These Tricks Will Make Your Foundation Last

There’s nothing that bothers us more than slip and slide foundation. You know, when your foundation application has already gone rogue come 10am, making a wayward decision to head everywhere but your face? We have some tips and advise for achieving a flawless, stay-all-day foundation.

Keep scrolling for my approved tricks to make your foundation last all day.

#1: Mix Your Foundation and Setting Spray

Mix a little setting spray with your foundation before putting it on and your foundation won’t budge.

#2: Shave Your Face

A splash of refreshing rose water can work wonders. Plus, it’s emimhatstat’s “godsent” cure to ensure a stay-all-day finish.

#3: Prime Your Face With Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (£12.00)

Spraying setting spray BEFORE foundation. My foundation holds better, there’s a barrier between the foundation and my skin (especially with acne) so my skin feels healthier, and my pores are less noticeable, so it’s like a primer.

#4: Layer Creams With Powders

Layering cream products with powder products! I go in with a cream contour, blush, and highlighter, set my face with a light layer of translucent powder, and then go over again with powder contour, blush, and highlighter.

#5: Soak Your Blender With Setting Spray

If you don’t feel like mixing your setting spray with foundation or using it in lieu of primer pre-foundation, we recommend dampening a Beautyblender with a few strategic sprays of spray setting spray instead of water.

#6: Don’t Powder Oily Spots

It seems counterproductive, but my best tip is not powdering any of the areas I get oily (my nose). I like to have a natural, dewy foundation and setting ruins the finish. Also, no matter what powder I use it always breaks apart on my nose. And I have tried EVERYTHING.

Instead, it’s really easy to reapply my foundation or just smooth it out with a BeautyBlender. It tends to look a lot fresher when I do that, whereas with powder, I’d have to totally wash it off and reapply from scratch. I’d rather be shiny but still have a smooth finish, than be matte with cracks and breaks all through my foundation.

#7: Apply Powder Pre-Foundation

I dust a little translucent powder on my face before foundation. It helps the foundation go on smoother, and it extends the wear time.
