Do you have trouble keeping your makeup in place all day? Here are a few tips:
Primers can clog your pores, causing you to break out. Therefore I don't wear a primer on a daily basis. However, when I'm going for a heavier makeup look and I need it to stay in place for many hours, I do put on a primer. Choose one that suits your skin. I use one for dry skin from Smashbox (photo above).
It is important to set everything on your face. If you know you are going to be sweating, it might be a good idea to set your whole face with a powder, assuming that you are wearing a foundation. I often have trouble with creasing under my eyes. A normal setting powder doesn't work well there, so I use one that is meant for the under eye area. Honestly, I use setting powders most days. Sometimes I may have to apply more powder as the day goes on, but that doesn't bother me.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of setting sprays. They tend to sting my face. But I have very sensitive skin. Setting sprays do help your makeup to stay on for a longer amount of time. I used Fix + from MAC this summer, as my face gets oily on hot summer days. But setting sprays are a bad idea for me the rest of the year. I actually like using face mists in stead, but for a different reason. Using a face mist after you're done doing your makeup, makes everything look more natural. Face mists takes away that powdery finish and give the skin its glow back.
And that's it! Remember that different things work for different people. Experiment and find out what works for you. And just have fun with it!
Oh, and are you wondering about my new hair color?
