Makeup Wars: My Favorite Waterproof Makeup.

When it comes to summer makeup, I have three waterproof products that are a must for me: waterproof mascara, waterproof eye liner and waterproof bronzer. I think it is pretty obvious when it comes to waterproof mascara and liner; eye makeup that is sweating or smearing off is just not pretty. But I also HATE it when I have bronzer running down my cheeks, so a waterproof bronzer is also essential.

Here it is, my favorite waterproof makeup.

Waterproof Makeup

Waterproof Mascara

I am so picky about mascara that picking a waterproof version has seriously proved difficult for me. I either love them or hate them and just don't have the lashes to waste because so many of the waterproof version are very rough on eyelashes. When I discovered Anastasia Lash Genius, I swear my life was changed. Lash Genius instantly waterproofs, refreshes and protects any mascara, without the typical drying or clumping. It is colorless, silky and lightweight. All it does is simple; it waterproofs my current favorite mascara.

Waterproof Eye Liner

I have a stash of waterproof and long wearing eye liners that I put into heavy rotation in the summer, but none has sparked my fancy as much as this new beautiful tarte cosmetics Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Splash. This sparkling turquoise liner makes a summer eye unexpectedly gorgeous and I wore it during all of my recent beach vacation.  The enclosed brush (in the prettiest teal green color) makes application easy and perfect every time. The best part? It doesn't budge from where I apply it.

Waterproof Bronzer

Like I said, there is nothing worse than streaky bronzer running down my face as I, ugh, sweat. This CARGO Water Resistant Bronzer is formulated with long-wear and water-resistant ingredients, that are pretty much waterproof on me. Since wearing this medium shade of bronzer, that leaves just a touch of glow and beautiful bronze to my skin, I have not had to worry about bronze streaks anymore.

The rest of the Makeup Wars girls are talking about their favorite waterproof makeup too. Be sure to check them out. I can't wait to see what their favorite waterproof makeup is myself; I can always use more great ideas and great makeup.

I could use a water resistant bronzer. I never know there would be such a thing honestly. I also sweat a bit in the summer and my foundation is good, but blush and bronzer look atrocious. I'll be looking for this one Teri. Nice ideas!
I was trying to think of a waterproof bronzer and forgot about CARGO, which is such a great line. Thanks for reminding me!
Lash Genius really is amazing and that Tarte liner has been on my lemmings list forever! I need to grab it for sure!
I included Cargo's bronzer in mine too. I've been using it forever, and it never lets me down.
That cream liner is gorgeous! I'd wear it all the time, too!
Another vote for Lash Genius! I need to pick that up!
Lash Genius is killing it! LOL
I agree, I don't like waterproof mascara but I love lash genius. Splash has quickly become a summer staple for me!
Yay I love the Lash Genius and tarte love! Great brands :)
Nice suggestions from all the blogs today. I find the Makeup Forever products too long lasting for the casual user like me, so these sound like a very nice alternative. The color of that eyeliner is surely very beautiful and I think would be a nice contrast to my light brown eyes.
Lash Genius is new to me and now I wonder why I waited so long. It is amazing and makes hot days less stressful. It's just a great product.
I haven't tried the new Tarte collection but after this series of Wars I think I will be shopping soon.
Love Tarte! Love the look of that bronzer too!
Another vote for Lash Genius!!! That stuff is amazing! That tarte liner looks so pretty! I didn't even know the Cargo bronzers were waterproof! Great choices
That bronzer really is amazing, I just wish there were more colors. It's definitely too dark for me!
I want to try that mascara!! Also Splash is soo pretty!
I have gone through the Blog. This is a nice Blog. The blog inform us about the gorgeous waterproof makeup. As being estheticians by profession I recommend the above products. I also suggest you to use Obagi products like Obagi nu derm set or obagi nu-derm clear with a discount upto 30%.
I learn so much here. Thanks!
a waterproof bronzer.. where have I been living? Obviously under a rock!
