5 Simple Tips to Avoid Having to Keep Retouching Your Makeup
  • Do you find yourself looking in the mirror late in the afternoon, and wondering how the morning’s attempts at grooming and prettifying are all but gone?

    In place of the morning’s fresh face and bright lippie are dull skin and pale lips: Your foundation has been rubbed off, your lipstick patchy, and your blush faded on your sweaty cheeks.

    Take note of these easy-to-follow tips to keep looking fresh and pretty throughout the day—no matter how busy your schedule is:

    1. Choose a foundation that matches your skin type.

    A creamy face base will slide off on oily skin, while an oil-absorbing powder foundation will flake on dry skin. Picking the proper foundation type will ensure the product sticks to your skin and keeps you looking bright and even the whole day. But if your skin is behaving unpredictably given your erratic schedule, try one that works with different skin types like Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Filter Foundation. It works with your skin type to help even out and smoothen your skin for a flawless finish that lasts. It comes with its own blender, too, so application is a breeze.

    2. Set your face with powder or a setting spray.

    Depending on your preference, you can use a powder for a matte finish or a setting spray for a more dewy finish. Sealing in your base with a top layer will keep it in place the whole day and keep you looking fresh.

    3. Go for long-lasting lipstick.

    You can’t keep yourself from kissing your baby’s chubby cheeks and thighs throughout the day, but you certainly don’t want your lipstick transferring to her skin and clothes. A lipstick like Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor offers up to 16 hours of comfortable and pretty lips with its long-wearing formula. It comes in various shades, too.

    4. Try a cheek stain instead of a powder blush.

    If you’re looking to add some color to your face, a cheek stain wins over a powder blusher. The results also look a lot more natural

    5. Blot, don’t wipe.

    If you’re feeling oily or you feel perspiration on your face, blot off with tissue instead of wiping it off. When you wipe, you’re taking out the oil and sweat all right, but you’re also including all the makeup on your face.
