9 Beauty Buys That Will Actually Last All Night

Nothing kills night-out vibes faster than accidentally switching our camera to selfie mode to find our concealer, although meticulously applied, is slipping away. Or that the falsies we spent so much time applying are dangerously close to drooping down our face. As beauty enthusiasts, so much of the fun of going out is creating that perfect, on-point look — so losing our glam before we've even made it to our post-pregame locale is a serious downer.
If you know the feels — and are tired of hastily blotting your T-zone in a dingy dive-bar bathroom or deleting every group shot after a GNO — read on. With a little research and a lot of trial and error, we've uncovered the no-fail products that'll stay put as long as we stay out. From Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray, which delivers an ultra-fine, temperature-controlling mist to lock makeup in place, to a body bronzer that won't streak or run, these buys are essential additions to every night owl’s beauty routine. Add ‘em to your lineup — and get back on the dance floor, stat.

For a streak-free, natural-looking body bronzer that blurs imperfections, stays put all night, and delivers a radiant glow, Vita Liberata's Body Blur formula is our go-to choice. The best part? The lightweight formula doesn't rub off on clothes or leave behind that unpleasant at-home-tanner smell, either.

Urban Decay's All Nighter line is the hero all party people deserve. First up: the full-coverage, oil-absorbing foundation (in 24 varied shades, no less), which outlasts sweat and shine and never feels cakey. Next, to cover our dark circles and conceal tough-to-hide spots (from whatever trouble we found ourselves in the evening before), we tap on the oil-absorbing, light-diffusing concealer formula for all-night coverage. To lock in the finished look, we reach for the line's lightweight, paraben-free setting spray, which regulates temperature (preventing makeup from slipping off or settling into lines), while keeping makeup fresh and totally untouched.

Nothing is worse than devoting an hour to prepping and styling our hair just to have it wilt in the first half of the night.

If you're like us and prone to chipping your mani every time you venture out of the house, this base- and topcoat set from Butter London is for you. When used in tandem, the dynamic duo seals in color and delivers long-lasting, gel-manicure-like results — without the harsh, damaging ingredients of actual gel formulas.

What's a night out without our favorite sultry scent? This intoxicating blend of bourbon, oakwood, and tuberose lingers on the skin all night and is the perfect size to tuck into a purse for lightning-quick touch-ups.

A favorite amongst the beauty-blogger community, these natural-looking, lightweight lashes add length and volume and can be worn up to 15 times. Plus, the thicker band makes applying them a cinch (a major plus for false-lash newbies) and helps them stay put longer than the competition by giving lash glue a larger surface area to stick to.

When it comes to lash glue, most formulas are decidedly hit or miss. Luckily, this waterproof, paraben- and sulfate-free formula lives up to the hype, keeping falsies securely in place through sweat, tears, and oily lids — or whatever else the night throws our way.
