Whether you prefer a striking cut crease with lots and lots of glitter, or you're more of a toned down, natural makeup kind of girl, you no doubt take painstaking care to create the perfect makeup look every day. Contour here, highlight there, maybe a splash of red for perfect pouty lips. Your body is a temple after all, and there's nothing wrong with decorating it.
All too often though, we get halfway through our day only to realize that our beautiful look needs reapplied or touched up. This can be so frustrating and almost impossible to keep up with at times if you're someone who is constantly on the go.
Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of tips to keep your makeup looking perfect all day long!
Start with a clean canvas!
We all know that oil and water don’t mix. The oils on your skin are no exception to that rule!
If you want your makeup to last, start with a clean face. use a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt or oil. we recommend a cruelty-free product such as Honest Beauty refeshingly clean gel cleanser.
After using a towel to gently pat your face dry, apply a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer with SPF protection and give it about 5 minutes to set before applying any further product.
Primed and ready!
this one is a no brainer! If you've ever had a manicure, you know that the best looking nails always start with a good base coat. The same rules apply to makeup! Using a primer will help fill in your pores, blur imperfections, and help your makeup look better and last longer.
Pair this with a good cruelty-free spf foundation like Pacifica Dreamy Cover Bare-Faced Foundation to leave your skin looking healthy and bright.
High Contrast Lip Color!
Not all lip products are created equal, we find that some brands and products leave much to be desired when it comes to all-day wear. High pigment lip stains are a must, the color clings to your lips much better than traditional lipsticks. We absolutely LOVE Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lip Stain.
Lashes that Just Won't Quit
Dreamy eyelashes are must for the best killer looks this fall, and Dollar Eyelash Club has the hottest styles in keratin and faux-mink cruelty-free lashes. We'll send you 4 pairs every month to keep your lash game on point.
Lock in Your Best Look.
Once you've got your color applied and your look on point, it's time to set your makeup with a translucent powder, which will smooth the look of your makeup and absorb any excess oil. Bodisafe is an all natural vegan brand that offers a wonderful line of finishing powders for all skin types.
Keep the Essentials on Hand
Prepare for any melted makeup emergencies by keeping a small makeup bag full of all your essentials essentials. Products we like to keep on hand at all times are blotting papers, pressed powder, and your lip color of the day.
Resist the urge to touch your face throughout the day! The oils on your hands will transfer to your skin, which will cause your makeup to budge. Not only that, but the germs on your hands can lead to future breakouts, and nobody wants that!
