3 Ways to Make Your Makeup Last All Day Long | Marilyn Monroe Spas

Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to making your makeup last all day long and we’re going to share a few of our favorites with you. With our foolproof tips, your makeup is sure to last all day long.

1.Start with a clean face. We all know that oil and water don’t mix, right? One of the first things you should do in the morning before applying your makeup is starting with a fresh face. Be sure to wash off all of the oils before applying any makeup. A quick cleansing will save you tons of frustration. After your cleanse, apply an oil-free moisturizer with SPF. And don’t forget the ordinal rule – wait a few minutes so the product sinks in before moving right on to the next one.

2.Primer will be your best friend. Long lasting makeup starts with a base, just like any work of art. A primer will fill in your pores, blur any imperfections, and help your makeup last all day long. Marilyn Monroe Spas Pore Perfecting Primer is the perfect product for the job.

If pore perfecting isn’t what you’re looking for, you can find a primer for reducing redness, acne prone skin, or dry-skin. There’s literally a primer for everything you need gals!

3. Pick the right products and lock it in! Picking the right products is essential for makeup that lasts all day long. If you’re skin is oily, opt for a matte or oil absorbent foundation. Dry skin? Opt for an oil or water based foundation. Foundations with added SPF such as Marilyn Monroe Spas MM Cream is always a bonus. Once you’ve picked the right foundation for your skin type, lock it in with a translucent powder and a setting spray. Both of these products will not only set your makeup but remove any excess oil.

Now that we’ve shared 3 ways to make your makeup last all day long, you’re on your way to long lasting makeup.
