The Nigerian weather is hot and humid or cold and dry. Either way it terrible for makeup. It gets worse if you have an oily skin. We all know how much effort it takes to apply a face full of makeup, and there’s nothing more annoying than seeing the remnants of your hard work slide down your face by the end of the day.
Getting you makeup to last all day in this Nigerian weather is possible if you know a trick or two. This article is about simple makeup routines and products that would enable your makeup last all day long without smearing or creasing.
Getting you makeup to last all day in this Nigerian weather simply depends on two things – The technique you use in applying your makeup and the type of products you use.
So, below are the products to use, as well as simple techniques and steps to follow to make up your makeup last all day long in this Nigerian weather.
It will work for you irrespective of whether you have an oily skin or if you sweat a lot. All you’ll need to will be to follow my instructions step by step.
STEP 1 – WASH YOUR FACE AND APPLY A MOISTURIZER
Washing away dirt, serum and old makeup will help your fresh makeup stay in place a lot longer.
If you put fresh makeup on a dirty face, it’ll tend to slip off or flake away.
Before you begin putting on your makeup, wash your face and apply a moisturizer.
For oily skin, buy an oil free or gel moisturizer, and for dry skin buy a more nourishing one. If you are older, you can use a moisturizer with anti-wrinkle properties.
After applying your moisturiser, you need to make sure your moisturizer is fully absorbed. Your skin should feel dry before you proceed to the next step.
STEP 2 – APPLY THE FACE PRIMER
When you spend money on makeup, you want it to work as expected. You don’t want to break out, form streaks and you don’t want to look “cakey” on your face.
The next step in this routine involves applying a face primer. The face primer will act as a base for your makeup.
Using primers the best way to hide wrinkles and pores, it makes your foundation last longer and look smoother with very little effort at all.
We highly recommend the Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer.
Below Are It’s Features & Benefits
- Primes skin before applying makeup.
- Prolongs makeup wear time.
- Mattifying and complexion perfecting.
- Minimizes the look of pores and fine lines.
- lightweight, non greasy feel.
This step is really important but most people in their whole entire life of doing makeup do not use a face primer.
You are to squirt a pea size amount onto your palms and apply it on your face just like one would apply a moisturiser.
This “Face Primer” step is the most important aspect of the steps as it help your makeup stick throughout the day.
STEP 3 – APPLY AN OIL FREE FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION
The next step is to apply an oil free, full coverage foundation such as the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer to even out skin tone.
A full coverage oil free foundation is highly recommended. It is important that you get an original product. It is also you get the appropriate shade for your skin tone.
I recommend the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer because it is really affordable and its performance compares to most high end, luxury, premium foundations out there.
The Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer does not feel heavy. It is light and long lasting.
Below Are It’s Features & Benefits
- A liquid foundation that conceals imperfections and evens skin tone.
- Provides full coverage.
- Non-drying, oil-free and fragrance free.
- Comes with a pump for easy application.
I recommend that you use a brush to apply your foundation. When you use a brush and you actually find that it blends a lot easier.
Apply the foundation until you have achieve an even tone finish. We recommend that you dab and not spread on your foundation. Otherwise it make it look sloppy.
You can apply extra layers to conceal areas that you have acne scars or pigmentation.
STEP 4 – APPLY THE OIL FREE, MILANI SHINE PROOF POWDER
If you have an oily skin, the Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder would be a lifesaver for you.
It is mattifying, oil absorbing, sweat proof and long lasting.
Apply the powder all over your face using the puff that is included with it. You can also apply it using a powder brush.
Below Are It’s Features & Benefits
- All day shine control.
- Extremely soft light weight formula.
- Blends evenly and seamlessly onto skin, while delivering a flawless finish.
- Infused with lily extract that helps tighten pores and calm oily skin.
- Contains bamboo powder to absorb oil keeping skin fresh and shine-free through heat and humidity.
- Perfect combination of powder and treated pigments to deliver a smooth matte finish.
- Mirror and sponge included.
you are to apply the powder on top of your foundation to mattify your look, set your makeup and get rid of any shine
What I really like about the powder is that you can actually wear it directly without the need for foundation and it will still give you a full coverage, flawless look.
Please avoid using your fingers to apply your powder, use a puff, a sponge or brush.
The Milani Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder would automatically absorb any oil you produce for they day without the need for you to touch up.
STEP 5 – SPRAY ON THE MILANI MAKE IT LAST SETTING SPRAY
Setting sprays are to be applied at the very end of your make routine. Setting sprays are like hair sprays for your face, these facial mists will prevent your makeup from budging for hours.
Setting sprays help keep your makeup from sliding down your face and reduce any oily buildup.
They achieve this by mattifying your entire look. They basically convert your full face makeup into matte.
One of the best setting sprays out there that is easily available in the market is the Milani Make It Last Setting Spray .
This spray will keep your makeup in place for hours (seriously, even through heat, workouts and a night out.) .Even if you sweat, hug or rub, your makeup will stay in place.
Setting sprays are to be applied at the very end of your make routine.
To apply, always shake the containers, hold bottle 8-10 inches away from face and spray in zigzag formation unto your face at the very end of your makeup routine and allow it to dry. I the situation that you end up spraying to much on your face use a fan to fan your face until it dries.
I believe that you now know the steps to take and the products to use in other to have a Flawless Makeup That Lasts All Day Long.
