When I first put makeup on in the morning it looks great, but through the day I can see it start to dull and my face begins to look flat. Any products or suggestions on how to prevent this?

Hello :)

Your blush and bronzer are the first things to start fading, this is because your base aka your foundation is slowing breaking down as the day goes on. You want to create a long wearing base so any products you apply over it will last. You do this by using a foundation primer, long wearing foundations, powder, translucent powder. 

Try long wearing foundations like

  • Covergirl 3 in 1 Outlast
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear (or their Light version for less coverage)
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hr Foundation

It might also just be your current products. Some blushes and bronzers just arent that long wearing. You could also go for more long wearing bronzers and blushes like

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer
  • Too Faced 16 Hr Wear Bronzer
  • Rimmel Natural Waterproof Bronzers
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Blush
  • The Balm Instain Powder Blush

Laying powder over creams will dramatically help your blush and bronzer stay on longer too! Apply a light layer of a cream bronzer and blush and top it with a powder bronzer and blush. You can even use lipstick as a cream blush or a base for powder blush!

Hi I recently received a $25 gift card from Sephora and I'm at a loss for what to get. I am not looking into foundation, concealer, eye shadows/palettes, mascaras as I recently bought these prior to receiving the card. I was wondering if you had any other recommendations. Thank you <3

I’d recommend either an every day blush, every day lip shade or a primer! This way you can get a product you can use daily and get your money’s worth! Any every day blush and lip product really depends on your skin tone and preferences so I can’t really recommend specific shades but i’ll list a few of my Sephora favorites :)

Fresh Tinted Sugar Lip Treatment $22. Personally I love shade shades Rose and Tulip! I looove these tinted balm/lip treatments as every day lip colors because they actually moisturize and you can get a sheer or more intense color depending on how much you apply.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes $35. I now own 3 and i’m obsessed with them! They never look over done it always just adds the perfect flushed look to the cheeks. They blend flawlessly and have a beautiful finish not too matte or too shimmery. 


Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes $26. I love these blushes when i’m going to be out all day. These are super long lasting, pigmented and the shade selection is awesome. 

Since I have dry skin what would you recommend for face products ? Such as foundation, bb cream etc...
