The Best Waterproof Makeup To Stock Up On For Summer

Sure, it’s the perfect time of year to go with a bare-faced beauty look, but summertime calls for poolside parties, beach days, music festivals, and other outdoor opportunities where you may want to cover the dark circles under your eyes, apply a few swipes of mascara or wear colorful eyeliner. That’s where waterproof makeup comes in. Not to mention the fact that the heat and humidity can cause a complete makeup meltdown no matter where you are headed. So, from foundations that stay put to lip color that lasts to mascara that won’t smudge, we’ve rounded up the best swim- and sweat-proof makeup products you’ll want to stock up on for summer.
