How to make your foundation last longer and look better

Is there any specific order when it comes to applying makeup? Oh yes… Most of the time, we start only with the foundation, and we can get a little frustrated because it doesn’t look as fresh and perfect as we would like. There are some steps we should follow before and after the foundation and some hacks to make it last longer and look even better!

 

Always apply moisturizer before starting your makeup, as it makes the application even. Wait a few minutes after your application before priming. Two of our favorite moisturizers are SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer 2 oz ($35.99) and Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer ($28.99). Remember that by moisturizing your skin, it will allow your makeup to go on smoother and last longer.

 

Whether you wear a full face of makeup every day or you prefer to keep it simple with BB cream and tinted lip balm, makeup primer is a godsend when trying to combat shine or create a smooth base for foundation. The bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer ($20.99) is a great option because it prepares skin for flawless coverage. Plus, it conceals enlarged pores, uneven texture, and dryness while creating a silky, smooth canvas.

Many people often skip this step because they believe they don’t really need it, and are unsure of how to use it or don’t think it’s worth the investment. However, using a primer underneath your makeup will make everything last longer, whether that’s on your skin or in your cosmetics bag.

 

Sealing your pores is also essential! By taking care of this, you will be able to make your foundation even and it will give you that doll-face effect. In order to seal your pores, you should definitely go with Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion ($31.99) this product will take care of sealing pores and creating almost a blanket over them. This hack is extremely important if you like liquid foundations since they can make your pores more visible.

 

If you think it is time for foundation, not yet! Sunscreen protection is a must that your skin will highly appreciate! I know you’re probably thinking “My makeup already has SPF in it, so that should have you covered, right?” Wrong.

Applying SPF is a step we simply cannot miss to have our face fully covered. The John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99) is a natural sunscreen that will replenish the skin of vitamins and minerals. It is important that you follow this step carefully before foundation, but allow the product to set and really penetrate the skin.

 

With these hacks, you’ll have that perfect canvas to create the makeup look you want!

Since mascara should be applied last as a finishing touch,  it often can create a smudgy mess. Avoid this by placing a business card right up against your lash line.
