rimmel stay matte primer

Broke Hoe Tips

Which I discovered by accident

1- ELF mineral infused primer is a dream ($6)
2- Rimmel Stay Matte foundation is great for full coverage and feels weightless ($6)
3- Wet n Wild photo finish setting spray makes your makeup waterproof and crying jag proof ($4)
4- Maybelline pumped up Mascara is tear proof (just don’t rub your eyes– use a tissue to dab at your tears) ($8? I think? May have been $9)

All this for super cheap at CVS enjoy my fellow broke girls

Hi, I've been having a problem when I apply my makeup it always seems to not set right and transfers to everything. I have oily skin and use Estée Lauder Double Wear, and I use Rimmel stay matte primer. I always set my foundation with translucent powder but even changing the products never seems to help :(

Hello! :)

It seems like you’re doing all the right steps and using all the right products so a few things could be going wrong. How you prep the skin, your skin care, how you apply foundation, etc. 

Are you applying a moisturizer and letting it sink in before hand? 

  • Moisturizer will help all your base products go on more smoothly and have something to stick to. Without a moisturizer it just sitting on your skin and can transfer more easily, think of moisturizer as the glue! For oily skin I suggest a gel moisturizer like Garnier’s new gel moisturizer and let this sink in for about 10 to 15 minutes before applying makeup. Letting your moisturizer sink in with let it sink into the skin and help your makeup last longer and look better.

Are you exfoliating your skin?

  • If your skin is blotchy with uneven patches your foundation is a lot less likely to stick to it. Exfoliating once to twice a week will give your skin a smooth canvas so your foundation will set better and look better!

Are you buffing in your foundation?

  • It’s best to use a flat top or dense foundation brush to really buff and blend the foundation into the skin. This process may take a bit of time but you really want to press and blend the foundation into the skin so it’s not just sitting on top of the skin. When it’s just sitting on top of the skin it’s a lot more likely to transfer and move around. Using your hands, a sponge or a traditional foundation brush doesn’t always buff and press the foundation into your skin like a more dense, flat top brush. 

Try pressing powder into your skin.

  • Instead of dusting translucent powder over your skin, press and push the powder into your skin. This sets the foundation and really presses the powder into the foundation instead of just over the skin. 

Let your products set before applying another.

  • Try to avoid applying all your products back to back. Let your primer set before apply foundation, let your foundation set and dry before apply powder. This lets your products set properly before applying to the next step. I’d say give each product about 2 to 3 minutes of setting time before moving on!
