How To Set Your Makeup So It Lasts All Day

Is there anything more frustrating than putting time and effort into your makeup only to have it slip, fade, and degrade the moment you leave the house? Wind, rain, sun, humidity, and air conditioning are just some of the outside forces that skin encounters on a daily basis that can ruin our makeup. Plus, let’s not forget, our own natural oils and shine, plus unconsciously touching our faces. It can feel like a losing battle.

This is where setting powder comes in, or more specifically, the cult favourite Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. This lightweight, soft-focus powder beautifully sets makeup for the long haul without accentuating lines or dry patches. It delivers nothing but a velvety smooth, radiant finish and flawlessness that lasts and lasts. Here’s everything you need to know about setting your makeup so it looks as flawless when you remove it as it did when you first applied it.

How To Make Your Makeup Last All Day

Don’t forget to prep

It’s important to get your skincare right and prime your skin prior to applying makeup if you want your results to be truly long-lasting. Make sure your skin is free of flakes and dry skin with a gentle exfoliator and ensure moisture levels are topped up with a good moisturiser.

Next, prime. Using a primer will help enhance the results of your makeup and ensure it has staying power. Depending on the desired results, your chosen primer will boost hydration, dial up protection, or maximise glow.

For a radiant finish, choose Pure Canvas Primer Illuminating. This radiance-boosting primer contains Porcelain Flower Extract which is rich in antioxidant properties and helps restore skin’s luminosity.

To boost hydration use Pure Canvas Primer Hydrating. It’s nourishing and hydrating, giving skin a healthy, plumped finish.

Finally, to blur the appearance of lines and imperfections, opt for Pure Canvas Primer Blurring. This versatile primer controls shine for up to 16 hours, extends makeup wear, and blurs imperfections with Blurring Powders.

How to keep your makeup on, and flawless, all day

Translucent Loose Setting Powder is lightweight, effortless to apply, and sets makeup for 16 hours, and controls shine for 24 hours. That should see you through an entire day of packed deadlines and long into your evening plans.

This award-winning formula is available in three shades (Translucent, Translucent Honey, and Translucent Medium Deep) that collectively cater to all skin tones and contains Vitamin C and E powders to deliver antioxidants, Skin Conditioning Powder with natural amino acids to nourish skin, and Botanical Blurring Powder to soften the appearance of pores and absorb excess oil. It won’t clog pores or emphasize skin texture; instead, it just delivers smooth, radiant, soft-focus skin that won’t flash back in photography.

How to apply Translucent Loose Setting Powder

When we said it was effortless to apply, we meant it. Saturate the Velour Puff with powder and work it into the fibers by folding the puff in half and rubbing the two sides together. Tap off any excess powder and then press the puff onto your skin, over your makeup, in a rolling motion. Because Translucent Loose Setting Powder is so lightweight and silky, you can top up throughout the day if you want to.

How to make your makeup stay on all night

If you want your makeup to have the ultimate longevity so it sees you through the day and long into the night, then you would be wise to ensure the makeup formulas you opt for deliver long-lasting performance.
