Waterproof Your Makeup

How is it that beach-loving celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz always look picture perfect as they climb out of the pool or walk out of the ocean? Aside from having amazing bodies, many of them are probably wearing waterproof makeup. If you enjoy water sports (or tearjerker movies) and want to look your best without worrying about makeup dribbling down your face, try switching to waterproof products. Here are some of my faves this summer:
Sephora's Flashy Liner Waterproof is a soft and creamy eyeliner that glides on smoothly and then stays put. It's got a bit of sparkle to reflect light, but don't worry — it's not too glittery for daytime. I like Flashy Black and Flashy Green ($8 at sephora.com).
L'Oréal's Voluminous Waterproof Mascara (about $7 at drugstores) has been my go-to summer mascara because it builds volume that holds up under water, in extreme humidity, and through a sweaty workout. This year I'm also loving Giorgio Armani Beauty's Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara, which is lightweight and leaves my lashes feeling soft ($30 at barneys.com).
Make Up For Ever's Aqua Lip waterproof Lip liner pencil ($17 at sephora.com) stays put all day and comes in 18 shades (I like Nude Beige). I also like Prestige's Waterproof Lipliner (about $5 at drugstores and ulta.com), which comes in 10 colors. To avoid looking too made up, choose a shade close to your lip color and use short, feathery strokes to apply it along your natural lip line. These liners can be drying, so apply lip balm or gloss on top when you get out of the water.
