How to Set your make up professionally so that it lasts all day

Ok,
so you have found your perfect base and you have concealed in all the important places (see my previous blog) - now you need to set your make up so that it lasts all day.
My next video shows you how to do this;


Nearly all powders that you can buy at a cosmetic counter come in light, medium and dark - you will find that ALL of these colours are wrong for you. 
If you have discovered your perfect foundation and concealer colour then why ruin it by putting a powder on top that will turn your face the wrong colour, and 8 times out of 10 too orange?

I use a colourless (or White) powder which you can get either from supercover or dermacolor.
I use this on all skin colours not matter how light or dark as it does not change the colour of your skin.  Do not be scared to use this on black skin - it doesn't leave you looking ashy, it will blend perfectly away.

It is best to apply your powder using a powder puff - this way you can 'press' the powder into your skin, setting your foundation and concealer to last all day.  Better still, the dermacolor powder makes your make up waterproof and is therefore set in the rain, or if you choose to go swimming!

Once you have pressed in your powder with a puff all over (eyelids and lips included) you then need to take a big powder brush and sweep over the entire face to brush off your excess powder.

Now that your base is set, you are ready to put the rest of your make up on.
