Waterproof Makeup Essentials

Its pool party time!

So then its time for waterproof makeup to keep you looking fabulous at the pool, beach, or just when heat strikes and makeup will smudge.

Most important in the waterproof (or resistant) cosmetics line up is MASCARA!

I like Urban Decay's "Cannonball" Waterproof Mascara $20 at Ulta

If you are concerned about chemicals in the waterproof mascara (waterproof formulas ARE harsher on the eyelashes because of the bonding of the product) you can try Tarte's all natural "Lights, Camera, Splashes!" Mascara
Lights, Camera, Splashes! Waterproof Mascara
It comes it a ridiculously adorable container with a nautical vibe!
Find it at Sephora for $19

Something you might not have thought of is water resistant bronzer - to help you keep that [safe sun] tan on your face during a day at the beach!

Try Cargo's Water Resistant Bronzer, also at Ulta, and retails for $28

Its a nice natural looking bronze shade!

How about waterproof eye pencils?  Well, Sephora's own brand won't break the bank (at only $12 each!) and they come in great colors
Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof
These liners promise 12 hours of waterproof wear, now THATs a happy beach bunny!

How about covering a blemish or under eye circles?  You can even try a waterproof concealer.  One to try is Lancome's "Effacernes Waterproof" $29.50 at Macy's (comes in a wide variety of shades for a perfect match!)
EFFACERNES - Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer
Tip:  Ask for a sample of the concealer in one shade darker than your skin tone, so that as you get a bit of a tan you don't need to be a whole new concealer!
