Temperatures are rising and the days are lasting longer —— wouldn't it be nice if your makeup did, too? As we all know, getting all-day coverage and color can be a challenge. Here are a few tips that can help:

For face

It's prime-time, ladies. If you're not already using a primer, you definitely should. On top of minimizing pores and smoothing the surface of your skin, it helps your moisturizer absorb more quickly, which keeps your foundation from melting away. Primers come in all sizes, shapes, and formulas – from moisturizing primers packed with SPF, to the show-stopping tinted beauty balms that combine toner, moisturizer, and primer.

For eyes

Get ready to double up. Apply a cream eyeshadow first, then apply a powder shadow over it. The powder and cream will bind together and "set" the color for hours. You can match shades if you like, but it's also a great opportunity to mix and match — try a pink cream with a gold powder shadow for a sparkly springtime look.

For lips

Get in line for this one simple trick: Instead of matching your lip liner to your lipstick, choose a lip liner that matches your natural lip color. Then, after lining your lips as usual, fill in your whole lip before applying a long-wearing lipstick like CoverGirl Outlast Lipcolor. The liner will bind to your lipstick and provide you with a base color that'll last all day.

All done? Lovely. Now finish up with a dusting of translucent loose powder to set your makeup. If you've got an especially long day and no time to touch up, you can go for the big guns: a quick mist of flexible-hold hairspray all over your face (hey, it works).
