The holidays are the best time to go all-out with glitters, sparkles and anything that shimmers. And it looks like Laura Mercier got the memo with the release of their Holiday 2018 Collection. Inspired by the City of Lights, the products that comprise the line evoke the desire for "illuminating moments" and "intimate reflections."

More often than not, “hectic” and “holidays” are synonymous. It’s the busiest season of the year, with parties and gatherings lined up here and there. On top of the many errands on your list, you have to make sure you look your best through it all. Put your party face on, and make sure it stays on during and even well after the merriment. Here are some steps you can take to keep your face looking fresh all night long without needing a touch-up.

Prep your skin

It’s an often overlooked step, but preparation really is key. Before you even start painting your face, make sure your canvas is ready. For a seamless application of colour products, an exfoliated and moisturised face is necessary. So go ahead and use your favourite exfoliant to lift off dead skin cells and moisturise after to ensure that you have a soft, smooth base.

Pick the right base

It’s all about using the right products. You’d want something that lasts as long as you need it to and doesn’t budge without you wanting it to. Perfect the foundation of your makeup (pun intended), before anything else. For that, the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation is your best bet. It’s a matte foundation that gives 10CM high coverage for a naturally flawless look. It also comes in 40 diverse shades, so you won’t have a hard time looking for the perfect hue for your skin tone.

Plus, it’s water- and sweat-proof, so you can dance the night away without having to worry about it wearing off while you’re enjoying. It’s also oil-free and has oil-controlling properties so you won’t need to worry about blotting either. And it’s long-lasting — really, with up to 24 hours of staying power. So you can put it on and just leave it be all through the evening.

Apply other products using light layers 

After you’ve aced your base, make sure that you don’t just pile products on hoping they would stay flawlessly. The secret is to layer your products lightly. Build them up so they stay on properly instead of putting them heavily, which will actually leave your made-up face looking cakey and flakey. Start off with a cream product before sealing it in with a powder. You can also do this for lip products. Put on a light layer of lipstick or lip liner before adding another layer of lipstick or gloss.

Avoid touching your face, seriously

It can be due to a force of habit but avoid touching your face after your makeup is set. We’re sure it’s done without an intention to swipe colour from your face but doing so, even absent- mindedly, can actually contribute to the fruit of your hard work saying goodbye easily.
