Now that the days’ temperatures are reaching an all-time high, within seconds of leaving your house you may find yourself wondering why you bothered to apply any makeup at all. If even a drop of sweat falls from your brow, your liner is bound to run and that waterproof mascara you applied before taking a dip in the pool isn’t quite living up to its no-budge claims. Here, a roundup of the best waterproof mascaras and liners in the game to help keep you looking cool even when the heat is unbearable.
1. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner In Trooper
The tatted queen, Kat Von D, has created a waterproof liner that has a staying power about as budge-proof as a temporary tattoo. Once dry, the liner will not crinkle or crack however, unlike traditional temporary tats.
Kat Von D | $19
2. Maybelline Full 'N' Soft Waterproof Mascara In Very Black
Infused with vitamin E, this formula plumps lashes without the drying and flaking effects that often come with thickening mascaras. It also features a built-in Quick Dissolve System, which allows you to easily remove the formula—not your lashes altogether.
Maybelline | $7
3. Clinique High-Impact Waterproof Mascara In Black
True to the cult-favorite brand amongst those with sensitive skin types, Clinique’s waterproof mascara is an ophthalmologist-tested, non-irritating formula. It glides onto your lashes without a single trace of flaking or clumping and lasts for up to 16 hours!
Clinique | $17
4. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Best part about this waterproof liner is that it’s incredibly creamy and won’t tug at your skin as you glide it across your lids. Try it in one of over 40 stunning shades ranging from neutral blacks and browns to metallic silvers and golds to vibrant pinks and greens.
Urban Decay | $20 each
5. Lancôme Définicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara in Black
Everything we love about the Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara—it’s got super lengthening powers if you’re looking for long, dark lashes—is sealed with a waterproof finish, allowing the mascara to last from AM to PM.
Lancome | $28
6. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eyeliner In Black Ink
If you’re comfortable using a brush, then this gel liner is a must for graphic cat eyes and precise lines. Just be sure to create your masterpiece quickly—once the gel dries, the formula won’t budge!
