The Stay All Day Products

Long-lasting makeup is a key factor that I look for when buying my products, my makeup usually goes on at 06:00 and comes off at 22:00, thats a pretty long time especially as I like it to stay as fresh and flawless as possible. Over time I have discovered a variety of products that are super long-lasting on my skin meaning I can worry less about re-application throughout the day.

I start my makeup routine with a small amount of the Benefit Porefessional Primer, a product I discovered quite a few years ago and love to use to smoothen out my complexion. Using a primer such as this one will allow your makeup to adhere to your skin better and it will then stay in place for a much longer period of time, whilst still looking fresh and flawless. Porefessional is great for all skin types, I have dry skin and it works wonders for me especially under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin, I won't apply my makeup without using this first now. 

In terms of base the Seventeen Stay Time Foundation has to be one of the best liquid foundations I have ever used. This foundation has a very thick and creamy consistency which takes a little patience to blend but the end result is flawless and the product stays in place for hours. I didn't ever really expect good results from such an inexpensive foundation at just £6.49. Available in six shades ranging from very light to dark, its a very versatile product that I highly recommend to anyone looking for an all day flawless base. 

To keep my foundation in place all day I like to use the Natural Collection Pressed Powder available in three shades at just £1.99. The shade I opt for is natural, this is the perfect shade for pale skin without adding a white masked effect to the complexion. This powder is brilliant at keeping my makeup in place all day without looking heavy or false, I can't stand those face powders that fill into the lines and pores on my face.

For my eyes I find myself using the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's on a daily basis. Since they have released more shades I have been opting for the matte editions such as creamy beige and pink nude, these are a great base for eyeshadow or for wearing alone. Cream eyeshadow is a great option to go for if you're having a long day, I find it lasts a lot longer than regular powder eyeshadow and it doesn't dry my eyes out quite as much. If you are like me and you like to add a little something to the eyes for day to day wear, the colour tattoos are a great choice to make. 

Finally to fix everything in place my favourite product is the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray which is a complete dupe for Urban Decay All Nighter, but for a fraction of the price! Depending on your preference you can pick this setting spray up in dewy or matte and they both work wonders at keeping my makeup in place for the day. I like to carry this spray around with me to use throughout the day too, if its ever warm or I feel like I need to freshen up. 

What are your cult stay all day beauty products?
