Have you ever wondered why you spend twice as much time in front of the mirror than your best friend and still her makeup always lasts longer than yours? Don’t you think that there might be a logical explanation of this and aren’t you curious to know the big secret your friend has not told you yet, even though she’s listed as your soul mate in your friends list? Well, we’re friendly and helpful enough to give you the hints and tricks you need to know in order to make your makeup – whether everyday or for the evening – last as long as you want it to! Simply, follow these rules and practices….
1. Apply the facial beauty products in the right succession
Always begin your makeup procedure with a deep cleansing approach. Exfoliate your skin with a decent product, so all the dead cells will be removed by themselves, but not alongside with your foundation, while you’re at work. The concealer goes always first, because it has a healing and covering function, while the powder and the foundation have a matting, beautifying and fixing one!
2. Use the right products
Choosing long-lasting products is much better and guess what – much cheaper – than wearing ordinary makeup that will split all over your face when you hear some good news from your boss or when your mum calls you to tell you your sister’s given birth to twins! Also, have in mind that the more you put on the ordinary products with no resistance to water and wind, the more you’ll waste and eventually you’ll spend more money on getting new ones each month!
3. Your lips need some primer, too!
It’s not a must to cover your lips with facial primer, but at least you can put some lip balm and powder in advance. Let the lips absorb these products and then put on your favorite lipstick. And if you think that your friend does not “eat up” her lipstick during lunch, you’re wrong. She simply carries her lipstick in her bag and in any convenient moment, she freshens up her lips secretly!
4. Do not apply beauty products with your hands!
Well, first of all, such an approach will destroy your clothes, and second, you will waste most of your beauty products by letting them get stuck to your skin which is dying to swallow them up. Also, why using fingers when there are so many awesome and helpful beauty tools like brushes?
5. Apply the right amount of makeup
It’s certain that if you put too much eye shadow on your eyelids, eventually most of it will go down and get wasted. Estimate the right amount of the makeup product and apply it without exceeding or reducing it!
