We hear you, ladies; getting your wedding makeup just right at 8 am only to experience a ‘beauty landslide’ by midday is frustrating, to say the least. However, with the right products and a little technique, this common beauty woe can be easily avoided. Consider your ‘face’ firmly in place with our How-To guide.
It’s no wonder makeup artists swear by makeup primer. Instead of letting your carefully applied look sink into or slide off your face, a makeup primer like La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer, acts as a second skin for your cosmetics to cling onto for up to 10 hours. The oil-free formula also helps to fill in fine lines and nourish your visage at the same time.
Did you know that blending your makeup not only helps avoid cringe-worthy tide lines, it also bonds it to your skin for longer-lasting effect? Just use your fingers to blend around the chin and down your neck. While you may be time poor in the morning rush, it’ll save you reapplying later.
If it’s longevity you’re after, add a cheek tint to your beauty regime. While powder and cream blush are both hardworking color-providers, a gel-based tint temporarily stains your skin (read temporarily), moving for no one but your remover. Try ETUDE HOUSE Dear Darling Water Tint for a double whammy of staying power.
If your lipstick goes walkabout almost instantly, try using a no-budge formula like this Matte Liquid Lipstick set Waterproof Long Lasting. With fewer emollients than high-sheen lipsticks, it stays put for so long you’ll forget you’re wearing it.
Ready, set, go
Now it’s time to seal the deal with a makeup setting spray. Makeup Setting Spray with Organic Green Tea locks in your makeup without disturbing it, using a clear (yet ever so slightly luminous) formula to seal and protect your beauty. It’s the Holy Grail for special events and just as impressive when you’ve got a long day ahead. Consider your beauty budge-proof!
