Whether you are trying to combat the heat and humidity of summer, or you simply need a makeup look that will last from morning to night, these are some of my top products that will stay all day.
I wore the NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil for my sister’s wedding day and only needed to reapply once in the evening because it felt a bit dry. It truly lasted all day!
One. Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder. This is my favorite setting powder, whether I’m using a full coverage foundation or not! It will help your makeup last so much longer when you dust a bit of this on top of foundation.
Two. Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation. I love this foundation for a full-coverage long-wear option. If applied with a brush, you’ll get the fullest coverage. If you want to thin out the coverage a bit, use a damp beauty blender.
Three. Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara. The non-waterproof version is a fantastic mascara for thickening and volumizing. The waterproof version is the best for lasting all day and holding a curl in the lashes for a bit longer too!
Four. NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil. If they came out with a soft nude pink shade of this pencil, it would be all I wear. This pencil is long-lasting without being overly dry and I love that it doesn’t fade from the center of the lips even after hours of wear.
Five. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. It’s hard to beat Anastasia brow products and the Dipbrow pomade is going to give you the cleanest, longest-lasting brow. Use a small angled brush to apply!
Six. NARS Liquid Blush. A liquid blush looks natural on the skin, blends beautifully into foundation, and gives you the control to choose how intense the finish is. I love working this product into my cheeks with a flat top brush.
Seven. Covergirl Outlast All Day Lip Color. I was so impressed by this drugstore lip product. If you follow the directions on how to apply, it will last for hours and hours! I love that the gloss/top coat is clear so it’s all you need to add a burst of hydration to your lips if they start to feel dry.
Eight. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Contour Duo. I use this product almost every time I do my makeup. It may be the most flattering contour and glow product I’ve ever used! A tiny bit will add the softest, most natural looking finish to the skin but it can easily be built up for a more dramatic contour and glow!
Nine. Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer. This concealer will not budge after you apply it. A little goes a long way and it adds brightness and covers even the darkest under eye circles.
Ten. Tarte Tartelette Tease. This is a tiny palette but it packs a lot of power. The shadows are pigmented and the color options are all you need to create a simple daytime eye or glam it up with some more intense, darker shades.
Eleven. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. This liquid liner is easy to use and will not smear. I like using it right at the base of my lashes or if I’m ever tempted to do a proper cat eye with liquid liner. The felt tip is flexible enough to feel comfortable and deposits an even amount of liner when you use it.
Twelve. MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot. This is a fool-proof way to make sure your eyeshadow doesn’t budge. I like using Soft Ochre or Painterly for a neutral shade or some of the shimmery shades as a one & done eyeshadow look.
