It really comes down to what you're comfortable with and how much time you want to spend on your makeup routine. We always recommend starting with a good base, like our All Nighter Face Primer, to ensure even and smooth makeup application. No face is complete without All Nighter Setting Spray, which locks in your look for up to 16 hours. You can also find your best face makeup with our online Foundation Finder. Check out our Instagram and YouTube channel for tutorials and inspiration.
What makeup do I need for my face?
It really depends on your preferences and what look you're trying to achieve, like for example an even skin tone or reduce scar appearance. We love experimenting with colors and looks based on our mood. That's why our Virtual Try On is so great — it lets you try on different eye, lip and brow products and colors to see what's best for you. Also check out our online Foundation Finder to get your color match and the best formula for you. Hit up your local Sephora, Ulta, or UD retailer to try and see works best for you.
How can I make my face look flawless with makeup?
It's all about getting the correct product for your skin type and using the right tools. Start with a good base and complexion priming products — use our All Nighter Face Primer to create a smooth canvas for even foundation and makeup application. You can blur imperfections and even out hyperpigmentation, dark under eyes, and uneven skin tone with concealer.
We recommend using a blending sponge or foundation brush to apply Stay Naked Liquid Foundation; our powder foundation comes with a charcoal-infused sponge. If you’re unsure of your shade and what kind of formula to use, try our online Foundation Finder.
To keep your makeup flawless, we always recommend setting your look with All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. It locks in your makeup for up to 16 hours and keeps it cool, so you’ll have no fading, smudging, or settling into fine lines.
What face makeup goes on first?
We always recommend using a face primer like our All Nighter Face Primer before any makeup, which will grip foundation and boost the staying power of your products. This ensures a smooth canvas for even makeup application — plus, it gives you a hit of hydration and blurs the appearance of pores, leaving your skin feeling slightly lifted.
How do beginners use face makeup?
We recommend figuring out what shade and formula of face makeup is best for you with our online Foundation Finder. Always start with a primer like All Nighter Face Primer to ensure the most even and smooth makeup application. Check out our Instagram and YouTube channel for tutorials and inspiration.
What types of face makeup are available?
We've got it all when it comes to face makeup. We've got complexion priming sprays (we especially love Quick Fix, which is super moisturising with coconut water) and All Nighter Face Primer, which grips onto foundation and boosts its staying power.
How do you colour match face makeup for your skin tone?
Use our online Foundation Finder to find face makeup for your skin tone — we've got 50 shades of Stay Naked Liquid foundation. You'll want to get shade matched a few times a year, since you may be paler during the winter and more tan during the summer. It also totally comes down to personal preference and how you want your skin to look!
We recommend swatching foundation near the jawline to make sure your face blends in with your neck (otherwise you see a distinct line where your face ends, which is soooo awkward!).
What face makeup do you choose for your skin type?
Decide on the finish you want, from matte, real-skin, or glowy. We offer a range of products for all skin types, and we break it all down with our online Foundation Finder. If you want buildable medium coverage, our Stay Naked complexion lineup is good for all skin types because it's breathable, creates a real-skin matte finish, and lasts all day.
We don't have hard and fast rules when it comes to makeup, although we have some helpful guidelines. Always use a blending sponge or foundation brush to apply your foundation, which can be used all over the face. You'll want to use concealer on targeted areas to even out skin tone, like dark undereye circles and blemishes; you can also use concealer solo instead of foundation (just make sure to blend!) for more targeted application.
Concealer can also be used to brighten and highlight features. The best place to apply blush and bronzer really depends on the shape of your face. For more tips and tutorials on how to use face makeup, check out our Instagram and YouTube channel.
