10 Weather-Proof Beauty Products for Rainy Days
As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers, but we're a long way from the end of the rainy season. A sturdy umbrella paired with a chic raincoat can keep your wardrobe dry, so shouldn't your hair and makeup get some extra insurance as well?
We searched the market for the best waterproof and weather-resistant beauty products that stand up to the spring elements—from blowout-preserving hair cremes to smudge-proof lipsticks, and just about every category in between. Not only will your hair and makeup survive the storm, but you'll continue to look fabulous long after the clouds have disappeared. Click through our gallery to shop each of the products now!
Sisley Phyto Lip Twists
We're obsessed with the non-sticky formula of Sisley's crayon-shaped glosses ($50; sisley-paris.com), which won't stick to your layers when the wind picks up, and can be worn either as a subtle stain or a full-impact color.
Carol's Daughter Sacred Tiare Styling Cream
Give your blowout extra insurance against the elements by working a dollop of this coconut, moringa, and jojoba-infused cream ($12; target.com) into your strands prior to styling, and you'll be rocking a perfect style regardless of the forecast.
MAC Fix +
Not only does MAC's setting spray ($21; maccosmetics.com) keep your immaculate contouring skills intact, but the blend of green tea, cucumber, and chamomile also packs major benefits for your complexion.
Illamasqua Rain Drops Nail Polish
We admit, spring rain can actually be quite soothing, and dare we say, pretty-provided we're not caught in it sans umbrella. Illamasqua's rain drop lacquers ($17 each; sephora.com) recreate the mirror-like effect on your digits with tiny pearlized shimmer pigments.
Oribe Anti-Humidity Spray
Oribe's innovative hair spray ($39; oribe.com) is like a poncho for your blowout, and once the sun starts to emerge, the UV-blocking elements help to protect your highlights.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Seal
Now all of your products can be waterproof, thanks to Make Up For Ever's Aqua Seal ($21; sephora.com). Either mix a drop in with your liquid or powder products, or pat over the top of a certain area to give your look extra staying power.
Anastasia Brow Genius Kit
Most waterproof brow products tend to come on too strong, but Anastasia's Brow Genius ($24; anastasia.net) imparts a natural effect that won't quit. Simply mix the powder with the innovative Beauty Genius Waterproofing Gel to create a paste, then apply using short, quick strokes with the precise angled brush.
Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Radiance-Boosting Primer
Getting some sun in between April showers can be a challenge, but Napoleon Perdis' Primer ($55; napoleonperdis.com) is an easy way to fake a radiant glow, and also keeps your foundation from shifting.
Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner
Ever have your graphic cat-eye ever transform into a raccoon eye by mid-day? Toss your standard liner for Eyeko's Eye Do ($19; nordstrom.com), which creates a precise shape with its pointed felt tip, and as an added bonus, the waterproof formula is infused with a dose of castor oil to promote lash growth.
Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara
Just like the rest of Bobbi Brown's products, the No Smudge Mascara ($25; bobbibrowncosmetics.com) really lives up to its name. One sweep is all you need for a boost in definition, and the inky black formula won't flake, feather, or form dark circles along your lower lash line.
