Is your makeup always running out too quickly or do you wish there were easier ways to apply it? Well, here are a couple tricks to keep your makeup lasting with just simple objects you can find around your room!

Many factors can affect the way your foundation will end up looking. I wish it weren’t so complicated, but it is. For example, if you have dry skin and your cleansing/moisturizing routine is leaving the surface of your skin flaky, foundation can make the problem more noticeable.

Alternatively, if you have oily skin and are using a moisturizer or a foundation that is too emollient, the foundation can slide right off. Even on oily skin, drying skin-care products can also cause flaking, so you could have two problems working against you even before you put on your makeup.
