It’s freezing outside, but that doesn’t mean your beauty routine has to take a backseat to practicality. Even if the cold air is making tears stream down your face, you can still find makeup strong enough to withstand watery eyes and windswept snowflakes. Here are our favourite waterproof beauty products for cold weather.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof Mascara, $27
Waterproof mascara gets a bad wrap for being more clumpy than regular mascara, but it’s a winter must-have beauty product for those of us wishing to avoid raccoon face. Our favourite waterproof mascara is Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof. It’s got all the major lift, length and volume of the Lancome’s famous Hypnose mascara but with the added benefit of it being waterproof.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner, $20
If you’re looking for a miracle worker, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is quite possibly our favourite waterproof eye liner. It’s almost worth going out into the freezing cold and getting all teary-eyed just to come back inside to look in the mirror and see that your eye makeup hasn’t even moved. It’s also super easy to take off with soap or makeup remover.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream, $23
Make Up For Ever makes some of the best waterproof makeup for high glam factor that withstands the cold while still letting you experiment with colour. For waterproof eye shadow, we suggest using Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in bold colours like No. 26 Purple. Hey, if it’s good enough for the Canadian Olympic Synchro Team, we’re sure it will help you survive a Saturday night out on the town during late January.
Clinique Quick Blush, $23.50
The Clinique Quick Blush is a brush pre-loaded blush stick that will give you a rosy hue that won’t streak.
Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Makeup, $40
Finding a serious waterproof foundation is a difficult task, so that’s why we’re obsessing over Make Up For Ever’s Face & Body Liquid Makeup. Even though it’s totally waterproof, it still feels super light on your skin and leaves your skin looking even in tone and also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. It’s also a great way to cover up imperfections on the rest of your body, like scraped knees and scars, especially since it’s waterproof, which means it’s extra smudge-proof.
