7. Pick the Right Colors

If you want your makeup to look fresh all day, you need to first choose the right colors. When it comes to daytime/work makeup, less is always more and neutral is always better. Stick to earth tones and feel free to kick up your look with a touch of shimmer. This will result in a look that does not need to constantly be retouched and an easier day ahead.

8. Less is More

Last, but not least, light makeup is the best makeup when it comes to looking like you just applied your makeup 5 minutes ago. With summer right around the corner, don’t use heavy foundations, but BB creams instead. Avoid powder blushes and stick to a cream blush that will hold well and look better in hot weather.
