Ready, set, face

The biggest struggle in wearing makeup is how to keep it on all day long. That problem only becomes more severe in the summer time. I believe I have found the best foundations and tricks to keep a full face of makeup all day long. Whether you’re at amusement parks in the sun and heat, or indoors working, I have got something for you. Check out the video portion of these tips to learn more.

-Medium/Full Coverage for Oily Skin: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, Revlon ColorStay

-Medium/Full Coverage for Dry Skin: Maybelline Fit Me or Betterskin, or Revlon ColorStay

-Sheer/Medium Coverage for Combination Skin: L’Oreal Tru- Match, or Milani 2 in 1 Foundation

-Best Setting Powder: Coty Airspun Powder – Translucent

*Tip: Set with a powder ONLY in the places that you are oily. Apply with a wet sponge to bulletproof the look.

-Setting Spray: Urban Decay All


For those searching for less coverage, try using BB Cream, tinted moisturizer or cushion foundation (Loreal Tru-Match Lumi Cushion). Conceal trouble spots with a heavy duty concealer such as Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof.

These tricks give my makeup an extra six hours of wear. I will wear this when I know I have a long day ahead of me.
