Top 5 Waterproof Beauty Products

Written By: Andrea Pena

After a long cold winter, it is finally summer in Minnesota! That means hot weather and lots of lake time, of course. You have your swimsuit and you have the SPF, but is your makeup ready?

Here are five amazing products that are sure to help keep your makeup looking flawless on land, in the water, and in the heat.  

For those who may need a little extra brow help, regardless of what you’re doing, the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade is a definite must have! This award-winning, waterproof, and buildable matte pomade helps build brows easily and locks them in! It has a creamy consistency, is pigmented, and dries fast to ensure that your brows stay all day regardless of the environment or temperature. It is available in 11 shades and best used with a small angled brush.


Who says you can’t have a cat-eye at the pool? With this Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper you totally can. This is a very pigmented liner with a thin brush tip applicator that helps the product glide across the lid effortlessly. It lasts a long time and once it’s on, it’s not going anywhere. This product is available in black and brown.


Probably one of the worst things that can happen when you’re getting out of the pool is having your mascara run down your face. Not a cute look but what’s the alternative? No lashes at all? The answer to your question is the Too Faced Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara. It’s the same formula as the original so your lashes will look longer, more voluminous and fanned out, but no runny mascara! It is a little harder to take off at the end of the night, however, but if you use a makeup remover with a little oil, the mascara will come right off!


Another hot weather must have is definitely a good liquid lipstick. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are my favorite! The formula is a matte but it dries on the lips and the pigmentation lasts all day. Through beer, hot dogs, and 90-degree weather your liquid lipstick will still be on and looking good. These also come in lots of fun colors!


Lastly, one of my most used products all year round, not just in the hot weathered months, is the Cargo Cosmetics Swimmable Water Resistant Blush.  Maybe a full face of makeup or foundation is a no-go for the really hot days or days where you’ll be spending a lot of time in the water, but if you still want to add just a little something to the face for some color and dimension, these blushes are perfect. They come in a variety of colors and add just the right amount of pigmentation seamlessly on your face.
