Sweet, sweet summertime — well, unless you’re in the middle of a recording breaking heatwave. With the humidity seriously cramping our style, we’re bringing you the best waterproof beauty picks to help you stay perfectly pretty poolside.
Seriously, HollywoodLifers, could this summer get any hotter? As if the humidity wasn’t bad enough, the constant heat has us making a bee-line for the beach or pool — which means that makeup is gone faster than you can say “air conditioning.” To help you keep your makeup in one place while you’re sweating on your way to work or cannon-balling into a pool, make sure to check out all of our waterproof beauty picks in the gallery below.
Waterproof Beauty Products: Skincare
When it’s hotter than hot and you’re consonantly trying to hit up the pool, it’s so important to make sure your skin is protected. And when you’re sweating and in the water, it’s important that your skincare is waterproof. For overall body protection, we adore La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-in Sunscreen Milk, because we can literally feel it sinking into our skin without leaving behind any greasy residue. We also love Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Moisturizer because it’s completely organic while providing awesome sun protection.
When you’re sweating, the last thing you want to do is clog up your pores. That’s why we’re big fans of Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, which keeps our pores clean while providing some extra SPF 20 protection for our faces. To make sure we still have a little glow on our cheeks, we’re big fans of Tarte Waterproof Eye And Cheek Palette, which wont budge — no matter how humid it gets. For those of you who are chasing after a more beachy and bronzed look, we recommend Tarte Bronzer & Cheek Tint.
Eye Makeup That Won’t Budge
We understand that most of you would never set foot outside without mascara, so we also have great waterproof eye makeup recommendations. First and foremost, we’re big fans of Merle Norman Lash Lift Waterproof Mascara, because it doesn’t dry out our lases like some waterproof formulas are prone to. For ladies who love their non-waterproof mascara and don’t want to part with it, try Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat. This clear gel seals any mascara to make it instantly waterproof, all while plumping and re-hydrating lashes.
For those who love eyeliner, we recommend Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, because these suckers literally don’t budge all day — even when we’re dripping sweat on a subway platfrom, so no touch-ups are required! For those who need to be sure their mascara won’t flake or clump, use Stila Waterproof Volumizing Mascara. We also love Two Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner because of the soft smudger that’s on the end of the pencil — who ever said you couldn’t rock a smokey eye in the heat?
