There’s nothing more annoying than finding the makeup you so beautifully created (for 20 minutes in the morning) halfway gone by the middle of the day. Sadly, this is one of the inevitable things that happen to any woman living in a hot and humid country like ours. But, that doesn’t have to be your case. With careful application and the right products in your kit, you can achieve a makeup look that will stay on your face throughout the day—or at least until you clock out of your office.
Scroll down for 8 fail-proof beauty tips you should practice daily if you want your makeup to last from sunrise to sunset.
1. Start with a primer.
After cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your face, apply a skin-smoothing primer that will not only make it easier for you to blend foundation, but will also help prolong the foundation on your face by at least 5 more hours.

2. Use long-wearing makeup.
If you’ve got oily skin, go for an oil-free foundation that’s light yet gives full coverage. This will absorb the oil on your skin, preventing your foundation from melting off your face. Once you’ve got this on, you can rest knowing you don’t have to bring a bottle of foundation in your bag. Less touching up, more space in your bag. It’s a win-win!

3. Always go for waterproof mascara.
You never know when it’s gonna rain or when something will make you cry. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

4. Layer your lipstick.
Just follow this order: apply concealer on your lips, then swipe your lipstick on, blot down with tissue, apply a little bit of powder, then refill your lips with the same lipstick.

5. Set your makeup with powder.
Smoothen the look of your makeup and remove any excess oil with translucent powder. Look for a product that not only targets shine but also brightens and highlights.

6. Finish with setting spray
