I've actually always been very lucky and have never had this problem but after one of the girls from college asked me how I get my foundation to last all day it got me thinking.. how the hell do I ?
So I decided to watch some you tube videos on the topic to see did this give me a reason why my makeup doesn't budge! And then I found it..
The reasons foundation doesn't last isn't usually down to the quality of the foundation it is down to what you base your skin with and whether it is reacting with your foundation! Whether it be primer or moisturiser it can completely ruin the lasting power of your foundation if they are not compatible.
If you use an oil based moisturiser/primer such as ponds moisturiser and then use a water based foundation such as MAC's Face & Body you are asking for trouble!! As we all know in science oil and water don't mix, this applies to your face too you know!
So you don't end up looking like poor Britney up there I would advice that if you are using a water based foundation it is best to use a water based moisturiser/primer such as Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture.
And the same with oil or silicone based foundations. Most foundations out there are actually silicone based and primers such as Gosh Velvet Touch primers are also silicone based.
I would advice using both a silicone foundation and a silicone primer/moisturiser to achieve long lasting results.
I hope this has helped some of you ladies out there and you no longer have to gasp at the shock horror of having no foundation when you catch a glimse of yourself in a shop window, despite having a flawless face before you left the house!!
