Every make up wearer knows the deal; when you’ve got a hectic day or big event, how do you get your make up to last? You’ve probably tried all sorts of tips and tricks but here are our favourites.

A prepped and primed face helps prevent foundation from sliding clean off. Moisturisers or primers are key for this, but try and find the best one for your skin. Different products work better depending on if you have oily, dry or combination skin. It also ensures the foundation has something to stick to, so it lasts so much longer.

Worried that powder will make your skin look cakey? It’s time to go translucent. Our Finishing Powder helps stop your make up from slipping by mattifying the natural oils your skin produces throughout the day. Plus, the lightweight, translucent formula won’t discolour your foundation.

A setting spray is a must for helping to keep your make up together. You can also reapply throughout the day for an instant refresh. Different setting sprays work better for different skin types whether you need to keep the shine at bay or want a dewy finish.

Blotting pads soak up the natural oils in the skin that cause make up slide. Apply blotting tissue through out the day to reduce the appearance of oil, stop make up separating and reduce unwanted shine.

The odd touch up here and there throughout the day ensures there is no creasing and that you maintain your fresh look all day long. By either using powder, blotting tissues or a blending sponge, it can repair any damage to your make up.
