Beauty: What’s New In Waterproof Makeup

May 27, 2014 • Beauty, Magazine


Nothing will ruin your summer faster than makeup running down your face. Water, humidity and hot temperatures do not do a freshly made up up face any favors. Waterproof mascara has been around forever, but it usually did a number on your eyelashes. Who of us hasn’t had an embarrassing moment when we dove into a pool feeling like a goddess, and surfaced looking like something out of a horror movie. Fortunately, we have come a long way when it comes to the wide array of  waterproof beauty products available this season. Here are some of my new favorite waterproof beauty products that will keep your face fresh and smudge free!

1. Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof, $14

Speaking of coming a long way, Sephora has really stepped up their game when it comes to their own makeup line. These jumbo eye pencils are available in 31 shades that can be used as eyeliners or blended out as eye shadows. They are resistant to water, heat and humidity for up to 12 hours.

2. Giorgio Armani ‘Eyes to Kill’ Waterproof Mascara, $32
