Mess-Free Makeup: Five Waterproof Cosmetic Essentials We Slick On for Summertime
Posted Monday June 4, 2012 8:36 AM GMT
Throughout the summer, we turn to waterproof makeup for all our beauty needs, as their formulas fare AND feel better on the days where the heat just won’t give.
Not to mention the staying power these products lend during an afternoon of swimming. After all, we want to get out of the pool looking like Bo Derek, don’t you?
While the chemical make-up of waterproof options may be packed with more long-lasting ingredients than regular cosmetics, there are plenty that are just as lightweight and barely there as they come.
Now, we have a slew of water-resistant cosmetic favs, but there are five particular items we have in our purses and beach bags at all times. These babies are the cream of the crop, the cat’s meow, the ying to our waterproof-beauty wang – you get the point.
