Each of us wants the makeup to hold on to the face longer and retain its original appearance. Of course, the best way out here is to use resistant color cosmetics, but for everyday use it is not for everyone. too dry the skin.
Let’s leave the super-resistant cosmetics for weddings and photo shoots and try to use the tips that will extend the life of makeup daily.
Before applying decorative cosmetics, the skin must be moisturized so that the skin does not become oily after an hour. For its fatty areas, special matting agents can be used.
Another important point is to wait for the full absorption of the moisturizer, otherwise the makeup will surely float in half an hour. Yes, and even apply the tone to oily skin does not work – he will lie spots.
Under this mysterious word lies the usual base under the shadow or tonal means. Previously, I had a problem – not a single shadow held on the eyelid for more than an hour or two, some of them always gathered in an ugly fold.
After acquiring the primer, I forgot what it is. Another secret – before applying it, wipe the skin with a tonic, so eye makeup will become even more persistent. By the way, the primer is not more expensive than the same mascara and has already appeared in the line of cosmetics of budget brands.
Here, alas, to turn an ordinary lipstick into a super resistant will not work. However, there is a way to slightly increase its durability and brightness – after applying the first layer, remove the excess with a dry paper napkin, then lightly powder your lips and apply the next layer of lipstick.
By the way, the primer can be used not only for the face and eyelids, it is great for lips. True, a little dry out their delicate skin.
For skin prone to oily shine, it is better to use water-based or mineral-based tonal tools. And if the shine has already appeared, quickly get rid of it (almost without damaging the makeup) will help special wipes that work on the principle of ordinary blotter.
If you are used to applying foundation with your fingers, do not forget to degrease them before applying makeup. To do this, simply wash them with soap or rub with a tonic. Otherwise, the skin will become oily. However, it is still better and more hygienic to use a special sponge.
Here, as with lipstick, for a good effect it is better to choose waterproof mascara. But I prefer to use it in rare cases – in the heat, bad weather, or for special moments like a matinee in kindergarten.
And to all fans to dilute mascara with improvised means, I hasten to inform you that from this it keeps on eyelashes worse. Regardless of the fact that it was – alcohol or solution for lenses.
These are the little secrets to help me extend the life of my makeup. What methods do you use? Let’s share the experience!
