Waterproof Your Look this Summer

Heading to the beach or somewhere warm this summer? The season is in full gear which only means one thing: water and heat can be our best friends as well as our worst enemies when it comes to makeup. The heat can melt off your makeup and the water can wash it away during a fun water balloon fight with your friends! What is the solution?

SOLUTION: Waterproof Your Look!

If you haven't already, check out this great video with helpful tips on how to do so this summer with YouTube beauty guru, Michelle Phan: 

But of course, there are many additional amazing products that you should consider when it comes to waterproofing your makeup! Take a look at our top recommendations in this category:

EYES: You want something that will hold your look throughout all your events without giving you the "panda eyes" look. When eye makeup smears, it does not only look unflattering but it could smear and get into your eyes. It is extremely important for makeup, particularly eye makeup to stay put when it comes to participating in rigorous or high activity. Check out some of our recommendations in this department:

1) HOLIKA HOLIKA Jewel-Light Eyeliner  a long lasting waterproof eyeliner that stays on your eyes without smudging through sweat or sebum. This eyeliner contains shimmer and glitter to really highlight and define your eyes. Use this eyeliner for a bold eye popping look by accentuating certain areas of the eye.

2) HOLIKA HOLIKA Magic Pole Mascara
The special spherical wand is the feature that made this mascara the best seller item amongst other Holika Holika products. It has rounded ball at the tip of the wand. The ball is to separate your lashes. When you remove the mascara, it comes off by pieces because of the fiber formula. It  will not give you "panda eyes", its waterproof, strong black lashes and curls your lashes.

3) CUORE K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h WP 
This is the finest eyeliner in Japan's market! It will last all day, which is why it is given the name "one day tattoo". However, it is still easy to remove with eye make-up remover. This brush-type eyeliner allows you to make very fine lines that will stay and not crumble off like most sponge type eyeliners. Many of beauty experts have raved over this product but you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the benefits of this great eyeliner! 

FACE: Don't let water, sweat or the heat affect the way you feel about your look this summer! Try out these recommendations - it doesn't get more waterproof than this!

4) FAIRYDROPS Candy Bar BB Cream 
was produced by Mayumi Yasutomo, a newscaster, who desired to have a product that made her skin look flawless while on camera. This shine-free, oil-free and waterproof product was the perfect solution. The product itself is a lightweight formula allowing you to apply the amount of layer you would like without feeling like your skin is being weighed down. Micro- gold pearl hides scars and freckles. Soft focus powder uses light diffusion not to show wrinkles and makes skin smooth. Cover with thin film, and protect from dry and rough skin. 

5) ETUDE HOUSE Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream  
promotes a silky complexion and brightened look with Pearl Mineral Powder infused sheer coverage.  Arbutin and Adenosine ingredients help whiten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while powerful SPF50 protects skin from harmful UV rays. This long-lasting BB cream is waterproof for better all day protection and wear.

6) MIZON Watermax Moisture BB Cream 
a lightweight moisture formula which provides a natural look and feel, yet covers skin with a hydrating finish. The High-tech water like texture gives your skin rich moisture and keeps it smooth and silky all day without irritation.
