Make yourself party-ready and makeup-proof by adding a few more products and some hacks into your makeup regime. So, here we have for you 8 party makeup tricks to make your makeup last through the entire celebration.
8 party makeup tricks
1. Start On A Clean Slate
If there’s one thing that runs down makeup, it is the oil. And any product react best when put on a smooth clean skin. So, make sure you exfoliate your skin, cleanse it with a gentle wash, protect your pores with a toner and then put on an oil-free moisturizer to prep it up. Let it sink in for a few minutes before you start the art.
2. Apply Your Primer
Primer is a cream that acts as a base between your skin and the makeup, thereby protecting it. It prevents chemicals from leaking into your pores, seals in the moisturizer, lets you apply your best makeup more evenly, and makes it last longer. Sounds like a miracle product, doesn’t it? So, though often overlook in importance, it really does magic to your skin. Any mineral based or oil-free primer can be your savior.
3. Use Waterproof Makeup
One of the best makeup tips is to get all the right tools for a lasting effect. One of these is to switch to waterproof eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow, for blotch-free sharp eyes. But don’t forget to remove your makeup before calling it a night, or you’ll have panda eyes in the morning!
4. Avoid The Flaky-Cakey
Instead of rubbing on a heavy layer of foundation, apply several light layers over your concealer and build it up to give it a natural and smooth look. Blend, blend and then blend some more, as it ensures that your base doesn’t start to look cakey by the time you join the party.
5. Set Your Makeup Right
Just like a hair spray keeps your styled hair intact, a makeup setting spray locks in your makeup and makes it last longer. If you are not comfortable with a makeup spray, then just apply some setting powder. The powder will give a matte finish over your makeup, minus the grease, making your beauty at home regime easy.
6. Long-Lasting lipstick
Admit it or not, lipsticks are always the savior of any waning makeup trick. Hence, a little more effort to make that lipstick stay longer can save you from any makeup faux pas later. Always start with smudging a thin layer of foundation on your lips. Outline your lips with a lip-liner of any neutral hue or the one complementing the shade of your lipstick. And finally, you can apply your lipstick which will now have a much longer life.
7. Carry your makeup essentials
To keep yourself safe from any makeup melting emergencies, carry a pouch of all your makeup essentials. This must include your lipstick, a compact in case of a sweaty situation, a concealer in case of a smudgy situation, and tissues.
Pro-tip: Excess oil is the main foe of long-lasting makeup. Keep it at bay by patting you face occasionally with the tissue. So, yes don’t forget those tissues, ever!
8. Keep Your Hands Off Your Face
The last thing you’ve got to do is resist the fidgety urge to touch your face every now and then. It can cause your makeup to smudge. If you resist touching your face, this makeup trick will take you a long way in looking beautiful and avoiding breakouts. So, yes you love that pretty face of yours, but don’t touch it.
With these 8 makeup tricks along with the right products, you will not only be able to get ready like a pro, but sport a superb look all night-long. So, while the other girls struggle through the night to look good you can give them something to be jealous of with your all-night lasting makeup trick. Knowing that you have your makeup essentials and how to use them right will certainly grant you a boosted confidence and a tension-free mood to enjoy those parties more!
