Every girl wants her make up to last all day. The last thing you want to do when going to a party is re-apply your make up constantly throughout the night! The key to eliminate the fade is to always apply a cream before the powder. If its long lasting eye shadow you want, always use a creamy primer or a cream eye shadow. Apply the powder right on top of it; it eliminates creasing, brings out the true color and stays on all day! Same goes for eyeliner; if you are using a pencil to line your eyes, always go over it with a black eyeshadow with a thin brush to keep your eyeliner in place. If you like to fill in your eyebrows, use a pencil to shade it in and go over it with eyeshadow or eyebrow powder. It creates a more defined brow and it's smudge-proof! Its one thing to have your eyeliner smear...its another for your eyebrows! Blush is another thing that fades very easily! Apply a cream blush, and use a translucent powder to set it in, then apply powder blush on top of it. Make sure you powder it before you add the powder blush because powder blends with powder, not cream; plus, you do not want spotchy cheeks! Lastly, your lips...it is a good idea to apply some foundation or concealer on your lips before any color. This helps the lipstick go on true instead of mixing with your lip color. Another thing you can do is fill in your lips completely with the lip liner and then your lipstick or gloss. Pencil stays on very well...no smudging, no feathering! I hope this helps! :)
