you probably are using low quality makeup. Use something like Mac cosmetics, they stay on forever. Also, are you applying too little? And are you talking a specific area…such as eyeshadow, or all makeup in general? lipstick/gloss/chapstick is the only thing that usually doesn’t stay on forever. instead of carrying all makeup, just carry a compact case of powder, that helps look “fresh” and doesn’t take much space either.

There is a product I forgot what its called but you can get it from sephora or macys from a skincare line called benefit. Basically its $12 and it is a liquid that you put ontop of your eyeliner,lipstick, eyeshadow etc to make it last longer

Sounds like a mix of cheap makeup and facepalms…

Use a primer, this will help, regardless of the quality of make-up used. BUT, as others have said, better quality make-up does generally last longer

get an evian spray and spray it over your face when you feel you’re not looking fresh. It will freshen it up instantly.. it really helps. Its a very small bottle so it will fit perfectly in your purse.
