We are right in the midst of summer which means heavy heat, sweat, humidity, and beach or pool time. Wearing makeup in the summer could be an issue if we didn’t have waterproof makeup, and no one wants to be sweating their face off, so I have put together a list of the 15 best waterproof makeup products for 2018!
These are all top rated products that are sure not to budge and I can personally recommend them.
I have made sure to choose a product for your every need so if you are going for a full face then I have suggested a product for you.
Cargo has a few great products from their Swimmables line that are great for the summer. The water-resistant blush is a powder formula that adheres to the skin for a nice wash of colour and is also buildable.
Each pigment is coated with silicone to help it adhere to the skin easily while also making it water resistant. L-Lysine which is naturally found in the skin is added to help with the long-wearing of this blush.
There are 3 colours to choose from – soft tangerine, hot pink and rose pink.
The Aqua Rouge Liquid Lipsticks are one of my favourite lip products. They are a dual end liquid lipstick/gloss and are not going anywhere once dry. What I especially love about this lip product is that you can choose to wear it matte by just applying the colour or you can get a high shine effect with the gloss.
They also sit quite lightly on the lips feeling and acting much more like a bold lip stain versus a liquid lipstick. The gloss is also super silky and not at all sticky.
These 10 colours are amazing for the summer because beautiful and they won’t fade. Basically, you need makeup remover to take them off, but it makes wearing a beautiful bold lip around the pool totally practical.
A friend recommended this foundation to me so I ran to the store right away to try it out and fell in love!
The Lasting Finish foundation provides a medium to full coverage that will last all day.
Although not a huge range of colours, if you can find yours out of the 7 available then I highly recommend you giving this a shot.
I am such a NYX fan and they impressed me once again with their beautiful Full Throttle Lipsticks.
These are bold and richly pigmented matte lipsticks that are also waterproof. They completely coat the lips with a nice opaque finish.
There are 12 colours to choose from and the shape of the lipstick allows for a perfect lining of the lips.
The All Nighter setting spray has been my go-to setting spray for finishing my makeup for years now ever since I saw Jaclyn Hill first recommend it.
I keep trying other setting sprays but find I always go back to this one because it holds my makeup better than anything else.
This weightless waterproof spray helps makeup last for up to 16 hours without melting or fading.
Do you ever have a problem with your eyeshadow creasing? If so then the NYX Proof It just might be your solution.
This eyeshadow primer will ensure no creasing, longlasting eyeshadow and will also intensify the colours. You simply smooth it on the lid before applying your eyeshadows and you are good to go!
While on my regular days I use concealer as my eyeshadow base, if I know that I am going to be out in the heat during the summer, this is my go-to eyeshadow primer.
The Superstay 24hr powder does just what it says it does. It is a compact powder used to set the face and is formulated to be long lasting while water-repellent and keeps oil and sweat away.
It provides a matte finish and sits beautifully over your foundation for a flawless finish.
I am quite a fan of using eyeliner pens for my eyeliner as they are easier to use than a brush but provide a bold liner look and nice sharp lines.
Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is one of my favourites to use and it is super waterproof.
You can do a nice winged liner without the worry of it smudging or fading away and there are 10 colours to choose from and play with.
If you are looking for high pigment shadows that are not going to crease or face then I recommend the Infallible single shadows by Loreal.
These are a powder/cream texture and are beautiful to apply with your fingertips for a bold look. There are 13 colours to choose from and they provide a long-lasting waterproof hold.
Hourglass beige has been my go-to eye highlighter for years as it is a beautiful vanilla colour with super shine.
In my opinion, Urban Decay is one of the main go-to brands for anything waterproof. They know how to make a product last, which is great because you know the product is going a long way.
There is no difference here with the 24/7 glide on lip pencils. When it comes to lining your lips, you want something that’s going to hold through drinking, eating, maybe even kissing, and these lip pencils will do just the trick.
They have a whopping 50 shades to choose from so you can always find your colour, they are ultra creamy which makes them easy to apply and they are beautifully opaque with no risk of bleeding lines.
They have a built-in primer and don’t leave the lips feeling dry or cakey.
I am a big fan of cream shadow sticks for the summer. They are super wearable, quick and easy to apply, and with just one neutral colour all over the lid, you can give the eye some definition naturally beautiful way. “Just swipe and go.”
The Bobbi Brown Cream shadow sticks are gorgeous for that touch of colour that is also going to last without any creasing, flaking or fading.
There are 13 great shades to choose from and is a must in your summer makeup bag.
If you read this post on my favourite drugstore mascaras, then you will know how much of a fan I am of the Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara. You can get a nice bold voluminous lash without any clumps and for the summertime get it in waterproof for lashes that won’t transfer.
If there is one go-to product to have in your summer makeup bag, this should be it!
The Rimmel Waterproof Bronzer has been a best seller for years because of its beautiful application and for being so long wearing.
With added SPF 15, you will be good to go looking bronzed and beach-ready without any worry of your golden skin fading.
This bronzer is great for contouring or giving all your skin a nice healthy looking glow.
I tried this concealer about a month ago and was totally shocked by how nice it is. Especially for someone with a dry complexion like me, this concealer didn’t settle into any fine lines, it didn’t look cakey, it didn’t look drying at all but beautifully covered my under eye circles. The bonus is that it is also waterproof.
I love how brightening it is and being waterproof, I can rely on it to last all day without the need for touch-ups.
I don’t typically go to Lancome for my concealers, but this one has made its way into my makeup bag for good.
To have eyebrows that last, Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade is your way to go. Especially if you are a girl that needs her brows no matter what, you can rely on this pomade to keep your bold brows lasting all day, even if you end up in the pool.
There are 11 natural shades to choose from and it’s as easy as taking the gel-like formula onto an angled brush and creating hair-like strokes throughout your brows.
It is a creamy and easy to work with formula that is smudge proof and waterproof.
