Here's How To Keep Your Make Up On All Day Long

We don't know about you - but our make up has a tendancy to dissapear half way through the day! Come 2 o'clock our lips are still looking luscious with lipsticks and stains that stay put, but our once beautiful looking base leaves a lot to be desired!

Here's a few tips we've picked up on our quest to keep our make up on ALL day without fail:

First off exfoliate your face regularly, we all know how important scrubbing your body is but not many of us exfoliate our faces. If you remove dead skin cells the fresh skin will take to make up application much, much better. Try exfoliating twice a week; more if you suffer with dry skin.

Next, use a primer to prep the skin. Using one creates a layer between the skin and your foundation; protecting your pores from clogging up and smoothing out any impurities.

Another great way to keep your base on is a setting spray. Used after applying your make up to keep everything in place - almost like a hairspray does for your hair. They are lightweight and breathable for your skin so won't cause outbreaks; just perfectly placed make up!
