Memorial Day is right around the corner and the annual holiday marks the official start of summer. Think BBQs in the park, beautiful beach days, and poolside parties that never end.
While you may love the spike in the temperature, your makeup may disagree and will drip off at the first sight of humidity. Hey, no one loves the stickiness of summer, but it’s about compromise right?
So the question is:
Can you have some fun in the sun without sacrificing your sweet summer face?
The answer is yes! All it takes is the right makeup products that aren’t afraid of a little heat or splashing around in the pool. Your summer makeup products should be long-wearing, waterproof, and shouldn’t budge when you want to frolic in the sunshine. Even better? These products will protect your skin, and allow you to serve an amazing face!
We’ve put some of the best water resistant makeup products to the test and have picked out our favorite ones to share with you today. Are you ready to revamp your summer makeup routine? Let’s do this!
6 Waterproof Makeup Must Haves to Dive Into!
The Waterproof Eyeshadow
Take a dip in the pool without fearing that your shadow will wash away. This waterproof eyeshadow has a velvety formula that is designed to stay on all day long. Asides from its longevity, the really cool thing is the powder creme hybrid formula that allows it to flawlessly glide onto your lids.

The Waterproof Eyeliner
Summer is a great time to experiment with a colored liner. Put down your classic black liner and opt for something that will brighten up your pretty peepers. Think purple, teal and blue! Most importantly, think WATERPROOF, so it doesn’t melt off. This liner is a little pricey, but totally budge proof making it worth every single penny.

Can’t go no where without mascara? We don’t blame you! Mascara is an easy way to define your eyes, but you don’t want a stream of black water dripping down your face if you go for a swim. This waterproof mascara locks in place, while also giving you plush long lashes.

The Waterproof Concealer
When it comes to summer makeup, less is definitely more. Who wants to have a face caked with makeup when it s 90 degrees outside? Rather than wearing a full face of foundation, opt for a concealing troubled spots instead. This product isn’t waterproof, but it’s one tough cookie and can easily stay in place on a hot summer day.

[tps_footer]Have you amped up your makeup bag for summer?
But wait! I had to share with you a few summer beauty tips from MUA Faye Smith’s blog!
Less is more – if you’re hitting the beach with your friends, there’s really no need to cake on a ton of foundation, powder, concealer, bronzer etc… stick to the basics and you will thank us later. Pop on your favorite concealer over those trouble spots, lightly dust a setting powder on top, and boom – good to go.
SUNSCREEN! This isn’t really a makeup problem – but ladies, you should ALWAYS have sunscreen on your pretty faces! Last thing anybody wants is skin cancer.
Highlight Carefully. Careful where you apply your highlight. Remember – it’s hot and sunny and you don’t want to be walking around with so much shimmer and highlight that people think you are constantly sweating, the tops of the cheekbones, are the really only place you need to be placing that product.
