On the most magical night of the year, you have a lot of things to think about. The color and length of your dress, whether you want to wear your hair up or down (or half up), which kind of shoes to wear during and after the prom, if you’re going to go with a date, and the list goes on forever. You’ll have an amazing time at prom no matter what, but looking great from the beginning of pictures to the limo ride home will ensure that you’ll feel great all night, too.
Even though there are plenty of things that can’t possibly be glamorous all night long (like your feet hurting from dancing), there are certain products you can use to ensure you don’t have any makeup malfunctions in Instagram pictures. Long-wear lipstick, a.k.a. an answer to beauty-obsessed girls everywhere, is a fantastic solution to the possible smudging, smearing and all together hot mess opportunities that come with wearing a lipstick.
We’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite non-smudge, long-wear lipstick that will keep your smile bright and pristine on the dance floor, through dinner hour and beyond. Whichever shade you decide on is up to you, but choosing a long lasting product is a must!
