Waterproof Makeup for Summer

Waterproof Makeup for Summer

Don’t Let H2O Ruin your Makeup this Summer




It’s summertime! That means pools, lakes, rivers, oceans, and most likely, quite a bit of sweat. While it’s the time for having fun and splashing about, it’s not a time for your standard eye cosmetics. Most products aren’t waterproof, meaning you’ll end up with panda eyes and large streaks down the face as soon as you dive into that refreshing pool of water.

Once upon a time, many women balked at the idea of H2O getting in the way of their summer makeup, but today it doesn’t have to stop you from getting all pretty. All you’ve got to do is to stock up on waterproof cosmetics and you’ll never know the difference!

You’re probably sat there with your vacation magazines dreaming of faraway places. Your makeup is probably the last thing on your mind. What many women don’t realize is that while your mascara does run in the heat, it’s not the only eye makeup that’s affected. Everything has the potential to run, including cream-based eye shadows right through to your eyeliner.



Despite it being summer and vacation time, it’s still possible you’ll wakeup looking tired and drained with dark circles under eyes. After all it’s a time for partying, late night socializing and fun in general. This doesn’t mean you should have to go outside wearing a paper bag over your head; you can easily disguise your previous night’s shenanigans by applying a waterproof concealer directly onto those bothersome bags under eyes.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Concealer offers you around 15 hours of safe waterproof coverage. It’s easy to use and it conceals all those darker areas perfectly.

Lancome Waterproof Eye Color Base is essential to use if you’re the kind of girl who can’t leave home with a pretty color on her eyelids. Prepping your eyes with this silky product with a smooth finish will help prime your eyes and hold the eye shadow in place, meaning you won’t have to worry that you’re not looking your best when you bump into friends on the promenade.

Regular eyeliner also can potentially have a mind of its own when it comes into contact with moisture.  And since you’re already splashing out on other waterproof cosmetics, why not go the full hog and get decent eyeliner which is waterproof as well?



Glo-Minerals Precision Eye Pencil will do the trick. There’s no need to shy away from wearing eyeliner just because there’s too much humidity. But this perfect eyeliner, which is water-resistant and full of antioxidants, will answer all your prayers. With its infusion of natural minerals and ingredients, anyone can wear it, even if you’ve got sensitive eyes.

The worst is when your mascara goes all over your face, making you look like you’ve been sobbing for days. When your usual non-waterproof mascara comes into contact with water, it’ll run rivers down your face. If the unsightly streaks aren’t enough, they’re really difficult to remove with just water; and let’s face it, who thinks to carry eye makeup remover around with them? And who really wants to? Investing in a good waterproof mascara for the summer is an absolute must!

MAC Zoom Waterfast Lash is not only waterproof it’s also smudge free, meaning you’ve got less of a chance of botching up your makeup in the first place.

This waterproof mascara with its waterproof consistency is easily applied and is heat, sweat and tear resistant (not that anyone cries in the summertime)! But the best news is that it can last for up to 12 whole hours, meaning you can literally spend the whole day sunning yourself at the beach and not worry about your makeup!
