For all the times your makeup starts running and for all the reasons, sex should not be one of them. The mascara running red lipstick smudged look is not the look to go for during those intimate moments so here are a few products that keep your face on when everything comes off.
Start the base with the fantastic Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer £17. Oil-free and waterproof, not to mention makes your skin crazy smooth and silky to apply the rest of your make-up on; trust me your skin isn’t going anywhere with this bad boy. Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation £34 is such an iconic waterproof base, we all know about its sweat-proof, oil proof, waterproof, life-proof properties. It’s a liquid to powder formula so it dries matte to the point where you don’t even really need a powder, and the coverage is just to die for it’s the perfect in-between medium and full coverage. Next, try Smashbox Studio Skin 24hr Waterproof Concealer £20. I mean I don’t need to say much more, the name kind of sells itself…it works.
Now one thing which you never really think could be waterproof is bronzer, think again! IT Cosmetics Ombre Radiance Bronzer £25 is such a fantastic bronzer and it won't budge after the dirty deed. It has such a naturally pretty warmth to it and also has something called ‘Drops of Light Technology’ which basically means it will treat and nourish the skin while it imparts a seamless, sun-kissed glow.
To set the skin and lock all that into place (light it needs locking anymore) the famous and iconic Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray £24 is always a winner, you really can’t go wrong I mean this stuff is like cement.
Eyes can be a tricky one with eyeshadow, but Nudestix Magnetic Nude Glimmers are so great, they come in 3 shades and as well as being waterproof (obvs at this point) the gel can be layered up to create more and more luminosity and glow to the eyes; they also can be used to highlight the cheekbones too for some extra glitter. A great budge -roof eyeliner is the Inglot Black Gel Liner £14 which, to be honest, if you compare to some other gel liners it's actually super cheap and so worth it in my opinion. Pair that with Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara £27, which instantly thickens and lengths your lashes with one sweep from the brush.
Finish the look off with Beauty Bakerie Matte Lip Whip £19. I mean these lip formulas are so waterproof that they have their own remover just for this product! They have incredible pigment and glide on so smooth you’ll think its butter.
When you’ve tried all these products gems your face will be so sex proof you’ll look better after than before!
