Who doesn’t want a flawless look that lasts all day? You should be able to go from the office to your kid’s soccer game without needing a touchup. But sometimes our makeup just doesn’t stay where we put it. Luckily, there are some easy ways to make your makeup last all day and keep it looking fresh and beautiful for hours. Follow this advice, and you’ll never have to worry about your makeup sliding off again!
Apply concealer in a triangle shape under the eyes.
To apply concealer in a triangle shape, use a concealer brush and apply the product in dots close to your eye. Blend the product by applying it with your fingers. The trick is to make sure you use a shade that’s one shade lighter than your natural skin tone, so that it will blend into the skin seamlessly and won’t look cakey or obvious when applied with a brush.
If you’re looking for a way to banish those pesky blackheads, it’s time to put your pore strips to good use. Pore strips are great if you have problematic skin and want to see how many blackheads you have; they’re also fantastic at pulling away the dirt and debris that lead to blackheads in the first place.

If you don’t want to use a pore strip, try using a mask instead! Charcoal masks are especially great because they draw out impurities right from your pores, leaving them clean and clear. Or maybe choose one based on what kind of effects you think it will give your skin—a hydrating mask can do wonders for dry or sensitive areas around the nose and mouth, while clay masks help fight oil buildup around larger pores.
Wash your brushes regularly.
- Use a brush cleaner, or soap and water. If you’re using a brush cleaner, it should be applied to the bristles before being agitated in warm water for about 30 seconds. To do this, simply dip the end of your wet brush into the liquid and swirl it around until it foams up.
- Clean brushes after every use! This is important because if you don’t clean them between uses, bacteria will build up on the bristles which can cause breakouts or infections when applied to skin during makeup application.
- If you don’t clean them regularly: Your makeup will look bad! Your face might break out because of germs that have been living in that sponge forever!
Use gentle, soap-free cleansers.
Cleansers shouldn’t be harsh or abrasive. They should also be free of irritants like alcohol, fragrance, dyes and other additives. Look for gentle cleansers that are formulated especially for your skin type.
Avoid products containing harsh detergents or soap because they can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause dryness, itching or even breakouts. Avoid cleansing brushes with sharp edges as these could cause micro-tears in the skin.
Invest in the right primer.
One of the most important steps in achieving a flawless makeup look is to use primer. Primer helps your foundation go on smoother, and it can also help keep it from settling into lines and pores. The right primer can actually help make your skin look more natural—and give you a more even skin tone—by evening out your complexion under the surface. You don’t want to skip this step or buy any old thing off of Amazon or Sephora (even though those are both great places for makeup!).
Investing in high-quality products like Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer will give you the best results possible when it comes to making sure that your face stays put all day long, no matter what kind of workday or weather conditions come with each passing season.
Contouring is a powerful weapon to use against bad makeup days.
Contouring is a powerful weapon to use against bad makeup days. It’s also one of the most effective ways to enhance your facial features and make them look more defined.
In case you’re not familiar with contouring, it’s basically the act of using different shades of makeup to create shadows on your face that make you look slimmer, taller or younger. You can use it to hide dark circles under your eyes (or fake them if you have none), hide blemishes or even draw attention away from a large forehead by creating a shadow in that area.
Contouring is also great if you want your makeup to last all day long—just remember not to overdo it! There’s no point in looking like someone else altogether when all we want is an enhanced version of ourselves.
