There is nothing more annoying than looking at the mirror in the middle of an event, and seeing that your foundation has almost worn off. And, if for some reason your foundation wears off your entire look gets destroyed, no matter how perfect your eyebrows look or how on-point your contouring is!
Especially for people with oily skin, this can be their worst nightmare. But hey, wait! Do you even need to have any beauty-related issues, with BeautyHooked around?
Here is the best routine that you need to follow to get the flawless foundation which lasts all day!!
1. Start with a clean face
Firstly, make sure that your face is completely clean and has no dirt or oil on it. For that purpose, properly cleanse your face before applying your makeup with a gentle cleanser.
Beauty Hooked’s Recommendation: Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser
2. Moisturize your face
Moisturized skin is healthy skin. If you have dry patches on your skin, then anything that you put onto your face will only be settling over the dry flakes, and thus would not blend at all. For this purpose, always use a moisturizer that won’t make your skin greasy. Then, wait for 5 minutes after applying the moisturizer so that it gets completely absorbed into your skin.
Beauty Hooked’s Recommendation: L’oreal Youth Code Luminize Super Serum
3. Prime your face
Basically, you have to prepare a canvas for a flawless, smooth foundation coverage. What a primer does is that it fills in the pores, blurs any imperfections, and helps the makeup last longer. Does it get any better than that?
Beauty Hooked’s Recommendation: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
4. Pick the right foundation
Your foundation itself would play a major role in how it looks and how long it stays. Therefore, choose an oil-free foundation and apply it in very thin layers and build up the coverage from that. If your foundation layer is too thick, then your final look will appear cakey and would eventually melt away.
Beauty Hooked’s Recommendation:
For normal skin: MAC Studio Fix Fluid
For oily skin: L’oreal Infallible
For Dry Skin: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
5. Set your foundation
Make sure once you blend your foundation into your skin, use a translucent powder to set it, to get a long-lasting flawless finish. Moreover, translucent Powder would remove the excess oil and make the skin appear smoother.
Beauty Hooked’s Recommendation: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
6. Lock it all in
After the translucent powder is set, use a makeup fixing spray to lock it all in. This is a very important step if you want your foundation to last all day. Thus, the makeup fixing spray will make your skin and makeup look natural and flawless, with extra hours of wearability.
BeautyHooked’s Recommendation: Urban Decay All Nighter Spray
7. Blot it away
Lastly, just keep a blotting paper in your bag, in case your face starts to get any oils on it. Because it will help blot it away without messing up your makeup.
