How to make your makeup waterproof in five easy steps

The weather is heating up, and sweat-proof makeup will be at the top of our summer must-have list. These tips will help you whether you’re going to the beach or attending a music festival. These quick and simple steps will show you how to waterproof makeup.


The foundation is the basis for your look, so it’s important to start right. After applying sunscreen and priming skin, you’ll want a water-resistant foundation–preferably one that offers additional SPF protection. Oxygenetix’s Oxygenating Foundation is a great option for people with sensitive skin and those who suffer from eczema or rosacea. Apply this foundation with a synthetic or clean makeup brush.

Sun Protection

It won’t protect your skin for the entire day, even if you apply sunscreen before applying makeup. If you plan to spend the day outdoors, it’s important to reapply your sunscreen. Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Total Shield SPF50 allows you to apply sunscreen on top of your makeup easily. This broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen provides 100% protection. It contains 22.5% titanium oxide and 22.5% zirconium oxide. This powder sunscreen is easy to use. Just sweep it across your skin.


Eyeliner is the second most important makeup product when learning how to make makeup waterproof after mascara. We need a product that will stay put all day. Our eyes are constantly moving. You can find water-resistant eyeliners everywhere, but how about creating a stylish cat eye or a trendy smokey eye in just seconds? Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner is the perfect solution for this! This eyeliner is a cream-to powder formula that comes with a brush built right into the cap. It helps you to create lines that are precise and won’t fade, smear or crease.

A tip: Apply Jane iredale Smooth Affair Eyes before lining your eyelids to make your shadow last longer.


The worst nightmares we have about makeup are “raccoon eye” caused by mascara that isn’t up to par. Choose a tube mascara to avoid this cosmetic disaster. Tubing mascaras are different from traditional mascaras, which coat the lashes in color. They create a tube around each lash, which helps prevent clumping and flaking. What’s our favorite? Blinc mascara is our favorite. This mascara is wwater-resistantand stays on all day. It’s also easier to remove. The “tubes” will easily slide off with a little water and light pressure.


Lips are a crucial part of learning how to make waterproof makeup. Matte finish is best for lips. TheBalm Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick has our vote for lip color that will last. This liquid lipstick is a favorite of both LovelySkin customers and staff because it has a long-lasting formula with enticing vanilla mint scent. This liquid lip color stays on all day long without feeling flaky or dry.
