Surf the Waves of Summer Fun with Perfect Waterproof Makeup

Summer is all about the outdoors, swimming pools, the beach and warmth. Warmth that can create a little sweat (oh, I know, you don’t sweat, you merely glow!). So, you need to keep your face of perfection while swimming, playing sport or just smiling happily on the beach. Get ready for the deep end because waterproof makeup does not have to be heavy and cakey on your face. I have picked out some of the best waterproof makeup products that last through all the activity, but are still breathable, with light textures and often a handy SPF factor to boot!

Eyes defined

So, let’s start with the obvious one, a waterproof mascara. There are plenty of these around so you will be spoilt for choice. I love LANCÔME Hypnose Star Waterproof Show-Stopping Eyes Ultra-Glam Volume Mascara. Yes, with a name like that I’ve got to love it!  It has a dual-sided brush that leaves lashes looking volumised and curled, and the “Black Diamond” shade has a glamorous intensity. 

Then – keep your gaze defined as you do glamour in the water. A waterproof eye pencil is perfect for this, and adds focus and intensity to your eyes. Try Christian Dior Long-Wear Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil. It is a long-wearing, smudge-free eyeliner that's not afraid of water! And it comes with a handy blending brush-tip and sharpener attached, in blue, brown and black. 

Flawless visage

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am a fan of the flawless skin look, ALL the time. So, when I am swimming around, I still don’t want any blemishes of dark patches showing, so the perfect product for me in summer is Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer SPF 10. It is a lightweight crème formula which creates the perfected look of flawless skin all day. It lasts 15-hours, feels comfortable and has a luminous finish. You just use the wand applicator to get it where it needs to be, then don’t worry again! 

Flushed mermaid

There is nothing like gently flushed cheeks to keep you looking pretty outdoors! Which is why I carry BECCA Beach Tint around in summer. It is a water-resistant crème stain for cheeks and also for lips with a natural wash of colour. Enriched with skin-soothing vitamin E, it stays put with a subtle, fruity scent, making sure you look lovely even in the unforgiving glare of direct sunlight! 

Keep the colour on!

And last but not least, let’s not forget to waterproof our pouts! Use M.A.C Lustre Lipstick in one of its many shades, I love a gentle pink for outdoors. The texture repels water so it stays on while you drink cocktails and dash off for a dip! 

So, there you have it my summer beauties! No need to go bare faced into the water! Happy swimming!
