Sometimes (all the time), a streak-free face doesn’t cut it. Waterproof shouldn’t be the only prerequisite on your list when picking mascaras for your next beach trip. Don’t settle for mediocre, stubby lashes just because you went for a swim or a climb. Have the most voluminous lashes on the hiking path with these mascaras resistant not just against the water, but all of summer’s weather extremities! Click the images below to shop these fabulous products directly!
This unassuming little blue tube has two proponents behind it: a beauty expert and Vogue India. Fashionista deputy editor Tyler McCall was a drifter when it came to mascaras, until she came across Eyeko’s Lash Alert. Now, she’s locked down. Vogue India also included it in its “11 melt-proof mascaras to get you through the season” slideshow, mentioning the mascara’s “water-resistant microfibres” that can “endure balmy temparatures.” And if you’ve ever been to India during the summer, you know how balmy it gets. Buy it here.
Summer means sweat and sweat means painful mascara flakes flooding into your eyes. But don’t opt out of wearing mascara altogether. That’s just dramatic. For those with sensitive eyes, choose a waterproof mascara with a gentler formula, like one that is mineral-based. Refinery29’s beauty editor Lexy Lebsack went so far as to say she hates mascara—and still loves Mineral Fusion’s Waterproof Mineral Mascara.
If you’re looking for the mascara that can endure all, look towards an Amazon’s lashes. Makeup artist Sarah Brock used Le Volume de CHANEL Waterproof mascara over actress Gal Gadot’s first layer of mascara on set of the box office-dominator Wonder Woman. Brock told Hello! this was to make Gadot’s lashes “look even bigger and make sure that it doesn’t smudge at all.” If you’re trying to save the world this summer and still look good in pictures, this is the mascara for you.
A hardy mascara doesn’t need to be hard on you. This mascara is vegan friendly, paraben-free and gluten-free! It may not be waterproof, but The Sun quoted Ciate spokesperson saying: “Unlike many of the mascaras on the market at the moment, Wonderwand gives four times more volume in just one coat without the use of any fibres. This means no fall out and no crumbling or smudging without compromising on the all-day lift and curl for a fluttery lash effect.” See for yourself the wonders of this wonderwand on English television presenter Holly Willoughby here. After posting her own picture on Instagram showing off the mascara, it sold out on Ciate London’s website last May!
