Been busy these past few days trying to finish up some artworks before uni begins (which will be on Sunday 😦 )
Here are some lil tips to keep your not-too-over-the-top make up, for uni, fresh without worrying about it needing to reapply!
Before apply your foundation, apply a foundation primer. The makeup will last longer with this, and your skin will look evenly colored and smooth. Also, it gives you a matte effect.
So that the makeup on wide areas hold better, make sure you cleansed your skin properly first off. Apply your foundation/powder or whatever; then apply a bit of powder blush onto your temples, so that it’ll give you a nice , natural, look for the entire day.
No more Panda Eyes! Apply Eye Gel and an eye shadow base/primer foundation for the mascara, eye shadow, and eye liner, to keep it from smearing. The Eye Gel will stop the eye makeup from “crawling” into your eyes, and the eye shadow base/primer will hold the color of the eye shadow you decide to apply, way better. For bright eyes, apply a bit of light eye shadow on the inner corner of your eyes.
Blush will give you a “Good-Mood-Booster-Freshness”. Apply a cream-blush on the highest of your cheeks and then blend it, I can’t stress this enough, blend it. After that, dust on some of your powder blush ! Don’t overdo!
To keep your kissable lips-look as long as possible, firstly apply a bit of foundation over your lips, then powder up your lips off slightly, then finally apply your lipstick. Finish off by powdering your lips a bit once more, then applying lip gloss to make them shine!
Firstly, hide any blemishes with a concealer, then also apply the foundation steps here, but make sure to go down to your neck and then make the make-up fade away, so that it doesn’t give you a foundation “ring”
For on the go:
- If you have a shiny face while on the go, pat it with an “Oil Control Paper” which’ll mattify your complexion!
- With a Make-Up Fixing Spray, your make-up will hold longer and will be wipe-proof as well!

And for those, like myself, who don’t really care that much about their make-up looking perfect – Enjoy university! And wish you a great semester!
