It’s always a better idea to invest in good base makeup.


Use a concealor which is according to your skin, for oily skin its always better to use  liquid concealor  or cream to powder concealors  as they glide easily without settling on fine lines . As for dry skin its better to use lightweight liquid concealor  or smooth cream concealor they have least tendency to flake out plus provides coverage. Stick concealors which are smooth can be used to but sometimes they tend to be heavy too .Use a supreme concealor  to get long lasting coverage.


Not a new word in makeup game but surely an effective technique to make your makeup last long . Once your base makeup is done , its always better to set the necessary areas by a  mattifying translucent or a pressed powder . One should not use loads of powder as it makes your skin appear dry . A Translucent powder always works well for baking. Apply the powder under your eyes  and the highlighted area’s ,leave it for a 1 or 2 minutes and then brush it out . This is the apt technique used for setting your under eye after application of concealor  .


5]Eyeshadow primer :-

Coming to our eyes which is of course our favorite part of makeup . It usually happens with many people that no matter what eyeshadows or kohl you apply after few hours their intensity tends to get low or they start creasing. An eyeshadow primer is specifically  designed for our eyes as it works perfectly for the  long lasting effect. Earlier I used a concealor for this purpose but after using an eyeshadow primer I could see the difference of a] Colors popping out more and b] Superb long lasting effect . One can also use cream eyeshadows underneath as they work well too . M.A.C paint ponts  are amazing for creating a amazing canvas for our eyes they even have the ability to make your eyeshadows pop out more  plus helps the eye makeup last longer .



6]Makeup setting spray:-

Give a final touch to  your makeup by sprinkling setting spray all over your face to avoid the   makeup to spread . The best things about a setting spray is that they can be used pre and post makeup . If you use pre makeup it acts as an amazing primer plus post makeup it gives you airbrush look which will last long without any ‘touch ups’.

-M.A.C fix plus is an amazing setting spray

-Makeup revolution pro fix setting spray is a  cheaper alternative which works the same way.

So give your skin the 100watt airbrush finish which will last all day .
