Makeup That Lasts Through Food & Drinks
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You’re probably getting all your ingredients ready to cook up a storm or perhaps you’re thinking about what dish you’ll order as your contribution to the party – you can always claim you cooked it, like me ;)
Regardless of what your plans are, there’s no denying that it’s a festive season where gatherings happen. And, typically, one wears makeup at such gatherings. So, we’ve prepared a jolly list of food and drink-proof makeup to inspire your holiday looks.
DISCLAIMER: You're probably wondering, What does the dog picture have to do with this blog post? The answer is, absolutely nothing – we just thought it was cute :)
Priming your skin before applying makeup is a step many people ignore. It really makes a difference when you prepare the skin to absorb foundation or concealer. The pigments stay on longer and won’t clog your pores because the primer has built a protective layer against it.
Milani has a collection of great Primers that target specific needs and are suitable for all skin tones. Whether you’re going to follow up with other makeup products or not, using these primers will give you a healthy complexion that will last throughout the night.
The cream-like texture blends transparently and can be reapplied through the day to freshen up, moisturize dry skin or keep oily skin at bay.
Foundation & Concealer
Next, will be your foundation and concealer. It’s going to be very important to find a full coverage yet lightweight foundation that will stay fresh-looking for hours. We recommend a powder foundation such as NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Powder Foundation.
You’ll probably be moving around a lot and your skin will naturally perspire. Therefore, a matte foundation will help keep your face shine-free. On top of that, a compact foundation makes it easier to go for quick touch-ups when needed.
As for the concealer, a spot concealer that targets specific needs would be best, such as the NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer. Spot-check problem areas if needed and keep it in your purse to freshen up throughout the day.
The fastest, easiest way to enhance your look would be through your eye makeup. Go all out with fun, highly pigmented eyeshadows and combine it with a great waterproof eyeliner and styling brow gel.
The L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow collection comes in various sparkly shades that range from sage green to garnet red. Choose a festive color to match the occasion!
Lipsticks are always tricky, especially if you’re looking for a long lasting formula that won’t stain cheeks (when kissing/smooching) or smudge away after a couple of drinks.
We recommend Rimmel’s Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color or NYX Full Throttle Lipstick. Both products are waterproof and come in various colors. They will settle nicely on your lips and the pigmentation will stay on through food and drinks.
And don’t forget to remove your makeup after a long day; this will ensure your skin stays clean and ready for another day.
If you don't feel like wearing makeup, we’ve got some great skincare products to keep your skin looking fresh and ready for a cozy night in.
