Whether you are doing a huge night out with your friends which includes a party bus rental and only the hottest nightclub spots, or you’re just going for a few drinks with your girls, you will want your makeup to stay in place and flawless for as long as possible. You do not want to spend hours creating the perfect cut crease and sleek eyeliner wing only to look in the mirror and see it has been ruined after only half an hour of being out. Here are the top tricks and products to ensure the makeup in your last photo of the night, is just as perfect as in your first.
Whatever foundation works best for your skin, it will definitely need some help staying in place through all the dancing and laughing you’ll be doing with your best girlfriends. The application is extremely important – as you want to ensure your foundation blends into the skin and does not just lay on top where it can easily become patchy and cakey.
The Beauty Blender is a great tool when slightly damp, to not only set your foundation in place but also to prevent an uneven layer distributed across the skin as it will soak up any excess foundation.
Once your foundation is in place, you will need to give it a little help even after a perfect application. When on a night out – everyone has been there – you can get hot and sweaty, and if you have oily skin also, your skin can appear incredibly shiny.
Setting down a layer of powder, like Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Powder, whilst using a damp beauty blender will help your makeup endurance, and prevent oil and sweat, without clogging your pores.
It is inevitable that you will have used a primer before putting on your foundation – as this is a commonly known way of prepping your skin for makeup and helping it to last longer. However, when it comes to the ultimate endurance, you will want to – for want of a better phrase – create a makeup sandwich for your base.
You want to make sure not only your foundation stands the test of time but your contour, bronzer, blush and highlight also. Using a setting spray like the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray which has been rigorously tested by the online beauty community, will keep your makeup in place till even the next morning if you’re still partying at 4 am.
There is no point in having a flawless base if your mascara and eyeliner have decided to work their way down your cheeks, or your lipstick has bled ruining your perfectly drawn lips. Using products like Stila’s All Day Waterproof Eyeliner and Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascarawill ensure you avoid any eye makeup related faux pas.
Using a liquid lipstick like Anastasia Beverly Hills’ will keep your bold lip in place no matter how many shots your friends buy you.
These are top tested and approved products that will help to keep you looking flawless all through the night, so you can have a fantastic time without having to carry a clutch full of products to touch up with.
