This week, since we’re nearing the summer season, the Makeup Wars Challenge is to share our Favorite Waterproof Makeup. Whether it’s mascara, eyeshadow or eyeliner, the main criteria is that it withstands the heat. Here are my top picks….
When I think “waterproof”, the brand that immediately comes to mind is MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creams. These cream colors are so good, that synchronized swim teams wear them. They go on like a dream, have great color-payoff and you can use on eyes or cheeks. There are tons of shades available but one of my favorite shades is #54 Pearly Mauve, from the new Summer Collection. You can use or fingers to apply, but I have and like the MUFE Eyeshadow Brush #6N for a precise application.
The waterproof eyeliner I’m obsessed with this season is the Tarte Aqualillies For Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Splash. This gorgeous aquamarine shade is universally flattering and looks amazing with gold and bronze shades.
Waterproof mascara is also another must-have; whether you’re sitting by the pool or running around town, having your mascara run in the heat is not good. I’m loving the new CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara. This mascara volumizes, defines/separates and curls. For summer, there are four limited-edition shades available, too. Love!
Cheek Color that withstands the heat can be a challenge, so I like a cream formula. Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint glides on and give a subtle flush of color wherever you need it. In three shades, I love new Summer Pink.
On lips, it’s MAKE UP FOR EVER’s #19 Pomegranate Pink, a shade from the new summer collection. This color is highly pigmented, so I apply, blot off, then apply the clear gloss to set. This shade is a great choice for the summer “bright pink lip” trend.
