5 Must-Know Beauty Tips to Look Fresh From Day to Night

Heat, humidity, and A/C all take their toll on our makeup, meaning touch-ups are needed more often. Luckily, there are some quick-fix cheats to help you look fresh from day to night. Here are our five must-know beauty tips that will keep you looking flawless for longer.

 

 

1. It’s all about the base

Prepping your skin with a quality base is an essential extra step to keep your makeup in place all day long. It’s also the key to achieving a glowing, unblemished finish. A primer works to fill in fine lines and pores, providing a smooth, even surface for your makeup to cling on to. Choose from colourless primers or shades to complement your skin tone. Look for primers that also moisturise to quench A/C parched skin with an extra hydration shot.

2. Get your daily fix

Spending hours in front of the mirror perfecting your contours could be all in vain if you don’t fix it in place once you’re done. That’s where a setting spray becomes your number one beauty friend. All you need to do is lightly mist a fixing spray over your face. It sets your make-up in place and prolongs hold, so it’s still in place when it’s time to leave the office.

3. Less can be more

The more makeup you wear, the more time you’ll need to spend during the day touching it up. Apply your daytime look more sparingly if you want to look like you’ve only just done it. A more natural looking base is also the perfect canvas to work on for your day into night look. Simply head to the ladies restroom to layer on your evening make-up and you’re ready to party.

For a natural barely-there make-up look, try a tinted moisturiser like The Balm. It contains skin-saving SPF too for added protection without weighing skin down.

4. The eyes have it

Humidity, sweat, tears; any type of moisture is going to make mascara start to slide. If you want to avoid sporting panda eyes by dinnertime, you’ll need to invest in a waterproof mascara with real staying power. Be warned though: you need to work fast with waterproof mascara to avoid clumping and flaking. So apply in quick, light layers before the formula starts to dry.

5. Boost your bouffant hair style

Does your hair look full and silky smooth after a blow-dry and then revert to the frizz or flat look, the moment you step out of the door? There are some things you can do to keep it beautifully bouncy for longer. Always make sure your hair is completely dry before you start styling. Any moisture left in the hair will make it instantly flop back flat. 

Prepping your hair with an intensive moisture mask can also help to banish the frizz, and try not to over wash hair. Concentrate shampoo at the roots, as stripping the ends of natural oils will also make hair more frizzy.
