Setting Your Makeup

Here at glo we talk about the benefits of setting your makeup all the time. But unless you work in the beauty industry or just happen to live for lip gloss, chances are you might not be as familiar with the term. If this sounds like you, then allow us to share a short and simple beauty secret that could potentially solve your makeup woes—before they start.

So what is it exactly?
Setting is the process of applying a translucent powder, pigmented powder, or water-based spray to your skin after you apply your makeup. It’s meant to be a final step that ensures your makeup stays where you like it, how you like it, for as long as you like it. Depending on the type of product you choose, setting can help absorb excess oil or hydrate your skin. But overall the purpose of setting is to extend the wear of your makeup.

What should I choose?
Choose a product to set your makeup based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, choose a translucent or pigmented powder to prevent midday melt. (glo minerals Protecting Powder SPF 30, Loose Base, Pressed Base). If you have dry skin, choose a spray you can apply as often as you like to prevent flaking (glo minerals Revive, Refreshing, or Moist Hydration Mist). Or, you can choose a mist for a touch of aromatherapy regardless of skin type.

Quickly Camouflage a Tattoo

Who would have thought that what was considered a sign of rebellion just a few years ago is now decorating the lower backs, wrists, and shoulders of everyone from soccer moms to the socialites. Whether an intricate design, symbol, or loved one’s name, tattoos have gone mainstream and generally don’t carry the same stigma that they used to. Nevertheless, there are still some situations where you don’t want “I ♥ Bobby” on full display. When those pop up – like a formal event, job interview, or dinner with your conservative relatives – have these few things on hand and Bobby will be your little secret.

1. Thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin.

2. Take a peach or red pencil (Precision Eye Pencil) and outline the most pigmented areas of your tattoo to neutralize the color, then follow up with a corrective concealer(Corrective Camouflage Kit) - here’s a guide

3. Take a medium to full coverage foundation (Loose Base) and using a Kabuki or Ultra Brush begin adding layers of foundation as needed to cover.

4. Spray the area between layers of makeup with Brush Cleaner. The alcohol content in Brush Cleaner sets the makeup in place over the tattoo.

5. Finish with a generous dusting of Perfecting Powder before one last spray of Brush Cleaner.
