Stay All Day Makeup

Stay All Day Makeup

Is there anything more disappointing than your face eating up your makeup within a couple of hours of applying it? Well after being obsessed with makeup for a few years now, I’ve got my ultimate combination of stay all day makeup products. You can thank me later.

One of the most important collection of products in my makeup stash are primers. Finding a primer that works well for both you face and your eye lids is vital to keep your makeup on all day. My current favourite face primer is the ELF Blemish Control Primer, which is definitely one of the cheaper face primers on the market. And for eye primers, well, I’ve tried a fair few but my number one is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.  I know this has many a mixed review, but I’m definitely in the ‘love’ park for this eyeshadow primer.

Recently, I’ve spoken about my favourite full coverage, stay all day foundation which, surprisingly, is from the drugstore. The Seventeen Stay Time Foundation is my go-to weekend foundation and it truly stays for some time. If you want to hear more about it then check out my full review!

Whenever I need a mascara that’s going to last all day, I go for one of two options. The first would be the Benefit They’re Real Mascara, which is just impossible to remove. But normally, I’d reach for a waterproof mascara, particularly the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. This mascara will stay all day, and is just as impossible as the Benefit offering to remove.

The final product, and the true hero product of this post, is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I initially picked this up in America, and have got through a few bottles of this ever since. It’s the one setting spray I always go back to and it’s the only one I have ever repurchased, despite trying a lot of them over the past few years.

Whilst I’ve not spoken about lip products in this post, if you want to know the ultimate stay all day lip products then you have to check out a post I wrote earlier in the year. I’ve picked out my favourite products from some of my absolute favourite brands in this post, and I couldn’t recommend them more.

Which products are your ultimate favourites when you need a makeup look that is going to stay all day?

    I really want the All Nighter spray back in my life. I used to use it and I loved it, and whilst I’ve found good setting sprays, I’ve never found any as effective as this one!

    • I went for a little while without it in my collection but since repurchasing I’ve decided I can’t be without it. It’s definitely a must in my stash now x

  • I’ve heard so many good things about the Seventeen foundation and if it’s beating your high end foundations for an evening foundation then it must be a gooden. I really want to try an Urban Decay setting spray too.

    • Honestly the Seventeen foundation is so fab, it’s just a shame about lack of shade range! x

  • Stay Time is such a good long-lasting foundation especially if you want high coverage, the concealer is also amazing and it my holy grail, even better than Collection!

    • The Stay Time concealer used to me my HG until I discovered Maybelline Fit Me. It’s such a fab concealer! x

  • Such a great post, I love the All Nighter spray so much. I need to try more Seventeen products, the foundation sounds great. I hear ELF are coming to Superdrug so hopefully I will be able to pick up the primer in store, thank you for sharing xxx

    • I’m really excited for ELF to hit Superdrug, but I’m still a fan of ordering online as they quite often throw in free gifts or offer half price. Definitely give ELF a go soon! x

    I love the Urban Decay Setting Sprays – It’s one of my favourite sprays to use! I was gutted when I ran out of this last year! I need to try the Seventeen foundation but my shade never seems to be in stock!
