Prime Time: Make Your Makeup Last

By  February 03, 2012

We’ve all dreamed of makeup that lasts all day and all night without a single smudge or any fading. Although keeping your makeup for hours on end seems impossible, you can up your chances by using a primer. Even though it’s an extra step in your beauty routine, using a primer will help hold your makeup in place so you won’t have to touch up as often later (and who has time for a million touch ups, anyway?). Try one of our favorites and runaway makeup will be a thing of the past.
