If you’re like us, you’re probably already counting down to Christmas and all the parties that come along with it. We all know these events require heavy-duty makeup that can withstand long, long hours of talking, drinking and help you survive the countless comments you’ll get from your Titas. But what we love about this season, specifically, is the license to play with different makeup looks. The first step though is choosing the face base that acts as the perfect canvass to your makeup look. Below we’ve listed down five long-wearing foundations that’ll help you navigate party season:
1. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Sans the game-changing foundation range of this product, there are many reasons why the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is much raved about. The formula is perfect for getting that “gaussian blur” effect on your skin—it diffuses pores and leaves skin shine-free. The formula is oil-free too with buildable medium to full coverage.
Wear it during your: Family reunions
The foundation is made with climate-adaptive technology that makes it resistant to sweat and humidity so this will help you survive all the games and parties in your family reunions!
2. Maybelline Super Stay 24H Full Coverage Foundation
Maybelline is a drugstore favorite because of its massive catalog of affordable but quality makeup. They’ve got more than 10 foundations in their shelves—and that’s just in the liquid format department! The Maybelline Super Stay 24H Full Coverage Foundation though, highlights longevity, claiming to deliver 24-hour high pigment wear. It doesn’t fade or shift throughout the day too and offers a lightweight formula that’s so comfy on the skin!
Wear it during your: Night out with the girls
More sangria, please! Be picture ready the whole night and make this your face base.
3. Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation
This foundation’s claim to fame? A long-wearing but lightweight formula, the Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation promises high coverage in a breathable, fade-resistant formula. The silky formula is also infused with ingredients like raspberry, apple and watermelon extracts that promise to aid and smoothen the look of your skin instantly and over time.
Wear it during your: Office dinner party

4. The Ordinary Coverage Foundation
You know we love skin-loving makeup. So when cult skincare brand The Ordinary, released this full coverage foundation, we instantly jumped on the wagon. What’s special about this foundation is its pigment suspension system that will not settle on lines and finishes a semi-matte on skin. It feels super silky when applied and camouflages spots and blemishes with the skin-like finish.
Wear it during a: Date with your SO
We love how this foundation is high coverage but still looks so natural! It’s the perfect holidate foundation that lasts all day too.
5. EB Advance Two Way Cake
For girls who like to use powder foundations, this one’s a life-saver. The Ever Bilena Advance Two Way Cake can work as a face powder and foundation. For heavier coverage, wet the sponge and apply at least a coat on the skin. It hides blemishes and evens out skin tone.
Wear it during your: Christmas Dinner with the fam
We love how multitasking this foundation is! It also is packed with moisturizing ingredients for a healthy finish so you can enjoy Noche Buena and all the fun activities after.
