Foundation can be very sneaky, sly even. You know — there one minute and gone the next. If you can relate, then it sounds like you're having problems getting your foundation to stay put. The solution? The power couple combo of primer and finishing powder. Primer goes on after moisturiser (and sunscreen), before any makeup products. You can apply it with a clean foundation brush or a makeup sponge, but be sure to let it sink in and do its job before you go over with foundation. Finishing powder should be the very last step of your daily makeup routine — the finale, if you will. The last curtain call! That trusty translucent powder will set your makeup so it doesn't go anywhere. Ready for beauty school, ladies?
