How to get long lasting Makeup

If you want to create the perfect canvas for makeup, priming is key. If you want your makeup to last all day, setting is key! Whatever skin type you have, you need it for makeup that will stay fresh all day. Dry, Oily or combination skin can benefit from setting products. I’ll post my favorites below!


Use on a bare moisturized face before applying makeup. Works best if it can set a few minutes!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Primer

My current drugstore favorite- It’s a lightweight creamy consistency with a little tackiness that doesn’t break me out like silicone primers do. Helps give a smooth finish! Love!

NYX Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer

These are great all around silicone primers that come in tinted shades too if you have a lot of redness or dull skin that needs extra prep before foundation. It comes in clear, green, and purple! If you like more of a silicone style primer this one is great.

::Setting Sprays::

Use after applying your full face to make everything stay in place! Spritz on eye makeup brushes for adding longevity to powders.

Maskcara Stay Spray

Although the Maskcara “Stay” is a setting spray, it can double as both! Spray some on the damp “Perfector” sponge and dab it all over your face before applying your makeup too. It smells like the beach!

A great all around setting spray for oily skin. A lightweight mist minimizes pores and combats shine for a flawless finish.
