Long lasting makeup is the ultimate goal. Whatever the occasion, whether work or play, nobody wants to be reapplying their makeup mid-way through the day.
At Revolution, we have the solution. Discover the ultimate routine and products to use for makeup that lasts all day!
How Long Does Makeup Last?
There are a few factors that can affect how long makeup lasts on your face. These include:
- Skin type – Whether you have dry or oily skin can determine how long lasting your makeup is. Those with oilier skin types may notice their foundation begin to ‘slide’ down their face as the day goes on.
- Products – With this in mind, are you using products that work for your skin type? Different formulas are targeted to suit varying skin textures and levels of oiliness. So, to give your makeup the best fighting chance of staying put, ensure your skincare and makeup products are suited to your skin type.
- Environment – The environment you spend your time in (whether that’s at work, outdoors, a shopping mall, gym etc.) also affects the staying power of your makeup. Particularly humid conditions causes makeup to run, whereas aircon causes skin to dry out, taking its toll on your makeup.

Step 1 – Complete a Targeted Skincare Routine
Before you even think about picking up that makeup brush, you need to prep your skin.
A targeted skincare routine designed to promote healthy-looking skin is the essential first step to achieving long lasting makeup.
Revolution Skincare have created product ranges to suit all skin types and concerns:
Begin by cleansing to rid the skin of dirt, oil build up and impurities. A clean canvas is crucial for long lasting makeup.
Expert tip: If you struggle with uneven texture, be sure to exfoliate your skin. Our Glycolic Acid Toner is designed to gently exfoliate, cleanse and condition. Be sure to apply SPF when using Glycolic Acid, as it can increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
