5 Ways To Get Your Makeup Lasting All Night

Ahh the question on everyones mind either when they are going out or booking me for makeup.
Of course my makeup applications will last you till morning, so no need to worry about that ;)

But when it comes to DIY heres my top tips...

If your night out is a planned occasion, just slightly alter your lifestyle and drink more water, ideally drink 2 litres of water a day, everyday! This flushes toxins out of your body and keeps skin clear and replenished. Why wouldn't you want this everyday?
If its a last minute night out, keep drinking lots of water through the week/day, you will still see and feel a difference.
(Some great moisturisers to benefit hydration)
Bobbi Brown - Vitamin Base
The Body Shop - Drops of Youth Cream
Loreal - Skin Perfection

You may have ready my previous blog post about My Skincare Routine and why exfoliating is a great part of your regime. But exfoliating your skin on the morning of your night out is a great way to cleanse off those dead skin cells, to keep a clear and clean base for you makeup.
(My favourite Exfoliants)
The Body Shop - Vitamin C (has its own benefits HERE)
Eve Lom - Cleanser
Clarins - Exfoliator

A primer before EVERYTHING...
This mean, face primer, eyeshadow primer, lip primer, concealer and mascara primer.
(Heres a product recommendation for each one)
Smashbox Primer
Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion
Guerlain LipLift
Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer
Dior Backstage Mascara primer
(Read my Top Face Primers HERE)

Heard of the 'Baking' Trend? A makeup artists trick of completely setting your skin and highlighting at the same time. Well, it's a similar method, depending on what skin finish you are wanting, I would recommend setting the whole face with translucent powder or just powder your main oil areas (i.e. T-zone) and under eyes.
(My favourite Translucent Powders)
Laura Mercier - Loose Powder
Bare Minerals - Mineral Veil
Rimmel - Stay Matte (Compact Powder)

My favourite of all... Just 3 sprays of setting spray will securely fix your makeup in place all night!
Just like a hairspray but for your face (Do NOT use hairspray on the face, it is so bad for your pores)
Opt for my favourite Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray.

So theres my Top 5 tips and recommendations for your 'All Nighter Make-up Fixers', just don't forget your lipstick to keep a top up with ;)
I would advice the Guerlain Lip Lift to prime the lip, line and fill in with your chosen lip liner the coat with your chosen lipstick/lipgloss - You may not even need a top up ;)

Have a glamorous night out...
