- Prep your self
If you have oily skin or combination i have found that during the day skipping your moisturizer and using a good primer is key . I have tried all sorts of day time moisturizer's thinking that i HAD to use it and just had not found THE ONE . Think about it tho , we spend our time trying to cut down on the oil and moister to help the foundation/concealer stick around all day . Well adding more isn't going to help . If you use a good night time moisturizer i have found that my skin feels great all day . Now primer will lock in that feeling of refreshing thrice quenched skin yet give your foundation/concealer something to hold on to thought out the day .
-Whats your coverage ?
Skin is prepped and ready to go , what are my coverage options ? Powder foundation , Matte foundation , Concealer on the trouble spots???
Really any of these will do . It all depends on your skin what you want to cover . Key points to keep in mind you want a something that will be able to handle long hours , high tempter and is transfer resistant . If you work out doors you may even want to go water proof. If you are going with a liquid keep in mind its day time work hours unless your job requires you look picture perfect , light applications . Lets not for get there is always concealer for those trouble spots .
An easy way to avoid that dreaded overdone look is to you use a multipurpose product . Make that blush tint double as a lip stain , bronzer warm up those brow bones . This way its less you carry with you for touch ups and less to worry about .
-Blot don't wipe
Every one should carry blotting sheets with them . If you ran out or cant find them just keep the motion in mind . We want to dry up the shine and leave the make up , so don't wipe it away . Make sure you do this instead or before your powder your T-zone to avoid caked on make up .
Hope you find this helpful . Thanks again for reading and i love the feedback so be sure to leave comments on what works for you , i am always looking for new tips and tricks to learn.
