5 Smudge-Proof Eyeliner That Won’t Let You Down Even When it’s Hot AF

With every season comes a host of new makeup products we need to add to our stash. Colder months call for hydrating products that will help manage our dry skin and summer is all about keeping oil and sweat at bay, so our makeup doesn’t melt off our our face. We combat these warm-weather struggles with makeup products that are formulated to be waterproof and smudge-proof — plus a hefty spritz of Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray on top of it all.

So if your waterproof summer makeup routine is complete except for eyeliners that won’t budge in the humidity, look no further. Ahead, find five beauty-editor approved smudge-proof eyeliners for summer — or, well, always.

The Drugstore Must-Have Eyeliner Pencil

L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner, $11

Not only is this waterproof eyeliner cheaper than your average lunch, it’s also formulated to stay put for 24 hours — in case you have some sleepless nights in your near future. This one’s great for your waterline or your upper lash line.


The Gel Pot Eyeliner Every Cat Eye Lover Needs

Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, $11.99

If you prefer to use a mini brush to delicately perfect your liner, check out this drugstore formula that comes in three different shades: black, brown and charcoal. You can use it to create a variety of different eyeliner looks, including a thin, defined line or a thick cat eye.


The Budge-Proof Liquid Liner

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $22

Make your cat eye last all day long with this budge-proof liquid eyeliner from Stila. It comes in 12 shades ranging from periwinkle blue to intense black. The marker-like tip makes it easy to create thin and thick liner looks that won’t move all day long.


The Cult-Fave Eye Pencil in Every Color of the Rainbow

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, $25

This cult-fave eyeliner is a must-have in our makeup bag all year round, and we’re extra thankful for it in the summer months. We’re especially loving the new burnt copper shades named Lucky and Double Life.
