    Best waterproof mascara? I’d love to find one (daughter is getting married in 1 month; I hope I don’t cry but I fear I will be very teary-eyed!) So far, I’m counting on L’Oreal Voluminous waterproof or something else with Clarins’s mascara “sealant” over-top)
    Best waterproof eyeliner? GOSH (not sure just how waterproof it claims to be but it wears well on me)
    Best transfer-proof lip product? I honestly don’t know! The few I’ve tried have been drying and not very nice, with the exception of MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipcreme.

  7. becca

    Your skin tone/coloring: nc/nw10, very fair neutral
    Best waterproof mascara? covergirl lashblast waterproof
    Best waterproof eyeliner? urban decay 24/7 liquid eyeliners
    Best transfer-proof lip product? lip stains

  8. Laurel

    Your skin tone/coloring: neutral mufe 117 I’m tanning now so I can’t really say. Dark features
    Best waterproof mascara? I like the Anastasia lash genius topcoat. It makes any mascara waterproof but I find its easier to remove than waterproof and I don’t have to buy a specifically waterproof mascara!
    Best waterproof eyeliner? If I was going to line the lid I’d say makeup forever aqua eyes but for waterline I’d say maybelline master drama or too faced perfect eyes
    Best transfer-proof lip product? Nothing except liquid stain like benefit CHA CHA tint

  9. Katie

    Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral/Beige
    Best waterproof mascara? Right now I’m absolutely loving Maybelline “The Rocket” waterproof. It works great in the humid, hot climate I live in.
    Best waterproof eyeliner? I personally love MUFE Aqua liner, although I have yet to find one that is completely budge-proof.
    Best transfer-proof lip product? I wouldn’t know, not a concern for me!

  10. LC

    I have light skin with neutral undertones–UD Naked Skin in 3.5 or Korres in Light Sand for reference.

    Best waterproof mascara is Benefit’s They’re Real.
    Best waterproof liner is Stila’s Stay-All-Day Liquid Liner. Possibly my favorite makeup product ever.
    Any of the MAC matte lipsticks I’ve found are pretty transfer-proof and stay through eating, at least 😉

  11. Lydia

    Your skin tone/coloring: Medium with yellow undertones (NC30)
    Best waterproof mascara? Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill
    Best waterproof eyeliner? MAC Fluidline, though it’s not completely waterproof. MAC Liquidlast is the most tenacious eyeliner I’ve tried, but it’s so hard to get off that I avoid using it unless it’s raining heavily
    Best transfer-proof lip product? Hourglass Opaque Rouge! Love the formula–it’s great for anyone who snacks/drinks a lot or smokes. I just wish they had more colors because I’ve collected all the bold shades.

  12. Chelsea

    I’m getting married in two months, reading this thread is going to be super helpful!

  13. Chau Dang

    Skintone/ color: MAC NC25, Nars Fiji, Chanel Vitalumiere B20
    Best waterproof mascara: Lancome voluminous waterproof
    Best waterproof eyeliner: Milani liquify, UD 24/7, MUFE Aqualiner
    Best transfer proof lip product: Armani Rouge d’Armani in 401 and 600, BobbiBrown creamy matte in Jenna

  14. brittney

    Your skin tone/coloring: I’m an NC15 in MAC. I’m pretty pale most of the time and honestly not too sure what undertones I have. But NC15 is by far the most perfect match for my skin tone.
    Best waterproof mascara? Honestly, I don’t ever use waterproof mascara. I’ve never had any issues with regular mascaras running or smudging so some of my favorites are Cover Girl Clump Crusher, MAC false lashes, and Lancôme Doll Lashes.
    Best waterproof eyeliner? Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liners. The best ever.
    Best transfer-proof lip product? Honestly, I’m not sure. I mainly use glosses and none of them claim to be transfer resistant. I would love to find something that lasts longer throughout the day without drying out my lips.

  15. calimom

    Skin tone-light-medium, warm to neutral
    Mascara-Blinc mascara (a tubing mascara that will never smudge)
    Eyeliner-Avon Glimmersticks Liqui-Glide (automatic pencil that applies easily and lasts forever)
    Lipstick-haven’t really found one but Revlon gloss balm lasts a good long time for me

  16. Your skin tone/coloring: MUFE 130 (light medium neutral to pink undertones)
    Best waterproof mascara? Lancome Doll Lashes or Armani Eyes to Kill
    Best waterproof eyeliner? Urban Decay 24/7
    Best transfer-proof lip product? I’m a smoker so nothing I’ve tried so far could handle my cigarettes, but Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon topped with Pixi Lip & Line Primer-Nearly Clear came close.

  17. The best waterproof mascare is definitely Chanel Inimitable Waterproof!

    I don’t have enough experience with the liner and lipsticks to pick a favorite.

  18. Melissa

    Your skin tone/coloring: Medium (128 MUFE)
    Best waterproof mascara? Chanel!!! It’s very hard to remove.
    Best waterproof eyeliner? I love Clinque eyeliner!
    Best transfer-proof lip product? Still looking. :)

  19. Your skin tone/coloring: fair
    Best waterproof mascara? Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes
    Best waterproof eyeliner? Stila Smudge Sticks
    Best transfer-proof lip product? IT Cosmetics YLBB Waterproof lip liners. they recently sent me a couple of their nude shades to test as sampled and they are completely waterproof! I wear them solo, just filling in the entire lip. they are really a lip liner/primer and stain all in one
