Stay All Day Series: Over and Under

Success on Stilettos, a Cincinnati style blog; how to make your makeup stay all day

Last week, I shared the first post in a series about making your makeup stay all day. As mentioned, I had oily/combination skin growing up, and my makeup would be gone in just a few hours – SO frustrating, plus it felt like a colossal waste of money.

Since its taken me years to get my combo to something that really works for me, I wanted to share my favorite products.

Under:

  • Urban Decay Vitamin Infused B6 Complexion Prep Spray – I use this from time to time after washing my face (it works as a toner, too). I like that it mattifyes my skin.
  • Kopari Coconut Rose Toner – I actually got this after I shot these products, so no photo here, but I’ve become a big fan of this. It tones skin without leaving it feeling too dry. Plus the smell is amazing!
  • Tarte BB tinted primer (with SPF 30) – I love this stuff. There is absolutely NOTHING oily about it. It even feels matte when it comes out of the tube. I use this after washing, toning and moisturizing. (Pro tip: Generally, I will wash, tone and moisturize then go make breakfast so everything has a chance to soak into my skin before applying makeup. This helps my skin not feel so oily.) I’ll also use this on days I don’t feel like doing my makeup for the added SPF and for how even it makes my skintone.
  • Cover FX Mattifying Primer with anti-acne treatment – Shoutout to my girl Shivalicious for turning me on to this stuff a few years ago. It quickly became my mattifying go-to. It has definitely helped my skin!
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Priming Potion – This stuff is straight up MAGIC for me. I use this every day I wear eyeshadow. My lids stay perfectly in-place ALL DAY. Not even a little slippage. I can even leave my eye makeup on during a workout (for the record, this is not my normal practice, but hey, sometimes you have places to be after a workout) and it stays in place, no matter how sweaty I am.
