How To: Make Your Party Makeup Last All Night

It’s party season! Which means full-face glam makeup is not just an option… it’s a necessity. But do you ever find that your makeup wears off throughout the night? If so, you may have been missing the most important makeup step without even realising…

We’re talking about primer, ladies! This is the key to perfect, long-lasting makeup.

Perhaps you have been at a beauty counter before and seen the primers but not known the benefits of them. You’ve more than likely walked right past them, as you’re not going to want to spend money on an extra product that you feel you don’t need.

But before you dismiss them completely, let us tell you our top 4 reasons you need a primer:

  1. They seal pores
    Unfortunately, no matter how small your pores are, using liquid foundation often makes them more visible. Using a primer prior to your foundation will take care of this by sealing over them – almost like a blanket, making those pores virtually undetectable.
  2. Smoother makeup
    In the exact same way that a paint primer seals the surface and helps create a bond so that the paint adheres better… a makeup primer does the same for your foundation.  Using a primer before your face makeup, makes your foundation appear so soft and almost velvet-looking – once you use one, you will find it hard to go without!
  3. Makeup lasts longer
    Primers help decrease the amount of sweating through pores, making your face stay put for longer. This is especially great for those of us who are a bit on the oily side!
  4. Works with any skin type or colour
    No matter your skin tone, or type – primer will work for you. Simply apply before your regular foundation routine and enjoy long-lasting, pore minimising, flawless makeup!
