Why Your Makeup Fades Away And How To Fix It!

  • It’s not exactly easy to keep your makeup fresh all day, but it isn’t impossible either.

  • The most important tricks to achieving a flawless face are related to foundation and its proper setting which includes primer, translucent powder and setting spray.

  • An adequate skincare routine is mandatory to achieve the most perfect finishes as the makeup will just not stay put if its foundation is shaky and your skin is not correctly prepped up.

So you’re all glammed up for the night, the makeup looks flawless and you’re feeling confident. The evening brings about small talk, gossips, buffets, and dancing. Phew! What a night! You decide to take a small the restroom break to gather yourself amidst the evening. You take a glance at yourself in the mirror and uh oh! What’s this! Why does your face makeup suddenly look so dull?!
I’m sure there’s many out there who have faced the age-old menace of faded makeup after a couple of hours of wear. Luckily we have some great tips and tricks from some of the best makeup artists out there. Just follow these tricks and keep your makeup fresh all day!

ALWAYS use Primer!

There are no words enough o stress over this point. It’s ABSOLUTELY crucial! It’s a sticky base for your foundation to adhere to. It not only locks in your skin’s moisture but also evens out the surface so that the makeup application is smooth and flawless. And as it stops your makeup from sliding off of your skin, it also helps keep the products on longer and in the original freshness, you would want it to.


A Mist of Freshness

Setting sprays are something that all of our makeup artists have sworn by! They’re easy to apply; just spritz some on your face at the end of the makeup routine and voila! Your makeup is locked in. It usually contains PVP (polyvinylpyrrolidone) which tightens your skin and stops the makeup from melting or smearing off of your face.

Translucent powder for everyone

One of the key tricks that people often miss is the use of translucent powder to set foundation. It can be used for all types of skin and is versatile for all skin tones as well. It sets your makeup by keeping the foundation locked in and fresh even with a light layer of application with a fluffy brush all over the face.

The Correct Foundation Shade AND FORMULA

All makeup artists have given their consensus that if you don’t choose your foundation according to your skin type, it’s bound to fall apart.
If your skin is oily and you opt for a dewy foundation, it’s going to slide right off after a while due to skin oils. And if you’re a dry skin gal, a matte foundation will just worsen the dry patches on your skin. It’s important to achieve the correct balance between the skin’s natural moisture and the finish of the foundation you want to use.

There’s waterproof makeup too?!

Not many are aware of the availability of waterproof makeup formulas. But then again not everyone is suffering from hot and humid weather conditions. So one of the best tricks is to bust out the waterproof formulas if your day is going to be sweaty! Trust me, its worth it.


Skincare is necessary

Every skin type will have its own appropriate skincare as there are no definitive rules as to what techniques and products suit your skin. A mandatory addition to your routine is that of exfoliation that removes all of the dead cells. Different types of masks can be used which include clay, charcoal or mud masks. There are now special charcoal masks to clean your skin from any impurities. Charcoal masks for blackhead removal are also available. The other most important thing is hydration; even for the oily skin types. Do not confuse skin oil with hydration as hydration is necessary for everyone as its what the dermatologist says and also what makeup artists recommend. In case of doubt, you should consult your dermatologist for the appropriate suggestions and products for your skin type and conditions.

Enninful pays attention to Meghan. He was writing about Meghan charity work, an editor’s note. He said that she has bears all symbols of an activist. And she is addressing the modernizing manners slowly, through which she approached her small roles.

He wrote that we will see her selection from the September issue, now she is also willing to move more complex areas. Anyhow they are concerned with controversial issues female empowerment, race, mental health campaigner or privilege.
