We all want our carefully applied makeup to stay on for as long as possible. Just imagine if Cara Delevingne or Jourdan Dunn’s foundation slipped off half way through a show - this is definitely a beauty blunder we all want to avoid. Follow these tips if you want to know how to apply foundation for the best, most long lasting result.
1. Skin care - Our first tip for how to apply foundation so that it lasts longer is all about skin care products that work. We cannot stress enough how important a good skin care routine is with skin care products that work for your skin type. Stick to a good makeup remover and use a cleanser, toner and moisturiser every morning and night. Throw in an exfoliating face scrub once a week too for smoother skin as that means a better chance of that foundation staying put.
2. Primer - Our second tip is to get yourself a primer as it really is a must have product for your makeup bag. The best facial primers make foundation easier to put on and make them stay there too. Try the Smashbox Classic Photo Finish Foundation Primer, one of the best facial primers for oily, acne prone or sensitive skin.
3. Picking a foundation - The best foundation to buy is without doubt the foundation that suits your skin type. There is no point getting the most popular foundation on the market that moisturises dry skin if you have oily skin, this foundation will slip right off. We think that the best foundation to buy for dry skin is the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Foundation, as it nourishes the skin whilst giving it coverage. If you have oily skin, we think the best foundation to buy is the Clarins Ever Matte Foundation.
4. Applying a foundation - If you want to know tips for how to apply foundation for the best results, you should blend your foundation a lot and build extra layers for more coverage. Using powder and a makeup setting spray will make a difference to its staying power too, and remember not to touch your face too much in the day!
