Makeup That Lasts 18 Hours

A few weeks ago, I had to get up at 5 am to go to work before going out for the day to spend it with my cousin who was over from Austrailia so I needed to make my makeup last as long as possible. I wasn't expecting my makeup to last as long as it did but these products went above and beyond my expectations! I only had to lightly touch up once too.
Makeup That Lasts 18 Hours
I have combination skin, my T-Zone is quite oily and the rest of my skin is normal with some dry patches. I also have acne-prone skin which has been having a bit of a flare up at the moment. I also have quite a lot of redness and discolouration so these products are not only super long-lasting but they are also high coverage too.The first product I have been using is the Soap and Glory The Fab Pore 3-in-1 Oil Control Serum as a primer. This is one of the main products that makes my makeup last as long as it does. I only use this on my T-Zone and it works wonders, it keeps all oil at bay throughout the day and my makeup applies smoother when I use it.

For foundation, I have been obsessed with the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation recently. This is my must-have foundation at the moment as it has such high coverage without ever looking cakey or heavy on the skin. It's extremely lightweight once applied and it wears well throughout the day. I have a full review up on this product, here. This foundation covers anything and everything with ease and it is very buildable. My must-have concealer and holy grail concealer is the Tarte Shape Tape. The hype is right about this product as it is by far the best concealer I have ever used! It has incredible coverage and the tiniest amount goes a long way. I like to use this mainly under the eyes to conceal my dark circles, it doesn't crease throughout the day and lasts forever on the skin.

To set my foundation and concealer, I use the RCMA No Color Powder, again this is another super-hyped product which I have fallen in love with! I use with every single day without fail to set my under eye concealer and occasionally I will use it to set my foundation too. It is very smoothing on the skin and even though it has a matte finish, it doesn't look flat on the skin and it doesn't look powdery. I used this the day I needed my makeup to last all day and it worked brilliantly! To touch up throughout the day and to set my foundation on my chin (my acne prone area) I used the PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation as it has incredible coverage. I love this foundation for touch-ups especially as it's great for adding coverage back to areas where any foundation as worn off throughout the day.

And to lock my foundation in place I like to use the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is the only setting spray I have found to actually make my makeup last longer and I have tried a fair few! These products made my makeup stay on from 5 am to 11 pm with only one small touch up throughout the day, how impressive is that!
