The Ultimate Long Lasting Base! (Drugstore edition)





We all have them days were we're going to be so busy or an event were touching up our makeup is the last thing on our minds! And we all want a base that will stand the test of time! Short of applyIng 20 layers of foundation and powder (cakey-ness is not the look we want) finding products that truly last can be few and far between! However, I've found a few gems in the drugstore to help us through those days!
 
To prevent makeup breakdown start of with a primer. Primer acts as glue for foundation and helps control shine through out the day. Therefore, a must! I'm loving Maybellines baby skin, anti fatigue primer (available here). Baby skin, I'm all up for that and it makes you look more awake! This is full of silicone to help fill in those pores and fine lines!

Now for foundation. The L'Oreal 24hr matte is perfect for long lasting, non cakey finish. You can check out my full review of it here. For a base with real staying power, powder will seal the deal! Maybellines Matte maker is finely milled and blends seamlessly into skin to get the job done without looking cakey (available here). Its also matifying as the name suggests, to really keep that base in place. Go easy though as its easy to build up and look dusty!

Does anyone else have any tips on making makeup last all day?

Until next time...
