It’s a nice, humid day you’ll be spending at a park with friends and family. To get ready, you apply usual make-up: mascara, eyeliner and foundation. You get there feeling and looking your best, but an hour or so later, you realize you’re sweating and make up is rubbing off quickly.
This is a common problem during the hot summer months, but it can be prevented. We love spending time outdoors, but we want to look our best and feel confident without worrying about make up running or smudging. Waterproof makeup is not only good for days spent at the pool, but also for any hot, humid summer day spent outdoors.
Here is a list of long-lasting waterproof mascaras, eyeliners and foundations:
When you think of runny makeup, mascara usually comes to mind. If you’re spending the day at the beach or in the pool, but still want to have long, voluminous lashes, you’ll want to use waterproof mascara:
Blinc Kiss Me Tube Mascara
This mascara is higher in price, but uses a new water-resistant technology, forming tubes around your lashes to prevent the mascara from running or smudging. It may be a little more challenging to apply and remove than other mascaras, but it will last you all day.
Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara
If you’re going to get waterproof mascara, why not try one that has been tested in the ocean? Sweat and water can not get this mascara to budge. It’s the perfect product to use if you’re spending a day in the water.
Great Lash Mascara
This mascara works well and is also one of the more affordable brands. It will stay on without flaking or smudging while also keeping length and volume all day.
Eyeliner is also troublesome because it tends to fade quickly and smudge easily. There are waterproof or water-resistant options in both liquid and pencil form:
Blinc Liquid Eyeliner
Liquid eyeliner tends to stay on a lot longer, but if it’s not water-resistant, it will usually run down just like mascara when water is applied. This eyeliner will last all day and won’t run if you go for a swim in the pool. It also has a well-designed brush for easy application.
Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil
Urban decay has a variety of well-made eye products and the glide-on eye pencil is one of them. Pencil eyeliner usually tends to fade fast, but this eyeliner will last. There is an assortment of beautiful colors you can choose from to match your eye color.
Foundation is the most susceptible to wearing off or smearing from sweat. You’ll want some waterproof foundation around for those hot days. It’s challenging to find foundations that are entirely waterproof, but there are water and sweat resistant foundations that will last longer than others:
Make Up Forever Face and Body Liquid Foundation
This foundation is very natural looking and light. It will blend well with your skin and stay on throughout the day. It also covers well without clogging pores and causing acne.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup
This is a heavier foundation, but it covers even the toughest areas and also helps protect the skin with SPF 15.
Try any of these products and you’ll be amazed by how much longer your make up lasts. During the humid summer months, regular make up just doesn’t cut it. With waterproof makeup, you will feel confident this summer knowing your make up will stay in place.
