How to Make Your Makeup Last Longer


How to Make Your Makeup Last Longer

One area of the blog I really would love to tap deeper into this year is beauty. Considering we are already in March, it's about time I start doing so! Since moving to NYC two months ago, I have been on the go like crazy and have figured out which beauty products are really for longer wear. I wanted to share a few of my favorite beauty products that are essential to my everyday makeup routine, as well as give you some tips on how to make your makeup last longer.



  1. Always start with a clean face, morning or night, because your skin produces natural oils throughout the night and during the day.

  2. I prep my skin with a facial spray like Mario Badescu or Herbivore's Rose Spray and then use SPF (unless your makeup has sunscreen in it).

  3. Make sure you moisturize under your eyes so that your concealer doesn't look dry and crusty (LOL).

  4. Use a Beauty Blender to apply your foundation and any liquid makeup since it really helps the makeup seep into your pores and does not just apply it on top. A makeup sponge also gives really nice, even coverage.

  5. Once you have completed your makeup, use your facial spray or a setting spray to really lock it all in. This also give you a dewy look which I love.

  6. Always do your mascara after the setting spray/final spray so your eyelashes do not get weighed down.

  7. You can use powder and facial spray throughout the day to make it last!
