6 Water-Proof Products for the Summer
Looking for a few water-proof products to help maintain your makeup look during the summer? Look no further! We’re giving you a rundown of some beauty products—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands— to start using ASAP this season.
Summer can be a challenging time for our makeup. We’re constantly on the hunt for long-lasting formulas that can withstand some fun outdoors this season…including a splash of water to cool off. For a few of our go-to beauty products that are up for the challenge, read on!
We all want the appearance of even, flawless-looking complexions, but there’s nothing pretty about foundation that slides off after a quick dip in the pool. When we’re heading out for a long summer day or even if the forecast is predicting an afternoon sun shower, we like to reach for a long-lasting liquid foundation, like Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation. This ultra-pigmented liquid foundation delivers a full-coverage finish in just a single layer, and can help keep excess shine under control.
Bronzer is one of our favorite products to use during the summer months. It can help give your skin a sun-kissed glow while adding a touch of definition. We love reaching for a waterproof bronzer that stays in place through sweat and humidity. For a more long-lasting glow, try a self-tanner formulated specifically for the face!
Few things are worse than dripping mascara by midday. Reach for a waterproof mascara can help keep you from experiencing that pesky under-eye smudge. One of our favorite waterproof mascaras is L’Oreal Paris Feline Waterproof Mascara. The ultra-glossy black formula helps add volume and fullness to lashes for an enhanced look!
Editor’s note: Forget what you heard, waterproof mascara doesn’t have to be a pain to remove. If you’re having trouble, reach for any of our favorite gentle eye makeup removers listed here!
Eyelid primer can help lock your eye makeup in place, and often helps boost color-payoff and overall pigmentation. NYX Professional Makeup Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer is an ideal option for the hot summer months when you may take a dip or experience a beautiful sun shower, as it can help intensify the look of your eyeshadow and keep it in place, no matter the weather!
We all know how hard it can be to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner look, so once things are in place we want them to stay put! We love using waterproof liner year-round, but especially so in the summer when we’re heading to the pool, beach, or other outdoor destination. Need a product rec? Try Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen. This precision liner can help you get the look you want—whether it’s a thick solid line or a weathered-out wing—in a deep shade of black. What’s more, the eyeliner’s free-flowing ink makes application smooth and effortless, and since this formula is waterproof, rest assured you will not be running to the bathroom to touch up any feathering or smudging!
For a lip color that can withstand eating, drinking, and even swimming, a matte lippie is our go-to choice. Most formulas require a little elbow grease to take-off, and that’s just what we want when we’re heading outdoors— a fuss-free, long-lasting lip color.
When it comes time to remove your favorite mate lipstick, we recommend reaching for a product designed to do just that. Urban Decay’s Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick glides on like a lipstick but does just the opposite— it melts away any hard-to-remove lip products without stripping the lips of moisture.
TAKE IT OFF
Finding long-wear formulas to use are only half the battle. You’ll also need to arm yourself with the proper cleansers and makeup removers to help take it all off at the end of the day. Try Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil Stick. The formula offers the benefits of an oil cleanser in a convenient stick package, and so much more! Upon application, the formula transforms from a balm to liquid oil to a micro-foam, ensuring that even stubborn makeup gets lifted and washed away. It’s great for waterproof eye makeup and matte lipsticks, and not to mention ideal for travel!
For your waterproof eye makeup, consider Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. Simply shake to activate this dual-action formula to help remove makeup while leaving the eye contour feeling comfortable.
