The trick is simple: Primers and setting sprays. But how do these products help keep your makeup in place? Are they enough to survive the heat and humidity of summer along with the drying and infectiously notorious pollution of the cities in winter?

 Primers
Priming is one of the first few steps that is done before applying makeup. It is like prepping your skin before putting your makeup on. The main purpose of a primer is to prepare skin for the application of makeup by creating a barrier between the product and your skin. This helps create a smooth base for your makeup throughout the day. You can also find specific primers as per your skins need that helps in minimizing the skins problems. It can blur blemishes, fine lines, uneven tones, absorb excess oils, hydrate, etc. There's a primer for every skin type and concern.

If you have an oily or combination skin, try Farmasi VFX pro camera ready perfecting makeup primer.

For dry skin try VFX pro camera ready illuminating primer in strobe cream.  

To use: Gently and evenly apply the primer all over your face using your fingertips or a makeup brush.

Setting sprays
Everyone wants their perfect makeup to last for an eternity. While eternity is not quite possible a solid 16-20 hours is. It can be disappointing to see all of your hard work smudge and rub off, which is why a setting spray is a must-have. It helps lock in all the makeup and keeps them fixed at the places it’s been designated to stay. It works like a protective coat over your makeup leaving it untouched.

Another confusion that is often present is whether finishing and setting sprays are the same. Well, they’re not. Finishing sprays help you get that well-finished look whereas a setting spray is invented to be budge-proof and keep your makeup right where you left it. Finishing sprays give you a fresh look and remove cakeiness. So, while they definitely hydrate and enhancing the makeup by reducing the requirement for touchups, they certainly do not affect longevity in any way.

Try Farmasi Time Locker makeup setting spray for a fine and even spritz.

To use: hold the bottle 6-10 inches away from the face and spray all over face in a “T” or “X” shape and let it dry. 

So, for real staying power, and to prevent any bleeding of makeup primers and setting sprays are two must-haves. No matter how the weather is or what your skin type is, primers are multipurpose and provide the perfect base for a flawless application while setting sprays to fix it all in one place extending your makeups’ life and longevity. Whatever the weather and temperature these two are definitely worth the investment for a long-lasting gorgeous makeup.
