A make-up look that lasts
For make-up that lasts all day long, check out our super simple tutorial
The holiday season can be hectic, so you’ll want your make-up to keep up with the pace. We show you how to create a look that withstands it all: food, drinks, even a kiss under the mistletoe! Learn how with our simple steps for a make-up look that lasts.
Step 1 – Primed to perfection
Using your fingertips, apply a primer to the whole of your face. This will help to keep the rest of your make-up in place.
Step 2 – Sturdy foundations
Apply a long-lasting foundation as a base. Use a foundation brush for a smooth, even finish.
Step 3 – Smudge-proof brows
Thicken and define your brows with a gel before combing through. A gel is a bit like hairspray for your brows – it’s sure to hold them in place.
Step 4 – Liner that lasts
Apply a ribbon of eyeliner just above your upper eyelashes, finishing with a wing. You’ll want to use a liquid liner that has some staying power, so look out for one that doesn’t smudge easily.
Step 5 – Long-term lashes
Apply mascara to your top and bottom lashes – you may want to pick one that’s waterproof to ensure it’s long-lasting.
Step 6 – Lips that stick
Apply a matte liquid colour to your lips. A combined liner and lipstick kit is ideal for this, as your bold colour is less likely to run.
Step 7 – Set it
Lock down your finished make-up look with a spritz of setting spray.
