Your makeup looks amazing when you first apply it in the morning, but by the time you get home at the end of the day, it looks like you didn’t even put any on! Fortunately, when you have the right products and techniques, you can have flawless makeup all day long. Read on for some tips for making your makeup last.

Prep your pores

The first step to ensuring your makeup lasts all day is exfoliation. When you exfoliate, you shed those pesky dead skin cells, leaving smooth skin behind. This allows you to apply your makeup evenly, which will in turn, last longer. Invest in a good exfoliating face scrub to use twice a week, and try our exfoliating lip scrub before one of our lip creams for flawless lip color that lasts all day.

Less is more

It might makes sense to you to layer your makeup to make it last longer, but this is actually counterproductive. When you add too much product to your face, it is more likely to smear and smudge. This is especially true for foundation, so always use a light hand (or even better, brush!). One way to accomplish this is by applying a thin layer with a brush, then using a sponge to absorb any excess product.

Use the right products

At Beauty For Real, we designed our makeup for real women who don’t have time to spend worrying all day about how their faces look. Our customers want to look beautiful when they apply makeup in the morning, and be able to feel confident they still look good at 3 p.m. That is why we design our makeup to be both easy to apply and long-lasting! For example, our formula for our blush/luminizer is specially designed to go on creamy for easy application, but dry as a powder to set. The key to makeup that lasts all day is using the right products that are designed for all-day wear. Whether you use our black eyeliner, our water resistant mascara, or our long-lasting lip liner, you are bound to look flawless all day long.

Don’t get too touchy

We all do it: at some point today, without thinking about it, you touched your face. This is not the end of the world, but you should definitely avoid touching your face when you can. Not only are you spreading germs and allergens and clogging your pores, you’re also ruining your makeup. It doesn’t matter if you are using the best long-wear makeup money can buy; if you keep rubbing, picking at, and putting your hands on your face, you are going to lose some makeup along the way. Do yourself a favor and keep those paws off yourself!

Set it up

If you really need your makeup to look perfect after hours of wear, you may want to set it with a translucent powder or a setting spray. Applying a light layer of translucent powder with a soft makeup brush gives you the staying power of a powder without messing with your makeup. Alternatively, setting sprays are designed to keep your makeup in place all day long. After you have done with your makeup, spritz your face and head out the door. At Beauty For Real, our long-lasting makeup lets you put your best face forward, even hours after application!
