Keep your face on: 5 makeup staying tips

My tips on how to keep your makeup in place aaaall night (or day) long.
Lets start from the top:

1. Brows
To keep stray hairs in place, try spraying some hairspray onto the bristly end of a brow brush and giving them a good comb.

2. Complexion

Although foundation is called ‘foundation’ as in, it goes at the bottom, there is a vital first step: PRIME. Primers really do help your makeup last soo much longer and they prevent build up by leaving your skin soft and smooth to work with. Currently I’m using the Invisible Fill Airbrush primer by Mirenesse cosmetics. Cheaper alternative? Moisturise!! It wont particularly help with your makeups staying power, but it will give an easy and smooth application.

3.Lipstick
Want to help your colour last all night? First, moisturise your lips with a small amount of lip balm. Too much will cause your lipstick to smudge and come off on every glass/person that you come in contact with. Next, apply your lipstick using a lip brush. This will ensure you don’t apply too much as;
A) it will come off on everything
B) it will help to stain your lips rather than the product sitting on top
C) you wont use up your lipstick as quickly!
Next, apply a lip liner to the outer edges of your lips. This will help define them and act as a barrier between your lipstick and the rest of your face!

4. Smile
The ultimate beauty bag essential! Vaseline.
Not only can it be used for anything and everything, applying a small amount to your front teeth will keep your smile bright and stop lipstick sticking to your teeth. Amazeballs.

5. Eyeliner crease
We’ve all experienced the trauma of the awkward eyeliner crease… This is where your top liner somehow finds its way onto the crease of your upper lid. I didn’t want to fork out for a fancy eye-primer so I went back to basics…
To get rid of any oil on your lid which may cause eyeliner to run, dab a skin coloured eyeshadow or face power across your lid before applying your liner! Lately I’ve been using the Studio Magic BB Pore powder by Mirenesse.
