There are few things more frustrating than spending a chunk of your morning methodically applying your foundation, only to find that it’s slipped down your face and into your previously invisible fine lines by noon (or, worse, as soon as you apply it). But it’s not your fault, and no, you didn’t just develop 40 new wrinkles overnight.
