As much as I wish it wasn’t true…water, humidity and warm weather do not typically mix well with eye makeup. We’ve all probably been through the embarrassing moment when we dove into a pool feeling like a goddess, and surfaced looking like something out of a horror movie. Fortunately, the raccoon eye can be a thing of the past thanks to many of the waterproof beauty products available this season. Be sure to check out some of my favorite waterproof beauty products that will keep your face fresh and smudge free!
L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof
This mascara will stay on your lashes all day, even in the most humid of conditions. It comes in a variety of shades (my favorite: Blackest Black) and will not clump your lashes together easily. I found this mascara makes lashes look much fuller and longer for an extended period of time. The best part is the price range is very affordable!
Yves St Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara
Even though it’s a bit on the more pricey side (approx $30.00 USD) this mascara works wonders to create lashes that almost look fake. The large brush allows for an easier application, and promises 24 hours of fuller lash look. The mascara is available in four colors, the traditional Charcoal and Brown, and for the more adventurous, Violet and Blue.
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara
This mascara is, and probably always will be, a classic. The applicator creates lashes that separate and do not clump, and this same technology can be applied with its waterproof mascara to create a look that will not smudge all day. My favorite part of this mascara is that it does not pull lashes when you cleanse your face, which other mascaras can sometimes do.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
If you’re a fan of liquid eyeliner, you can still enjoy all its perks during the warmer months thanks to this waterproof liner. This eyeliner applies just like regular liquid eyeliner, creating a smooth and even line over the lashes. If you like to “wing” your liner for “cat-eye-look”, this liner may be the perfect option for you, given its precise pen-like applicator.
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner
I absolutely love this liner. It comes in so many different shades that can compliment your eye color (my favorite: Jade). It also applies so smoothly, making it easy to create a straight and even line. The applicator winds up or down when you need to use it…so you can go ahead and ditch your eye pencil sharpener.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint
This lip tint will add moisture and color to your lip throughout the day. The applicator looks similar to a large crayon, and applies color to the lip very smoothly. The bright colors available are perfect for the spring season, including bold colors like bright poppy red and coral.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
Available in both bright and neutral tones…this stain offers something for every make-up lover out there. The stain lasts hours, and keeps lips feeling moisturized and sexy. Even though it’s important to wear waterproof mascara and liner in the warmer months…it’s always safe to keep a tint around for busier days.
Don’t let your make-up hold you back from diving in…there are plenty of waterproof beauty products to keep you looking you’re best as we head into the spring season!
