Want Foundation to Last All Day?

So this won't be a full explanation on ways to make your foundation last all day. Its more of a review of a product I couldn't live without, which makes your makeup last forever.

Philosophy's The Present, is hands down the best primer on the market. The purpose of a primer is to smooth over wrinkles, pores, and imperfections, in order to create an even surface. Obviously, there are no miracle workers out there, but you want something that does its best to achieve this. This product is not even marketed as a makeup primer. Its specific purpose is to fill in all these flaws with or without makeup for a more even finish. So add makeup to the mix, and you're in for a treat. Not only does The Present achieve a smoother appearance to your face, but it is also a freaking glue for makeup!

OK, OK, a "glue" for makeup doesn't sound so appealing does it? Well, its not quite gluey in consistency, so you're OK. Although it is thicker then your average primer. You actually have to wait 2 minutes after applying, to continue with the rest of your routine. You have to let the product dry on your skin or your makeup will be a gooey, flaky, icky, mess. Also, if you apply too much, it makes your skin super shiny, which isn't exactly pretty. If you apply this product absolutely perfect, however, you will be pristine, and your makeup will last ALL DAY. No joke. Who doesn't want that? Just remember, a little goes a long way, and wait 2 minutes, and you shouldn't have any issues!

Philosophy's The Present is available at Sephora for $25.
