Tricks to Getting a Flawless Face That Will Last All Night

Budgeproof Makeup for Formal Events
Be it a wedding, a party, or even a girl’s night out, when it comes to that special occasion you will want a makeup application that goes the distance. With these budgeproof beauty tips, touch-ups will be a thing of the past.

Take Your Time

You always take out what you put in, and this is especially the case with long-lasting beauty applications. If you want a look that will last for hours, make sure you allot yourself at least a half hour to properly prime, apply, and set your makeup. To rush will not only make you more prone to mistakes, but might also leave you forgetting a most important step.

Prime, Prime, Prime

In today’s beauty market, there is no small shortage of priming options available. The trick to finding the perfect primer for you is to first pinpoint your skin type, and then go for a formulation specifically designed to work for you. Whether you are oily or dry, a little too red or a bit sallow, there is a face primer that will counteract your skin’s shortcomings, and leave you with radiant, plump, even skin on which to apply your foundation and other color products of choice. Even better, there are primers to eyes, lips, and lashes, too, to ensure that each and every aspect of your makeup is primed and ready for color.

When choosing the makeup that you wish to apply, it helps to look for the words budge-proof, smudge-proof, creaseless, and long wearing. As a general rule, dryer formulations will wear much longer than wet ones, with mattes lasting longer than shines, and powder longer than liquid. The more emollient, the shorter the wear time on a product will be. However, if you insist on using a creamy product, it can easily be prepped for long wear by setting it with a finishing powder or powder. This leads us to our last point.

Set it, and forget it

The last step to any long lasting makeup application, the setting powder or spray will not only provide you with a perfect finish, but will also act as a barrier between your meticulously applied makeup and the outside world. The beauty of the setting product is that it will also absorb extra shine, so feel free to take it along with you, to touch up during your big night out.

No matter the situation, and no matter the time or place, with these budge-proof makeup tips, your look will last as long as you want it to.
