It’s devastating, and no matter how hard you try, the only way to get rid of those dreaded stains is to throw the entire outfit in the wash - and as if anyone has time for that!
Watch: The 10-pump foundation hack. Post continues below.
As someone whose entire wardrobe consists of white and light-coloured clothing, I’ve tried everything. I’ve worn the outfit before doing my makeup (which turned into a disaster after I dropped powder all over me), I’ve placed tissues around the neckline before pulling it over my head and I’ve even covered my face with my hair to help create a barrier between my face and the collar.
And while it helped, it didn’t completely eliminate the problem. I also found that it didn’t matter if I came out clean after putting on my clothes, because throughout the day my makeup would transfer onto the inside of my collar anyway.
I had pretty much resigned to a life of foundation-covered clothing until I came across Mia Freedman’s Instagram video, where she spoke about spraying hairspray on her clothes to stop her makeup from transferring.
