According to Redditors, These 7 Tricks Will Make Your Foundation Last All Day
There's nothing that bothers us more than slip-and-slide foundation. You know, when your foundation application has already gone rogue come 10 a.m., making a wayward decision to head everywherebut your face? We know we're not alone. In addition to the issue representing a common thread of concern in our Facebook group, The British Beauty Line, we found the predicament in a thread on Reddit. Because, yes, we staunchly believe we could likely solve all the world's problems if we spent enough time in the site's dark depths.
Over the years, we've gleaned some of the best tips and tricks when it comes to makeup application from you all, so not surprisingly, we found ourselves fascinated, nodding our heads in agreement, with nearly every recommendation dear redditors left in hopes of achieving a flawless, stay-all-day foundation aesthetic. Seven foundation tips stood out to us in particular, so in the spirit of giving, we decided to pay it forward and relay the best comments we saw to you directly. Keep scrolling for seven redditor- and Byrdie-approved tricks to make your foundation last all day.
Tip One: Mix Your Foundation and Setting Spray
"Mix a little setting spray with your foundation before putting it on—your foundation won't budge," explains one redditor, necas0109.
Tip Two: Shave Your Face
While an actual dermaplaning appointment is the best way to achieve a super-smooth face finish (therefore enhancing your foundation stick), upgrading your usual routine with a similar hair-wicking device (like Dermaflash!) and following with a splash of refreshing rose water can work wonders. Plus, it's emimhatstat's "godsent" cure to ensure a stay-all-day finish.
Tip Three: Prime Your Face With Setting Spray
"Spraying setting spray BEFORE foundation. My foundation holds better, there’s a barrier between the foundation and my skin (especially with acne) so my skin feels healthier, and my pores are less noticeable, so it’s like a primer.
"This is especially great if you have dry skin (I have oily skin but my foundation will flake if I don’t moisturise enough before applying makeup) or are having a bad skin day where your skin feels tired and needs more moisture. I’m in love with Urban Decay's setting spray, in particular," says My-Name-Is-Jen.
Tip Four: Layer Creams With Powders
"Layering cream products with powder products!" exclaims vnssv.
