So I had to leave straight from work to make it to the event--that meant I had to do my makeup before 8 am and expect it to last 12 hours...with two little girls around as well. Luckily I had some tricks up my sleeve to keep my makeup refreshed, and I thought they might help y'all too! Grab your makeup bag and let's get into it, y'all:
1--For makeup creases under the eyes, take the tiniest amount of eyeshadow primer, rub between clean fingertips and gently press under the eyes.
2--For creasing eye makeup, take the brush you used to blend (or it can be clean) and buff out the crease.
3--Mascara starting to flake? Rub some plain lip balm (the brand is up to you) either onto lashes via clean fingertips or rub some on a spoolie (clean mascara wand) and brush through.
4--Out of oil blotting sheets? The best on-the-go solution I've found are napkins from Starbucks. Just press on the face to absorb oil. Another option would be toilet paper covers, but I've done bacteria tests on them (#beautynerd here) and trust me, those aren't going on my face.

5--Another option (and this is what I do for bridal or professional makeup) is take a beauty blender and wrap it in a tissue. About 1 layer is fine of tissue. Blot that on the skin to remove oil without disturbing makeup.
BONUS TIP: Store your beautyblender in a plastic toy egg for clean storage!
6--I don't really use powder that often on myself, and the rare times I do have powder the dang powder has exploded in my bag or some sort of disaster. So instead I use primer to refresh my makeup. Just like I did with the eye primer, I will take the tiniest amount between lean fingertips and press onto my face where needed. It helps mattify and helps to hide pores as well. Just a tiny amount, y'all.
7--Yes, I carry some dang dryer sheets in my bag! Straight up, sometimes I've have found them in my pants leg or shirt after putting my clothes on. Real life, y'all. But I have dozens of uses for them, such as using one to remove the frizzies from hair or to freshen it up scent-wise. Just a quick swipe is all you need.
I could go on and on, y'all, but I want to know:
How do you refresh your makeup?
