    Top Makeup Tricks! Make That Face Last All Day

    makeup all day

    There’s nothing worse than spending time putting a face on in the morning, only to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed by lunchtime. When you work really hard to create your perfect look, you want it to stay looking perfect but you can’t control the weather or your surroundings. Heat, humidity and general sweatiness of the day all contribute to making that classic face you spent so much time honing slide right off. How dare it! 

    There are things you can do – thankfully – to prevent the ‘melted waxwork’ look by the end of the day. Making your makeup last all day depends on what product you use as much as it is about skill. You can learn more at https://classiccosmetics.com, and you can check out the tricks below to get your look perfected and lasting all day. Whatever you do, make sure that your makeup bag has everything you need to get started.

    Top Makeup Tricks

    • Oil + Water = Disaster. We all know this and the oils in your face are included! So, starting your makeup routine with a clear and clean canvas is important. Before you get started on applying your favourite cosmetics, you need to have a clean, dry face. The oils need a good cleanser and you’ll need an SPF-free moisturizer before adding anything else.
    • Base Coat. When you go for a manicure that is done by a professional, you need a base coat to keep the nail polish on longer. It’s no different for your face. Okay, so you won’t be using a nail polish base coat across your T-Zone, but you will need a primer. This blur the imperfections, fill your pores and keep your makeup lasting longer.
    • Product Choice. A big part of makeup staying on your face all day is the choice of product you use. You can use drugstore makeup and designer makeup and have the same look, but you can bet that the designer makeup will last you for 12 hours as opposed to the 2 hours the drugstore makeup will stay on. Be picky about your makeup and think of it as an investment in yourself.
    • Set It. You’d not go to the hairdressers for a stylish up ‘do and not lock it in with hairspray. Setting your makeup with a setting spray like this can make such a difference. Do this before and after you apply your face so that your makeup looks more natural on your skin.
    • Hands Off. If you’re the sort of person who knuckles their eyes when they’re sleepy, perhaps lay off the layers of mascara. Keeping your hands off your face doesn’t just stop your makeup from running off; it stops you transferring dirt from your hands to your cheeks. Oils on your hands will cause movement in your makeup so keep your hands away from your face as much as possible.

    Keeping your makeup on all day is not as easy, but with these tips you should be able to have an easier time of it, meaning your face will look as fresh on the long commute home as it did on the way!

    The Brush Bar: How to Clean and Dry Makeup Brushes

    I love wearing makeup but when it comes down to washing my one million and one brushes it can be a hell of a deal. I’ve tried every method known to wash my brushes and leave them to dry; from using the palm of my hand and laying them to dry on napkins/towel to using the Brush Bar and the Brush Board.

    dimples eyelashes China

    Eyelashes! Eyelashes! They can be hard to put on at first but once you get the hang of it. Then you are well on your way to popping eyes. I don’t wear lashes but I have considered doing it several times. I don’t wear them since I think my lashes are long enough and just need a little spruce up from wearing mascara. Other times I think I need lashes to enhance my look. Read more

    Blogger’s Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer – Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer

    I am totally impressed with this product ‘Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer.’ I love to see an eyeshadow that is popping with pigments whether bold or nude on any and every skin tone. This is what the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer does; it enhances the quality of the eyeshadow by providing a strong hold and colour vibrancy.

    The product is creamy and glides onto eyes smoothly by using the tip of a flat brush.
     
    With the Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer I did not experience any product fall out, creasing or wrinkling in my eye area. The product does not tug while being applied as it goes on smoothly. Blending in eyeshadow is also easy with this product. 

    Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer

    There were no signs of colour fading after wearing my eyeshadow for several hours. And as the rule says a little goes a long way; therefore excessive use of the product is not needed to get your eyeshadow to pop.

    Packaging

    The Ambrosia Cosmetics Eye Fx Eyeshadow Primer comes in a 10-gram container with material made from polyethylene and terephthalate. The product can be easily identified with the labeling on top cover.

    Where can it be purchased?

    Anyhow, the product is not 100% easy to come by as it is not widely available. It is made in Trinidad and sold for TT$12.

