Say goodbye to panda eyes. Here are the top picks for summer makeup products that will beat the heat and stay put when you get wet and wild at the 303 Magazine Pool Party this Sunday, July 13th
Don’t make me choose; I love them both.
Lancome Definicils Waterproof Mascara, $27
This mascara packs a punch when it comes to volumizing thin lashes. Lancome is my go-to for defining my lashes and sealing in color for smudge-proof adventures, whether you are out for a run or relaxing poolside.
Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara, $20
I have not spent a full summer using the Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara, but the few times I have worn it, I have been truly amazed. This mascara just won’t quit. The application is silky and gives absolutely no clumps. My favorite part is that it leaves my lashes soft and feathery, not crunchy and solidified like most waterproof formulas.
Rouge Cream Blush, $6
Cream blush is the best choice if you plan on splashing around. The Rouge Cream Blush by far outlasts the competition. It can be a little tacky to the touch but it is highly pigmented and the color payoff is well worth the extra moments of blending.
Makeup Forever Waterproof Aqua Cream, $23
The mother of all long lasting eye creams is the Makeup Forever Waterproof Aqua Cream. Makeup Forever has outdone themselves with this formula. The color selection and pigments are irresistible and the luminous color stays put. This product plays double duty and can be used for bush, highlight and even lip color.
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35, $39
Smashbox products seem to always dazzle me. The Camera Ready BB Cream follows suit. With a five-in-one formula, this cream helps you achieve skin perfection while hydrating and protecting you from harmful UV rays. This cream is lightly tinted and gives my skin a natural summer glow. The full size version of this product comes in eight luminous shades, and two shades in travel size. Beach vacation anyone?
MWAH Lip Balm Slider Tub, $4
This tropical balm is a one-way ticket to the beach. It has really fun and summery packaging in three great colors. Made with 99% natural products, the application is smooth and leaves lips ultra-moisturized. I love the Coconut Chick; it’s yummy and gorgeous.
