Hey my loves,
in today’s blog post I am going to talk about my long-lasting fall makeup routine with you and share my secrets on how I make it last all day long. I will also include my six favorite fall lipstick shades for this season.
Skincare is key when it comes to making your makeup super long-lasting. So I always make sure that the night before I cleansed my skin super well. if you would like to have an in depth skincare routine check out my post about that.
Primer is also an important step. Each skin type needs to use their own particular primer, but since I have combination skin I like to use something that is super sticky. I use “The Ordinary – High-Adherance Silicone Primer” and I have been for super long now.
Foundation is the make or break in a long-lasting makeup look, if you’re foundation doesn’t hold all day. How should the rest of your products stay on? I always go back to my favorite in the colder seasons, which is the “L’Oréal Paris – True Match Liquid Foundation“. They now have added hyaluronic acid to their foundation which is amazing because it has great skincare values.
Concealer for all the little spots and dark circles. I always make sure to use as less concealer as I can since I tend to crease with it on a lot quicker especially under my eyes. But here’s my tip for you: Only apply it on the lower half of your under eye circles and don’t go up all the way to your eye. That way you stay a way from the fine lines right under the eye. It works wonders for me. For my concealer I use the “Maybelline – Face Studio Concealer“.
Setting Powder is next to foundation the KEY to making your makeup long-lasting. I find that if you don’t use the right powder for your skin type and level on longevity, your makeup tends to rub off a lot quicker. I LOVE my “Laura Mercier – Translucent Loose Setting Powder” because it leaves my skin feeling smooth and silky and it will make my makeup not move an inch, while also making it look like I am not wearing any powder at all.
Bronzer and Contour are my next steps in my routine. To be fair, I don’t use a bronzer on the daily basis, but if I do I like to use the “Physician Formula – Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil Bronzer“. For my contour powder I am staying true to my one true love which is the “Benefit – Hoola Bronzer“. I find that it works amazing as a contour on my skin color.
Blush is where it gets a little tricky for me. I get a little oily in those areas so powder blushes tend to just disappear after a while. But I now have the perfect combination for long-lasting blush. For my base, before I apply my powder I use the “NIP+FAB – Liquid Blush in Mauve Moment” and after applying a light dust of my face powder I set my liquid blush with the “Maybelline – Face Studio Blush”.
Highlighter I don’t use on an everyday basis, but if I were to use a highlighter I would probably use my fave the “Becca – Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Opal“.
Brows are super simple for me, because I have been blessed with quite good brows. So I only use my trusty “L’Oréal Paris – Brow Artist Plumper” and run it lightly through my brows.
Setting Spray is my next step because I like to use it before I apply mascara and lipstick. I’ve been recently loving the “NYX – Bare with me Prime Set Refresh Spray” because it literally feels super light, makes my makeup look like skin and it helps with the longevity of my makeup so much.
Mascara is and always be waterproof for me. My eyes get super teary so anything other than waterproof just doesn’t stay on. I recently been trying out the “L’Oréal Paris – Unlimited Waterproof Mascara” and have to say that I really like it. It just takes some time to get used to.
Lipstick never changes for me on an everyday basis, since I just loving the “Maybelline – SuperStay 24hr Lip Color in Rose Dust” it just stays on all day and is my perfect pink nude lipstick for me.
For a quick everyday makeup
I love to switch up my foundation on days where my makeup doesn’t have to stay on for 12 hours or longer. For that I have been recently using the “IT Cosmetics – CC Cream“. And I love it.
