Putting makeup on takes a lot of time and effort. To get the best results, you need to have a picture in mind; a good visualization is needed first. You need to know what to do to bring that picture into life. One of the challenges when doing makeup is letting it remain fresh and unruined throughout the the whole day.
You need to stay fresh with that makeup on especially if there are lots of events and activities. Although that’s not a piece of cake, there are ways by which you actually can. Here are 5 of them:
1 > NO POWDER
Powder is probably one of the most basic makeup products which you usually have on your bag, however, it’s not very helpful when you have makeup on and you’re sweating at the same time. Powder mixed sweat isn’t so good if you are maintaining an image, literally. The powder will become cakey and chalky. When that happens, facial lines such as wrinkles become more visible.
2 > COOLNESS BE FIRST
Sometimes, because you’re in a hurry, you pay little attention to waiting. After taking a bath, you have the tendency to just immediately apply makeup because you are close to running late already. That may be time-saving for you, however, it makes your makeup less effective. It also shortens your makeup’s lasting period.
Be patient and wait for your skin to cool down before applying makeup. If your skin is warm, it becomes more able to draw in the ingredients that may lead to breakouts.
3 > PRIME PRIMER
A loyal friend that let the others stick with you as well is the primer. It is highly recommended that before you put foundation on, you apply primer first. The primer keeps your makeup from melting off while or after you sweat.
Aside from letting your makeup hang onto your skin for a long time, the primer also functions as a your coat from shiny skin tendencies. Your eyeshadow, which is very obvious, may disappear or scatter anytime with sweat, so to be sure, apply primer on your eyelids as well.
4 > LIGHT FOUNDATION
The heavier the foundation, the more likely it is for makeup to get dragged down your skin. Wear light foundation only to prevent getting a thick sweat of it. Choose oil-free products too so your skin can be breathe well and be healthier.
5 > CHOOSE WATERPROOF
Especially during summer and when the weather is warm, you sweat a lot, so when you put makeup, there is a huge proneness to getting a sticky, creasy makeup look in the middle of the day.
Not to mention, there also are other tiring and sweating activities during summer or just simply when the sun is up. You go swimming and playing outdoor sports as well, and those are just some of the times when wearing makeup becomes a hassle because it melts or is washed off. Choose water resistant makeup products to help your makeup stay.
STAY THERE AND STAY FRESH
When you wear makeup the whole day, there’s a big tendency that at some point, it will eventually fade or lose its glow. This is why knowing helpful tips to stay fresh and avoid sweaty makeup look is important. Hopefully, you’ve learned a lot, and you’ve been reminded of these things so you’ll have a better and longer lasting makeup next time!
