I have been using moisturizing cream and primer before I put on foundation. blending it onto face in circular motions. by time it comes to 12.00 during the day it looks like I have no makeup on . I look awful any advice. (I have dry/normal skin)

Hello. You may be using too much moisturizer/ primer. You only need a very little amount as it melts into your skin as it reaches body temperature. I know that certain primers seem to "slide' off my skin if I use too much of them.

The other suggestion I have is to set your makeup with a loose powder when you are finished. Different powders serve different purposes, so look for one which is made to set your makeup. Loose is better than pressed for setting makeup.

If you are using drug store brands, they tend not to last as long as department store brands.

There are a few companies who sell "setting sprays". You use these on top of your finished makeup. I have used them with success; however, some of them tend to break me out in the hot weather.

Good luck!
