3 ways to lock your night-out makeup down

Your night out makeup has a lot to live up to. You want your look to totally slay, but you also need it to last through hours of dancing. We've pulled together the top three hacks to add to your getting-ready routine, so that flawless feline flick and on-point pout will stay in place all night. 

1. Make time to prime

Priming your skin is a must if you want your foundation to lock in place, so apply one after your moisturiser but before you put any base makeup on. #Insta Flawless Primer, £6.99, is perfect for late nights, as it comes with a glow-boosting tint that evens out your skin tone, and looks great when the camera comes out. 

2. Learn your lines

Liquid liners, like Colour Precise Eyeliner, £5.99, already have good lasting power, but you can double it up with a hack that locks that cat-eye down for longer. Once you've drawn on your flicks, grab a powder eyeshadow in a matching colour (try Mono Eyeshadow in Black Fender, £4.49), and trace it over the top using an ultra fine liner brush. 

3. Lock lipstick in place

Not only is this hack going to make your lipstick last even longer, it also helps your lips appear plumper - and it takes seconds to do. When applying the Match Perfection Foundation, £7.99, to the rest of your face, simply blend a small amount over your pout and it will act as a long-wear base - just draw in the shape of your lips with a lipstick over the top. We love Moisture Renew Lipstick in Mayfair Red Lady, £6.49, for a night out-ready red.
