10 of the Best Party Makeup Products

Party makeup is so much different than your regular and daily product selection. It needs to be durable, high coverage and give a flawless finish to the skin, all in one easy to use formula.

What is the Best Party Makeup?

We have chosen our favourite party makeup products that we love to use when getting ready for a special event, as they stay in place all night, and keep our complexions looking perfected. Plus, some of them are mutli-tasking, meaning we don’t need to spend as much time getting ready.

Lancôme's Mr. Big Mascara is a brilliant makeup tool for a party event. The brush is super fluffy and reaches all the lashes to elongate, add volume and define each individual one for a perfect false-lash effect result. The black ink of the mascara is also perfect for an evening event, as it makes your eyes appear even more defined.

MAC's Prep + Prime Fix + is the perfect finishing touch over a fresh face of makeup. It contains a blend of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants to nourish and soothe the skin, so it appears flawless, perfected and ready for an evening ahead of partying.

If you like to do a gorgeous eye look for a special event, make sure you prime the skin beforehand so it stays in place all night. The NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base helps to create a smooth canvas for shadow to go onto, while keeping it in place so it doesn't budge.

Like an eyeshadow primer, a skin primer is absolutely essential if you want your makeup to stay in place all night. Illamasqua's Primers, including the Hydra Veil, have gained cult status since their launch, and thanks to their hydrating yet lightweight formulas, they create a super smooth canvas for foundation to glide over.

A liquid lipstick tends to be a lot better for a party than a lipstick as its budge-proof formula stays in place a lot longer. Bobbi Brown's Art Stick Liquid Lip has incredible colour payoff and longevity without compromising on hydration levels. Its super moisturising finish leaves lips looking plumped-up and gorgeous without moving once applied.

This multi-tasking palette is ideal for anyone who is always late to the party as you can use it in super quick-time on the eyes and eyebrows. Create natural looking brows using the super-blendable powders, and a smokey-eye look on the lids using the darker shades. Plus, as the powders feel super creamy on the skin, they don't crease or rub off; perfect for late nights.

An eyelash curler is an absolute makeup essential if you want stand-out eyes. By curling your lashes, you allow the mascara to go on much more easily and a lot more length, volume and definition to each one. This one from Shiseido hugs each lash for dramatic and gorgeous results.

Sometimes, a little durable concealer is needed on stubborn areas such as blemishes and pigmentation. The Vichy Dermablend SOS Cover Concealer Stick doesn't budge, staying put for 16 hours, while its high coverage formula conceals every bit of redness you want to hide.

This gorgeous palette from NARS contains everything you need to highlight, add colour and contour your face in one easy to use case. The gorgeous shades can be built up to your desired shade and finish, while the creamy formulas glide onto the skin and blend in seamlessly for a flawless result.

Estée Lauder's new Double Wear Nude Fresh Foundation is fast becoming a cult classic thanks to its gorgeously dewy yet long-lasting formula. It has incredible coverage, yet gives a gorgeously radiant finish that lasts all day; perfection.

I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work.
