I don’t mind if something stains my skin for a few hours post-removal, but I don’t want anything staining for 24 hours afterward, because then that interferes with what I want to wear the next day.  When a lipstick stains, it’s typically a good thing, since it really enhances the longevity of the product, but it seems less valuable with other product types.

I make sure I am well-stocked in SPF at all times, especially ones that dry matte, because that’s what I look for in a sunscreen I layer under makeup.  If I’m doing full makeup, I try to build makeup in layers, which means using primers and powders to set anything liquid/cream.  For lighter days, I opt for tinted moisturizer over regular liquid foundation.  I don’t really go to the beach, so waterproof makeup is not necessary.

Lots and lots of variety!  I have found that–after being a long-time MAC user–variety is important.  It helps you learn what you should expect in products, what really works, what doesn’t, and what’s worth it.  I don’t have something from nearly every brand, but there is definitely diversity in the products I have.
