N!!! PLEASE HELP?!!!
I'm a highschool teenager and i apply foundation and powder to school. but i started to notice that my makeup starts to wear off throughout the day...how do i prevent my makeup from wearing off? any product suggestions?
I'm agreeing with the other posters that it sounds like you need a good primer underneath. Laura Mercier makes some excellent ones. She has an oil free version, hydrating for drier skins, and a mineral primer that is made to go underneath powder foundations (although any of them can). Try her mineral primer (it dries to a powder finish) and see if that helps.
First off, since you are a teenager you should wear too much makeup. I think you should just stick to powder foundation and wear a primer underneath.
I suggest a Make Up For Ever primer; it goes on very smooth.
I know how it feels to take the time to apply foundation and concealer, only to have it wear off throughout the day! I SWEAR by Skindinavia's Makeup setting spray. http://www.skindinavia.com/
I spray this twice before I apply my foundation (this really helps keep the products in place, but does not leave a thick or sticky residue AT ALL) and twice after I apply my makeup, which helps blur any "cakey-ness" and leaves you with a flawless finish. This makeup setting spray is seriously AMAZING. You can easily find many reviews on it on Youtube. There's an original formula (I have that one), an oil-control formula, along with a few other formulas.
Hope this helped!
Hi! I definitely second the idea that a makeup primer would help keep your foundation on all day. I don't know what your skin type is, but as long as it's not super oily or super dry, Make Up For Ever makes a great primer that comes in different shades, so you can choose the shade that best suits your needs. (I use this every day in Blue):
If you have really oily skin, this is a great oil controlling primer by the same brand:
Hope this helps!
