How to apply the foundation so that it lasts all day in our sessions of modelling

The previous care of the skin and the use of primers are absolutely essential in the models .
A few days ago, we talked about the difficulty of finding the foundation that best suits the wishes and needs of each one at all times. If you are looking for a matte or luminous finish, natural or visibly worked, with high or low coverage ... However, we did not mention another crucial aspect and that is that, unfortunately, it is not enough to get the perfect makeup base to obtain a satisfactory result: You also have to know how to apply it. And this does not only consist of distributing it evenly over the entire face and making it look pretty, but also ensuring that it stays as long as possible. Silvia Pellissa, Creative Director of Nyx Cosmetics, and Yael Maquieira, professional makeup artist, share their basic tricks to achieve it. 

The first of them, how could it be otherwise, has to do with skin pre-care. If, in itself, its previous state is decisive in the final result, it is even more so in the duration that we expect from it. In the words of Silvia Pellissa: “skin care is always essential, whether you apply makeup or not. Taking care of our skin and having proper habits is a gift and we will immediately notice the results in the short and long term ”. For example, if we have dehydrated skin, it is likely that it absorbs the treatment part of the foundation too quickly and, therefore, since the pigment remains on the surface, it will last less time in its place. And vice versa: on excessively oily skin, sometimes it is difficult to get the products to settle properly and to survive intact over the hours. 

In addition to the facial care routine, there is another basic product to help us prepare our skin: the primer (commonly known by its English name, primer). The function of this type of cosmetics is mainly to prepare the skin so that the makeup sits in the best possible way on it. For this, it is necessary to choose it according to the characteristics of each skin type, since there are endless options on the market for different needs: dry, oily, reddish skin, with open pores, wrinkles, dull .. According to Silvia Pellissa, it is important to keep in mind that the first one will never be a substitute for the treatment, but rather a complement. “It can be to complement a need of your skin or to achieve a specific finish. For example,If you have dehydrated skin and makeup never holds you up and it goes away in areas, we would have to provide a primer that helps prevent dehydration. Like the Hydra Touch Primer, which infuses the skin with an extra amount of water, thus helping to avoid its loss so quickly ”, he explains. In the event that your skin is completely balanced and that what you are looking for is a primer simply so that the makeup lasts hours and hours (for special occasions such as a wedding or a show, for example), Silvia Pellissa recommends a product “that is 100% indicated for a final objective: durability and a matte result, such as the Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer, which is waterproof and resists the irresistible ”.Like the Hydra Touch Primer, which infuses the skin with an extra amount of water, thus helping to avoid its loss so quickly ”, he explains.

As for the makeup base, if you are looking for one that gives you the greatest possible durability, Yael Maquieira recommends getting one specifically designed for this purpose. "Today there are many options of long duration and of different types, although it is true that, generally, this type of foundation is usually a little dry and does not suit all skin types," he explains. The main problem, he comments, is that “expression lines can sometimes crack or mark expression lines more easily than other types of bases. Although, if we really want to opt for one like this, we can use tricks like rehydrating the skin from time to time with thermal water or with a moisturizing spray, ”says the makeup artist. Among his favorites of this type, highlights Teint Idole Ultra Wear, from Lancôme; Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation, by Bobbi Brown; Lingerie de Peau, by Guerlain; and Nars' Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation.


The format of the base, meanwhile, does not directly influence its duration. Thus, the ideal is to opt for one or the other depending on the specific needs of each type of skin. As a general recommendation, Yael Maquieira recommends "fluid bases for dry and combination skin and, in powder, only to seal or for very oily skin", although the state of each skin at that time should be analyzed. “Personally, I am more of fluid and powder sealed bases later. I think this way they last much longer ”, he adds. What must be taken into account is the type of tool used to apply it, since it is also a fundamental part of the process. According to Silvia Pellissa, "lighter fiber brushes tend to help lighter textures create blurred effects, and thicker brushes tend to favor thicker or more coverage textures." Sponges, for their part, allow the creation of different covers depending on the quantity of the product and the way in which it is applied, but, as the creative director explains, "as a general rule they adapt the product by creating more coverage".

Once the base is applied, the next step to prolong its duration is to seal it with powder. But beware: only in the areas that require it. "Not because we put more powder on the makeup will last longer," says Silvia. “You only have to apply it in the areas where it is necessary, such as the fins and the tip of the nose, the forehead or the chin, and it is good to always leave areas of the skin unsealed to have more organic finishes. In the area of ​​the dark circles, it is better to apply it with a very light brush and without saturating it, to fix the concealer, ”he added.

At this point, we would have one last step: seal everything well with a fixing spray. Yael ensures that she applies them absolutely always, on all skin types, since they help to keep makeup intact for longer. And Silvia Pellissa sums it up as follows: “Each product that we have talked about, by itself, does not work miracles. But they all complement and reinforce each other to achieve a more optimal and professional result. In addition, sprays leave makeup as more integrated into the skin, and it is a very pleasant sensation. ” .
