Hack 1: Make strategic choices
If you don’t want your foundation coming off while you’re on the dance floor, make sure you use a waterproof foundation. Ensure that all the other makeup products are also waterproof as well. You don’t want that eyeliner and mascara running out. Also, ensure that you use the same formula. So, if it’s a water-based formula for your base, make sure your moisturizer is the same.
Hack 2: Primer is key
A primer adds longevity to your make-up. It’s applies more so in humid weather. After moisturising and before foundation, apply a primer. Some makeup artists suggest using a separate primer for your eyelids to hold your eye makeup.
Hack 3: Give your lips some TLC
Before you do your lip makeup, it helps to exfoliate and moisturise. If you want your lipstick to last, moisturise the area around your lips as well—lipstick bleeds happen when lipstick spreads to the drier areas of the skin. Before your lip colour, make sure your line then as this will also prevent bleeding of colour.
Hack 4: Don’t forget to add a mist
A makeup mist or setting spray adds the final touch to your makeup masterpiece. It gives your face a beautiful, sheer finish, helps set the makeup and makes it last longer. This step also gives your skin a surge of moisture, which gives it a beautifully, nourished look.
