How many times a day do you retouch your makeup because you can literally feel it melting? Sometimes we can’t even walk away from our homes wearing small purses because we need to carry almost every single makeup product we applied in the morning. Luckily, the beauty industry is always one step ahead of the game, and makeup companies are improving their formulas to offer the consumers long-lasting cosmetics.
BELatina consulted with Claudia Betancur, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Millie Morales, Garnier Consulting Celebrity Beauty Expert, about products that can last the whole workday, can resist girls-night-out and even survive a wild party.
L’Oréal Paris Glow Mon Amour
This versatile liquid highlighter illuminates where light naturally hits. You can enhance the glow of your cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, your brow bones and the Cupid’s bow of the lips with a few drops. “This is one of my favorite products to apply on celebrities,” revealed Betancur. “It is a highlighter that gives you the shine leaving the transparency of the skin as it should be, few products like this can help you achieve the perfect glow.”
Another great way to use the Glow Mon Amour is mixing it into your daily moisturizer for an effortless “no-makeup” look or with a body moisturizer for an all-over glow. If you want a radiant finish, you can add a few drops to your foundation.
L’Oreal Paris Unbelieva-Brow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel
This longwear brow gel fills and thickens your brows helping you to outline and define the shape. Thanks to its waterproof, no smudge, no transfer, sweat-resistant formula you can experience brows for days, that will be enhanced up to 48 hours.
“The L’Oréal Paris Unbelieva-brow is another must in my makeup kit,” said Betancur. “This product helps me when my clients don’t have thick eyebrows. For me, a brow pencil is not enough when you need to draw something that doesn’t exist and with this product, I can build perfectly shaped eyebrows that look completely natural,” she added.
Nars Natural Radiant Long Wear Foundation
Blended with fruit extracts like raspberry, apple, and watermelon, this foundation helps to support skin’s elastic fibers to achieve a smooth look. Available in 34 skin-matching shades that fit all skin tones and undertones, this unique formula mimics skin’s natural tone, fusing with it for the closest match. The transfer- and sweat-resistant foundation stays color-true and fresh-looking all day long.
“I am fascinated by this foundation,” revealed Morales. “It is super light and offer great coverage, plus adheres very well to the skin leaving it radiant,” the celebrity beauty expert added.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
This weightless spray gives your makeup serious staying power. This groundbreaking, clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology. It means that it actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place.
“I use this product when I finish the makeup look and also in the eyes,” said Millie Morales, Garnier Consulting Celebrity Beauty Expert. “For example, I use it when I’m working with eyeshadow pigments. The All Nighter helps me to keep those eyes intact all day and night and settle any makeup that is not long lasting.”
