    It doesn’t matter how fabulous the shade of lipstick is or how silky smooth the foundation – if it’s not long lasting make-up then it’s not worth it! Because when hot flushes hit, our make-up tends to slide – never a good look. Not to mention when the summer heat takes over and all that warmth and humidity causes major make-up leakage. Re-applying make-up throughout the day is a real hassle and means that you’ll go through your make-up products twice as fast.

    But don’t fret, long lasting make-up is at hand. Items such as fixer sprays keep your make-up in place and looking perfect for hours, saving precious time touching-up patchy foundation or smudged eye liner. There’s nothing worse than having spent time and effort applying your make-up, only to have it all smear off before the afternoon.

    The key to keeping your look fresh and fabulous all day is to invest in beauty products that go the distance. Primers, worn beneath your make-up, are ideal for prolonging foundation wear as well as smoothing out imperfections such as visible pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and oily skin, providing a smooth base for foundation application.

    But primers aren’t the only make-up buys that will last the long-haul – now there is also new technology in make-up that means everything from our foundation to our eyeliner and lipstick can stay put all day. There is even a new waterproof bronzer that will give you a gorgeous glow all day and night long. Who needs summer sun when you can fake a year-round glow?

    So whether you prefer a perfect matte complexion or a luminous dewy glow, a smokey eye or a bold lip, we can help you find your perfect long-lasting make-up…
