I don't typically wear a lot of makeup during the summer. But I'm not willing to give up my mascara. So to avoid having black ink smudge and run down my face, I opt for waterproof formulas--the kind that doesn't leave my lashes dry and clumpy. Here are 6 waterproof mascaras that have been giving me life this summer!

The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23)  gives me SO much length and volume, that people have literally asked me if I’ve had falsies on. Three coats and you’ll look like Kim Kardashian.

What I love about the Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara ($20) is that it gives me long, dramatic lashes without the dryness or the clumps. 


Lancome 3

The Lancome Definicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara ($28) is an oldie but a goodie. With just one coat, my lashes look longer, wider, fuller and don’t smudge for a second, despite the weather. 

Tarte 4

The cool thing about Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof Mascara ($21) is how soft and flexible it leaves lashes ($21). I haven’t really experienced that with other waterproof formulas. 


Diorshow 5

There’s a reason why the Diorshow Waterproof Mascara ($29) has become an industry staple. One sweep and this thing not only thickens and lengthens lashes but also adds some instant curve. I’ve yet to experience any smudging with it either.

The swan-neck wand on the Lancome Grandioise Waterproof Intense Multi-benefit Mascara ($32) provides an angle that allows the wand to grab at every single lash. The formula dries fast without leaving lashes too dry and stays put all day.
