PR Sample // Own Purchase

One common question I still get from friends (and readers) is how to make makeup last all day. And if you are cursed with oily skin, you know exactly what I mean. You start out fresh only to look like a sweaty pig few hours later. You see my tips are nothing carved in stone; in fact some of you maybe doing it already. But in case you’re still looking to solve your beauty dilemma, I hope this helps you.

Always start with a clean face. CTM or Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize. Then POSS.

1. Prime. Use an oil-free and non-comedogenic primer. The more multi-tasking a product is, the less product you pile on your face. bareMinerals Primetime is a primer and pore minimizer in one. MDSolarSciences Mineral Screen tinted gel SPF 30+ is a sunscreen, primer, and pore minimizer in one. 

2. Oil-free foundation. Choose a foundation that is lightweight, oil-free, and preferably with matte finish. Again, the more multi-tasking a product is, the the less crap you pile on your face. Ergo, your skin breathes better. tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hr full coverage foundation has SPF 15. Hourglass Immaculate liquid foundation dries to a matte powdery finish.

3. Set. Set liquid foundation or concealer with powder. Again, choose something that is light and non-comedogenic. Lightly dust powder over your face. One or two rounds should be enough or you end up looking cakey. My recent go-to is Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.

4. Spritz. Once you’re done with your face (blush and bronze if you must), spritz makeup setting spray about 6 inches away from your face.  In my experience, a toner works just as good as a makeup setting spray like Skindinavia. I prefer to use rosewater to give me a very mild dewy finish.

Apply mascara and lippy. #fin
