A MAKEUP expert shares 12 tips to ensure your foundation and concealer hide wrinkles and last all day – even when the weather is 30 degrees.
With temperatures set to peak across the country this month, TikToker @barbiebrains has handy tips to help you keep your makeup up on even the hottest of days.
The TikToker offers a 12-step routine to achieve long-lasting makeup looks on hot days.
First, she applies sunscreen and lotion.
From there, she applies primer to the skin.
On exceptionally hot days, the TikToker also adds a matte primer, she says in the video.
She says she likes the way the foundation “grabs the products” and helps lay everything on her face.
Step three involves foundation and spray.
The TikToker puts foundation on her face and then sprinkles her face.
“The spray is key because I feel like it helps my foundation blend in much more seamlessly and not get stuck in one place.
“It just feels nicer,” she says as she applies the product to her face with a brush.
She also adds that if you want full coverage from your foundation, it’s best to buy a full-coverage product.
Then, in step four, she applies a concealer two or three shades lighter than her actual skin tone.
Then she spritzes her face and blends the product in.
The makeup expert notes that with this application, she avoids going into the crevices under the eye when blending with her brush.
But then, in a sixth step, the TikToker applies another shade of concealer – this is about three to five times lighter than her skin tone.
She waits until this application to work the concealer into her eye area with a blender sponge.
“I blend in circular motions as I get closer to my eye area because I feel like those circular motions really help blend the product in and around it so it doesn’t settle,” she says.
She repeats the circular motion as she sets the concealer with powder.
Then, for step eight, the makeup expert moved on to her laugh lines.
“You smile, take your powder and work it right into the smile lines,” she says, adding that if you have “crazy” smile lines, you do the same thing by applying your foundation and repeating the process.
Then she sprays her face again.
For step 10, the TikToker applies her blush.
She generally does a cream blush and then a powder blush on top and spritzes it on afterwards just to be safe.
In the penultimate step, she applies the brown Wet and Wild Eyeliner as a lip liner.
“This is the best lip liner ever,” she says.
Finally, the TikToker applies her lip gloss to complete her look.
She commented on the post and shared some of the products she uses in her video to achieve her long-lasting look.
The makeup expert also had a fan on hand to use between a few steps.
