One of the main issues of applying makeup is when you notice that half of your makeup has rubbed onto other people's faces or shirts, your clothes, pillowcases, towels, or sheets. Fortunately, we have some excellent tips and hacks you can use to stop getting makeup stains.
The most common makeup spills are eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and foundation, and these offenders can be challenging to remove from clothing and linen. We recommend treating the stain before it has time to dry or set.
An excellent tip to remove makeup spills is to use a makeup wipe such as COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad to lift away the stain quickly. Make sure always to test spot on an area that doesn't show to avoid ruining anything delicate.
Here are five hacks on how to make your makeup transfer-proof.
1. Wear A Robe
We recommend always wearing a robe while applying your makeup. Protecting your clothes is an effective way to prevent makeup stains.
Besides, if you're wearing tight collar clothes, like a turtleneck, it's crucial to put it on first. Otherwise, you'll transfer makeup on your top. Remember to put an old handkerchief into your collar until you finish applying your cosmetics to avoid spills.
If you don't have a robe or something to protect your clothes, you can use a scarf you don't care about staining and put it over your face. Get dressed while the scarf is gently on your face. This way, the scarf will get the makeup stains and not your clothes.
2. Use Long-Lasting Cosmetics
Whenever possible, choose transfer-proof makeup products. It's wise to select long-lasting foundations, matte lipsticks, or lip tints.
Remember that using waterproof eyeliners like MACQUEEN Waterproof Pen Eyeliner is crucial if you want to prevent makeup spills.
3. Don't Forget To Use A Primer
One of the best methods to prevent makeup stains is to use a primer before applying your makeup. Primers create a protective layer between the skin and makeup, leaving the skin looking smoother and flawless.
Besides, primers make your makeup last longer. When you prepare your skin by applying primer, you're keeping your makeup transfer-proof.
We recommend using INNISFREE No Sebum Blur Primer on a clean and moisturised face to help stop makeup stains. The INNISFREE No Sebum Blur Primer works well with all foundations, mattifies, smooths, and preps your skin.
This primer reduces shine and oil while helping your foundation last for hours. It's the perfect primer when you need to control oily skin.
Also, it's an excellent idea to use a setting spray such as ETUDE HOUSE Face Blur to ensure your makeup doesn't come off. Please allow the spray to dry to reduce the chance of getting makeup stains.
4. Don't Touch Your Face
It's essential to avoid touching your face as this is the main reason why you end up with stains. This is particularly crucial when you're wearing white clothes. Keep in mind that keeping your hands away from your face can not only prevent makeup spills but breakouts.
5. Use Setting Powder
An excellent way to lock in your cosmetics is to use powder. Powders are effective for drying out makeup products faster, allowing them to adhere to your skin. A setting powder such as ETUDE HOUSE Zero Sebum Drying Powder is perfect for achieving a transfer-proof makeup look.
The ETUDE HOUSE Zero Sebum Drying Powder controls oil production helping your makeup to last all day. Use this translucent powder to set your foundation and control shine as the final step in your makeup routine.
This drying powder contains 80% mineral powder and a sebum control mix, combining a fermented bean, willow, cinnamon, and other potent ingredients. The ETUDE HOUSE Zero Sebum Drying Powder minimises oil and dries up acne and excess sebum.
Please note that you can also use powder on your lipstick. Just put a tissue between your lips and gently apply powder to help dry down the product.
Remember, the key to preventing makeup stains is always using transfer-proof makeup products, a primer, setting spray, and finishing powder for a perfect matte look. Follow these tips for achieving a fabulous and flawless look.
