We all have days when we look in the mirror and just wonder why nothing is working. It doesn’t seem to matter what you do, or how much you blend, your makeup just doesn’t look right.
So, the next time you’re wondering why your makeup isn’t looking flawless, remember these things:
- You keep touching your face
We know that touching our hair makes it greasy, so why do we sit at our desk and lean on our hands? The warmth of your hands, combined with the constant touching, breaks down your makeup. Not only that but it also spreads germs and can worsen acne, so keep those hands away from your face.
- You’re not blotting
Excess oil is usually the main reason for your makeup breaking down. If your skin is oily, then you will know the pain of looking in the mirror at 3 pm. So rather than re-applying makeup on top of grease, you need to blot to take away that excess oil.
- You’re using too many products
If you apply moisturiser in the morning you need to give it time before you apply your makeup or else it will slip right off. But if you have oily skin, then skip moisturiser altogether in the morning because it doesn’t need it.
- You’re using the wrong kind of foundation
As a beauty team, we are always trying different foundations. If a foundation breaks down on your skin by mid-afternoon then it’s not the right one. If you have oily skin, look out for water-based or oil-free formulas
- You’re not using a primer
Use a primer every single day because it will help your foundation last longer. If you don’t use one and have problems with your makeup lasting, then it is highly recommended investing.
- You’re not using a setting spray
Setting sprays might seem a bit gimmicky but like primers, it actually works. It’s not necessarily a step that you will have to do every day, but if your makeup is going to be put to the test always finish it with a few sprays.
- You’re not using a powder
If you want your foundation to last, you have to set it with a powder. Any liquid makeup has to be set, or it will just wear off.
- You’re touching up with a powder brush
When your face is shiny it’s because there is a build-up of excess sebum and oil, but all a powder brush will do is further move your makeup.
Instead, use a beauty sponge. The patting motion won’t lift your foundation like a brush and you touch up with a powder foundation. But remember to blot before touching up.
If you ever feel that why is your makeup not lasting all day, then remember these few things and follow the. You will definitely see results!
