Pretty in the rain


Put beauty to the test if long-lasting coverage is the quality to see through rain or storm. Here are some picks for the best waterproof makeup that will stick through it all.

Keeping it fresh

Get cheeky with a lasting product that will keep you looking perfectly flushed, day to night. K-Palette Lasting Cheek Tint in Rose looks pretty on most skin tones, and will stay put all day with minimal or no retouching needed. Apply with your fingers or a damp Beautyblender.

The eyes have it

Smoky eyes are once again a hit. All you have to do is to make sure they last. Use a mix of cream and powder formulas for maximum impact and longevity, and a smudge-proof and waterproof liner to complete the look (like Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Ink Eye Liner or Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner). Don’t forget to pair with an equally strong pair of arches with the help of K-Palette 24H Real Lasting Eyebrow.

Ace that base

Rain or shine, base products should last throughout the day. If you want a matte formula, Rihanna’s Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is a new breakthrough product getting raves, as is NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.

For contour and highlight, cream formulas are best in the rain because, as we know, oil and water don’t mix. In case of contact with water, simply pat the area dry with tissue and retouch with powder if needed.

Lash out

Needless to say, you need a good waterproof mascara. Besides having lengthening and volumizing powers, a trusty product won’t smudge and budge, in good times and in bad. Try Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof or the all-time favorite Maybelline Great Lash.
