This time of year as you know is always hectic,company parties, school recitals and a pleuthora of other engagements, all requiring you to look your best.In order to look your best your makeup has to have staying power and not look like a bottle of oil exploded on your face, therefore here are a few products that I know will prolong the wear of your makeup for the busy season ahead.
1.Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer- The first step in applying your makeup is a primer and we all know what a primer does in that it perfects the skin and provides a smooth canvas for your foundation, so always apply a pea size amount all over your face concentrating mainly in your T-Zone area.
2.Phillips Milk of Magnesia -This product although a laxative is one of my holy grail products and is a wonderful for keeping your face virtually oil-free for hours on end.I have written about this product in the past see post HERE and I use it religiously in conjunction with an actual face primer to achieve optimal results. I strongly believe that Milk of Magnesia is a key product for ladies who have oily skin as it mattifies,allows your makeup to apply smoothly and keeps it intact and flawless.
3.Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Powder-This loose colour free powder has the name suggest cancels out oil without causing your makeup to be cakey, nor does it leave a white cast, if you have minor skin imperfections then this powder can be worn on its own to give a matte look or can be worn as a finishing powder to lock your makeup in place and prevent shine see my review HERE
4.Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish ( Oily Skin Formula)-Lastly after applying your makeup it is important to set your masterpiece and this finishing spray does just that, since it is in the oily skin formula it does keep the oil at bay for a considerable amount of time and prevents touch ups through the day/night.
I really hope that this post helped you in finding products that will improve the longevity of your makeup especially for this festive season let me know if you have any holy grail products that I need to try.
