Ask Leesha: Make your Makeup Last

By  |  177 Comments

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.

    Always refered to your channel for make up looks, & had always learnt a thing or 2 from your tutorials. I even downloaded an app from the app store on iPhone ‘beauty gurus’, just to watch your latest tutorials! I would lime to try the one on no more shine (:

    I noticed i have a problem with my foundation also not lasting all day & thats that I use a primer but I think it doesnt last long because I have oily skin & the oil seeps through my makeup. If I were to win I would like the No More Shine Makeup Finishing Spray. I think it would really help me :)

    I got really oily skin even in the winter, so the oily skin formula would be nice to try. Have you tried the Urban Decay setting spray equivalence?

    In definitely need no more shine finish spray. I always take good care of my skin: clean, exfoliate and hydrate it but it always gets oily in the T area. It’s chronicle.

    I would love to try the No More Shine finish spray as:
    1. the website doesn’t ship to England :(
    2. the Urban Decay All Nighter spray doesn’t really work for me :( :(
    3. I would prefer to try it out before I trawl the internet trying to find a website that actually does sell it to the UK.
