How to Make Foundation Last Longer

Use These Two Simple Tips, Get Long-Lasting Foundation

If your foundation wears off by the time you hit the break room for lunch, fret no more. Hollywood makeup artist Brett Freedman, who has worked with stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Camilla Belle (check out Camilla's beautiful Winter glow makeup look here), is also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to everyday styles, especially foundation. Recently, Brett did V star Laura Vandervoort's makeup for a Hollywood event, so for his tips on how he created a long-wearing base for the actress, just keep reading.

  1. Prep the face with an oil-free moisturizer to give the skin a supple, satiny feel.
  2. Apply a cream-to-powder foundation. Brett used Benefit Play Sticks ($34). "I applied while the face was moist with moisturizer, so once it dried, it would have a touch, more staying power," he explained. Add powder if needed, and your foundation should last well into the night.
