Can your makeup beat the heat? Summer-ize your makeup bag with these waterproof, smudge-proof makeup picks for summer.
No shimmer here – this ultra matte bronzer gives you the glow you’re looking for without the excess shine.
The eyeliner I can’t live without – Bobbi’s gel eyeliners last all day and night. It has the staying power of a waterproof mascara, so it’s definitely a must-have for summer. I recommend a lighter shade for summer, try it in espresso ink.
The affordable lip stain that stays put on your pout throughout the day. Try it in smooch proof – a gorgeous berry pink, that will leave your lips looking ripe for summer.
Nothing beats a good waterproof mascara. It’s a season chock full of celebrations – like weddings and graduations. Your eyes are bound to well up during these events; and if your mascara isn’t waterproof, you’ll end up with black tears in no time! This mascara from Clinique makes your lashes look longer and will keep you smudge free for up to 24 hours.
Bright, bold, beautiful colors for the summer, this shadow palette looks like a powder, but feels like a cream. It has a unique formula that’s waterproof with a silky finish.
So if all these products are waterproof – how do you take it off!?! Well, I recommend Makeup For Ever’s Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser. It’s a refreshing lightweight makeup remover that helps you remove your makeup effortlessly, minimizing your need to tug and pull at your eye area.

This color is so pretty, it’s one of my favorites. Bobbi Brown Blush in Peony is a beautiful shade of bright pink that gives your cheeks a pop of color. At first glance, you might think that this shade is too pink and that it might leave you with fake looking doll cheeks, but guess again! With its buildable formula and matte finish, you control how much or how little color you want.
I like to apply this blush to the apple of my cheeks and I blend it in with my bronzer. For a more subtle and natural look, I like to use a warmer blush shade like Desert Rose as a base and then apply Peony on top for an extra splash of color. The combo really makes my cheeks pop!
This has been my go-to liquid eyeliner since my early teen years. Prior to using this eyeliner I remember always struggling with stiff marker like eyeliners or flimsy brush eyeliners that would spread my line to wide or make an uneven line, because the brush was having a bad hair day!
L’Oreal Felt Tip Eyeliner has super flexible tip applicator that makes putting on your eyeliner quick and easy, two swipes and you’re ready to go. It has a shiny finish, so if you are looking to create a bold matte line, this liner is not for you. I sometimes like to start with this eyeliner and then I apply a matte gel liner over it, I like using Bobbie Brown’s Gel Eyeliner. I can get the liquid liner closer to my lashes and by using both I can achieve a polished finish.
So I just can’t express how much I love the felt tip applicator, I would be disappointed if it ever got discontinued. L’Oreal please never stop making this! This is a classic!
