There sure is, and it’s called us­ing a primer. M.A.C. Cos­met­ics Se­nior Artist John Sta­ple­ton says it’s es­sen­tial for mak­ing sure your make-up stays on your face, just like how a paint primer makes sure paint stays on the wall. Sta­ple­ton also rec­om­mends us­ing oil blot­ters through­out the day even if you don’t have oily skin be­cause this will help re­set the make-up and pre­vent it from shift­ing. Mean­while, top Hol­ly­wood make-up artist Elle Leary says to fin­ish your make-up rou­tine with a set­tiset­ting spray to cre­ate a bar­rier that still lets your skin breathe. Hal­i­to­sisHal­i­to­sis,, oor bad breath, can be caused by cer­tain fac­tors lilikeke cav­i­ties, gum disease, trapped food par­ti­cles bbe­tween teeth, and cracked fill­ings. To en­sure fr­freshres breath al­ways, den­tist Tina Frangella recom­mere­c­om­mend­sen brush­ing daily with an elec­tric tooth­bru­tooth­brushsh as its uni­form clean­ing mo­tion helps re­move pplaplaque more ef­fec­tively com­pared to do­ing it mma­man­u­ally.

It’s also goo­goodd to have wa­tery veg­eta­bles and fruits like cel­ercel­ery,ry, ap­ples, and raw car­rots on hand to munch o on once in a while to clear up food de­bris.
