skibobrown is right!  Miss Rainbow’s tutorial with the chaffing gel is amazing… it works like a charm!  🙂  Don’t waste money on pricey primer!

You can get it at Target. I got a tube for about six dollars and it’s lasted along time. I used to use the Bare Minerals one, but honestly the Monistat works better. I also use the Urban Decay setting spray And my foundation has lasted two days before with that combo

For those that don’t want to put Monistat on their face (does it really work?!?!) try the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. I started using it a couple weeks ago (on top of my moisturizer) and it is amazing.

Set with Urban Decay All Nighter and you are good to go for 12+ hours.

The Monistat isn’t the ‘Monistat’ that you’re thinking of. It’s isn’t the anti-itch stuff. It’s a silky type formula for anti-chaffing, it’s meant for the bikini/ inner thigh area (think where your thighs touch and how uncomfortable that can be when it’s hot and you’re sweaty). It’s meant to protect your skin from sweat, clothing, etc. By putting it on your face you’re just putting a layer of protect between your face and your make up. It feels weird at first but it’s very lightweight and from my experience works just as well, if not better than the “name brand” primers. If I remember Mrs. Rainbow’s tutorial correctly, it’s actually the same formula as Smashbox’s Photofinsh Primer (if not from Mrs. Rainbow, I found that when doing my research on using it for make up). I bought my six dollar tube almost a year ago, use it about 2-4 times a week and I’m finally starting to run out. When I used to get the Bare Minerals one, it’d last maybe a few months and was significantly pricer. Since I don’t spend as much on primer, I splurge more on better foundations/ concealers which also makes a world of difference.

The Urban Decay All Nighter spray is also amazing!! I use both the primer and the setting spray. If I really want staying power I use the Make Up Forever HD micro finish powder before the setting spray.
