How to Keep Your Makeup Lasting Fresh All Day

Whether it’s that all important date, or last minute work meeting with the boss – looking your best can help you feel your most confident.

So here is a bit of makeup wisdom on how to keep your face looking its very best for those important dates in your diary. Because for us, working girls, kicking butt at work and looking great doing it, doesn’t take as much effort as you might think.

  • Carry a translucent powder. This will set your makeup and take away any shine without adding colour to your face. I personally use Mac Prep and Prime.
  • Always moisturise before applying your makeup. If your skin is dehydrated, it will drink up your foundation, and it will disappear over the course of the day.
  • Use a primer, this will create a barrier between the natural oils on your skin and the products you use, and prevent the makeup from sliding off your face. I currently love Makeup Forever Microperfecting Primer. It’s oil free and enhances the skin beautifully. If you don’t like wearing foundation, wearing a primer by itself will give your skin a more polished look.
  • Keep your hands off your face. This is so simple, but so important. Touching your face will not only smudge your makeup, but will encourage future breakouts as well.
