Summer’s inclement weather can have you dreading ever leaving the house. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice your beauty routine to spend time outdoors this summer. We’ve rounded up eight waterproof makeup products that promise not to smudge, smear, transfer or budge, allowing you the freedom to feel confident whether you are attending a spinning class or simply spending the day relaxing at the beach.

1. Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara is a wonder of the beauty world as it ensures your lashes stay put throughout any weather condition, sweat session or a good cry. One great option is COVERGIRL’s LashBlast Waterproof Mascara which gives you 10x more volume due to its volume-boosting formula while being completely water, smudge and smear proof.

2. Eyebrow Tattoo Gel

Maybelline’s Tattoostudio Waterproof Eyebrow Gel is not only an excellent product to wear to the beach, but is an all around great product to use on a daily basis as well. This waterproof and smudge-proof eyebrow gel prevents any transfer, so your brows won’t budge – even if you take a dip.

3. Waterproof Liquid Converter

Aqua Seal by Make Up For Ever instantly converts your makeup products into waterproof formulas. Specifically, your powder formulas and pencils will be smudge-proof and long-lasting and its lightweight, liquid texture will intensify pigments and shimmers for a dramatic result.

4. All Day Liquid Lipstick

Don’t let the matte liquid lipstick formula scare you – Stila’s All Day Liquid Lipstick is a highly-pigmented, weightless lipstick enriched with Vitamin E and avocado oil for a creamy feel that softens the lips so they look and feel comfortable.

5. Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Yet another waterproof win by Stila, their #1 selling waterproof liquid liner is no joke when it comes to performance. This waterproof liquid liner glides on easily, but it won’t smudge or run throughout the day. The pen has a fine, marker-like tip that is easy to use and goes on smoothly, allowing you to create either a thin or thick line depending on your preference.

6. Waterproof Concealer

Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination by It Cosmetics is a full coverage, anti-aging concealer that brightens the eyes, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is waterproof. This multitasking concealer works to visually camouflage facial imperfections with no creases or cracks. Use as a spot treatment or as an all over foundation that will give you the intense coverage with a luminous, lasting finish.

7. Waterproof Bronzer

Cargo Swimmables Bronzer is a sweat-proof, weatherproof bronzer that is made to give a summer glow that stays put rain or shine. The bronzer is formulated with a silicone-coated powder that provides better adhesion to the skin and withstands water and moisture so you can avoid having to bother with re-application.

8. Longwear Foundation

The MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation won’t budge for an unheard of 24 hours. With an oil-free, watertight formula, this liquid foundation actually repels moisture from the surface of your face while blending seamlessly onto your skin. This is an awesome foundation for even the hottest of days, and it can double as a concealer as well.
