Water is everywhere is the summertime. From the humidity in the air, to the salt water in the sea, all of that extra moisture can create some cause for concern, in terms of your beauty routine at least. Between the pool parties and beach days, there’s ample opportunity for your makeup to wash away. Rather than accept defeat, we’ve rounded up all the best products that will withstand any kind of H2O the weekend sends your way.
Waterproof Woe: Wedding Day Tears
Yes, we cry at weddings–every last one of them, to be exact. We need a mascara that can hold up against those weekly (is it just us?) waterworks. Maybelline Volum’ Express One-by-One Waterproof Mascara coats every eyelash with a clump-free formula for full, flirty fringe that won’t smear after the “I do’s."
Waterproof Woe: Summertime Humidity
If humidity is your number one face makeup foe, then Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup is the foundation for you. The light, gel texture evens skin tone with a smooth, natural finish. The formula is so long-lasting and water-resistant it’s even suited for covering up imperfections on the body. Use it to conceal the unsightly scar that’s clashing with the print of your pretty sundress–not even hot summer days can compromise this camouflage.
Waterproof Woe: Pool Party Activities
Don’t let an eyeliner disaster keep you out of the water volleyball tournament, or any other aquatic activity for that matter. The aptly named Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner will outlast every super-soaked bump, set and spike. Plus, the easy to control, ultra-fine brush tip makes creating the clean, sharp lines you love a breeze.
Waterproof Woe: A Sweaty Workout
Any product that stays put after back-to-back Bikram yoga sessions (true story!) more than deserves to a place on this list. The genius of The BrowGal Skinny Eyebrow Pencil doesn’t end with its long-lasting pigment. The cap is a one-turn sharpener so you’ll never be forced to fill in with a dull pencil again. The other end houses a spoolie brush–an important final tool for flawless eyebrow shaping.
Waterproof Woe: Ocean Waves
Beach days just got a whole lot more beautiful, thanks to this inimitable eye shadow. Keep your eyes sparkling like the sea from sun up to sun down with L’Oréal Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow. The water-resistant, crease-resistant, fade-resistant formula glides on like silk, and stays put through salt-water splashes, ocean mists and more.
