We’ve all been there – you get to that point in the night when the balls of your feet are burning, you’ve made a significant dent in your bank balance, and your makeup is looking far less flawless than when you walked out the door hours earlier. What was once a smooth, glowing canvas is now looking a little patchy and worn out. Definitely not something one would deem fit for any selfie or group shot moments.
Well, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté may have just changed the game (and proven that it truly does have your back when it comes to a solid night out) by releasing its newest makeup range: All Hours.
Featuring a primer, foundation, compact and concealer that are all formulated to give you up to 24 hours of flawless coverage, there’ll be zero need to touch-up, refine, or refresh your makeup.
Here’s how to use the products together to ensure that even if you can’t pull that all-nighter like a pro, your makeup can.
Start with a primer
Smooth the surface of your skin and minimise the appearance of your pores by starting your makeup application with the Yves Saint Laurent Beauté All Hours Primer. Besides creating the perfect canvas for your foundation application and ensuring a crease-free finish by the end of the night, the All Hours Primer also works to keep your complexion shine-free by absorbing excess oil and sweat.
Build your base
Waterproof, transfer-resistant, and essentially immune to the elements, the All Hours Foundation will stay put and offer an even coverage for hours on end. Thanks to a special long-wear, resistant polymer, which is rich in perlite from a volcanic rock and is able to absorb up to three-and-a-half times its weight in water, the foundation is able to endure non-stop activity, all day and all night.
And besides offering supreme longevity, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté All Hours Foundation will give you an even, matte and full-coverage finish that doesn’t look dry or cakey, yet still feels lightweight on your skin.
While you may have the impression that descriptors like ‘high coverage’ ‘long-lasting’ and ‘matte’ translate to a mask-like finish, you can be rest assured that the result will still look fresh and natural – on application and hours later when your night has wrapped up.
When you’re looking to temporarily erase redness, dark circles, blemishes and pigmentation, you want to know your artistic mastery of concealment will last. Luckily, the All Hours Concealer offers a heat resistant and sweatproof formula that can withstand up to 16 hours of your frivolities, while still looking undetectable and natural.
