Longwear Makeup Must-Haves
View Laura's profile

It can be so frustrating to look in the mirror halfway through the day and see your makeup has gone patchy, is slipping off your face or has just disappeared. Keep your makeup looking pristine all day with our selection of the best longwear makeup around.

RMK Long Lasting UV Protection Primer 30ml

It all starts with the right base and this primer needs just a pearl sized amount over the face to help protect your skin, hydrate and smooth before your makeup. It helps keep your makeup looking its best.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup 30ml

Double Wear is a classic and for good reason. It truly stays in place, giving you full coverage that looks flawless all day long. With an incredible range of shades too, it is one for everyone to try.

L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Foundation 30ml (Various Shades)

For a more affordable option, this long-wear foundation is an amazing choice. It has powerful coverage that lasts beautifully well even for oilier skin.

theBalm Instain Long-Wearing Blush (Various Shades)

Stains are the perfect way to achieve a pop of colour that stays around. We love this one from theBalm because the powder formula makes it so simple to apply; much easier than the usual liquids and serums.

benefit Cream Shadow - Various Shades

Opting for a cream shadow seems counter intuitive if you don't want it to slide, but the smudge-proof formula from Benefit's Cream Shadow means that it sets down and stays all day. We like to pat it on with our fingers and then use a fluffy brush to blend the edges before it sets.

bareMinerals Round The Clock Re-Stage Waterpoof Eyeliner

Eyeliner so often lets the side down, slipping down the eyes and settling into any creases. This waterproof creamy liner pencil from bareMinerals is gorgeous to use and keeps panda eyes at bay.

Ardell Pro Brow Sculpting Pomade - Various Shades

We never forget about the brows here at Lookfantastic and this fab pomade from Ardell is an incredible formula for all day wear. Apply and blend; then it will set for the perfect finish all day long. No patchy brows here!

Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour and Primer 6ml (Various Shades)

Liquid lipsticks are always a good option for colour that doesn't transfer or fade. These new creamy liquid formulas from Clinique are gorgeous and come in a great range of pretty and vivid colours.

Stila Stay All Day® Matt'ificent Lipstick 1ml (Various Shades)

If you prefer a traditional lipstick, then look no further than the new MATTE'ificent lipsticks from Stila. They have an ultra-hydrating formula that doesn't feel drying on the lips, but colour that stays put.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
