This is an easy question to answer, and I think that people have heard the answer, but they’re not sure whether to believe it.
How can you make your makeup last longer?
Just use a primer!
How can a primer help? Well it absorbs oil before it gets to your makeup, and once it’s absorbed all the oil that it can, then the excess gets to your makeup and it gets absorbed by that. Think of it as a line of defense that comes before your makeup.
There’s no guarantee that your skin won’t look oily later in the day, but hopefully it should be flawless for a little longer than usual. There are tons of great primers out there and almost every line has one. I particularly like Prescriptives’ Flawless Face Primer because I can use it on the days that I don’t want to wear makeup and it makes my skin look glowy and fresh.
