Top Waterproof Makeup

By

Summertime is the perfect time of year to need waterproof makeup. Whether you’re swimming, hitting the beach, or if you’re just going out into the sweltering temperatures of summer then you definitely need makeup that won’t slide off of your face. Of course waterproof makeup can also be needed during weddings, funerals, or other times throughout the year. Sure you can use a makeup primer or sealer, but if your makeup product itself is waterproof then you won’t have to worry about the dreaded makeup meltdown.

1. Makeup For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup

This top-selling formula is a water-based gel that contains no emulsifiers, and is completely natural. So if you’re looking for something for aging skin or a foundation that’s hydrating, then you need to look elsewhere. The purpose of this foundation is to offer a water-proof foundation that feels super light, but gives you a natural and satin finish. Makeup For Ever does state that the foundation can be used on fine lines and large pores, but it is mostly formulated for normal skin types. The bonus is that you can use it as body makeup as well, so if you have an imperfection on your décolleté or anywhere else you use this foundation to get the job done well.

This concealer is a full-coverage concealer that’s also waterproof at the same time. It’s infused with vitamins A and E, plus it’s made from Amazonian clay which nourishes your skin while completely covering any discoloration or imperfection. The clay also acts as a skin balancer, meaning that it helps reduce redness and flakiness while working to improve the overall texture of your skin. The bonus is that the coverage is actually buildable, even though the formula is thicker. So you can easily hide any imperfection, dark circle, age spot, freckle or blemish without any problem.

The bonus is that it’s also infused with skin-softening pigments which work hard to improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin all day long no matter how humid the day may be.

Most lip liners on the market are definitely not waterproof, but Sephora has one that is waterproof and retractable as well. One end features the lip liner while the other end of the pencil offers a brush. It comes in a very wide variety of colors, it is very affordable, and not having to search for a sharpener is a plus.

A waterproof lip gloss? You bet! Thanks to Makeup For Ever anyway. The transparent mini-tube is easy to place in your pocket or your purse, so you have instant access to a beautifully beige neutral and waterproof lip gloss. The formula in non-drying, which is surprising since it’s waterproof, and the infusion of vanilla may remind you of vanilla cupcakes. So the bad thing is that you may be tempted to eat it off of your lips.

Not exactly waterproof, but it is water-resistant so even though you can’t technically swim in this eyeliner you can wear it in heat and humidity without concern. It’s also a good eyeliner for weddings, or any time when you may think of tearing up. The gel-base makes this eyeliner very easy to apply, allowing it to glide on smoothly and effortlessly. Once in place it quickly dries down to a water-resistant finish, so you can get on with life without worrying about raccoon eyes.

Diorshow is one of the top mascaras on everyone’s list, and if you haven’t tried it yet then you’re definitely missing out. Whether you’ve wore the mascara or not you have to give the waterproof formula a shot. Many waterproof mascaras tend to be less than the regular formula, but Dior knows mascara and they formulate their waterproof Diorshow perfectly. This mascara lengthens, thickens, and curls while giving you waterproof coverage for the beach, pool, the summer heat, or anytime you need to shed a tear or two. The bonus is that it’s not only available in black and brown, but a fun blue hue as well.
