Ask Leesha: Make your Makeup Last

There are lots of things you can do to make your foundation last throughout the day. Key pointers:

  • Use a primer that best suits your skin type (one formulated for dry, oily, or normal skin)
  • Use a foundation that best suits your skin type, and only wear as much as you need
  • SET your makeup with a setting powder (translucent powders, such as Makeup Forever HD, are AWESOME for this!!)

  • Use a Setting Spray

In this video I talk about two setting sprays I really like, Model in a Bottle and Skindinavia.

    dear everyone:
    Its probably a good idea to read the give away directions before posting in the comments, and I quote, “Please use the form below, leaving a comment in the comment section with what you’d like to win will not enter you in the contest!!!” It will only take a few seconds of your time and will actually enter you in the contest.
