There is no beauty woe greater than the makeup you have spent hours applying melting away and breaking up on your skin as the day goes by, looking much less than perfect by the time you make it home.
Choosing the right products is essential when creating a look which lasts and stays in place all day long. Knowing your skin types and applying your products in the correct way will also help to extend the longevity of your makeup.
How to make your makeup last all day
We’ve teamed up with Urban Decay to take you through all you need to know when it comes to creating a long-lasting, flawless makeup look.
1. Prime your skin
Primer is the essential first step when it comes to applying your makeup if you want your look to last all day long. With primers to mattify and control or add glow to your skin, you can boost the longevity of your makeup whilst also enhancing its appearance.
If your skin is oily/combination:
If your t-zone gets shiny throughout the day and you struggle to keep oils at bay, choosing a mattifying primer can help to ensure the makeup you place on those areas does not budge.
The Urban Decay Complexion De-Slick Primer smooths and perfectly preps your skin without disrupting whatever you apply on top. Formulated with mattifying natural clay derivatives and silica, De-Slick will minimise shine and help to keep your makeup in place all day.
If your skin is dry:
Adding a boost of hydration to dry skin is essential to keeping your makeup looking perfect. As dry areas can cause your foundation to break up on your skin, using a primer like the Urban Decay Rebound Collagen Prep Spray will allow your makeup to apply and set perfectly.
The radiance-reviving spray is formulated with Chia Seed and Collagen to plump and brighten your complexion making it the perfect first step in your beauty routine.
