In my experience, waterproof or long-wearing makeup can be a little tricky. Yes, not having to reapply is great, but I often find that the tradeoff is thicker, chalkier, and less natural-looking than non-longwear makeup. One of the exceptions: waterproof mascara, which is simply a necessity when summer hits, whether you’re by the beach or pool or simply navigating your city’s sweltering humidity (that would be me).
These days, waterproof mascara formulas are better than ever, and whether you prefer a mineral-based formula, a curling wand, or even a waterproof topcoat so you don’t have to give up your beloved lash-lengthener when the mercury rises, there is a smudge and sweat proof tube for you. Click through to meet the mascara that will save your gaze this summer!
