If your makeup seems to fade before the day is through, melts away on hot and humid days or transfers to clothing, here are tips to make it longer lasting.

Before you apply your makeup:

1. Make sure that your face is cleansed and free of surface oil and dirt.

2. Use makeup for your skin type.

3. You can choose makeup with long-lasting formulas, but some long-wear foundations can be heavy and work and feel better in cooler months. In warmer weather lighten up on the makeup. The layering of too many products or heavy products can cause you to perspire.

4. Use a makeup primer before applying foundation.

One long lasting foundation is Avon ExtraLasting Liquid Foundation.
