Obviously, you need some great long lasting, waterproof products to look great at the pool or the beach.
1. To conceal: Effacernes – Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer. This product covers dark circles and won’t settle into creases under your eyes. “Obviously concealer works wonders for dark circles and other skin imperfections. It actually works great for makeup imperfections, too! Dab a small amount of concealer on a brush to sharpen liquid liner or help define brows,” Sandy says.
2. Primer is a must. Try Lancôme ‘Aquatique’ Waterproof EyeColour Base. “Primer may seem like a tedious step, but it’s worth it. The skin on your lids can get extremely oily, especially in warm, humid weather. Make sure your hands are freshly washed before applying with your fingertips.” This will keep eyeshadows from evaporating and creasing in the heat.

3. Come hither eyes with Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner. This waterproof liner seriously stays put! You’ll never need to sharpen the innovative twisting pencil. It comes in black, brown and gray, but also in blue and purple! Sandy says: “Brightly colored liner is a great way to add color to your summer look. Teals, blues, and purples can really make eyes pop! Pair with a neutral lip.”
4. Mess proof mascara: Lancôme Hypnôse Star 24H Waterproof Mascara. “For full lash coverage, make sure you’re bringing the brush to the root of the lashes. Give the brush a little wiggle for extra lash separation. Allow the formula to dry and feel free to apply a second coat if you’re going for a more dramatic look.”
