Tips for long lasting foundation?

By the end of the day, my foundation ends up looking blotchy/patchy - it looks bad.


I use the milk primer, ABH foundation and UD setting spray. I also have terribly dry skin but use my serums & moisturizer from The Ordinary daily/before makeup.


Any tips or suggestions on how to stop this problem or why it’s happening? 

Re: Tips for long lasting foundation?

No setting spray has worked for me before Charlotte Tilbury’s setting spray! I also find that if you spray your beauty blender until it’s wet and then dab your makeup in after you apply powder it helps so much!

@aliciaaeye @Do you set your foundation with a powder?  It could also be your foundation or primer isn’t compatible with your skin type.

Yes, with the RCMA translucent powder.

The ABH foundation was suggested for dry skin by someone at ulta…but maybe I need to test something more hydrating.
