White clothes are the worst to wear when you want to look good with a full face of makeup. For many, makeup comes before they wear their clothes, and that already poses a big problem when you have to pull your top over your head. Even if you are already wearing your clothes before you do makeup, the fallout may still stain the white cloth. As you proceed with your day, your sweat may also cause that icky brown stain.
The problems make you feel the opposite of beautiful. Thankfully, you can keep makeup off your clothes by doing the following:
Preparing your skin
A face toner for oily skin and a primer are not just there to make your makeup routine more expensive. They serve very important purposes. The face toner balances the pH level of your skin, while the primer makes sure that makeup adheres to your face better. That means more makeup for its intended purpose and less fallout on your clothes.
Moisten your eyeshadow applicator
Eyeshadows in powder form can be so pigmented that you just need a small amount to paint your eyelids. However, there is a good amount that goes to your clothes in the form of fallout. This can be prevented if you dab your applicator in water, moistening it so that the powder will adhere to it better. This also makes the color pop, which means your makeup look will be even better.
Use a finishing powder
Just like a primer, a finishing powder also holds an important place in your makeup arsenal. This product helps keep your makeup in place, so that they will not melt into your sweat and stain your clothes. If you don’t have a finishing powder, a makeup setting mist can also do the trick. The choice between the two sometimes depends on what works better for your skin type.
Wear a makeup bib
This will be the smarter choice if you don’t want to change anything in your makeup routine. This simply means wearing a tissue or handkerchief over your going-out clothes so that all the fallout from your makeup application will go here. Just remember to remove this bib when you go out if you don’t want to look like a fool in public. You can also wear a tissue over the neckline of your top, but make sure this is not easily visible so that you will not have those brownish stain spots at the end of the day.
Blot throughout the day
As mentioned, the sweat you produce throughout the day causes stains on your clothes. The oil your pores produce also contributes to your makeup melting and mixing with sweat. One way to control the oil is to use a blotting paper throughout the day. Whenever your skin is oily enough, blot the oil to prevent this from sticking.
You may not have been wearing makeup for over a year, but now that we’re close to getting back out there, you’ll want to look impeccable in anything you wear. And if you’re wearing white, that means being extra careful.
