Your Guide to Flawless Coverage
It’s the eternal question, and we’ve got the answer: how to make makeup last all day.
As always, it starts with your skin.
If you’re planning to apply makeup after your skincare, be mindful not to use a moisturiser that’s too thick, heavy or oily. Although these skincare products are great, it’s best to leave these to the evening or makeup free days.
To ensure that your makeup has the best base possible, use a serum or essence followed by a lightweight moisturiser or lotion and eye cream.
To really make sure that makeup applies evenly and lasts, we recommend giving yourself a minimum of ten minutes after you’ve applied the last of your skincare to let the products settle and absorb into the skin, leaving the perfect blank canvas for your makeup. While you’re waiting, why not practice mindfulness and take ten minutes to prepare for the day ahead? Or, if something caffeinated is on your agenda first thing, now is the perfect time to make a drink.
