Lionel Richie was frantically singing "All night long" to celebrate endless parties. Day and night, we would like our make up to do the same and survive our lifestyle. For what good is it to apply makeup when the fruit of our efforts loses its effect a few hours later? Depending on the quality of the skin, the makeup naturally holds more or less good. But we can always improve the outfit with some tricks and miracle products.
Take care of your skin
This may seem obvious, but a healthy skin will retain better makeup pigments than a skin in pain. No miracle but common sense. Makeup or not, you never skip the face cleansing session morning and evening. Once a week, we add at this step a facial scrub, adapted to its type of skin. It will remove all the dead cells and refine the skin texture. However, the makeup is all the better on a smooth epidermis.
Bet on good hydration
Choosing a cream should never be done at random. To be effective, it must meet our expectations in terms of textures and our hydration needs. Dry skin will not use the same cream as combination or oily skin. An action that is prepared first and foremost by applying a floral water that corresponds to our needs. Lavender for combination and oily skin, chamomile for dry and sensitive skin for example. Perfectly hydrated, the skin will be better able to make the makeup last longer.
Apply a base
To fix his sound face powderfirst, we start by applying a make-up base. According to the brands, it is found in transparent or colored version. For the second, one chooses it according to its skin (blue for the redness of the skins clear, green for the redness of the skins dates, yellow for the skins black or mestizo, pink to refresh the fair complexions, mauve to neutralize the skins too much yellow).
The base will perfect hydration and prepare the skin to receive makeup. When the skin is tired, professional makeup artists trade it for a nourishing oil that will relax the features and rehydrate the skin.
Apply your foundation well
There is application and application. When you put your make-up on your finger, you put between the skin and the pigments some fat particles that make the makeup move. This is especially true for the face powder. Especially when applied with a brush or sponge, it will last much longer. Finally, it is fixed with a veil of loose powder.
Fix the eye makeup
As for the complexion, we prefer brush applications. Before applying any make-up, apply a special eyelid fixing base all over the surface. It will help prepare the skin to retain the pigments and at the same time unify the complexion. It will also prevent the pigments from migrating into the small folds of the eyelid. Also note: compact powder shades hold better than free powders or creamy textures. After a certain age, we clearly move on.
To put down your lipstick
Again, the application will make the difference. For a red that holds all evening, we start by redrawing the contours of the mouth in pencil. Then we color the interior slightly. In order not to create a vulgar demarcation, we choose a pencil in the same tone as the lipstick. A first layer is applied, the excess of which is removed by biting into a tissue and applying a veil of colorless free powder. Then apply a second layer. For a glamorous effect that brings back a fixing layer, we can add a transparent gloss.
Choose waterproof products
For skins that retain poor makeup, we can turn to waterproof makeup. Formerly reserved for the summer period, we now find throughout the year. Eyeshadows, pencils for the eyes and mouth, lipstick, we find everything in waterproof version and it allows not to worry about his makeup throughout the day.
Moisten your face
One might think that by doing it one degrades one's make-up, one actually allows him to better adhere to the skin. Of course, we do not talk about splashing with water. It is rather to spray it about 30cm away with a make-up fixer or a thermal water spray. Their particles with moisturizing agents will come to the rescue of cells damaged by external aggressions that fade makeup.For a cool effect, we can repeat the operation in the day.
