    Best waterproof mascara?: Lancome hypnose
    Best waterproof eyeliner?: MUFE aqua eyes
    Best tip for summerproofing your makeup?: I really like Mineral foundation in the summertime–they make you look flawless and keep the oils at bay, and have SPF. I also like using a transfer resistant foundation like Lancome Teint idole for a more polished look.

    Use a very lightweight moisturizer with SPF so you don’t get too greasy during the day. Carry powder for touch ups.

    Stick to a more natural look, like waterproof mascara, light foundation and a lip stain on your lips and cheeks. Stains are the BEST for sweaty summer days when you don’t want to mess with your makeup.

    I also like a quick sweep of bronzer to give myself a little glow.

    Best waterproof eyeliner?: Bobbi Brown’s Gel Eyeliners… they don’t budge on me!
    Best tip for summerproofing your makeup?: Tinted moisturizers or BB Creams. This touch-up method works very well for me: (1) Blot your face; (2) Spritz your face with facial mist (e.g. Shu Uemura’s DepSea Water Facial Mist, or even Evian mist); (3) Dab off excess mist with tissue; (4) powder where needed.

    Foil your eyeshadow if it tends to crease.

    Put your foundation on with a damp sponge or brush – helps it to go on lighter and stay put better than thick makeup. Then, set with powder

    Best tip for summerproofing your makeup?: wear a good primer/base on eyes and face, and use only powders as opposed to creams whenever possible

  22. hi

    Best waterproof mascara?: Maybelline Full ‘n’ Soft WP! Some people complain it’s too natural, but I think if you add a light coat after the first one has dried, it becomes insanely gorgeous and dramatic.

    Best waterproof eyeliner?: Haven’t found the BEST liner, but I *like* L’Oreal HIP kohls.

    Best tip for summerproofing your makeup? primer, Primer, PRIMER! ALWAYS use bases for eyeshadows and liners, use powders on your face instead of liquids and WASH your face regularly. Take CARE of your skin – this will summerproof your face makeup. Powder blushes and cheek stains stay the longest, while matte lipsticks, lip tints and lip stains last longest on lips. Always use waterproof eye makeup. Use powderless blot tissues for absorbing excess oil and sweat.

    Hope I helped! :)

  23. Melissa

    Best tip for summerproofing your makeup?: mos.def a good PRIMER & fix+ so you don’t look SOO Matte, because if you do it’s just not going to look NATURAL, everybody sweats, especially during summer..
