Makeup maintenance

Posted by on Mar 11, 2009

There are some makeup looks that take longer to maintain than they do to actually apply. So if you’re in a rush to do your makeup, don’t forget that what you do at home will have consequences for later.

Take red lips. While a strong lip is one of the quickest makeup looks to apply, it’s also notoriously one of the hardest to maintain. The time you saved at home, will easily be spent on regular lipstick checks and reapplications when you’re out.

Strong eye makeup on the other hand will set you back approximately 5-10 minutes at home blending your eye shadows into a smoky look. But when you’re out, provided the products are pigment-rich (and you’re not dancing up a sweat!), your eye makeup should last several hours without the need for any retouching.
