You have a lot to do in the morning. Get yourself ready, get the kids ready, and get out of the house in time to catch the train. Whether you feel it or not, it can be quite stressful. Today we’re going to offer you some advice on how to get your makeup to look fresh all day, so that your morning routine won’t include worrying about which products will need touching up throughout the day.
It’s important to start your morning by washing your skin with a gentle cleanser so that you remove any dirt, makeup or residue on your skin.
After you’ve applied moisturizer to your skin, allow it to dry before you start applying any other sort of makeup. It may take a few minutes longer, but in the end, this extra time is worth it because your makeup will go on better and will stay on longer.
During the summer use a powder foundation or concealer so that your skin can breathe more freely and you won’t feel the need to constantly wipe your face.
Before applying any eye makeup, apply a primer so that your shadows last longer and look more even.
Using brown mascara instead of black will help to widen your eyes and give you a fresher look. The same applies to eye shadows that are in the brown or pink family.
Matte lipsticks tend to last longer than shimmery lipsticks and glosses so it’s good to stay with one of those. However chances are that you may still need to reapply once or twice during the day.
Don’t use too much makeup- especially during the warmer months. When you load up on foundations, concealers, powders, moisturizers and makeup, your makeup is more likely to look cakey and come apart throughout the day. Use only products that you absolutely need.
These tips won’t add a lot more time to your routine, but will save you a lot of time later on in the day. Enjoy!
