How To Make Your Makeup Last Longer and Look Fresh

hey beauties !!!
Long lasting makeup is what all of us crave for, right? But if you have a combination to oily skin, it can really be a challenge. Let me tell you a fact girls, NO PRODUCT IS THE WORLD CAN STOP YOU FROM SWEATING AND MELTING MAKEUP. But yes, by using few tips, you can actually control sweat and oil and hence make your makeup last longer.


I cannot emphasis on how important toner is for our skin. Its like a double cleansing. Even after washing our face, dirt is trapped in our pores and these dirt are responsible for clogged pores resulting in excessive oil and pimples. So when we wipe our face with a toner, it gets into the pores and remove those left over dirt and makes our face clean.

Product I use: Biotique Bio Cucumber Toner


A face primer is one product which we all are guilty of skipping. But this extra step really helps our makeup stick to our skin by creating a layer between the skin and the makeup. It also makes our face smooth and helps blend the foundation properly and hence our makeup lasts longer.

TIP: Always pat on the primer on the face, instead of rubbing or massaging.  

Product I use: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and Colorbar Perfect Match Primer


After applying all the cream products, it's important to set it with a powder. We tend to use a compact which is a lot heavier and has more oils, hence our makeup looks cakey.
The solution to this is using LOOSE POWDER. Loose Powders are extremely light on the skin and controls oiliness and don't make makeup looks cakey.

TIP: Instead of using a lot of product at a time, take a small amount of product on a large powder brush and lightly dust it on your face, concentrating more on the places you tend to get oily, like your T-Zone. You can always layer on the powder if you need.

Product I use: Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder


After applying, all the makeup, the final step is to set it all by a setting spray. It holds the makeup in place and avoids makeup meltdown.

TIP: Hold the bottle at on arm distance from your face and spray it all over. Don't rub it or dab it. Let it air dry.

Product I use: Nyx Matte Finish Setting Spray

The next two product helps brighten up the tired face.

After few hours of makeup when the face starts to look a bit tired, then a Highlighter is your saviour. Highligher gives a healthy glow to the face making it look all glammed up.

TIP: Instead of using a lot of product at a time, take a small amount of product on a Fan brush and lightly apply it on the high-points of the face, i.e. the cheek bones, bridge of the nose and cupid bow You can always layer on the product for that intense glow.

Product I use: The Balm Mary-Lou-Manizer and Maybelline Master Stroke Highlighter in Molten Gold


A lipstick a day keeps gloominess away. When you are not wearing a lot of makeup, you can brighten up your look by applying a Bright Lipstick,

TIP: You can always use a Bright Pink lipstick. It can be use on a hot day or for any night time occasion.

Product I use: Nyx Soft Matte LipCream in Paris


I cannot stress on hoe important blotting sheets are. If you have combination to oily skin as me, Blotting sheets are your BFFs.

TIP: No matter where you are, the moment you start getting oily, pull out a sheet and just dab it on your oily regions, like for me my T-zone is the most oily zone.

Product I use: Clean & Clear Oil Control Film
