Getting your makeup to last all day is one thing, but making it look flawless the entire time is another. And this, K-beauty totally understands. Because as good they are with skin care, a melt-proof base is a specialty, too!
Just ask Korean makeup artist Park Hye Min, who's also known as Pony online. As a frontrunner in the Korean beauty community, she's known for her pro-level tips that are incredibly easy to follow. Her two million YouTube subscribers can attest to this!
In a new collaboration with Clinique, Pony shows us two looks for different occasions. The first look is a lightweight daily makeup style, while the other is a long-lasting look for a hectic work day.
For the second look, Pony creates a flawless and budge-proof base. But instead of recommending primers, she reiterates the importance of proper skin prep.
"If you think that your makeup won't set properly because your skin is too dry, it's good to leave the moisturizer on your face like a [mask] pack," says the makeup artist. Let the product sink in for a few minutes and proceed with your foundation and concealer.

As for sealing in your makeup, the YouTuber has a genius trick. You only need two things for it: your favorite face mist and a setting powder.
"In order to have longer-lasting coverage, spray mist all over your face then gently pat it in to let the moisture absorb," she says. Then, use a sponge to pat powder onto your skin and set your makeup. "Not only does this give moisture and coverage, but [the makeup] lasts longer this way."
