The TikToker offers a 12-step routine to achieving long-lasting makeup looks on hot days.
First, she applies sunscreen and lotion.
From there, she applies primer to the skin.
On exceptionally hot days, the TikToker will also add in a matte primer, she says in the video.
She says she likes the way the primer “grips the products” and helps lay everything down on her face.
Step three involves foundation and spray.
The TikToker dots her face with foundation and then sprays her face.
“The spray is critical because I feel like it helps my foundation blend a lot more seamlessly, helps it not to get stuck in one place.
“It just lays nicer,” she says as she uses a brush to smooth the product onto her face.
She also adds that if you want full coverage from your foundation, it’s best to purchase a full coverage product.
Then, during step four, she applies concealer that is two or three shades lighter than her actual skin tone.
She then sprays her face and blends the product in.
The makeup expert notes that she does not go into the crevices of her under eye on this application while blending with her brush.
But then, the TikToker applies another shade of concealer in a sixth step – this one is about three to five times lighter than her skin tone.
She waits until this application to blend concealer into her under eye, using a blender sponge.
“I blend in circular motions as I get closer to my under eye because I feel like those circular motions really help to blend the product in and around so that it’s not settling,” she says.
She repeats the circular motion process when she sets the concealer with powder.
Then, for step eight, the makeup expert moved on to her smile lines.
“You smile, take your powder, and work it right into the smile lines,” she says, adding that if you have “crazy” smile lines, to do the same thing when you apply your primer and repeat the process.
Then, she sprays her face again.
For step 10, the TikToker applies her blush.
She generally does a cream blush and then a powder blush on top, spraying afterward for good measure.
In the penultimate step, she applies Wet and Wild brown eyeliner as lip liner.
“It’s the best lip liner of all time,” she says.
Finally, the TikToker applies her lip gloss to complete her look.
She commented on the post sharing some of the products she uses in her video to achieve her long-lasting look.
The makeup expert also had a fan on hand to use between some of the steps.
