clinique superfit. THat stuff stayed all freakin’ day! i slept in it and it was still there in the morning. i finally got sweaty (a slight glisten) by 11pm though after dancing for a solid couple of hours.

Hairspray makes me break out and is too sticky for my taste.

I like bare escentuals and laura mercier, but i highly highly highly recommend a makeup artist for the day of. i saw the clinique lady and she was FABuloso. She’s getting all the pics of my girls in their makeup too for her personal portfolio.

Lorac is a great long lasting lipstick!  Get it at Sephora.

Wait, what is this hairspray trick you speak of? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of it.

My makeup artist used MAC products, which was my first experience with them, and everything held up wonderfully. If you really want long lasting I suggest looking into makeup primers. They have primers for your lids, lips, and face and they really help with staying power. They also have a spray you can apply after you’re done appying all your makeup to help everything stay which is probably way better for your face than hairspray.

Lorac for lipstick – hands down

use a primer (mac or makeup for ever) for face and eyes before you put on your foundation etc

love nars foundation tho mac has a powder-liquid foundation that is great too

nycbride09 offers a great tip for making sure your makeup lasts – PRIMER!!!  I use Benefit “that gal” brightening face primer and my makeup lasts a long night of tearing up the dance floor.  It smells de-lish too!!
