If you're wanting your makeup to last through the day, it's all about the primer. I recommend the Smashbox Photo Finish Original primer. Remember to moisturize, prime, THEN apply makeup. Also, if you're using a liquid foundation, it's best to apply it with a foundation brush in order to get the best application AND save on product.


Pressed powders can be applied on top of foundation (for added coverage) or used alone for color. But if you're looking for a sheer setting powder (setting powders are usually colorless) the Make Up For Ever HD Setting Powder is great. Also, any of the Mineral Veils from Bare Escentuals will work well.


Finally, check out Urban Decay's "All-Nighter" make up setting spray. I use this before I go out and it helps to keep me looking flawless even in those horridly humid night clubs!
