Ever looked at your face an hour or so after applying your make-up and think 'what the hell has happened?'

You're not alone hun, we've all be there.

However, a TikTok user has answered all our prayers and revealed how to actually put on make-up that'll keep it on our face ALL. DAY. LONG.

So if you find that your make-up doesn't last all day or you're struggling to make your make-up looks smooth and flawless then this hack is for you.

The TikTok user named Jarida claimed on the social media app that it's all about the application of your make-up rather than the brand or price of your product.

She simply explained, "If you wear make-up, change your whole routine and try this instead; moisturise first, then take some translucent power (I usually use the Maybelline Fit Me) and I just lightly dab it all over my face - not too much.

"Then take some setting spray - it could be any one - I usually use the NYX, after take a primer and just put in [on your face]. Also wait for the setting spray to dry first."

She went on to say, "Then just put on your foundation, just see what happens and how amazing your f--king make-up is going to look and it's going to stay on 24/7 and it's not going to crease."

Well, well, well, brb we're about to try this routine ASAP with the products below...

Funnily enough this isn't the first time we've stumbled across this hack, Youtube Queen Jackie Aina has been setting her primer for years.

"I do this to tone down the shine... [but] I only do this with translucent powder because it's super lightweight.

"And anything you put on top of this will make [your make-up] last longer," she explained on Youtube.
