HOW TO

This dance-proof beauty look has party written all over it

Can you feel it? The end of the year is almost here, the sun is shining and the party, or should we say parties, are just getting started. The vibe is electric and you need a beauty look to match. You also need a look that lasts, through every “should we do a silly one” photobooth moment, every Mariah Carey rendition and every late-night body roll (feeling seen yet?).

1. First on, last to leave

The foundation to a long-lasting look is, well, foundation. We used Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup for its unmatched 24-hour-wear promise and buildable medium-to-full, (a.k.a very photogenic) coverage. It’s oil-controlling, sweat-proof and transfer-proof, so it can withstand hot temps, steamy dance moves and never look shiny. For extra protection we prepped the skin with Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to blur pores and imperfections. To set, we finished with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder , focusing on the t-zone, to prevent any shine—it’s flashback-free, so won’t photobomb your selfies.

2. Bright eyes

The centrepiece to this bold look is, of course, the eyes. Using the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vol 2 Palette , we used a base of ‘Stay True’, a matte magenta, on the lid blended with ‘A Moment’, a shimmering fuchsia, through the crease. On the lashes, HOURGLASS Caution Extreme Length mascara brings length, volume and glam without any flaking, melting or transfer under the eyes.

4. The finisher

Your big move? MECCA MAX Life Proof Setting Spray. Spritz over the finished look for a boost of hydration and serious all-over staying power: skin fresh, foundation locked, eyeshadow sharp with no need to leave the dancefloor for a touch-up.
