Keep Your Makeup In Place All Day With These Tips

There is nothing more irritating then looking in the mirror at lunchtime only to realize that almost all of your makeup has worn off. You might think that keeping your face in place all day long is impossible, but it’s actually, not.
With Winter on the way, you know that soon enough, on the way to work, you'll have to deal with wind and rain, which can lead to all sorts of makeup issues. That’s why we've got some great tips, to ensure that come Winter, you know how to keep your makeup in place all day long.
Cleanse your face
Before you start applying your makeup, one of the most important things you should do is cleanse your face. This will help to ensure that when you put your makeup on, that it sticks properly and won’t easily wear off.
Once you have cleaned your skin, the next step is to apply a lightweight moisturizer. Leave your moisturizer to be absorbed by the skin for a few minutes, so that when you apply your makeup, there is no oily residue left.
Always use primer
You know how your nail polish stays in place that little bit longer when you use a base coat? Well, it’s the same with your makeup, if you want it to stay in place, a base coat or primer is a must. Using a primer will help to fill in any open pores, it will help to blur imperfections and, best of all, it will act as glue for your makeup.
Top tip: Just like with moisturizers, there are different primers for different skin types. So when you are choosing a primer, make sure to pick one that is suitable for your skin type.
Opt for waterproof products
Want to stop the rain from causing your makeup to melt down your face - you need waterproof products. You have most probably heard of waterproof mascara, but did you know that you can also get a foundation that’s water-resistant?
Don’t apply makeup with your fingers
Far too many of us use our fingers when applying makeup. However, if we want our makeup to stay on all day, we shouldn’t do. Our skin has oil in it, which gets spread onto each surface that we touch, including our face. Oil can cause your makeup to run more quickly, which is why it’s so important to use makeup brushes when applying your products.
Set your makeup
Once you have finished applying your makeup, use a translucent powder to fix it in place. Using powder over the top of your other products will soak up any excess oil on your skin, and will set your makeup in place.
Top tip: If you wear pencil eyeliner, sweep a small amount of powder under the eyelids and use it to ensure that your eyeliner doesn’t smudge.
These are just some helpful tips to keep your makeup in place all day!

Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…
