You’ve put hours into honey the perfect look for that all-day (or all-night) event. You’re so chuffed with the end result you’ve even snapped a selfie or two. But just a few hours in, things have taken a turn. It’s as if your makeup is literally sliding off your face.

A trip to the loo reveals all. Your eyeshadow has created. Your mascara has left little black flecks under your eyes. Your eyeliner is starting to smudge. And as for your foundation. What foundation! It’s done a total disappearing act. Eugh.

If you doubt whether it’s possible to keep event makeup in place for more than an hour or two, then take a tip from the pros. If the Hollywood A-List can last it out through never-ending Oscars red carpets and hours-long award dos with a full face of makeup, then so can you.

Your makeup is fighting your skin’s natural oils, as well as sweat, heat and any moisture in the air, so no wonder it’s hard to keep put. But with the right products, some simple skincare, and a smart approach to application, your makeup can stick to your skin and, believe it or not, actually stay there.

We’ve rounded up a selection of game-changers that will stop your makeup sliding off your face once and for all.
