Even the most expert makeup application can't fight the effects of Mother Nature. Heat, rain, mist...one minute in any of these will melt your best makeup look like ice cream at the beach! But thanks to the beauty gods, we have Waterproof Makeup.
In the old days, waterproof makeup, especially waterproof foundation, was a bit of a win-lose situation. It stayed in place, sure, but the formulas were often thick and goopy. We're happy to say, waterproof formulas have come a long way from those clunky origins. Expert refining and delicate formula-tinkering have resulted in products as elegant and wearable as their non-waterproof counterparts, but with the built-in super-power of being able to withstand water in all its forms. Read on to discover our best waterproof formulas, from waterproof concealer to waterproof lipstick and more!
Winner of Allure’s 2018 Best of Beauty Award, our lightweight Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation delivers an ultra-transforming effect for up to 30-hour wear and holds up to weather and water. Just call it the best water-resistant makeup for swimming, too! Added perk: it’s oil-free and doesn’t clog pores with its sweat-resistant formula, too!
This genius lightweight, full coverage concealer is designed to erase dark circles under eyes for up to 30H wear. It’s totally waterproof and brilliantly resistant to smudging and transferring.
From those with sensitive eyes to ones wearing contact lenses, this waterproof mascara is infused with bamboo extract and fibers for sky-high lashes with full volume and length that won’t flake or smudge.
Get the “lifted” brow look without the hassle of the salon! This easy waterproof eyebrow shaper quickly lifts, tints, and sculpts in 3 simple steps! Plus, it’s fade-resistant and smudge-resistant with all-day wear!
Discover our longest-lasting waterproof eyeliner yet! This pigment-rich eyeliner defines your eyes in an ultra-intense smooth color (metallic and matte) with up to 36-hour wear. Plus, it’s waterproof, smudge resistant, fade resistant, and sebum resistant!
It’s called Matte Ink for a reason! Once on, this ultra-pigmented liquid lipstick will not budge, even through the shower. Its applicator is shaped like an arrow, so you can precisely fill your pout with over 40 super-saturated shades.
So, how does waterproof makeup, like our Super Stay foundation, concealer and lipstick, and our Tattoostudio eyebrow and eyeliner collections work exactly? It's all thanks to the addition of special polymers that create a water-repellent shield (a little raincoat, if you will) over the pigments and other ingredients. This clear, flexible shield will keep everything it covers in place until physically removed with cleanser and makeup remover.
Waterproof makeup is for more than just wearing it in the rain. It's perfect for wearing while exercising, beaching, or when you just need a more long-wearing, all-day-long look. It stands up to wear and tear brilliantly, whereas traditional formulas might tend to feel the heat and start fading or smudging.
Addicted to your favorite formulas and not ready to switch to waterproof? We’ve got a solution for that too! Try a few spritzes of our Face Studio Lasting Fix Setting Spray, Matte Finish over your makeup, locks it all in place so it stays fresh and vibrant for hours, and leaves skin shine-free and perfectly matte.
