You are going to see some tips on how to make makeup last, all of which are easy to include in your care routine and promise to leave you looking beautiful all day. For your makeup to last, we need two factors: the right product and the right technique.

Prepare your Skin

The first step to make a lasting makeup is to prepare the skin with, first of all, a good cleanser tool and soap. The Ultrasonic Facial Cleanser gives you a radiant complexion, it rejuvenates your skin with the efficient scrubber device. Easy-to-use, reliable, and durable, SnowySkin delivers gentle, yet efficient deep facial cleanse.

The ultra-hygienic silicone bristles paired with a deeply enjoyable ultrasonic vibrations gives the skin a gentle but deep exfoliation, which expertly removes 99.5% of dirt and oil from the skin while providing a pro prep for enhanced absorption of your favorite skincare or to receive the next products for a glowing makeup.

The next step of skin preparation is the moisturizer and primer to receive the products. A prepared, hydrated skin is a fundamental step for makeup to last and not crease throughout the day. The use of a primer is very important, as it evens out the texture of the skin and guarantees a velvety appearance.

Adopt the right technique for your face

 In addition to choosing products suitable for your skin type, we recommend using a foundation or a long-lasting BB cream. To know more about your skin type, read our article about skin types and know how you can take the right care.

To apply these products, it’s recommended using a damp sponge, as it absorbs less product and provides a natural finish. The sponge guarantees uniform coverage, leaving a natural skin look, and you can concentrate where the skin needs more product. We go on tapping.

You can also use a sponge to finish off the concealer, but to apply it, you can use your own fingers. The temperature of the hands helps the skin to absorb this product better, and thus prevents it from cracking.

Seal the Skin

Sealing the skin with a translucent powder is essential for makeup to last longer, after all, it helps to set the products and controls the shine caused by oiliness. So it’s recommended to remove the excess powder from the brush and apply it to the T-zone, which is usually the area where we have the most oiliness.

Fixing Mist

The icing on the cake for make-up to remain intact for a long time is to finalize the production with a setting mist. To guarantee this beautiful and fresh look all day, the fixing mist is one of the most important tools.

Keep your Face Clean and Healthy

Makeup is a great ally to enhance our beauty, but it is essential to remove it correctly so as not to have future problems, as products clog pores and can cause blemishes, pimples and premature aging of the skin.

So, don't even think about skipping this step or not doing it right! Even after arriving tired from work or a party, sleeping with makeup on is not a good option.

Check out essential tips and simple ways to remove makeup correctly that will help you keep your skin clean, healthy and hydrated.

Common Errors of Removing Makeup

You already understood that it's important to remove makeup correctly, but before we show you how, we want to warn you of some common mistakes that happen in this step and can harm your skin. Take a look:

1. Using products that are inappropriate for your skin

Each skin type has its particularities and needs appropriate make-up remover products:

  • Dry skin: prefer makeup remover creams or wipes that, in addition to removing make-up, also hydrate the skin;
  • Combination skin: use foam make-up removers on a daily basis and bet on biphasics for heavier makeup;
  • Oily skin: choose an oil free formula, micellar water or a cleansing oil (which works for all skins!), and avoid biphasic makeup removers.

2. Use force to remove makeup

 Forcing a cotton pad or tissue to remove makeup can harm your skin. So, use the right products and always apply them with smooth movements.

3. Repeat the same cotton on both eyes

Use different cotton for each eye, avoiding the risk of passing bacteria from one to the other.

4. Using soap or shampoo to remove makeup

These products are not designed to remove makeup and can irritate your face and leave residue on your skin.

5. Use a hand towel to dry your face

The hand towel can have many towels, so prefer to wipe your face with toilet paper or with a towel exclusively for make-up.

Now that you know what not to do when removing makeup, see the step-by-step instructions for using the products indicated to ensure a 100% clean face. Your skin will thank you! 

Micellar Water

Micellar water is a multifunctional product that, in addition to removing makeup, also tones the face and controls oiliness. It is indicated for all skin types, especially sensitive ones, as it is free of any oil, alcohol or dyes. See how simple its application is:

Apply micellar water to a cotton pad;
Let the product act for a few seconds on the makeup area you want to remove - this process softens the products, making cleaning easier;
Make smooth movements from the inside to the outside of the face, until all make-up is removed;
Use different cottons on each eye and remember to change them when they are dirty;
Repeat the process until all makeup is removed;
Enjoy the night with a clean and fresh face!

As you can see, micellar water does not require rinsing or subsequent hydration, which makes the process even easier. In addition, this wonderful product removes any type of makeup, including waterproof, so put it in your routine and ensure beautiful and healthy skin.

Makeup Remover Cream


The makeup remover cream is indicated for those with dry and sensitive skin, as in addition to removing makeup, it also hydrates - perfect, right? If this is your case, you must use this product without fear and enjoy the good results!

  • With your fingers, apply the cream all over your face;
  • Massage it in smooth movements until the makeup starts to dissolve;
  • Remove all the product with cotton or a soft toilet paper;
  • Wash your face with a facial soap, removing any make-up residue;
  • Finish by hydrating your face with products suitable for your skin type.

See? Removing makeup with the makeup remover cream is very easy and fast. So, just dedicate a few minutes of your day to using it and your face will be clean.


Makeup Remover Wipe

The makeup remover wipe is the most practical option for removing makeup, as it comes ready to use, without the need for any cotton or paper. To make it even better, there are versions of this product for all skin types, so just find yours!

  • Place the makeup remover tissue over the desired region;
  • Gently drag it from side to side so as not to injure your skin;
  • When it's dirty, turn it over and continue removing makeup with the other side;
  • As soon as the tissue comes out clean, it means that all make-up has already been removed;
  • Wait for it to dry and the process is finished!
Practical to use and store, the makeup remover wipe is a great option to have at home and in your purse. That way, you'll always be ready to take off your makeup, no matter where you are!
