Even though winter is here, your makeup should be wrapped tight just like a present. Don’t let the curse of mother nature dim your star or allow your makeup to run. Here are some products that can weather proof your look. Weather its raining, sleeting, snowing, or just extremely hot, these products have the potential to keep everything in check. Keep the upper hand on weather with products that keep the makeup you look in perfect harmony.
Anatasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat: A good friend of mine swiped it over her regular mascara—an almost aggressively un-waterproof formula that I love despite its tendency to smudge easily. We went to the movies one time and the movie had the tendency to jerk some tears. She came out of the theater expecting to have major raccoon eyes, but shockingly, her mascara was completely intact. For real. Even better, when it came time to remove it, she didn’t have to rub her eyes raw and pull out lashes, as she ended up doing with many waterproof mascaras in the past. I also found this one less irritating to sensitive eyes. It’s a winner.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Seal: Make Up For Ever has a ton of waterproof options, including shadows, lipsticks, and liners, and most of them are really good. So I had high hopes for this product. You mix a few drops of the clear liquid into powders or pencils to get the waterproofing effect. I tested it with a powder shadow that’s usually pretty crease-prone and definitely not waterproof, and though it felt slightly sticky at first, the tackiness disappeared after a few seconds. This product really works. Impressive coverage in a flash!
Trish McEvoy Finish Line: This product is similar to the Make Up For Ever formula—you mix a few drops of it with liner or shadow to make them waterproof. This is not a good product if the humidity is at its zenith. It will make your skin extremely oily!
lamasqua Sealing Gel: Though this product has a gel-like consistency, it’s another one you can purposely mix into any everyday formula to waterproof it. You literally put one drip to any powder and it turns it into a paste. You have to work fast because it dries really quickly once you apply it.
