Glossies, November is in full swing! We hope you're rocking out and transforming into a true rock chic! As you prepare for party season, we wanted to share with you our top tips on keeping your makeup in place - so you can rock 'n' roll all night while still looking like a glam goddess!

Setting Spray

Of course setting spray is the easiest and most traditional way to lock your full face in place. Once your look is complete, hold your favourite setting spray a few inches away from your face and spray 2-3 times across your complexion. Let it dry and watch as your makeup stays looking fierce all night!

The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Everyone’s favourite setting spray! This clever, delicate mist is formulated with temperature control technology that makes it worth every penny! It’ll keep your makeup from melting, smudging or fading. Fantastically strong, this setting spray has up to 16 hours of lightweight staying power. So party all night glossies!


I never apply my makeup without applying my primer first! This sits underneath makeup to create a smooth base and an even-looking skin tone. There are different benefits you can pick from a primer, depending on your skin type - like hydration, pore filling or a glow boost. Whatever you choose just know it amplifies makeup coverage and keeps your makeup lasting all day!

NYX Professional Makeup Blurring Vitamin E Infused Pore Filler Face Primer Stick will be your go to this party month! It's the epitome of ‘skincare meets makeup’! With an unbelievable list of benefits! For £8, it creates a flawless base for foundation and keeps your makeup looking professional for up to 12 hours! Created with one of our favourite skincare ingredients – vitamin E – once applied your complexion will be drenched in hydration, so will lock in moisture - perfect for keeping makeup in place.


Face powders are a quick win to locking in any makeup look. When applied correctly it can reduce shine, banish creases from under your eyes, lock in your base makeup and mattify your oily patches.

I have been using the Ciaté London Extraordinary Translucent Setting Powder every day for the past few months and it’s lasted such a long time! But, as well as it being great value for money, it also set and locked in place my makeup – for any occasion! On application, this powder felt silky, soft and left my base looking and feeling smooth too! It was never drying under the eyes either. This powder is lightweight and adds a touch of radiance.

Oil Free Foundation

Oil free foundations are taking the beauty world by storm. They are built with an array of benefits, including the most important of being known for lasting longer than standard foundations. Oil-free doesn't slip and slide on your complexion, manages shine and works well with other makeup products!

L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24hr Matte Cover Foundation has been my go to this year. It's a matte, oil-free finish, lasting for up to 24 hours! This wonder by L’Oréal melts onto your skin and glides smoothly over your face for effortless, even coverage. This foundation prevents shine by absorbing all the undesirable oil on your complexion. The foundation is also sweat, heat and water-resistant - perfect to help you through any party.

Waterproof Mascara

Mascara elevates any eye look, but we all hate it when it smudges or melts away after a few moves on the dancefloor. This party season opt for a waterproof Mascara! Most formulas are infused with a special silicone that creates a water-resistant formula, waterproof mascaras are far less prone to smudging, melting or fading.

With the Rimmel Scandaleyes Volume On Demand Waterproof Mascara you get instant length, definition and curl – no curlers needed! Perfect for the glossies wanting to take centre stage! I love this mascara’s lash-grabbing wand too. Lifting each individual lash from the root, it creates the illusion of lash extensions. With extreme volume, water-proof qualities and their up to 24 hour lasting promise - you'll be partying all night while looking like a glam diva.

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
