Whether due to sun exposure, pollution, or subconsciously touching our faces, there are many reasons why our makeup can wear down throughout the day. However, by investing in the right products, you can ensure that your look stays fresh no matter what time it is!
Want to learn how to nail a look that lasts through after-work events, late nights, and unpredictable schedules? Read on for the 6 skin-sensitive, non-comedogenic products you’ll need to perfect this simple day-to-night look.
Set your makeup up for success by using this skin-smoothening, skin-enhancing primer. By blurring your skin’s pores and fine lines, this primer creates the perfect base for makeup application and helps the products stay in place longer. To apply it, , take a pea-sized amount onto the face using clean fingers, a brush, or a beauty sponge. Spread evenly all over the face until the product is fully absorbed. You can do this after you apply moisturizer.
Next, create a perfect, poreless base with the Loose Mineral Foundation! With SPF16, not only does it deliver velvety-smooth full coverage, but it also protects the skin from harmful UV rays—a must for daily commutes.
Once you've allowed the primer to settle, apply a small amount of the foundation by buffing it onto your skin with a brush or patting it on with a damp beauty sponge. Mist over your freshly-applied foundation using the skin-loving Flower Power Setting Spray to keep it in place; in around 1-2 hours, it will settle into a natural, dewy finish.
For brows that won’t budge, try the Life-Proof Eyebrow Gel. With its sweat-proof, waterproof, and smudge-proof formulation, this brow gel will keep even the unruliest brows in place.
Using the Life-Proof Dual End Brow Brush, dip the angled brow brush into the product and wipe off any excess onto the cap. Fill in your eyebrows using light, hair-like strokes, concentrating on areas where your brows need more hold. Then blend in the pigment with the spoolie brush.
As the name suggests, this cream can be used for a variety of things. Pack it onto the lid as an eyeshadow, swipe it on the cheeks as a contour or blush, and tap it onto the lips as a lip stain. For this look, take the dewy copper shade “Glee” and pat it onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend the cream diagonally up the cheekbone. Pop some onto the lips for a perfect shade match!
For this look, create a beautiful glowing finish by using these pigments as an eyeshadow, contour product, and highlighter.
Dip a contour shade into the shade “Brilliance,” tap out the excess, and lightly blend onto the hollows of the cheeks and the perimeters of the face to add natural definition. Then, to create a gorgeous bronze-y lid, pack the same pigment onto the lid using a dense packing brush. Build a fuller, more radiant color payoff by spritzing setting spray onto the brush first before applying to the lid.
Then, take the creamy golden shade “Sensational” onto a fan brush and lightly sweep it onto the highest points of the face (cheekbones, nose bridge, brow bone, chin, and cupid’s bow) for accentuation. Take a small amount onto your pinky finger to add sparkle to your inner corners as well.
Finally, lock in your look using the skin-loving Flower Power Setting Spray. This crowd favorite ensures your hard work stays put throughout the day without caking or fading, and helps keep your skin hydrated without being greasy. Toss it into your bag and spritz it on throughout the day, as it doubles as a soothing facial mist as well!
