Long Lasting Waterproof Makeup Products:
Tips on Smudge & Sweat Proof Cosmetics for Lips, Eyes & Face
Waterproof makeup products are the best way to wear mascara, eyeliner and
foundation because they stay put until you're ready to remove them. After all,
nobody wears makeup only to have to reapply it! But sometimes we forget that
water proof cosmetics are such a great option. Swimmers, models, runners and
travelers know that sweatproof, smudge proof and water proof makeup products
make a lot of sense, but the rest of us need to be reminded to use them. The
question isn't so much, 'Why do some people wear waterproof makeup?" It's "Why
don't we all?"
Waterproof Makeup Can Last Long Without Causing Breakouts
Some people worry that waterproof makeup products will stress the skin or clog
the pores, but modern make up technology has created lines of liquid eyeliner,
nontoxic cosmetic foundations and even stage makeup designed to go on smoothly,
stay on endlessly and disappear without a trace when you take them off. You can
find waterproof makeup with sunscreen, and these days, SPF is a non-negotiable,
either in your makeup or under it. Scar makeup is a prime example of excellent
modern day waterproof makeup: if you really want to conceal, you want it to
last, and new scar concealing body makeups do the job.

Do you have the right makeup remover to remove
your waterproof make-up at then end of the day?
Wearing water proof, smudge proof or sweat proof cosmetics means that you'll
look great all day or all night. But you still
have to remove your makeup to let your skin
breathe! Before you go to bed, take the time you
need to carefully remove every bit of makeup from
your face—foundation, concealer, blush, eyeliner
and shadow, lip color. Take it all off with your
favorite waterproof makeup remover and follow it
up with toner or moisturizer, depending on your
skin type. Leaving makeup on overnight can cause
clogged pores, breakouts and grubby pillow cases,
so stay up three minutes longer and get your face
clean before going to bed.

Smudge-Proof Lipsticks and Lip Liners Have All Day Wear
Water proof makeup products for lips include tubes of lipstick, boxes of lip
color and even lip paints. If you first cover the lips with foundation, you can
get a smooth primer coat for lining the lips and then filling them in with
color. If you use waterproof foundation as well as lip color, you have an even
better chance of keeping your lip color on all day without needing to refresh
it. Color, blend, blot and reapply for a perfect mouth. Using waterproof, smudge
proof lip color means you won't have to worry about losing your lipstick over an
important lunch meeting.
Waterproof Mascara that Doesn't Run on a Hot Day or From a Good Cry
Water proof eye products are especially terrific because our eyes tend to water,
to get rubbed and to be generally irritated more than the rest of our faces.
People who wear contact lenses have a difficult time not touching their eyes:
they need eye makeup that can stand up to a little rub now and then. Ordinary
eye cosmetics can cause problems for lens wearers because non water proof
products tend to flake, smear or run, getting into sensitive eyes and ruining
delicate lenses. Because lens wearers are more susceptible to eye infections,
scratches and sensitivities, they should only wear eye makeup designated for
them. There are companies that specialize in eye makeup and eye makeup remover
for contact lens wearers.
Some makeup can work on more than one area: women have even been known to use a
smudged lip liner for a soft pink eye shadow. Eyeliner pencil in a waterproof
formula can be made to do double duty as eye shadow in a pinch, but if you buy a
bag for your waterproof makeup products, you can carry more with you than a
pencil or two to make the change from everyday makeup to something more
glamorous for nighttime.
Waterproof Eye Shadows Can Stand a Humid Day without Rubbing Off
Waterproof eye shadow means not having to reapply partway through an evening at
a hot, crowded club, and since those places never have decent mirrors, you'd
better plan to go home with the same makeup you wore in. Many women prefer cream
eyeliner and shadow because it goes on more smoothly, but you can also set it
more securely with powder. Waterproof cream to powder eyeliner is a powerful
makeup combination: getting your eye makeup in waterproof forms is a great way
to beat summer heat, winter rains and raccoon eyes at the end of a long day.
Removing Waterproof Cosmetics Takes More Than Soap and Water
When it comes to removing waterproof makeup, you have a number of choices. If
you're the old fashioned type, you can start with baby oil, but it doesn't have
the wonderful cosmeceutical properties of more modern approaches. You can find
makeup remover with green tea extract, Vitamin E, and moisturizers of all sorts.
There are very mild eye makeup removers made with coconut oil and stronger all
over makeup removers for stage makeup.
