Fireworks Night is an absolute staple in our festive diary. Whether you love the party atmosphere, the beautiful illuminations, or just the mulled wine, Guy Fawkes is one of the most fun nights of the year. What is not fun, however, is getting home afterwards to find that wind, cold weather or even (heaven forbid) rain, has caused your makeup to look like it was applied with a makeup brush attached to a Catherine wheel. Luckily all you have to do is follow our tips to make sure your Guy Fawkes beauty look is just as banging as the fireworks.
Primed and ready
Since it’s November, venturing out into the night means that your skin will likely be up against cold temperatures and inclement weather. Make sure it’s as prepared to have fun as you are by starting out with a hydrating moisturiser then applying a primer to ensure makeup stays where it’s put.
The foundations of a good night out
Once your skin is prepped, you’ll want to apply a long-lasting foundation that’s up to the task of being weather-proof. We love both Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation and Revlon ColorStay for their long-lasting, tough, and touch-proof formulas that won’t rub off on hats or scarves.
Eye <3 fireworks
Biting winds and chilly temperatures can make your eyes water (as can the odd surprisingly bright firework), not to mention the high chance of drizzle. To avoid looking like a winter panda, invest in a good waterproof mascara for your night out.
Light up your face
Last but not least, you don’t want the entertainment to outshine you. Guy Fawkes is the perfect time to experiment with glowing makeup and colours as bright as the fireworks themselves. Highlight with an illuminating concealer or a highlighting kit or go wild with a brightly coloured eyeshadow palette or a colourful lipstick
