As much as possible, opt for a primer designed for use under heavy studio lights, so you’ll know that your beauty look will look perfect underneath your friend’s makeshift disco ball.

2. Use a Transfer-Resistant, Longwearing Foundation

A longwearing foundation with a matte finish and good coverage is every girl’s part essential. Also, opt for a foundation that won’t transfer on clothes, since you surely wouldn’t want to ruin your or your date’s get-up as you dance and party the night away.

3. Say No to Smoky Eyes

Adding sparkles and blending smoky eyeshadow on your lids may seem like a good idea around 7pm, but that wouldn’t be the case if you’ll be partying ‘til dawn. Instead of wearing dark eye makeup, apply a waterproof and longwearing liquid liner on your eyelids. Use this as an opportunity to show off your perfect cat eye instead of your perfect panda eyes.

4. Stick With Transfer-Proof Lip Products
