In college, I would often cake my face with makeup, only to have it smudged before even I set foot into class, the gym (yes, I used to wear makeup at the gym) or the bars. It took until my senior year for it to click with me that I needed to change my makeup and skincare routine, in order for my face to look and feel more refreshed.
Waterproof eyeliners and mascaras
These are an absolute pain to remove, but they make for cleaner-looking photos, sans smudgy eyes.
My face feels bare, if I don’t do a quick wash of light setting powder to mattify my (usually shiny, and not in a good way) face.
At the end of the day, less is more
Rotating between heavier and lighter makeup days, your face will thank you, as you give it some time to breathe in-between makeup looks!
