Finding a makeup kit that lasts as long as you would normally like it too is quite a mission, especially if it is a half decent brand that delivers what it promises. But at the same time most makeup brands have surpassed the problem of make up not staying on your face due to a little water or movement. Gone are the days when you had to worry about the make up not staying for a whole day.
For working women, it can be that you have to go to an event or dinner right after work and do not have time to go home, change and put on a fresh layer of makeup. It can be quite a hassle to keep the same look you were going for in the morning last all the way into the evening. So being able to salvage whatever is left of your makeup in the evening by applying a second coat does not seem like a great idea for those who have gone this way and ended up like a broken Picasso painting.
So what do you do? Well, here are a few easy steps you can take if you would like to take your A.M makeup to the P.M as well.
Using a cleanser or exfoliating scrub twice a week, keeps your face from breaking out and removes the dead skin and cells to make the skin look clear and rejuvenated. A lot of custom makeup boxes and lipstick boxes also recommend that you exfoliate or atleast clean your skin before applying makeup.
It definitely keeps your skin healthy, and it also provides a more agreeable “canvas” for your makeup products to cover. Consider this: if you’re sitting down to write or draw something and you place your piece of paper on an uneven surface, what will happen? Bumpy lines, an irregular format, and a lot of darker pencil or brush strokes and debris will be all over your paper.
This is a great analogy if you take your face as this canvas. And we are all not exactly perfect. We all have birthmarks, moles and blemishes that we do not need to hide with makeup or anything and just own the look. But cleanliness can never be a bad act to go for.
Take time out of your busy day to keep your skin soft and supple. A lot of us complain about having an uneven foundation and it breaking up in no time. Well, here’s your solution, moisturize. This usually happens because we do not take enough time to take care of our skin and apply endless makeup on dead or dirty skin. The result is an uneven color that looks worse than before.
Once you start taking care of your skin beneath the makeup, it’s all going to be a game-changer for you.
Rest assured, all these influencers and models that you think look so perfect in their photo shoots and “random” pictures, these people have their own imperfections, wrinkles, and whatnot that they hide from the camera to appear “perfect”. So you do you and go out there looking confident!
