  • Most moms know that if they ever manage to put on makeup for the day, the hardest part is trying to get it to stay there until nighttime. After all, if you’re running around with your toddler (or two!) all day, who has time for a retouch?

    If you’re investing in makeup, look for long-wearing formulas that will give you your money’s worth. Think smudge-proof, waterproof, even kiss-proof! As a busy mom, you want to look fresh all day, not a melting pot by the end of the day.

    Here are 6 smudge-proof makeup products to include in your kikay kit

    1. A foundation that does all the work for you

    Revlon has a pretty solid lineup of foundations in its arsenal, but the Colorstay Makeup is a real standout. It claims to last up to 24 hours, and based on personal experience, this foundation does not budge. It stays put and doesn’t smudge all day — even if you have combination or oily skin. Plus, the medium to heavy coverage effectively covers blemishes and lines without weighing your face down. A liquid foundation that does all the work for you — what’s not to love? Php825, Watsons

    2. On-fleek kilay that lasts up to a week? Yes!

    While it’s nice to have perfect eyebrows every day, sometimes we just don’t have the time for it. Enter K-Palette’s Lasting Tint — think of it as a semi-permanent tattoo that will give new meaning to ‘kilay is life.’ Just draw your brows, leave to “cure” for at least two hours, and when you wash it off, your kilay will look on fleek. The best part: it lasts up to seven days!

    Tip: Leave it on overnight for maximum effect. Not only will it cut your brow makeup time in half, but you won’t even have to use any additional brow product for the first few days! Php895, K-Palette

    3. A concealer that will keep you looking fresh rain or shine

    Make Up For Ever may be an expensive brand, but you know you get your money’s worth. Its Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Concealer will hide any blemish, pimple, scar, skin damage, and even birthmarks or moles, and will stay put even as you sweat or oil up. Yes, mama, you’ll look like you’ve had eight hours of sleep — all day! And while it gives heavy coverage, its lightweight formula feels easy on the skin. Php2,100, Zalora

    4. An eyeliner that won’t budge

    Even if you don’t line your eyes like a cat, you’d still want to use eyeliner — it’s a sneaky, subtle way to call attention to your eyes. It’s also the secret to making you look awake even if the kids made you stay up all night.

    The Clio Kill Black Waterproof Brush Liner is highly pigmented but hard to rub off. The pen is thick and easy to use, so it feels like you’re just drawing your flick on. Perfect for beginners! Php825, Calyxta

    5. A mascara that will stand the test of time

    There are many waterproof mascaras in the market so it’s a matter of finding one that works for you. If your problems include brittle lashes and volume, then try BYS Max Volume Lash. Its infused with vitamin E and B5 to strengthen the lashes and the jumbo brush makes it easy to amplify each hair strand, boosting volume and length. It will withstand sweat, oil, and — if you’re attending your child’s activities in school — your tears. Php599, Beauty Beat

    6. A lipstick that’s kiss-proof

    There was a time when I went to Maybelline counters in malls, and most of this lipstick’s shades were sold out for a good reason. It’s pigmented, applies evenly, dries down quickly, and stays on even after eating and drinking. And for its relatively affordable price, it really packs a punch!

    This matte formula is hard to remove, so yes, even if you swipe it on and the hubby suddenly gets the hots for you, it will stay on for hours. You can still go on date night with full lips! *wink* Php299, Zalora
