We all have different preferences when it comes to makeup, but one thing we all have in common is wanting our makeup to last all day. There’s nothing worse than looking in the mirror halfway through the day & realizing your makeup is melting off your face. Luckily, there’s plenty of easy tips to help your makeup last longer.
First things first - your makeup is only as good as your skincare. Make sure you’re properly preparing your skin based on your personal needs. At the very least, always apply makeup to a clean face.

Flawless makeup starts with skincare. Staying hydrated underneath your foundation brightens your complexion & helps your look last all day. ⠀ ⠀ Our Antioxidant Boost Pomegranate + Cranberry Anti-Aging Moisturizer (previously known as our Pomegranate Moisturizer) is super lightweight & leaves your skin feeling soft & supple. It's perfect for those looking to prevent or reduce signs of aging. After cleansing & applying your serum, apply 1 to 2 pumps of your moisturizer, both morning & night. #rootpomegranate
If you moisturize before applying makeup, let your moisturizer sink in for about five minutes before you apply your makeup. Otherwise, your makeup will slip right off. Let your skin have some time to retain the moisture & soak in all the product’s benefits.
Make sure your brushes & applicators are cleaned at least once a week. The buildup of product can cause your makeup to look splotchy & uneven on the skin. Plus, if you go too long without washing your brushes, bacteria can build up & cause breakouts.
Primers help your makeup last longer by creating a smooth base for the rest of your makeup to stick to. To simplify your routine, look for primers that have multiple benefits. Our Pretty Booster Liquid Minerals acts as a four-in-one product - priming, color correcting, moisturizing & fighting the signs of aging all at once.
Everyone’s skin reacts to techniques differently, so pay attention to how your skin reacts to the products you apply. Our Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation can be worn as a powder or mixed with water or oil to create a full-coverage liquid. If you have oily skin, you might want to apply it as a powder or mix with water, & if you have normal-dry skin, you may like mixing your foundation with an oil to stay moisturized throughout the day.
Always start with minimal product, & add as you see fit (especially with our natural mineral makeup - a little truly goes a long way)! It’s much easier to add product than take it away.
Liquids & creams tend to slip easier throughout the day, so it’s always a good idea to top the cream products with a powder. For instance, if you’re applying our Pearl Powder Mineral Foundation as a liquid, you should add a light layer of the powder foundation or Organic Aloe Setting Silk over top. These powders will help keep the cream from slipping & lock it in place.
The heat & oils from your hands can quickly break down your makeup. They can also spread germs & bacteria & cause breakouts, so keep your hands away for a fresh face!
It’s pretty much impossible to end the day with makeup as flawless as it started. Because of your natural oils, the weather, what you’re doing & so much more, your makeup is always going to break down a little bit. That’s why it’s important to keep a few essentials with you to touch up throughout the day. For me, that’s my Setting Silk, 100% Lash Mascara & whatever lip product I’m wearing that day. Just do a quick touch up & your makeup will be looking good as new!

The Pretty Everything Soap has become my number one staple for cleaning. I clean my makeup brushes, use it as my laundry soap, and dilute it for use as a spray all-purpose cleaner.
Awesome tips, thank you!
I didn’t know you could mix the foundation powder with an oil to increase moisture! This will be perfect during Iowa’s cold and dry months!
