Waterproof Makeup Products for Summer

Make a splash this summer with these top rated waterproof makeup products.

Beach days are the best days, but they can get a little less fun when a dip in the ocean starts messing with your makeup. Regardless of what Instagram tells you, most people don’t go to the beach with a full face of makeup that still looks flawless after hours in the water and sun. Don’t get us wrong, you can still look super cute even after spending all day in the water, but you need the right waterproof makeup to keep your products in place for a wave of summer beauty.

Did you know that they make waterproof bronzer? Because they do. Brow gel, too. You can still keep your contour and beautiful brows in place at the pool, beach, or even in the midst of occasional summer rain (ugh.) Prepare to make a splash this summer with these incredible waterproof makeup products….

Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara by L’Oreal, $11

Lots of mascaras claim to be waterproof, but will actually only protect against the occasional teary eye… not saltwater or chlorine. But the Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara is your go-to for keeping lashes long and lush throughout the day, and between every summer swim. A bonus? Most waterproof mascaras, this one included, contain an ultra-waxy formula to help your lashes hold a better, longer curl - no matter how much time you spend by the pool.

Tarte is here to help you look beautiful and bronzed with waterproof makeup for work, school, the pool… anywhere. Our community gives this waterproof makeup top ratings for blendability and water resistance, with buildable color that lasts for hours while you have fun in the sun.

More like “Boy, Bye” to bad brows after applying this cult favorite from Glossier.

This waterproof makeup even contains Oleic Acid, Lecithin, and Atelocollagen to act as a conditioner for your brows… because summer heat is rough and they need haircare too.
