Primer, powder, or setting spray?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to the Bahamas for a rave (exciting I know!) and I am looking for something that will make my makeup last, possibly all day and night (with minor touch ups if needed) through the dancing and the heat. I am in the search of a new foundation (leaning towards MUFE HD or MAC Matchmaster) but am more concerned with setting my foundation.

 

I have combination skin, oily in the T-zone after a few hours after washing and normal everywhere else. I have never used a face primer. Is this just for creating a smooth/perfecting base or does it make foundation last longer? Also, do you find that oil absorbing or matte primers extend your foundation wear? I am thinking about purchasing a translucent powder for everyday (work) makeup days? Does this extend foundation life? Any pressed powder suggestions? I am VERY interesting in try Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray? What are your thoughts? Does it make foundation stay longer? Which products or combination (not interested in using all three!) of products do you think will help make my foundation last longer? This is a lot. I know. I appreciate your responses greatly. THANK YOU!

You'll want an oil free primer or one made for oily/combo skin and yes, it can help create a nice smooth surface and extend the wear of foundation. I'd suggest oil blotting papers and maybe the UD deslick spray? Translucent loose powder can be used to set foundation as well and a pressed powder for touch ups throughout the day. There's a lot of great options, depending on which brands you prefer or want to try.

I live in kenya and here the weather can get extremy out of control and it gets really hot. i use powder to set my foundation and it works really well does not sun off my face or anything and i have mixed type of skin. but do try a primer because i think you are going to need it.

You could get the little size of UD all nighter or deslick at sephora. Where in Maryland are you? I can tell you alllll about the sephoras and ultas lol. Plus a lot of the Macy's around here have UD, too.

hmm I live in MoCo so I don't know much about B-more, but if you can make it down to Tyson's Corner in VA there sephora always has fun events..so you could have some fun and give the UD sprays a try...and ask the sephora ladies if they have any other recommendations.

Here is my personal advice

First spray the skin with a setting spray then apply a primer and then concealer, foundation... etc and complete it with a very light coat of setting powder.. this works for me every time for very hot climates

In hot climates I use antiperspirant over the whole face, makeup, set with powder and then a setting spray.

There are many setting sprays on the market and the one I find that works the best is 'Model In A Bottle' or use cheap hair spray like Aqua Net.

I am guessing here that you mean an antiperspirant spray...?

 

There is a product out there called Sweat Stop that's been around for about 8 years or so, which is a liquid. And I am guessing that you don't mean this?

 

So essentially you use a barrier product first, like you would before you would apply a full piece prosthetic appliance, yes?

Yeah, that old-school method has been done for decades and that's how setting sprays came about.

I never use sprays I use liquid or a stick, as far as the sweat stop I go right for the stuff that works Ban, apply with a sponge, when I work on people that worry about labels I will put it into a small squeeze bottle.

If I am applying large pieces, yes.

Love my Aqua Net it still works better than any of the other setting sprays.

I had never heard of using antiperspirant on my face. I will have to remember that next summer. I never put anything but eye makeup on when it is hot because of the sweat.

Right, copy that, I've seen one MUA use Arrid Xtra dry, so whatever works.

When you use this trick you can wear more makeup than a female impersonator and it still wont come off.

What I love to do is take half a tablespoon of corn starch and another half a tablespoon of mineral foundation powder, mix them both together and I make the perfect loose powder for my oily skin! I absolutely love it. It's so cheap and effective too! You can get a 16 ounces of corn starch for a dollar! Mineral Veil from Bare E. is mostly made out of finely milled corn starch.

Go for the setting spray. If you accidentally go overboard with powder, the setting spray will help reduce the appearance of cakeyness. A lot of the ladies here have recommended some of the best here.

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
