Struggling with makeup that won't last? This tip in your makeup routine is all you need and it comes tried & tested!

Long lasting makeup is desirable but a lot of people struggle to keep it in place for hours on end.

Make-up for oily skin especially can be quite tricky as it takes a lot of skill to get it to stay on and flawless at the same time last all day.

While some will argue that a primer works best which should be the first thing to go on the facial skin before makeup application, not all primer gives that result and  let's face it using a super expensive primer all day everyday under a makeup look is wasteful when there is a way to achieve a long lasting result without breaking the bank!

Makeup can be kept in place by dusting white/translucent powder on the skin before applying anything and over foundation to last for longer.



It's important though to ensure long lasting and water based makeup products are used  everyday to achieve a flattering coverage that will last all day. So to ensure makeup last all day use Translucent powder (or plain old white powder)!
