Let’s face it – when the makeup you worked so hard perfecting doesn’t last until cocktail hour, it can be quite discouraging. This can happen due to the oils in our skin breaking down the makeup over the day, and even due to weather conditions like humidity. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to ensure the longevity of our look.
The first thing you should do before applying any makeup is prep your skin. Using a light moisturizer will help create a smooth canvas for makeup application. The second prep step is applying a makeup primer, such as Bellapierre’s HD Makeup Primer. This will help smooth fine lines and the appearance of pores. Prepping your skin will ensure your makeup goes on all smoothly as possible while avoiding flakiness or cakiness.
The next key step to locking in your look is setting your concealer and foundation with setting powder. Bellapierre’s HD Setting Powder is a lightweight powder that is talc-free and translucent, and helps absorb any excess oils while ensuring any cream or liquid complexion products stay in place throughout the day.
The last and final step to all-day makeup is using a setting spray. Bellapierre’s weightless HD Setting Spray goes on without leaving your skin feeling sticky or greasy. The calibrated misting spray locks your makeup in place for hours, making it sweat-proof and less transferable.
Practicing any or all of these techniques will greatly increase the wear time of your makeup, especially during the summer months when humidity and sweat are inevitable. As long as you prep and set you can feel confident knowing your makeup looks just as good as when you first applied it.
