6 Waterproof Beauty Products for Summer
Summer can be a challenging time for makeup. We’re constantly on the hunt for long-lasting formulas that can withstand some seasonal fun outdoors — including a splash in the pool to cool off. Ahead, find our go-to waterproof makeup products that have proven they’re worthy and up to the challenge.
We all want the appearance of even, flawless-looking skin, but there’s nothing worse than having your foundation slide 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 Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Hydrating Foundation. This ultra-pigmented liquid foundation delivers a full-coverage finish that can withstand water and keep excess shine under control.
Bronzer is one of our favorite products to use during the summer months. It can give your skin a sun-kissed glow while adding a touch of definition. For a waterproof bronzer that will stay in place no matter how humid it gets, try L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer.
Few things are more frustrating than having your mascara run down your face with just the smallest amount of water – or sweat. Reach for a waterproof mascara to stop that pesky under-eye smudge. We like L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Waterproof Lengthening Mascara. Not only will it deliver fullness and volume, but it will stay in place until you’re ready to take it off at the end of the day.
An eyelid primer can help lock your eye makeup in place and even boost color-payoff. Lancôme Primer It Boost It is a great option for the hot summer 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 finally in place, we want them to stay that way. If you’re looking for a long-wear, waterproof eyeliner that won’t budge give L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner a try. The precision liner glides on to give you a creamy color that lasts up to 24 hours.
For a lip color that can withstand eating, drinking and swimming, a matte lippie is our go-to choice. Because the summer heat can be dry as is, you’ll want your matte lipstick to still be moisturizing and not drying. In that case, we reach for the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipsticks.
Finding waterproof formulas to wear in the summer is only half the battle — the other half is taking it off at the end of the day. To accomplish this and remove even the most stubborn long-wear formulas try a cleansing balm like the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Balm and tackle stubborn eye makeup with Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover.
