We all want our make-up to go the distance, especially when it comes to foundation and lipstick.
It’s never fun to worry about patchy red skin during a hot date, or fading red lips on a big night out. Relying on cosmetics is a must, especially during the wintery months, when plunging temperatures can play havoc with our complexions. Read on for some of our top tips on unfaltering foundations and long-lasting lip treats.
MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation won’t let you down, even if wind and rain are doing their best to ruin your day. This formula promises a flawless finish in any environment for up to 15 hours, which is quite a feat. It is easy to blend into skin, feels lightweight and keeps oil levels under check.
For anyone looking for a truly hardworking product, Max Factor’s All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation is just the thing. Rather than having to apply primer, concealer and foundation separately, this combines all three in one go – perfect for those chilly mornings when you need another five minutes in bed.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail Makeup Foundation is another favourite. This is available in 14 shades and is easy to blend into skin for those with an uneven tone. It also boasts SPF 18 so it will protect your skin from the winter glare while keeping your complexion under control.
For lips it’s hard to beat Maybelline’s Superstay 14 Hour lipstick. This super rich colour lasts throughout the day, withstanding even the challenge of lunch or hot drinks. Available in 20 standout shades, there is sure to be something for everyone and it doesn’t dry lips out or feel caked on. Start applying colour in the centre of your upper lip and work outwards along the contour of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip and you are good to go. We particularly love the Ravishing Rouge hue, a classically chic red.
Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Stay Lipsticks contain Shea butter and vitamin E to keep lips soft and also promise to stick around for an impressive 16 hours. The product has a sexy suede finish and with just a quick touch up during the day it really will last the distance.
If you are in search of a steadfast gloss, consider Clinique’s Long Last Glosswear which boasts eight hours of shine. Ranging from sheer shades to head-turning hues, there really is a colour for every occasion. You can wear these glosses alone, or create a fuller look by applying them over your favourite lipstick.
