Im pretty useless when it comes to make up and dont wear loads. I currently use Maybelline foundation and then No17 Matte powder but can anyone give any tips on how to stop my make up rubbing off on tops or jacket collars!! 🤔

Fixing spray or better foundation. Double wear by Este Lauder will not come off for love nor money.

I quite like the Este Lauder double wear foundation but find it a bit heavy for every day wear. Ill have a look into fixing sprays...always thought they might be a con 😂 Thanks Algebraic

Fixing spray or if I'm being lazy or have run out of fixing spray I mist my face with hairspray - eyes closed though! blush

Revlon colourstay is v good. Doesn't budge.

Primer, foundation applied with a sponge/blender, powder on that, once you're happy with the way everything looks spritz with a makeup setting spray. The Body Shop Vitamin E one is good.

Try NYX fixing spray. X

Fixing spray gives me spots. From a tip on here I just tap a brush of light powder (bristles straight onto face) all over just enough to fix it. Currently I use one called an invisible powder, but seems to make me a bit pale so I guess it is not invisible smile. However, I don't know if this would stop it transferring to clothes, it just stops it slipping and irritating my eyes.

tbh the primark setting spray is brill for the price, i much prefer it over my urban decay one

Double wear do a light version, not as many shades though. I haven't tried it as I quite like heavy coverage! I used to do a mist of hair spray but now I get eczema on my face I can't do that anymore.
