Friday Fashion: 5 Tips to Make Your Makeup Last All Day

With graduation and summer right around the corner, here are some easy ways for keeping your makeup looking flawless all day, every day!

Tip #1: Wash Your Face & Moisturize (with an Oil-Free Lotion)
This will help get rid of dirt and excess oil that can make putting on makeup difficult. Also, moisturizing is always a good habit to get into, no matter what your age is!
For combination skin (skin with oily and dry spots), I suggest Neutrogena's "Oil-Free Moisture—Combination Skin."

Tip #2: Primer, Primer, Primer
You can choose to also use a foundation primer, but the tips in this list will allow for you to go without it! The only primer that I occasionally do use is an eyeshadow primer. (It works well with eyeliner as well!)
I suggest Urban Decay's "Eyeshadow Primer Potion—Original."

Tip #3: Liquid Foundation
First off, use liquid foundation as opposed to powder foundations if you want it to stick! 
I suggest Clinique's "Perfectly Real Makeup."

Tip #4: Setting Powder
The key to keeping the makeup on your face then is to set your foundation. You can use a loose powder, but I like to use a powder foundation!
I suggest The Face Shop's "Phytogenic Infinite Powder Foundation."

Tip #5: Makeup Setting Spray
And this is the pièce de résistance. It will keep even the sheerest makeup on your face. Pinky promise. [Warning: DO NOT spray until you are absolutely done with your makeup. Also, do not attempt to "freshen up" your makeup once you've sprayed this. You'll end up with a mess!]
I suggest Urban Decay's "Chill Makeup Setting Spray."

Enjoy and stay fresh~
