Who has time to reapply makeup throughout the day? Try these tips to make sure your makeup lasts all day into the night.
Step 1 Eye serum
Apply serum, gel, or eye cream underneath the eye. Avoid the eyelid as this will encourage smearing of your makeup later in the day.
Example: Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum
Step 2 Primer
Use a primer for your eye lid and face if you are going to apply foundation too.
Example: CoverGirl/Olay's Simply Ageless Serum Primer
Step 3 Concealer
Apply concealer to the eyelid up to the brow bone.
Example: CoverGirl/Olay's Simply Ageless Concealer
Step 4 Cream eyeshadow
Use a shadow stick and apply all over the lid up to the brow bone. Use the pointy end of the stick (usually the darker color) to apply color in the crease of your eye, making a V shape. Blend.
Example: CoverGirl's Smokey Shadow Blast
Step 5 Powder eyeshadow
Layer on powder shadow, shading for your desired look.
Example: CoverGirl Eye Enhancer 4 Kit Shadow
Step 6 Highlighter
Apply highlighter just beneath the eyebrow.
Step 7 Powder:
Use powder and lightly dab over eyelid. This helps to set the makeup for the day.
Step 8 Top eyeliner
Apply eyeliner, staying as close to the lash line as you can.
Example: CoverGirl's Liquiline Blast Eyeliner
Step 9 Trace eyeliner
Trace the eyeliner with shadow for extra staying power.
Step 10 Bottom eyeliner
Apply eyeliner to the bottom lash line as well.
Step 11 Mascara
Use mascara to pump up the volume.
Example: CoverGirl's Lash Blast Volume Blasting mascara
- Layering is key.
