When faced with the daily stresses of life, worrying about your makeup staying put through your hectic schedule is the last thing you need. While it might seem like an impossible feat, if you prep with a purpose and add the right products to your beauty routine, enjoying flawless makeup that lasts well throughout the day and even into the evening is possible. Here are a few tips that can help:
It Starts with Your Skin
Having makeup that lasts all day starts with prepping your skin and creating a healthy base to build from. You essentially want a canvas for your makeup, and clean, happy, healthy skin is an ideal place to start. Not all foundations and CC creams are created the same, with many only covering the problems rather than helping your skin. Choose one that not only covers blemishes and helps even out your skin tone, but that also contains nourishing ingredients like flaxseed extract and vitamin C. Among the top vegan makeup brands, Thrive Causemetics offers a Buildable Blur CC Cream™ broad spectrum SPF 35 that perfectly diffuses any skin imperfections all while providing nourishing benefits to keep your skin healthy and pure.
Don’t Sweat It
If you live in a hot or humid climate, you're more than familiar with the havoc even the tiniest beads of sweat can wreak on your makeup. You work hard and put in a lot of effort to make sure that your makeup looks stunning every morning, so you shouldn't allow a little sweat to dial down your look. Sweat proof makeup is the perfect solution to keep your look cool, calm, and collected even during long, busy days. You can find a variety of your favorite makeup essentials in a sweat-proof variant including eyeliner and brow liner.
Lock in the Look
After all of your hard work creating the perfect look for the day, you don't want to let it go to waste or have to run to the mirror every five minutes for a touch-up. With setting powder, you essentially lock in your makeup while also reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines. That dreaded, oily shine? You can forget about that too as the setting powder will leave a matte finish to provide an airbrushed look.
Don’t Touch It
You probably remember your mother telling you to stop touching your face while growing up. Well, like they say, “Mom's always right." Throughout the day, you're going to touch doorknobs, your keyboard, your phone, food—you name it. But oils, dirt, and germs look to hang out on many of these surfaces, so when you touch your face, you're only transferring them there. Also, when you touch your face, you run the risk of smudging your makeup, necessitating a touch-up. So, keep your hands to yourself and away from your face, and relax—you look great.
