Color U Bold: Top 5 Tricks to Make Your Makeup Last Longer


This weekend will be filled with lots of holiday cheer and late night parties. So instead of worrying about your makeup not lasting all night long try out these tried and true tips and tricks for Flawless Makeup!

1.Pick the Right Foundation 

There are so many 24hr Foundations out there like the Revlon Color Stay or the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation for Oily to Combination skin.  For Dry or Mature skin try Maybeline Fit Me Dewy and Smooth Foundation or the L’Oreal True Match Lumi.


2.Use Powder Before and After

Powder is extremely important for making you foundation last. If you are oily the best way to combat this is to use a transclucent powder before you put on foundation. This allows your foundation to have something to stick to leaving it on a lot longer. After foundation is applied just add your regular powder to fully set everything.

3.Prep Lids for Eye-Shadow

We all hate when eyeshadow crease in the fine lines of your upper eye, Right?! By prepping the eyes first it allows any oil you may have on your lids to be absorbed. Allowing a great base for a smoky eye!


4.Don’t Forget Setting Spray

Another thing you can do to set the face is by using  a setting spray. The beauty industry has a variety of setting sprays for different functions like this Matte Setting Spray by L’Oreal or a Dewey Finish like the one from NYX.


5. Apply Blush the Right Way

To keep blush on all day first add a creamy blush to the apples of cheeks and blend out. Then take your normal powder blush and sweep on just a tad for a flush that doesnt leave you looking like a clown.

Now these tips are for the girl or woman that is sick of doing a bomb job on there makeup only to be an oily mess mid dance session at a party! You can take 1 or 2 of these tips and apply them to your most problematic feature or you can take all of them for a long lasting staying power beyond 24 hrs!
