Products to use for long-lasting makeup

The wedding season is upon us, so you’ll be needing the perfect makeup, right? Here are our top tips for how to achieve a captivating look that lasts all day.

A flawless complexion

Before starting your makeup, hydrate and re-invigorate your skin with a serum and day cream. Then apply a makeup base with added UV protection such as the Premium UV base. This everyday cream hydrates your epidermis, and its BB pigments provide a “barefaced” smooth complexion. This step is essential for long-lasting makeup.

Next, even out your skin tone with a foundation that matches your skin type and the coverage you’re after. For a natural and light finish, Color Clone is ideal. If you are looking for more coverage, opt for Spectacular. When applying your foundation, don’t forget your neck and décolletage. To fix your makeup in place, finish with the Color Clone pressed powder.

To stay matte all day, slip a few tissues into your bag and apply to your T-zone from time to time. This small but important gesture will keep the shine away from your nose, forehead and chin.

Elegant makeup

Ensure that your eye makeup will stay in place too by applying eyeliner under your eye shadow. A classic crayon will enable you to create subtle shading before you add your chosen eye shadow over your eyelids. Emphasize your eyes with the Lash Queen Mystic Blacks for a defined lash line.

For your lips, go for a lipstick in your preferred color from the Wanted Rouge collection, which has 17 shades to choose from. Opt for one that will complement your skin and outfit. To avoid regular re-applications, hydrate your lips first.

Whatever the occasion, it is important to know the basics for long-lasting makeup. Follow these simple tips so that you can step away from the mirror and enjoy the day without any makeup slips-ups!
