Melt-free makeup that stands the test of time
It’s hard to keep your makeup in place perfectly from morning to night without nary a smudge, budge, or smear. And when you factor in the weather—be it rain, wind, or a nasty snowstorm—the last thing you want is makeup that doesn’t stay precisely where you put it. That’s where waterproof and long-wear makeup comes in—they’re not just for hot summer days and balmy nights spent dining outdoors at Tutto Il Giorno. They’re truly a year-round staple.
Today’s waterproof makeup options aren’t like the products of yesteryear. In the past, they were limited to clumpy mascaras and unflattering lipsticks. But, today’s formulations, which extend beyond eye and lip products to include every color cosmetic imaginable, have long-lasting, transfer-resistant staying power. The best waterproof makeup incorporates adhesive ingredients that allow the pigment to stay perfectly in place through a grueling spin class or while waiting for your Uber in the rain during cold and allergy season.
