1.If you’re after a long lasting pop of colour that’ll glisten and shine this NYE, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick will knock anyone’s socks off.
2.Revlon Superstay Ultimate Lipcolour Lipgloss is another glossy food and kiss-proof lip colour with a built-in ultra-conditioning top coat.
3.Keeping that just-applied look for hours, Clinique Long Lasting Lipstick is a non-drying, non-feathering lipstick has a long wearing formula that keeps lips look puckered and perfect all day and all night.
4.Giving your lips a touch of hydration, and a silky matte finish with Revlon Colourburst Matte Lip Balm Stain. This smooth textured jumbo pencil will give you a brilliant matt finish lip stain with a comfortable, balm-like feel. Infused with a triple butter complex of shea, mango and coconut for added softness and moisture.
5.Pur Cosmetics’ Pout Pen is another hydrating balm lip stain perfect for those long nights that you never want to end. Non-transferrable and long lasting, your lips certainly won’t be lonely on NYE.
6.One of my personal favourite brands for long lasting lipstick is NYX. Their Soft Matte Lip Creams are my go-to liquid lipstick of choice. Once dry, the colour lasts all day and all night and doesn’t dry out my lips like many others do. With velvety matte lips, no one will know the dry skin on your face caused your lips to chap.

7.Another little beauty hack to make lipstick last longer, is to not only line the lips with an amazing lip pencil like this one by Laura Mercier, but also, colour in the whole lip and either apply your lip colour over the top, wear on it’s own for a matte finish or glide over some gloss for the perfect pucker.
8.Don’t forget that every lip needs to be prepped, primed and thoroughly moisturised before adding any colour or lipstick that may be drying. A thin layer of Lin & Lo Nourishing Lip Balm ought to sort out any chapping or dry skin on your face caused by this horrid cold weather. (Did you know you can also use lip balm for dry skin?)

9.To guarantee your lipstick pulls an allnighter, once your lippie of choice is dry, paint on some Lipcote Lipstick Sealer to set your lipstick for unbudgeable, un-smudgable steadfastness you’ve never seen before. No marking, no staining, no feathering. What more does a girl want on New Year's Eve?
10.For the ultimate New Year’s Eve pout, Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre is a must have. This glossy, nutrient rich lip gloss will leave your lips hydrated, moisturised and camouflage your chapped lips caused by extreme dry skin on your face.
