  • after you've applied all your make-up...lightly spray it with hairspray: just hold an aresol spray can out at a distance from your face spray and kinda step into the mist. Also try not to touch your face often during the day and if your sweating pat your face with a towel rather than wiping.

  • As an esthetician and a makeup artist, I would never spray hairspray in my face - hairspray is sticky, toxic, and very drying to the skin.
    We use transluscent powder to set the makeup after application.

  • Along with PrttyMstng you can apply a face primer to 'set' the makeup before application. Use a blotter to remove any oil/sweat during the day.

  • I use Estee Lauder Double Wear or Double Matte foundation, along with a powder lightly dusted over my face and it keeps my makeup on. I also keep blotting papers in my purse to use if needed.

  • Nothing helps keep your makeup on like a good primer! I love the Magix Face Perfector from Avon. I even have oily skin and it helps with shine and my makeup lasts all day now! Its inexpensive too! www.youravon.com/dhullum use coupon code fsany for free shipping!
