Q&A With Salon and Spa

It's Q&A time with Salon and Spa. We received the following question from a longtime reader,

Dear Salon and Spa:
Why does my makeup ware off by noon? I have tried everything and nothing is working. Help!
Cindy-Denver, Co

Dear Cindy:
Thank you for your question. This particular issue is one the many women struggle with. The #1 rule for makeup application is cream on cream, powder on powder. Now, what does this mean? Well, most people do not realize that makeup must have a base to grab on to. If you are using a powder shadow or blush and do not have a powder base, it will be off by noon. This is because the oils in your skin or the moisture in your foundation will soak up the powder products. So before you use your powder colors, set your face with a powder of choice.

On the Opposite end of the spectrum, if you are using cream colors, you must have a cream base to work on or they will become streaky and uneven. Always remember you Base must be the Same as your products, then you will have makeup that will last all day!

Thanks so much for your question Cindy! Good luck in all your makeup endeavors!
