Water, humidity, and heat have a knack for spoiling a perfectly made-up face. This summer, resist the cruelty of the weather and its unappealing side effects by relying on waterproof makeup.
FACE: A natural, fresh-faced look is most desirable in the summer to avoid appearing overly dolled-up. No one strives to be seen stepping out of the water with foundation streaking down their face. Lancôme’s Effacernes is a waterproof undereye concealer that stays on all day, evens skintones, and covers uninvited dark circles. (Sephora, $28)
EYES: Stila's Smudge Stick eyeliners are both waterproof and smudge proof to help you endure a long day in the heat. While waterproof eyeliners commonly tug at the eyelids, Stila’s seven shades glide on easily to deliver intense color with staying power (Sephora, $20). Consider pairing lined eyes with Yves Saint Laurent's Singular Nuit Blanche waterproof mascara. The unique wand allows for volume, definition, and length that prevails in water and heat (macys.com, $36).
REMOVER: At the end of the day, washing away the makeup that resists it all can be a grueling task. Benefit’s Remove It is a lightweight, oil-free solution for cleansing your face of the makeup that accentuates your natural allure all day (Sephora, $20).
