Makeup With Staying Power

We’re gearing up for one of the warmest summers we’ve ever had. The temperatures are soaring above 40 degrees and while we may be sizzling underneath our clothes, the last thing we want is to give it all away with our make-up sliding down our face. We’ve done the research and found some of the best products to last all day long, keeping you looking fresh and bright without the shine.


Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Make Up

There is so much to love about this product. It withstands heat, sweat and humidity so you know your face is going to look flawless all day. It is oil-free, fragrance-free, dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types in a great range of shades, so you can bet there will be one just right for you. 24 hour expiry means you don’t need to worry about post-lunch touchups!


Nars Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eye Shadow Base
Revlon ColorStay 12-Hour Eye Shadow
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

It’s important to prime for long lasting wear, and the unsightly gathering of eye shadow in the folds of our eyelids is something we’ll happily steer clear of with this Nars eye shadow base! Then pick any colour you can think of with the Revlon eye shadows which will stay fresh for a good 12 hours. If you tend to line your eyes also, we suggest Stila as your go-to brand. Being waterproof as well as an all-day-stay product means it’s a winner with us.


CoverGirl Natural Lash Clear Mascara

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector

The last thing we want is wild woolies above our eyes, it’s important to ensure your eyebrows are tame and tailored. Keep them in check by brushing the Covergirl clear mascara over them after filling in sparse spots with the corrector. These two are an eyebrow perfect combo.


Revlon Fabulash Waterproof Mascara

Is this the most durable mascara ever? We think so! Not a crumble or smudge in sight, it coats on thick and stays for the entire working day, and well into the night.


Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

Boasting new technology that is food-proof and requires no touchups throughout the day, we love these! Rimmel showcases colours that really pop, and the creamy conditioning treatment included in the endless shades of the Revlon Colorstay makes them a perfect pout option.

swiish tip:

Feeling like not even everlasting make-up is going to do the trick? Pick up some MAC Blot Film for $12.50 from any MAC counter. Keep this handy Hollywood staple in your bag and instead of caking more powder on, blot the shine away. Revlon, Maybelline, CoverGirl, Rimmel are all available at Big W. Nars & Stila are both available at Mecca Cosmetica. Make Up For Ever is available online at
