Top Tips On How To Make Your Makeup last longer?

Certainly we should not be slaves to our beauty products, but on some occasions we may require our makeup to stay perfect throughout the day. Here are the steps, tricks and tips that you need to follow to succeed with maintaining that beautiful look all day long.
No.1 : Cleaning the face
Clean the skin on your face well to remove dead skin cells from the surface. Do not do peeling and cleansing right before applying make up, this way uou will avoid redness and irritation of the skin. If you have oily or combination skin, pay particular attention to the T-zone.
No. 2 : Hydration
Choose a moisturising cream and apply it on your face to ensure a gentle and smooth surface for your makeup. Wait 5 to 15 minutes, depending on your skin to absorb the cream before proceeding with the following steps.
No. 3 : Make up base
Apply a foundation makeup whose ingredients will be based on the below criteria. If you are spending a lot of time in the open, look for waterproof base for makeup. If applying with a sponge, make sure to be well cleaned previously. Apply in upward and external direction and avoid rubbing the skin.
No. 4 : Concealer
Select the appropriate concealer for your skin. Use a concealer stick if you have oily skin or liquid concealer if you have dry skin. Apply around the eyes and the places where the complexion is not equal. Concealers, foundations and powders made from minerals last longer and are healthier for your skin
