Makeup Wars ~ My Favourite Waterproof Makeup

I love waterproof makeup. Not that I make a habit out of trying to concoct makeup looks that will withstand a day in the pool, but the use of a few waterproof items on a daily basis is the perfect way to ensure fade proof, long lasting looks. Something that is especially important as the hot, sweaty days of summer have already begun the appear. Mind you as I am typing this as it is snowing and blowing outside my window. Excuse me May? Sheesh!

Some of my all time favourite waterproof makeup products are:


Anastasia Lash Genius Clear Waterproof Top Coat – Turn any mascara into a waterproof mascara! It can be hard to find a waterproof mascara formula we love but thanks to Lash Genius an everyday favourite can be transformed into a waterproof version. It also works great to set brows or mix with a powdered shadow for a budgeproof liner. Check out my Lash Genius Review.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams – Create a budge proof look out of these cream shadows that come in gorgeous shades and offer wonderful blendability. Use everyday as a base under powder shadows to ensure your look won’t fade. I have reviewed several of the shades here and here. There are some incredible looking new shades out for summer that I can’t wait to get my hands on!

Actually all of the Make Up For Ever Aqua line is wonderful. The Aqua Rouge Liquid lipsticks, Aqua Lip lip liners, Aqua Liner liquid liners, and Aqua Eye eye pencils are products I turn to on a regular basis.

Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation – Beautiful, natural finish, light to medium coverage foundation that is waterproof. Perfect for hot summer days when you don’t want your foundation melting off your face!

    Lash Genius is new to me but my initial impression is “where was this before??”. My list is loaded with MUFE too, they are an amazing company for waterproof makeup.

    Is that foundation better than the HD one?! I was not a fan of that one but I would love to try this one!

      I like it better. It is less coverage than the HD though.
