Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, and today I want to show you how to apply your face powder to make it last all day. So I have my brushes. I have primer, and then of course, I have my powder. So when it comes to making your powder last a bit longer, it's really a matter of prepping your skin properly. So if you are dry, you want to make sure that you use a moisturizer and a primer. If you are oily, you want to make sure that you use an oil-free moisturizer, and maybe an anti-shine lotion or some sort of shine blocking primer. So just to show you, I'm going to put on the primer first, and you want to make sure that you just do just what you need. You don't want to put too much on if you have skin that's a bit oilier again you'll be using an oil-free or a shine blocking serum on your face first. Okay, so we're just lightly applying an oil-free primer all over and then if you have skin that tends to get a bit oily when you are applying your powder, you just want to make sure that you focus on those areas and kind of press in the powder rather than just sweeping it. You want to press in on areas such as the forehead, the nose, the chin, the areas that get oily. If you are dry, just make sure that you are getting even coverage all over the face. You can also use this pressing motion but you should be able to use fewer layers. So there you go. You have a powder application that's going to last you all day. So go out and try this, and I hope it was helpful. Thanks guys, my name is Joi.
