your skin tone. If you’re going for a particular look, then you may need to experiment with the colour of your eyeshadow or lipstick. If you’re going for a natural look, choose pastel colours, and if you want to make your lips stand out, go for bright, red-orange shades. When choosing a foundation, you can try it on first in your bathroom, or at home.

2 A base is needed
You don’t want to over-layer your makeup, but if you want your makeup to last longer, consider adding an extra step in your makeup routine.
For any skin type, whether oily, dry or combination, you can take advantage of a primer to help control the appearance of your skin. You may want to use it as a base for a BB or CC Cream.
In terms of foundation, a tinted moisturizer is a great option. It will give you a flawless finish without making your skin look too dry. For a more intense coverage, try a full-coverage foundation. Use it to cover up spots, blemishes and any other imperfections. You can also use a concealer under your foundation for added coverage and to hide dark circles. To keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day, use a finishing powder. Apply it to set your makeup, creating a smooth finish.
