After applying your powder foundation or loose powder, do you find that your skin looks powdery? I sometimes do and wanted to get rid of that made up look.
Someone gave me a tip, which is to spritz a fine mist of water over your face after doing your foundation, especially powder foundation. Don’t touch it until it dries and it will set your powder foundation and make your makeup last all day.
I also remembered when I was in Hong Kong and my sister went for a Shu Uemura makeover. The makeup artist also misted her face after applying her powder foundation. So I guess its a trick makeup artists use, that we can pick up for everyday.
I tried it and it works a treat! I use Shu Uemura’s Deep Sea water because I bought a small little bottle cheap from Hong Kong. I forgot about it till now.
You can use Evian facial mist, which I might take a look at once my Shu Uemura water finishes.
But you can just use any water in a spray bottle and lightly mist your face. I’m amazed at how long my makeup can last, just by doing this little step. Try it and see for yourself.
In fact, I have since tried the Evian face mist and I dislike it. It literally feels just like spritzing water on skin and that is much cheaper! I much prefer using other brands of thermal water sprays of which I count Vichy as one of my favourites. Other people like Avene for their sensitive skin as well as Uriage, all easily available from local pharmacies (except Vichy which is no longer sold in Malaysia)
