Getting your makeup to last all day is easier than you think. It’s true that the summer heat and humidity can make you shine too much as soon as you step outside, but with a few simple tricks, you can learn to create a melt-proof makeup look.
How to get your makeup to last all day
- Use a primer. It not only gets your skin ready, but it also ensures smooth application, minimizes pores, and allows your makeup to last longer.
- Set with a translucent loose powder. Whenever I want to keep shine at bay and confidently know that my makeup will look fresh throughout the day, I apply Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder, first with a puff or dry sponge, and then I brush off the excess with a big powder brush. For my latest TV segment I used Translucent Honey to give me a warm, summery look without being too obvious. That way I didn’t fade under the lights I use for TV appearances. The matte finish is subtle, doesn’t crease, looks natural, and lasts for 16 hours. It’s non-comedogenic, which for me is a must because I don’t want anything on my face that will block pores.
- Finally, use a setting spray or mineral water mist. Not only does this feel extra refreshing during the hot summer months, but it effectively seals your makeup so it lasts all day.
