long lasting!

okay well the problem with me is that for some reason my makeup never stays on my face long :\

so i'm looking for something (i'm having a brain fart and can't remember what it's called) that helps keep your makeup on.

Barrier spray? Mehron makes a good barrier spray. A few of my customers have purchased the spray and really like it.

There're also eyeshadow primers and sealants, if that's what you mean. Amphigory carries some, and they're pretty common in the vast world of daily cosmetics, too. I know Urban Decay has an eyeshadow sealant as well, for a specific brand.

I would have to suggest fixer spray also, and you can purchase Kryolan fixer spray from the Cosworx store under the Kryolan make up section. Or you can search for any other theatrical stores that sell it.

Just wondering if there is an alternative to fixing spray?

I had every intention of buying fixing spray but now I can't because the order wont get to me in time for the costume. My friend is going as Hidan and we had to settle for really crappy body paint from a party store, which I know isnt going to stay on him like perfessional stuff would.
Does anyone have suggestions for an alternative household fixer spray..I was thinking hairspray. Has anyone every tried that before?..

SillySirinda, if there is a theater or costume shop nearby, you can probably purchase fixer spray there. Or you purchase fixer spray from the websites below. A really good fixer spray is Ben Nye's "Final Seal":

, I've heard that you can find small bottles of fixer spray at "Party City." Check your phone book or google map for costume or theater shops near you. Good luck.

Benihime, are you talking about regular, everyday make-up? If so, you can get a translucent powder for it. You can also purchase a lipstick sealant. One lipstick sealant that's supposed to be good is Lip Chic, which you can find on ebay.

I agree with verdatum using a fixer spray. Use a Primer first then the Fixer spray then your makeup/foundation. It keeps the makeup on all day long lasting and you won't sweat through the makeup either. I've tried and it works.

Will the fixing spray prevent make up from smearing?

When I was Azure Kite last Anime USA, I put on some red crayon markings. Turns out the make up was smeared all over my cheeks halfway through the day. I don't want the same thing to happen for Haseo...

I was reading in a different thread about using a light spraying of hairspray. Not enough to turn your skin sticky, but aim it up from below and just mist your face. I don't know, it works for pencil drawings.

I know it's been suggested but I'm completely against the hairspray, seriously. Do not do it. If you're prone to getting acne rather easily then it'll clog up your pores like no tomorrow. Get a proffesional Barrier Spray.

Ben Nye sealing powder in white is my secret. It's INSANE how well this will make your makeup stay. I dance in two pairs of tights, two huge petticoats, a corset, and undershirt, a wig, and a headdress, so I sweat like it's nobody's business, and my makeup is completely untouched by the end of performace; and our choreography is not at the least simple or calm, at one point of our show we're monsters jumping on props growling, harassing the audience, crawling, etc, so it's physically demanding, and the sealant powder makes the (really really heavy) make up stay on perfectly!
