5 ways to have flawless makeup all day long

Keep these miracle workers in your desk drawer

Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / November 22 2016

Want to look flawless from 9am to 5pm and beyond? Of course you do, and these products can help lay the groundwork for a perfect face of makeup, as well as revive your makeup throughout the day when it starts to look a little worse for wear. 

Here are five clever ways to keep your makeup looking fresh and flawless all day long.


The imperfection blurrer

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector is a multi-purpose complexion balm; apply with a foundation brush all-over before your usual base in the morning, and gently dab over makeup throughout the day to blur afternoon imperfections.


The powder primer

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer is a makeup artist favourite. Apply this smart serum pre-foundation. The result? Younger, healthier looking skin all day long.


The eye brightener

To stop that late-in-the-day crease of shadow, prep eyelids with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Flax in the morning for longer-lasting wear. It also camouflages imperfections and discolorations on your lid so you can even go eyeshadow-free.


The makeup refresher

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ isn’t a makeup setting spray, but rather a finishing spray that softens the look of makeup, kind of like an Instagram filter! Lightly mist this vitamin and mineral packed water over finished makeup or spray lightly throughout the day to refresh the look of your products.


The shine buster

Blitz sheen fast with this handbag staple, Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers, rather than adding more powder, which can result in a cakey finish.
