Baby gal, makeup melting off or running down your face AIN’T CUTE 🙅🏼 But don’t chu sweat (literally), we’ve got your ULTIMATE stay-all-day makeup look sorted. We sat down with our amaze Beauty Expert, April, to find out her TOP TIPS for makin’ makeup stay in place all day long #SLAYGIRL 🔥
PREP YO’ SKIN, BBY ✨ This is ESSENTIAL for making sure your makeup goes on flawlessly. We love using our Alya Skin Pink Clay Mask -- Make sure to use it before you head to the festy to make sure you're skin is clean and prepped for a weekend of face wipes.... eek! Your skin will thank you for it.
Hydrated skin is THE GOAL. If you’re heading to a festival it normally means you’ll be in the sun for most of the day, so you want to make sure your skin is full of H2O! 💦💦 Use M.A.C Fix+ before AND after makeup -- It will prep your skin, hydrate and set your makeup (TRIPLE THREAT). You can also spritz throughout the day to keep your skin feeling fresh. Choose your fave scent, OR our ‘Goldlite’ or ‘Pinklite’ for extra sparkle ✨ OR ‘Matte’ to reduce oiliness through the day.
Make sure to use a primer + a long lasting foundation -- Our ultimate duo for a flawless/non-cakey base. Don't use too much foundation as you can build with concealer and powder. Get a flawless base without feeling cakey all day! #GOALS ⚡️ Check out the M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation + Ofra Cosmetics Skin Sculpting Wand.
Use a translucent or coloured powder to set your makeup in place! Most compacts come with a handy mirror so you can easily touch up (#YASS).
PRO TIP: GET BAKING! Let the translucent powder sit on your face for 5-10 mins -- This will allow the heat from your face to set your base foundation and concealer. Then dust it off on your face, leaving a creaseless + flawless finish.
Don't forget your brows, babe. Use an eyebrow gel to make sure you're brows don't move when raving 💃🏼 We love the Benefit 24hr Brow Setter because it keeps the hairs in place ALL DAY!
Use a Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lippy -- Not only will it look AMAZE, but the formula will stay all day without chapping 🙌🏼 So you won't have to keep re-applying! My pick for Splendour - Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick Androgyny ♡
Use the Ardell Duo Striplash Adhesive to apply glitter to your face, apply glue to where you want the glitter to go and dab on ☆ Setting sprays are also great for applying glitter to eyelids or lips! The Gyspy Shrine gems are pre-glued and so easy to apply, press onto skin and you're done!
QUICK TIP: Take a little tube of the duo glue with you just in case you need it at the festival! ⭐️
THERE YOU HAVE IT! Our tips for the ultimate stay-all-day makeup look. Have fun, glitter gals! 💕
