Makeup that lasts All Night Long || Makeup

For today's post, I thought I would talk you through my go-to foundation routine when I really need the extra coverage! I was working in a nightclub for part of this summer and this was my go-to makeup. I can assure you that if you want a makeup look that will last you all night long while dancing, sweating and having a blast this is my best-kept secret!

As you can see my skin isn't particularly problematic. I do have dark circles all the time because I don't remember the last time I had enough sleep in one night and a few acne scars but nothing major. However, for a night out, I like to go the extra mile and go super full coverage. The problem is, normally full coverage means cakey and I hate the super matte look. I think the best way to tone down a super matte foundation is using a very dewy and hydrating primer. I have gone on and on about the Too Faced HangoveRx Primmer for long enough for you to know how I feel about it and why I love it so much so let's talk about how to pick the right foundation. 

When it comes to picking a foundation for a more hardcore makeup look I always try to go for medium to high coverage foundations. I've picked up the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation around a year ago (I know it took me too long to write a proper review...) and I didn't like it at first, but being an expensive makeup product I decided that I had to use it up this summer and I fell in love with it. First of all what a better option for a makeup look that lasts all night long then a foundation that claims that in its name. Secondly, I feel like this would be a great foundation for oily skins and my skin being combination to oily reacts really well to it. I like to tone down the super mattifying effect by using my primer before and by always applying it with a beauty sponge, in my opinion, the best option if you want to escape the cakey look.
The foundation holds up amazingly well and I never powder with it, because I think it would just be too matte for my personal taste. The most time I've had it on without noticing any creasing was around 8h which is pretty amazing. 

This summer I discovered the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer. A pot concealer that I love to apply with my fingers and blend out with a sponge. This was for sure one of my best discoveries of this summer in the makeup world. I love the high coverage on this product but I also love its ability to be built up without ever looking cakey or creasing in my fine lines. This has been a game-changing product in my makeup back since I first tried it, a bit like the primer and I truly think this has deserved its own place on my makeup corner. 

I always use some setting spray to finish my makeup, especially when the products I've used are this high coverage. I opt for something that will bring all the products together and create a lovely dewy effect, I use the Mac Fix + in order to achieve that effect, but, yet again, I have talked about it in a former blog post. 
And this is the finished look using only the products mentioned. I then proceade to to the rest of my face and I am ready to rock out all night long!
This is for sure a makeup that i don't like doing every single day but when I want to go the extra mile or a plain need the extra coverage this are the products I chose to wear and I really love how they all look togheter. 
Have you tried any of this products? If not which one would you love to try?
