Our secrets for makeup that lasts all day

It's back to school, time to return to the office in style. To resume, you dream of fresh and luminous makeup, but above all, makeup that lasts all day! And yes, after a whole day at work, between meetings and going to the gym between noon and two, it's hard to end the day with makeup still intact. Here are Veld's secrets for makeup that lasts all day!

Clear, clean skin for makeup that lasts

Have clear and clean skin is the first step to long-lasting makeup. Indeed, if the skin has excess sebum, impurities, or dead cells even before applying your makeup, it will not last.

Cleanse your skin morning and evening , with a gentle make-up remover and a cleanser adapted to your skin type. To get smooth, clear skin, exfoliate your skin once or twice a week is essential. With a healthy and clean base, your makeup will only look prettier, and above all, it will last all day.

Hydrate the skin without excess

Moisturize your skin daily is the guarantee of healthy, soft, supple and firm skin. In the morning, choose a light moisturizer, so as not to grease the face. In the evening, opt for a deep hydration cream to regenerate your skin.

Be careful not to confuse moisturizing cream, which brings water to the skin, and nourishing cream, which brings lipids to the skin. Dry-prone skin may need a nourishing cream daily, but for normal to combination skin, a moisturizer is sufficient. Once your skin is hydrated, it is in good condition to receive makeup.

If your skin tends to be oily, you can use a makeup primer after moisturizing, and before applying makeup. It will help the foundation to set better on the skin.

Making your foundation stick:instructions for use

Making your foundation stick is surely the most difficult task when the day promises to be busy. First of all, you have to choose the right foundation . We now find it in cream, mousse, liquid, powder, and not all textures are suitable for all skin types. Cream and mousse formulas are more suitable for dry skin, powder formulas for combination to oily skin, and liquid foundations for all types.

Do not hesitate to test several products, to look at the composition, to find what suits you best. As far as possible, prefer non-comedogenic foundations , to avoid blackheads and imperfections.

For an even finish, apply your foundation with a beauty blender or a brush, stretching the material. Once your foundation has been applied, there are two options for fixing the material:a veil of mineral powder, or a veil of fixing spray. These can be found in all makeup stores.

If, despite everything, you need small touch-ups to make your foundation last until the evening, you can slip a small palette of powder or a concealer into your bag for localized touch-ups. Finally, if your skin tends to be greasy, avoid adding material. Prefer matifying or absorbent papers to eliminate shiny areas that appear throughout the day.

Eye makeup that lasts in all circumstances

Eye makeup that lasts all day is often a simple make-up. The more material you add, the more it will tend to wander elsewhere on your face. We therefore avoid glitter powders, kohl pencils that are too greasy, or even thick layers of mascara that crumble over the course of the day.

To make up your eyes, use a cream eyeshadow to dress the eyelid, or apply a waterproof eyeliner . Today, there are liquid eyeliners that last for long hours without moving, with a wide choice of colors, glitter or matte. Choose bright colors that match your complexion to illuminate your eyes. Then, apply your mascara with a light hand:no more than two coats, applying the material in a zig-zag pattern to avoid clumps. Choose a waterproof mascara , sweat proof.

If you make up your eyebrows, start well by brushing them to remove any impurities and have a better hold. You can use pencil or blush, but eyebrow mascaras tend to last longer, and they keep the eyebrow "in place".
