NYE Makeup + Long Lasting Makeup Recommendations

Saturday, December 30, 2017
How is it New Years eve tomorrow! I feel as though it was the beginning of 2017 was only a couple of months ago...where has this year gone! As much as I'm shocked at how fast the year has gone by, I'm excited and motivated for 2018 with more exciting and varied blog content, veganuary and hopefully a more active lifestyle with a couple of big events already planned for spring 2018.

However, before all of that, we have New Years eve which for me is usually spent with neighbours and friends which I absolutely love but I always feel like there is so much pressure to go somewhere or do something special for New Years eve and along with that goes glam, sparkly makeup looks...I'm all for glitter but I don't what to be wearing that until the small hours.

Today's post will be the final post of 2017 and I'm going to be showing you some of my current beauty favourites, what I will be wearing for New Years eve/New Years day and some product recommendations for a long lasting makeup look. I'm not going with the typical glitter filled makeup for NYE but it is long lasting, polished, simple and easy to create as well as something you don't have to worry about or touch up.
I was kindly sent these lovely, long lasting products from the amazing people over at Just My Look, who I've been lucky enough to work with before. Just My Look has an amazing range of makeup from brands such as Milani, The Ordinary, Sleek, TheBalm, Urban Decay and many more as well as haircare, body and nail products.

*The Orindary High Adherence Silicone Primer (£3.90)
Let's start with the primer as this makeup look has to last for much longer than my makeup usually has to last so primer is key. I've tried The Ordinary High Spreadability Fluid Primer which I love but this is much more convenient as it's in a tube container and it helps to create a smooth base for my foundation and concealer. I'd definitely recommend either of these primers, especially if you need your makeup to last much longer than it normally would. The Nars Pro Prime and Too Faced Hangover Primer are great options too!
*Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation (£12.95)
Most of my foundations are quite long lasting, even if they don't specifically claim to be but one that is guaranteed to stay put (at least on my normal to dry and sensitive skin) is this offering from Milani. I have the shade 00A Porcelain which is the lightest shade of foundation that I own, it's almost too pale but it's great for my skin tone during the winter months. On me, this foundation lasts all day, it has great coverage, the shade is fantastic for anyone who is ghostly pale and it's water/sweatproof. I'd also recommend the Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation for another long lasting foundation for those with dry skin. Buy any two Milani products and get a free Milani eyeshadow palette with the code: MILANI.

*Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£4.99)
During the colder months, my skin becomes even more dry so primers, moisturisers and makeup sponges are essentials. I love the Real Techniques foundation sponges to apply and blend my foundation, concealer and even powder for a polished, perfectly blended finish especially on my dry skin. Buy any two Real Techniques products and get a free brush cleanser using the code: REALTECH.

*Sleek Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream (£4.75)
I have wanted to try this product for so long but I always forgot about it or something new intrigues me more but it's a fantastic, inexpensive lip product. I have the shade 'birthday suit' which is a gorgeous everyday, rosy pink that applies like a dream even on chapped lips. It does dry down to a more matte finish but it still feels comfortable and it lasts for a while on me without really transferring. I'd also recommend TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipsticks for another long lasting lip colour recommendation. Buy any two Sleek items and get a free silicone makeup sponge using the code: SLEEK.

What will you be doing for NYE? Staying in or going out? Do you have any long lasting makeup recommendations?
