Kiss and Makeup

In the movies, the prom queen gets stuck in the rain and ends up with the perfect smokey eye and a totally sultry case of surfer girl waves (amazing!) but in real life, tears, sweat and inclement weather can make our made-up faces look downright freaky.  If you've ever taken a bathroom break at a fancy fête, only to discover that you have mascara running down your face or lipstick that's turned to warpaint, I've found the perfect thing for you.   

Urban Decay's All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray To Go is a travel-size, technologically advanced spray that's formulated to resist moisture, holding your foundation, eye shadow, blush and concealer in place to keep you looking flawless for up to 16 hours.  The Temperature Control Technology prevents makeup meltdowns when it's warm and avoids cracking when it's cold.  Plus, the fine mist is super light and easy to use:  just apply makeup as per usual, shake the bottle, then spray All Nighter in an "X" and "T" formation over your face.  Finally, an answer for brides, prom princesses and party girls alike, so you can 'fearlessly sweat, cry, or get your Jacuzzi on'.  Genius!  

Urban Decay's All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray To Go ($18) is at Sephora now. 

P.S - Okay, the Shawn Desman video is the ultimate in cheese but don't be a hater - it's totally worth your 4 minutes (and yes, the hot teacher is Kim from SYTYCD Canada) Come on, tell me you don't love it!  Other fave  choreographed dance scenes:  Grease, Can't Buy Me Love (African Anteater Ritual, anyone?) West Side Story and Dirty Dancing, of course.
