Tips To Keeping Your Makeup Fresh All Day

Hi there! As you know, I'm a makeup artist. My job often requires long days of photoshoots or events. This means, the looks I create for my clients need to be able to last A LONG TIME with only minor touchups throughout the day. Many of my clients and friends have asked me how they can make their makeup looks last all day without having to re-do the entire look. Well, here are a few of my secrets for keeping your makeup fresh all day!

How to keep it fresh:

  • Start with a good moisturizer so your makeup doesn't look dry half way through the day. Some of my favorites are linked below!

  • Use a great primer such as the Laura Mercier hydrating primer or the Smashbox primer below.

  • Layer different textures. For example, try using a cream foundation with a powder blush. Different textures blend better together.

  • Throughout the day, do small touch ups. Re-curling your lashes and touching up you lip color will improve your look half way through the day.

  • A great tool for small touchups is a wet q-tip or these portable makeup remover q-tips for cleaning up fallout under the eyes.

  • A beauty elixir is great as well. This Caudalie beauty elixir is full of natural oils that make your face feel fresh and restored.

  • If all else fails, hire a makeup artist to follow your around. LOL!
