The Best Mascaras for Summer

Clinique High Impact ($14.00) is a “tube” mascara, which means that it isn’t technically waterproof. Instead, it’s heat, sweat, and water resistant so long as it isn’t warm water. Since it isn’t waterproof, it washes off easier than waterproof mascara–just use warm water. You can see me wearing it here.

Maybelline Full ‘n Soft Waterproof ($7.00) gives you soft, full lashes that won’t smudge, flake, or fade away in the hotter summer months. I love this mascara for a more natural lash look, but I always have a tube of the waterproof stuff for those lazy summer days, too.

Prescriptives Here to Stay ($19.50) gives you lots of length, richness in blackness, and it’s designed to last you all day, literally–24 hours. It does a good job of holding up throughout the summer for sure.

L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof ($8.00) gets you summerproofed lashes with lots of volume with wispy, lush lashes. I personally don’t like to wear waterproof mascaras everyday, so I often opt for solid, proven drugstore buys for my waterproof mascaras.

To learn more about or purchase these mascaras, check out Drugstore.com, Nordstrom.com, Prescriptives, and Sephora.com.
