Use A Primer

After your skin has been cleansed and prepared, apply a primer to your face. Primer prolongs the lifespan of foundations and makes them stay throughout the day. They fill in your pores and fine lines and give a seamless finish. It blurs imperfections and textures on the skin.

Choose An Oil-Free Foundation

The oil in your liquid foundation could make it greasy and cause it to slide around. And the rest of your makeup will also slide off and looks cakey. Avoid oil-based foundations even if your skin is dry. To hydrate your skin, you can use an extra moisturizing moisturizer. An oil-free foundation will leave you with a flawless, long-lasting finish, says Poonam Lalwani.

Use full-coverage matte foundations which does not feel heavy or cakey due to their saturated color pigments. These foundations glide on the skin and don't clog pores.

Less Is More

If you want your makeup lasts all day, it is important to use light layers of makeup and slowly increase coverage. The lasting power of the foundation will be diminished if it is too heavy. A damp beauty sponge is recommended if you desire a foundation that lasts. The sponge gives your skin a natural look.

Set Your Makeup

Apply your liquid foundation and set it with a powdered or loose powder. Try a matte foundation for a natural matte finish, and then lock it with powder. You can continue using your other makeup products, such as bronzer, blush, and highlight.

After you're satisfied with your makeup, apply a setting spray to your face. The setting spray helps prolong the life of liquid foundations, blends makeup seamlessly, and gives them a natural look.

It's no surprise that foundation quickly fades after all the running and hustling you do on a hot summer day. It is not always practicable to preserve your makeup skills during a hectic day. Follow these tips to ensure your liquid foundation lasts all day.
