Attending an Event With Baby? These Beauty Products Make Sure Your Glow Stays OnNo need to worry about how you look!CREATED WITH BYS
Going out with a baby is one of the trickiest things about motherhood. Before leaving the house, your little one has to be freshly bathed, perfectly dressed, and smelling sweet. Meanwhile, all that prep will leave you with a wrinkly outfit, messy hair, and a sweaty, bare face .
It gets even trickier when there’s a social event or formal gathering you have to attend, as this requires extra primping and glamming up. The worst part is, even if you do manage to make yourself look decent, you still end up looking haggard at the end of the day, what with all the endless mommy-ing you have to do!
The good news is: While the exhaustion is inevitable, you can leave the signs of tiredness out of your face with the help of makeup that keeps you glowing from a.m. to p.m. The key is to invest in heavy-duty but easy-to-use formulas that have impressive staying power. Check out our recos here:
1. Heavy-duty concealer
You don’t need to be a makeup artist to conceal imperfections expertly; you just need a concealer with a pigmented formula that won’t budge from your skin regardless of how much you sweat.
The BYS All Day Wear Concealer (SRP: Php499) features a rich and creamy liquid that helps instantly blur visible skin flaws like dark circles and age spots, and keeps them covered up for hours. Use it to spot-correct the face before foundation application.
How to use: Apply a small amount on problem areas using the built-in wand. Use your finger or a brush to tap and blend the product gently on the skin.
2. Long-wearing foundation
The easiest way to flaunt a fresh face? Even out your base with the help of a long-lasting foundation that offers natural, buildable coverage. Choose a high-performance liquid foundation that blends seamlessly on the skin and is infused with skin-loving ingredients, such as Argan oil, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid.
The BYS All Day Wear Foundation (SRP: Php799) has nine shades to choose from—three of which are made to suit morena skin: Cool Tan, Warm Tan, and Deep Tan.
How to use: Using a foundation brush or a sponge, blend from the center of the face going outwards. Layer depending on desired coverage.
3. Mattifying pressed powder
Powder sets liquid and cream makeup in place and helps mattify the skin by absorbing excess oil. Try the BYS All Day Wear Pressed Powder (SRP: Php399). Its formula boasts of smooth-as-silk pigments that blend on the skin for a flawless, airbrushed look. It also helps moisturize the skin for a healthy-looking complexion.
How to use: Using a fluffy brush, sweep powder all over your face to set the makeup. You can also re-apply to touch up and minimize shine, especially if your face is looking greasy.
4. Lip-and-cheek tint or stain
Sporting flushed cheeks and rosy lips can instantly make you look fresh as they’re perceived as signs of good health. Tint formulas are generally straightforward to use and have better staying power than powders. They can also work as eyeshadow—just go for a sheer layer over the lids. If you’re morena, pick a warm peach or coral shade. For fairer ladies, go for a light pink color.
How to use: Apply two to three tiny dots on the apples of cheeks and blend well with your middle and pointer fingers. Swipe a thin layer on the lips and use your finger to blend as well.
5. Makeup setting spray
This spray is designed to lock in your makeup and prevent it from fading. It can even help refresh your face by delivering moisture without disturbing your makeup. Look for a lightweight formula with soothing or cooling properties.
How to use: After makeup application, hold the spray eight to ten inches away from your face and mist lightly. Wait to dry.
With the help of long-lasting makeup picks, such as the ones from the BYS All Day Wear Collection, you can now be extra confident when heading out with your baby, especially for special events!
