How to get your makeup to last all day part 2

*Affiliate Links.

 

Some weeks ago, I wrote a how to get your makeup to last all day. I couldn’t fit in all the products I wanted to into that post, so I decided to write-up a part 2. In the previous post, I mentioned how important it is to use quality makeup products in the right order. We covered Primer, Foundation, Concealer and Face Powder (in that order) so go have a read to find the beauty products I recommended.

Now we are going to talk about some other amazing products that would help your makeup last all day long –

 

Eyebrow Shake Filling Powder

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for years, you may have read the rise and fall of the eyebrow. It covers the many eras of the eyebrows and how making them up has changed. You may even find your eyebrows on there. I use the Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder. It works great for my eyebrows. They come in various shades – soft black, medium brown, light brown and dark brown.

This 3 in 1 eyebrow makeup fill, defines and lines the eyebrows. I never have to top my brows up when I apply this powder.

 

 

Eyeliner

When it comes to eyeliners, I recommend the Duo Kajal + Eyeliner by Lola. I love the fact that it is a 2 in 1 product. The Kajal lines the eyes beautifully and the eyeliner works great too! It stays on for ages which is amazing. No need for top ups at all.

 

 

Mascara

I love paying attention to the mascaras I use. Since I have naturally long lashes and I love enhancing them with a great mascara. I love the Rimmel London New Volume Shake Mascara a lot. It gives my eyelashes the right volume from root to tip. I use it quite regularly and it stays on all day. Plus it is also waterproof.

The Rimmel London Scandaleyes is another great mascara too! It lasts and lasts thanks to the shake technology and it stays on for hours too! If you are after quality and affordable mascaras, you need to check out these 2.

 

 

Eyeshadow

Eyeshadows are a must for me when it comes to makeup. I have loads but will recommend this Sleek Eyeshadow Palette. There are a few of them in my makeup drawers and they are really long-lasting with pretty different shades. They stay on all day. I usually have to wipe them off with my makeup remover. The palettes are also very affordable which is a plus.

 

 

Lip Primer

In other for your lipstick to stay put, you need to apply a Lip Primer before your lipstick. I use MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and I have done so for many years.  It does exactly what it says on the pack. It prepares my lips and keeps my lipstick on all day.

 

 

Lipsticks

I love having various shades of lipsticks because the shade I put on depends on my mood. There are so many lipsticks in my makeup drawers thanks to PR samples. Most of them are really good but I will recommend MAC Ruby Woo for those who like the bold red matte look. It is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. I never get tired of wearing it.

 

Lip Pencils

Lip Pencils are important when it comes to making sure your makeup stays on all day. I love my  MAC Lip Pencil. It looks amazing with most of my lipsticks and it lines my lips beautifully.

 

Highlighter

 

I am kind of new to Highlighters. I started experimenting with them a few years ago and I am now hooked on the Sleek Highlighting Palette. It is so good. This palette suits all skin tones. The brand does not test on animals and the shades are beautiful.

 

Finishing Spray

There are a couple of Finishing Sprays in the beauty industry. I have used many of them and most are great. One of them is this Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Go. It is a 2 in 1 product – Primer and Setting Spray. It keeps the makeup in place for up to 8 hours.

 

These makeup products are all amazing. They help my makeup stay on for as long as I need it too and they are all quite affordable. Have you used any of them?

Product Review: MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

I am a MAC Cosmetics lover, as you should all know by now, so this review should come as no surprise. I have been using the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation for a couple of years on and off, and I can see myself using it for a very long time. This product is a foundation and powder in one, designed to be used dry. It creates a matte, velvety finish by absorbing the skin oils.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is a one-step powder and foundation that gives your skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium-to-full coverage. Its long-wearing, velvety texture allows your skin to breathe. Studio Fix is available in a wide range of colors.

How to use: Apply to skin using a sponge or your desired brush, and blend. You can also blend with your fingertips.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS
  1. It provides great medium-full coverage, leaving my face feeling and looking smooth/flawless, hiding all skin discoloration, and blemishes.
  2. It stays on for hours, very long-lasting, and because I barely need to top-up so often, I usually have mine for a while.
  3. There are over 40 shades available so there is a shade for every one. I got mine in NW45, and it suits my skin tone perfectly.
  4. It is very affordable at £22.
  5. It is easily accessible. You can grab one in stores at Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis, and online as well.

CONS
  1. Although it is a powder and foundation in one, I find that most of the time, I still need to apply a bit of the MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation or a tinted mosituriser, before applying the Studio Fix, depending on the look I am looking to achieve.

Overall, I love the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, and I recommend it to anyone looking for the convenience of having a powder and foundation in one. It is a fantastic product, worth every penny, and I will be buying it again and again. You can watch my vlog here below.

Product Review: MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

I am a MAC girl. The brand is so amazing. I adore most of their beauty products. They are one of the best in the market today, and I enjoy using them. So today, I bring to you the MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation review, I am loving at the moment:

MAC Foundation Image

Now I have two different shades of the MAC Matchmaster foundation because the sales girl sold me the whole shade at first. Some of these makeup salesgirls are indeed clueless when it comes to makeup for the dark skin. Many of them still think all black women should use the darkest shade available, so if you are a coloured girl, keep your eyes wide open when testing makeup products, so you don’t end up with the wrong shade like I did.

Anyways, back to my story, so I was sold the wrong shade at the first, which is the foundation on the left and below – MAC Matchmaster SPF Foundation 9.0.

It was way too dark on my face, so I went in search of another shade, and decided to settle for the MAC Matchmaster SPF in 7.0. Looking at it, I think the perfect shade for me is the shade in between these two, which should be the 8.0, but I wanted to still make use of the wrong shade I bought already, so I mix both foundations together to get the right shade, and that has worked fine so far. I use the dark foundation – 9.0,  to contour as well.

Here is the 7.0 shade below:

MAC Foundation 7C

I was applying both shades on here.
