Three Makeup-Artist-Approved Waterproof Mascaras

As much as we love summer, there is just one thing about it that we could do without. And that’s how the heat always tends to ruin our mascara. The good news is that the solution is pretty simple—switching to a waterproof formula. Not sure which one to try? We asked three makeup artists for their favorites.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils ($30)
“When in need of waterproof mascara, I love this one because it comes in four colors, says makeup artist Joshua Ristaino. “It lengthens, keeps the curl and separates the lashes for a dramatic ‘false lash’ effect. It really doesn't come off, so it’s ideal for weddings, rainy days and even the beach!”

COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara ($7)
“I recommend this mascara because it's a great budget-friendly option,” says makeup artist Nicole Walmsley. “The waterproof formula is shiny and adds tons of volume. You just need to use two coats for an extra dramatic look.” 

Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara ($19)
“The spiral brush makes it easier to apply and coat all lashes, while its formula gives you a thicker more dramatic look,” says lash experts and Lashfully co-owners Liv Contreras and Matana LePlae. “The waterproof version is ultra long- wearing and smudge- and tear- proof so your lashes will last all day.”
