How to get your makeup to last all day part 1

*Affiliate links.

Makeup is like magic to me. The right makeup products have the power to transform everyone. Which is why I like to pay special attention to my makeup products. I am lucky to get opportunities to review many products each month. Some products are better than others, and I always make sure I get the amazing products again once I run out.

I have had the privilege to use all sorts of makeup and I know the importance of using the right makeup. Many of us want our makeup to stay put all day. I remember growing up, that was one of the issues I had. I would apply makeup before leaving the house, and it would be wiped off within a few hours. So I know all about how frustrating it can be when your makeup seems to just vanish off your face.

How to get your makeup to last all day

So how do you get your makeup to last all day? Here are some tips that you may find useful –

 

Care for the skin underneath

Having a good skincare routine is the first step to helping your makeup stay on for longer. You should ensure you are using the right skincare products. Ensure you use the right cleansers, makeup remover, moisturisers and face creams. I like to spoil myself with a face mask every week. It does wonders for my skin. For moisturisers, I currently use Bio Oil and No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Day Cream SPF 15 50ml.

Also, make sure you take your makeup off before you go to sleep and treat your skin right from within by eating and drinking right. Once your skin is smooth and supple, your makeup tends to stay on for longer.  I currently use AVON True Nutra Effects Gentle Bi-Phase Eye Make-up Remover, and it wipes every trace of my makeup off. 

 

Use a primer first

Now this is a very important tip. You should apply a primer first before you apply your foundation. I always use a primer first if I know I am going to be out all day and I need my makeup staying on.

I currently use Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer and it is so amazing. It keeps my makeup on for more than 12 hours.

Quality Foundation and Concealer

I like to spend a bit more when it comes to my foundation and concealer because I believe the more I spend, the better the quality. I have all sorts of foundation and concealer products in my makeup storage box, but I always recommend Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place FoundationIt is super long lasting, stays on all day. This foundation is definitely number 1 in the makeup market.

When it comes to concealers, I prefer MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. It conceals all that needs concealing and it stays on all day. Love it.

Face Powder that works

Once my primer, foundation and concealer (in that order) have been applied and blended in, the next stage is applying the face powder. I go for quality here as well, and I like my MAC. The Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation by MAC works great for me. It stays on all day and I hardly ever need to top up except for my t section.

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In Place Powder Makeup SPF10 is another favourite of mine. It works great with the foundation and leaves my face looking stunning all day. It just glides on and stays on.

I will be writing a follow up with recommending more great makeup products –  eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, eye liners and more. So look out for that post in the next few days.

Product Review – Avon Cleansers

I have recently started using Avon products, and I must confess liking them. Today, I bring to you an Avon Cleansers review post. I have been using Avon True Nutra effects Micellar Cleansing Water and Anew Clean Anti Ageing 3 in 1 Cleansing Water, and I have a bit to say about these products.

 

Avon True Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water £4

It was my first time using a Micellar Cleansing Water Product and I was well impressed. Avon True Nutra Effect Micellar Cleansing Water promises to gently and effectively remove make-up on all skin types. Here are my thoughts on the product.

 

PROS
  1. It is super affordable at £4 for a 200ml bottle.
  2. I love the simple packaging.
  3. This product is very easy to use with some cotton wool. A little goes a long way.
  4. It works for all skin types, and all over the face.
  5. This Micellar Cleansing Water is formulated with Active Seed Complex featuring vitamin E and chia seed extract. It is also formulated with micelles that act like magnets to remove make-up and impurities without drying skin.
  6. It gently and thoroughly removes makeup and all impurities.

 

CONS

None

 

Anew Anti-Ageing 3-in-1 Cleansing Water £6.50

Anew Anti-Aging 3-in-1 Cleansing Water promises to gently cleanse entire face and neck to clear the skin of dirt, oil and impurities. Here are my thoughts on this Cleansing Water.

 

PROS
  1. There is no need to rinse, which is convenient.
  2. This Cleansing Water has Isotonic Water Complex to attract and maintain moisture within the skin.
  3. It is great for all skin types.
  4. I like the price tag of £6.50 for a 200ml bottle.
  5. Good to have a 3-in-1 product.

 

CONS
  1. I don’t like the sticky texture of my skin after using this cleansing water. I always feel like I need to rinse my face.

Overall, both Avon products are great. I love the Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water a lot. It is an amazing makeup remover product and I will buy it over and over again.

The Anew Anti-Aging Cleansing Water is also a good product but I won’t be buying it again because I don’t like the way my skin feels after using it. The Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water suits my skin better.

What do you think of these Avon products? Have you tried any before? Which Cleansing product do you swear by?
