Long Lasting Makeup

Continuing our series of favorite beauty finds under $10, I would like to share with you my favorite eyeliner of the moment: Almay's 16-hour eyeliner. I was having a hard time finding an eyeliner that did not run, smudge or fall below my bottom lash after 3pm- until I came across this gem at CVS. This hypoallergenic eyeliner is water resistant and truly does not smudge! This great product is convenient too- it has a built-in sharpener. You can get it here for under $7!

In the spirit of long wear makeup, here are more of my favorite products:

If you haven't invested in eye base, you should! It really makes a difference in whether your eye makeup will stay put and look fresh all day or not. In my opinion, Trish has the best and it is worth every penny!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10: This lightweight foundation really does last 9 hours! You can buy it here (the price isn't bad either).

NARS Smudge proof Eyeshadow Base: another great eye base that does not crease or crack! Again, a crucial product for your makeup routine if you want it to stay put.

Trish's Instant Pick-Me-Up Lips: A great, long-lasting lip stain- if you haven't tried this, you must! It gives you an intense pop of color in lips' own shade of brightening pink. It becomes a different color on every person!

Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-wear Cream Shadow: Part of Bobbi's cult favorite long-wear collection, this new take on the original cream shadow is perfect for fall (metallics are IN)! These cream shadows really last all day AND night. For a sheer effect, blend on lids with your finger and for a more intense look, layer the shadows. Also, try the Long-wear Eyeliner- addictive!
