The Waterproof Makeup You NEED This Summer
Posted by Rachael Wheeler in
For the next few sentences I’m going to be incredibly British and talk about the weather. For those London based, hasn’t it been lovely the last few days? The sun’s been out (much SPF has been applied to my hidden-away-all-winter skin) and everyone's been frequenting the parks and outdoor spaces on offer. However do you ever get to the point where in your head you imagine that the image you are projecting is somewhere in the region of a supermodel at Coachella. All tawny limbs, tousled hair and skin glowing with health and radiantly tanned. Only to look in the mirror after a day in the dun to find that your mascara has melted down your face and foundation has sweated off in a weird blotchy pattern. Rending your face similar to a Frisian cow. Nothing ruins a summer day faster than realising that the makeup you've put some serious time and effort into, (to look like you weren't wearing any) is now halfway down your face. Don’t even get me started on melted eyebrows!!
To save you from this summer stress we’ve sought out best and handiest of waterproof beauty online for you to stock up on. So recline on that lounger in style as these beauty babies aren't going anywhere until you want them too.

These cult products are hard to get hold of and one of the best beauty onine finds this season.
Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Black £22.00. Remember the Marc Jacobs Stam bag? One of the first “IT Bags” to make some serious waves. Toted on almost every arm in Hollywood (and beyond). Well Marc has done it again, this is the Stam bag version of an eyeliner, one to be worn with EVERYTHING. This eyeliner, is glossy, black and the calligraphy style nib makes a cat eye flick a dream, even for an eyeliner novice.
This article wouldn't be complete without a waterproof mascara. The must have makeup product if you upgrade just one thing this summer. Some waterproof mascaras are claggy, drying and flake off at your touch but need paint stripper to properly remove them. Lancome however, have nailed this formula (and as an avid swimmer, I’ve tried a fair few). Just because you are going swimming doesn't mean you have to hide behind those goggles. Lancome Hypnose Doll Mascara Waterproof 01 Black £19.95 will lift, volumise and have your lashes creating their own waves.

This seasons cat eye sunglasses and ski hi temperatures can play havoc with a perfectly groomed brow. Keep yours in check with NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel £7.99 its waterproof, lightweight and will instantly make brows look thicker and fuller without any harsh lines.
