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.
Unlike other longwear formulas, which are often heavy, this fluid foundation is super lightweight. The fade-free formula can be layered to cover blemishes, dark spots, and redness, and it will stick to skin even after a swim.
Available in seven sunny shades, this water-resistant cream can be swiped on cheeks for a natural-looking flush that doesn’t disappear — no matter the forecast. Enriched with vitamin E, the nourishing formula is also a good pick for lips.
While most makeup artists will tell you that liquid liners last longer than pencils, this creamy pick delivers dependable color. Whether you draw on a precise cat-eye or smudge it out for a smokier effect, it will stay put all day.
Not only does this mascara lengthen, thicken, and curl lashes, but it refuses to budge — whether you are swimming in the ocean or schlepping through the city — thanks to a microcrystalline wax that clings to each baby hair.
On one side is a pigmented lip liner that prolongs the wear of lip color; on the flip, is a super-saturated lipstick. While it’s designed to deliver serious staying power, it’s also formulated with antioxidant-rich grape seed extract, coconut oil, and jojoba seed oil to keep lips from looking dry or cracked.
