Stay Fresh All Summer Long: How to Make your Makeup Last in the Las Vegas Heat... or anywhere your summer takes you
How your makeup lasts is all determined by how you care for your face beforehand and most importantly what products you are using. It is imperative that you make sure you are starting with a clean face before you apply a full face of makeup. Follow these tips...and your makeup will stay for those super hot summer days!
Exfoliating is key
The smoother the surface, the easier it is to apply your makeup. Make sure you polish up your face and remove dead skin cells with a good exfoliator...one of the first keys to having long lasting makeup.
Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!
Avoid those fine lines your makeup sinks into with a good moisturizer that primes your face too. When your face begins to dry out, your makeup begins to crease, causing your skin to look uneven. Finding a good moisturizer can help even out your skins fluctuating hydration levels. SeneGence Normal-Dry Daytime Moisturizer ($50.00) gives you anti-aging properties and protects from over oil production within the skin giving you a youthful glow, and an SPF factor too.
Priming your face is the #1 task you need to do before you begin to apply your makeup. Choosing a good primer will allow you to hold in your moisturizer, providing you the smooth and even surface you need. Priming your face beforehand also allows for your makeup to not be absorbed, avoiding lines and giving you that all day wear you desire.A serious makeup Primer that is good for your skin is Silk...it fills in the pores and creases plus it is an anti-aging cream that gives a very silky feel to your skin for application. Famous Hollywood makeup artist Myke Michaels uses Silk to prime every hollywood face he applies makeup to, man or women! It's the perfect base for a flawless face!
Less is more, but layer it
When we say layer your makeup, we mean lightly. Don’t go crazy and cake on as much as you can because you’ll be getting results you definitely won’t like. We just mean putting on your makeup products in light layers. It will have your end result lasting a lot longer. With MakeSense Foundation or Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer, you don't need to worry about "caking makeup"! It is light weight naturally and stays ON all day! It won't even sweat off in the heat of the desert! This applies to the your base makeup, eyes, and lips too. With summer in full effect, the SeneGence ShadowSense Tropical Collection ($88.00) has the perfect colors this season for you to practice your layering skills, look great and have them stay on, since they are budge proof!
Setting Spray, of course!
This last tip is an absolute must if you DON'T use SeneGence Makeup....it is NOT necessary at all if you use MakeSense Cosmetics...because they stay on all day....It makes sense right? If you DON'T use them and if you want your makeup to last all day in the Las Vegas heat then you definitely have to finish off with a good setting spray. This product is made specifically so that all the hard work you put into applying your makeup stays in place and doesn’t require much touching up. This should be the last step in your face application before you leave the house. (unless you use SeneGence makeup that is! )
