Here's Our Guide To The Best Waterproof Mascaras

Waterproof mascaras might not be recommended for every day use, but that doesn’t mean we don’t all need a tube (or five) on hand at all times. Check out our guide to waterproofing your lashes, plus seven of our favourite waterproof mascaras, to get you through all your sweaty summers, glamorous gym sessions, and repeated viewings of Titanic after a tough break-up.

Dermatologist Dr Dendy Engelman cautions that waterproof mascara has a drying effect on eyelashes. “The ingredients that are used to cause the formula to be waterproof can have the effect of drying out lashes, which can lead to them falling out,” Dr Engelman told Self.com. This doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing your beloved mascaras, but you should practise proper care when wearing waterproof makeup. Makeup.com’s Alanna Martine Kilkeary recommends a conditioning primer to prevent lash damage, while makeup artist Suzy Martin has a tip for regular mascara wearers: “as an alternative, apply one coat of water-resistant mascara to act as a buffer, and top it with a coat of waterproof mascara to help seal the deal.” Don’t forget to take great care when removing your makeup, by using an oil based cleanser or makeup remover to break down the mascara and avoid harsh rubbing. Keep these hacks in mind when trying out our favourite waterproof mascaras, for healthy lashes you can flutter all day long!
