When To Use Waterproof Mascara This Summer

With summer just around the corner, many of us are stocking up on waterproof makeup. Something that’s often overlooked is waterproof mascara but you don’t wanna make that mistake, trust me. There are many instances in which you’ll be thankful you opted for waterproof mascara instead of regular mascara and after reading this, you’ll be putting in an order on Sephora for some Better Than Sex Waterproof mascara.

Can You Stand The Heat?

If you’re gonna outside in the heat all day you’re gonna want to make sure you have some waterproof mascara on. Mascara tends to fade throughout the day but when you factor in heat? It’s likely to fade in the matter of a few hours. That’s why waterproof mascara is a must. With its longevity, you’ll be fighting to get the waterproof mascara off by the end of the night.

Tip: Because it’s formulated to last for a long period of time, waterproof mascara tends to be harder to remove. Try soaking a cotton pad with some eye makeup remover and press it gently on your eyes for a few seconds and then wipe it off. Remember to be as gentle as you can!

Beach Please

If you find yourself planning a beach day and you don’t have any waterproof mascara on hand, then I wish you luck. But not really because… what are you thinking?! Go out and get yourself some waterproof mascara, especially if you intend to be wearing makeup at the beach. What if you decide to go for an impromptu swim? Do you really wanna be the person who has mascara streaks on their face? The only time that ever worked for anyone was when it was LC on The Hills and that’s only ’cause it came with a side of juicy drama. You’ll probably look like a mess and not the hot kind. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Concerts And Waterproof Mascara = A Match Made In Heaven

Did you buy your tickets for Osheaga? Or do you plan on going to the biggest music festival that’s happening this month aka Coachella? These festivals take place outdoors and you’re gonna be in the sun and heat for hours upon hours. Add that to the inevitable dancing – I don’t know about you but I’ll be matching Normani’s flawless choreo at Osheaga step for step (or at least that’s what I think I’ll be doing, thank you alcohol) – and your face makeup is gonna be kind of a mess. But hey, one thing that won’t be a mess? Your mascara. Waterproof mascara is formulated to withstand exactly this. No, I don’t mean dancing your ass off in the heat at a festival. I mean the sweat or grease or whatever you wanna call it. All I know is, you’re going to want to make sure you have a tube or two of your favourite waterproof mascara on deck.

Working Out(side)

I don’t even know why you would want to, but if you plan on going for a jog in the outdoors or performing any other sort of workout outside, and you like to wear makeup when doing so, you’ll probably want waterproof mascara.

Got a yoga class to attend at 10:00 and a brunch with friends at 11:00? Two words: waterproof mascara. If your other makeup sweats off during your workout, it’ll be easy to reapply. Reapplying on top of mascara smudges and streaks? Not so easy. But if you’re anything like me and choose to stay in shavasana the entire yoga class, you’re probably okay to skip out on the waterproof mascara.
