While you're out partying, your makeup should be the least of your worries. Below, we detail the seven steps that can give you a look that lasts through heat, sweat, and fun!
1. Use a longwearing, transfer-resistant foundation.
No matter your skin type, a longwearing foundation with good coverage and matte finish is a party essential. Look for a foundation that doesn't transfer on your clothes as well, because you don't want to ruin yours or your date's while dancing the night away!

Out of all the things on this list, your brows should be the most party-proof!

4. Prime your eyes.
An eyeshadow provides a barrier between the skin and your eye makeup, so if you have some on your lids, sweat and oil are less likely to ruin your look.

5. Make your eyeliner smudgeproof.
If you're going to commit to wearing eyeliner to a party, better make sure that it won't smudge. You don't want to spend the night looking like a panda!

6. Stick to transfer-proof lip products.
Touching up your lipstick is always a hassle, especially if you don't have access to good lighting and a mirror all the time. So even before you leave the house, swipe on a lipstick that you trust will stay through any meal and drink!

7. Set your makeup with a setting spray.
You should never forget to set your makeup before going out, and a generous spritz of a setting spray is key to budgeproof makeup that doesn't look cakey.