    Blogger’s Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer – Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner

    I love a good wing liner even though I don’t normally get it right on the first try. I mostly wear wing liner when I’m looking to achieve a natural look or I don’t have much time to apply eyeshadow to my lids. The Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner helps me to achieve a super defined and sharper look wing liner. With the brush tip applicator, the liner glides on smoothly. I also felt that I had to go over the same area several times to make a deep black line. To get it more pigmented I had to wipe the product on the back of my hands to help the product flow out much easier.

    Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner


    The formula is pigmented, it gives off an opaque intense black, matte finish. The staying power is long and it does not dry and chips off like some liner.
     
    Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner in Trooper ($20.00 for .02 oz.) comes in a black pen-like design with a brush tip applicator. The packaging is sleek and sturdy. The cap prevents the liquid from drying out and it snaps when being closed that way you know the cap fastens and the product will not stay drying out.

    Blogger's Beauty Brawl: Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner

    The tip of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner is made from synthetic hairs packed together in a pointed shape that allows for a more precise eyeliner application.

     

    Kat Von D Tattoo Liquid Eye Liner is easy to use, precise, long staying power and I did not notice any form of dragging while applying the product to my eyelids.

    Blogger’s Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer – Ambrosia Cosmetics Definition Brow Gel

    There I was scrolling through Facebook and I came across this flawless, amazingly defined eyebrows. I immediately had to inquire about the product that was used to get the eyebrows to perfection. After doing a thorough research on the brow gel I consider buying and trying the product. Only to find out that the product used is a brow gel that was made in Trinidad. It is cruelty-free. Anyhow, I still got a hold of the product and I must say it is one of the best brow gel product that I have ever used.

    I have used many other brow products from different brands such as MAC cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, NYX cosmetics etc. but it’s my first time coming across a brow product that is so creamy and not drying. Read more

    Blogger’s Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer – Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

    Blogger's Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer - Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

    The key to wearing a good matte lipstick application is clean, dry, moisturized and exfoliated lips. Matte lipsticks can be drying, so it is important to drink enough water throughout the day to keep the lips hydrated. Also applying lip balm prior matte lipstick application is required.

    Kat Von d Everlasting Liquid Lipstick (Damned)

    I picked up this Kat Von d Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Damned. A deep burgundy shade. I am a huge fan of Kat Von D cosmetics so I had to at least sample one of the liquid lipsticks. Then again at a price of $20 each for 6.6mL/0.22 fl. Oz. I couldn’t justify myself buying all 46 shades at once. I just picked up a shade that looked perfect in the packaging and something that is not close to what I already own. The price is in the same range as several other brand liquid lipsticks on the market.
     

    I like dark vampy colours so I choose to go with this deep burgundish shade (Damned).

    Packaging

    The liquid lipstick comes in a clear plastic tube with a thin sponge doe foot applicator. The tip of the applicator allows you to precisely apply the liquid lipstick from one corner of your lips to the other. The flat edge of the applicator covers the surface of the lip as you swipe from left to right. The sponge does not pick up as many products so you might want to coat the lips 2-3 times to get that opaque pigmented, even application look.
     

    Pros

    Cons

    Not transferable
    Drying
    Highly pigmented
    Uneven application
    Non-sticky
    Messy (crack, feather…)
    Smooth application
    Easy to apply
    Buildable
    Blogger's Beauty Brawl: 10 Days of Summer - Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

    The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick has a long lasting staying power with high pigmentation. It is kiss proof and non-transferable. Exactly what I look for in a matte lipstick. The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is drying but not to the point that the lips feel dehydrated. The texture is lightweight and it glides on smoothly, however; I feel like the doe foot applicator sponge could be a bit thicker. Thick enough to pick up an ample amount of product to apply to lips. I had to coat my lips 2-3 times before I could get the product to look even on my lips. The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick dried very fast between each application, the product did not felt sticky like some other liquid lipsticks neither was it messy on the lips. The liquid lipstick sits comfortably on the lips you will forget that it is even there. If you are gonna wear this Kat Von D liquid lipstick watch out for a little feathering especially if you eat greasy food or have dry lips. Eating anything oily will separate the liquid lipstick making it become messy.

     
    With the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, I was able to eat without this product smearing on my chin.
