Have you ever gotten home from a long day out and noticed your makeup has sweat down your face, practically disappearing? I have, and let me tell you, it’s frustrating. 

Over the years, I’ve experimented with various primers, face sprays, and makeup brands to find the best ones that will stick to my face. I’ve discovered multiple products that have helped drastically; however, one thing changed my makeup routine forever, and everyone needs to know about it.

After I go in with each layer and use my setting spray, I set my makeup with a fan. That’s right, a small makeup fan for 15-30 seconds after I spray my face between each layer: foundation, setting spray, fan, concealer, setting spray, fan, cream blush, setting spray, fan, etc. 

The fan has helped each layer of makeup seep into my skin along with the setting spray, resulting in long-wear makeup. It barely takes any extra time and drastically increases my makeup’s wear. 

The best part is that fans barely cost anything. If you’re sick of your makeup not staying on your phase, try the fan method and thank us later!
