Some women have resigned themselves to clothes covered in makeup. But if you're tired of foundation-smeared tops, changing your wardrobe isn't necessary. You can take a few steps to prevent skin-coloured blotches from ruining your style.
Wear a Robe or Smock While You Get Ready
Apply your makeup in a robe or clothing you don’t actually plan to wear that day. This seems simple, but it really does make all the difference. It doesn't take that long to slip into and out of something protective.
If you're wearing something with a tight collar, such as a turtleneck, put it on first. Otherwise, you're sure to find makeup on your top after you pull it over your freshly made-up face. Because a robe won't reach your neck, stuff a couple of hankies into your collar until you're finished with your cosmetics routine.
Look for Foundations With Staying Power
Ensure your makeup is formulated to remain on your face for as long as possible. Long-wear liquid, stick, and cream foundations generally have better staying power, with sticks and creams at the top of the list.
Choose a formulation that's specifically advertised not to budge all day. Such makeup is less likely to transfer to your clothing. Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Long-Wear Foundation is a solid formula that won’t rub off, all day long.
