Long-Wear Makeup That’ll Keep You Looking Fresh, Even Through a Marathon of Video ChatsApril 24, 2020
Usually when the weather starts heating up, long-wear makeup comes in handy for outdoor social activities like music festivals and beach trips with friends. But now that you’re social distancing, you may be seeking out budge-proof makeup for entirely different reasons. Maybe you’re looking for a foundation that won’t transfer under a face covering during a grocery store run or a lipstick that stays looking fresh and vibrant through back-to-back video calls. Whatever the case, these seven products have your back.
A swipe of lipstick can help elevate any look, yes, even sweats. This 16-hour wear formula will last you from morning Zoom calls to FaceTime happy hour and beyond.
Long-wear makeup can be drying, so finish off your beat with a hydrating setting spray like this one. It contains hyaluronic acid, coconut water and aloe vera extract to soothe and replenish, while providing hold and controlling oil and shine.
Even if you’ve sworn off all other makeup while staying inside, you’re likely still doing your brows — it can really make you feel more put together. This semi-permanent brow gel helps you create a perfectly shaped and defined look that lasts for up to 60 hours, making your morning routine even more effortless.
Waterproof mascara isn’t just great for preventing smudges during a tear-jerking Zoom wedding or a quick lunchtime workout. Did you know that waterproof formulas can also help straight lashes hold a curl? We love the Bambi Eye mascara in particular because it gives you a lash-enhancing yet natural doe-eyed look.
To cover up stress acne or dark under-eye circles, choose a concealer that’s also good for your skin. Dermablend’s Cover Care Concealer is hydrating, non-comedogenic and sensitive skin-tested and offers a 24-hour, soft matte finish.
Get in on the glass skin trend with the NYX High Glass Face Primer that gives you an all-day lit-from-within glow that looks as luminous through a laptop screen as it does in person. The formula is infused with light-reflecting pearls and prolongs the wear of the makeup you apply afterwards.
This buildable, oil-free foundation perfects your complexion without caking, creasing or transferring. No matter your skin type, you’ll love the smooth, velvet finish that lasts for 24 hours.
