    Best waterproof eyeliner? Still looking! I have monolids and EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN smears on me… but Bobbi Brown’s gel liner is decent.
    Best waterproof mascara? Still looking for above reasons…. so far, Maybelline’s The Falsies Flared is a top contender. Still smudges by the middle of the day, though :(

    Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7!! These last better than MUFE on me.

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mar A. Mar

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light/neutral
    Best waterproof eyeliner? Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner or Aqua Eyes
    Best waterproof mascara? Maybelline Great Lash or Urban Decay Cannonball.
    Best body sunscreen? Sun Bum! Amazing, amazing. I can’t recommend the brand enough. I have Continuous Spray for daily use and Premium Endurance for running or hiking. They’re both great no more what your active level is that day. And the spray is lightweight and non-greasy.

  14. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/cool toned
    Best waterproof eyeliner? I don’t wear eyeliner on those rare occasions when I’m going to be in the water but I’m really loving the new Sephora Waterproof Contour Eye Pencils. I can’t attest to how waterproof they are but they apply so beautifully, last well all day on me and come in the most beautiful array of colours.
    Best waterproof mascara? I rarely wear mascara and it’s not something I’d every wear to the beach or pool.
    Best body sunscreen? For my body, I’m not all that fussy, really, so long as it’s broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection of SPF 45 or higher (I’m using 60 right now). If it’s cheap and cheerful, so much the better – means we’ll all use it liberally, which is the best thing. I heard the other day in a report that the cheap brands from WalMart and Target were among the best ones in some recent testing (by the Canadian or US dermatological organization of some sort…)

    Best waterproof mascara? Admittedly, I’ve tried few, but Maybelline’s Waterproof Stiletto holds up quite nicely.
    Best body sunscreen? Target’s own brand is surprisingly good, but I rather like Eucerin’s SPF15 body moisturizer.

  25. NeenaJ

    Skin tone: fair with freckles and redness
    Best Waterproof Liner: Cargo Swimmables Eyeliner. These are the BEST waterproof pencil liners I’ve ever found.
    Best Waterproof Mascara: Maybelline Full n Soft Waterproof but – it doesn’t fare well when it comes into contact with lotion/sunscreen so that’s a poolside fail for me. I’d probably go without at the beach or pool.
    Best Body Sunscreen: I’m really picky about my facial sunscreens but, for body it’s anything SPF30 or higher from Hawaiian Tropic. It needs to be reapplied after being in the water but no problem because I cannot get enough of that smell. Love it!

    MAC LIQUID LAST in aqualine and Blue herizon. I wear these in the gym, at pool or beach and they do not budge.

    Best waterproof mascara:I’ve only tried makeup forever smoky lash.

    Best sunscreen: any brand that is sunBLOCK (not sunSCREEN ) with titanium dioxide as the ingredient. Because it blocks the rays(sunBLOCK) instead of just absorbing it (SunSCREEN)

  28. Skin tone/coloring: fair with cool, pink undertones.
    Best waterproof eyeliner: Tarte Amazonian Clay waterproof liner. I had a hysterical crying fit a couple of months ago and it stayed on! I was dumbfounded.
    Best waterproof mascara: Maybelline Define-A-Lash, hands down.
    Best body sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock. Everything else feels oily in comparison.
