Q: My makeup always looks great right after I’ve applied it but after a few hours it fades. How do you make your makeup last throughout the day?
A: The answer may surprise you…whether the product says “long-wearing” or not, you can keep your makeup looking fresh from dusk ’til dawn by using proper application techniques. The greatest trick I have learned over the years: Loose powder is your complexion’s best friend!
• Concealer-Gently dot concealer and blend using your finger or concealer brush around the under-eye area. Seal coverage by lightly sweeping the area with a small powder brush dusted with sheer, loose powder.

• Cream Blush-I am a firm believer that less is more…especially with cream products. Because of its consistency, it is the nature of cream blush to move on the face. One way to prevent this from happening is to apply a dusting of sheer loose powder over the cheeks after you have applied the blush to keep it where it belongs-on your cheeks.
