As the festive season approaches, we know that you will all be out partying hard after the last 2 years of uncertainty and plans scuppered!
So here are 5 ways in which you can ensure that your face stays fresh and vibrant all night on the dance floor or around the dinner table!
It’s a well-known fact that very dry or dehydrated skin makes it very hard for make up to stay on at all, let alone all night. Make sure you get a good moisturiser on in the few days before, especially at night when your skin is at its highest peak of cell renewal.
A double cleanse and thicker moisturiser or night cream before bed will ensure a plumper and growing appearance for the day and night ahead!
Dead skin cells lying at the top of your face can give a dull and sallow look to the skin, even just exfoliating no more than once or twice a week can help to turnover new cells and give a much fresher look.
Your moisturiser and masks can work at a much deeper level too!
*Top tip* Why not add a moisturising oil (clear)mask and sleep over night in it for added brownie points!
3. Using a primer!
Primers are wonderful for blurring out any imperfections, creating a blank canvas for your foundation and concealer to go on. Not only will this give you a little extra added hydration, but you can also get a really even coverage all over for your photos with friends and loved ones!
Just apply one pump to the back of the hand and work in across the face with your foundation brush, working in around the nose, eyebrows and hair line.
One of our top tips is to put a good lip liner all over your lips before you apply your first thin layer of lipstick
Then blot and apply a tiny dusting of powder across before applying your second coat.
When it comes to foundation and concealer you are best to apply them with a brush to promote an even coverage and you can really work into those hard-to-reach areas!
When we apply with our fingers, this can add oil from our sweat glands into the product which can break down the properties and cause it to rub off quicker.
Finish your application off with a dusting of setting powder and spray if you have it
