Temperatures are rising and the days are lasting longer — wouldn't it
be nice if your makeup did, too? As we all know, getting all-day
coverage and color can be a challenge. Here are a few tips that can
It's primetime, ladies. If you're not already using a primer,
you definitely should. On top of minimizing pores and smoothing the
surface of your skin, it helps your moisturizer absorb more quickly,
which keeps your foundation from melting away. Primers come in all
sizes, shapes, and formulas – from moisturizing primers packed with SPF,
to the show-stopping tinted beauty balms that combine toner,
moisturizer, and primer.
Get ready to double up. Apply a cream eye shadow
first, then apply a powder shadow over it. The powder and cream will
bind together and "set" the color for hours. You can match shades if you
like, but it's also a great opportunity to mix and match. Try a pink
cream with a gold powder shadow for a sparkly look.
Get in line for this one simple trick: Instead of matching your lip liner to your lipstick, choose a lip liner
that matches your natural lip color. Then, after lining your lips as
usual, fill in your whole lip before applying a long-wearing lipstick
like CoverGirl Outlast Lipcolor. The liner will bind to your lipstick
and provide you with a base color that'll last all day.
All done? Lovely. Now finish up with a dusting of translucent loose powder
to set your makeup. If you've got an especially long day and no time to
touch up, you can go for the big guns: a quick mist of flexible-hold
hairspray all over your face (hey, it works).
