8 Ace Waterproof Makeup To Beat The Heat

You can even go swimming with a full face of makeup, if you really want to.

We’re not asking you to plunge into the pool with makeup on, but it’s always reassuring to have on long-lasting makeup that won’t budge or smudge so that we can look as fresh as in the evening as we did in the morning. Here are our best picks for waterproof makeup that you can wear day-to-night. Just remember to remove them thoroughly with a good makeup remover before you hit the sack.

1. Kat Von D Lock-It Liquid Foundation, $56, in 45 shades
This vegan-friendly liquid foundation gives full coverage and is also waterproof, transfer-resistant and fade-proof. Just one pea-sized drop is all you need to give you a matte and flawless-looking finish. No touch-ups necessary. 2. Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation, $65, in 21 shades
Created to withstand the extreme conditions of a runway show, you can even wear this waterproof and sweat-resistant foundation to your next hot yoga session. It’s tested and approved by all of Dior’s professional makeup artists and gives skin a natural, luminous, second-skin finish. 3. Lancome Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara, $48
This waterproof and smudge-proof mascara voluminises and lengthens lashes with just one coat. We like that the wand separates lashes and coats them without clumping them up. We even wore it into the shower to test its waterproof claim and it passed with flying colours. 4. Urban Decay Brow Endowed, $42
This dual-ended brow volumiser gives you a natural-looking my-brows-but-better finish. The primer on one end volumises your brow hairs, while the brow cream on the other helps fill in your rows and define them. The formula is also smudge- and transfer-proof, and sweat- and oil-resistant for up to 24 hours. 5. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, $32
Do you remember that review from a girl who got into a car accident but still managed to take a picture with her eyeliner still on fleek? This is the eyeliner responsible for that viral story. The high-pigment, smudge-resistant formula is delivered via a precise brush tip so you can create any eyeliner look you want – from a simple line to that enviable cat-eye flick. 6. Chanel Signature de Chanel Intense Longwear Eyeliner Pen, $79
A waterproof eyeliner doesn’t necessarily mean it stays on oily eyelids but this one does. The brush applicator glides perfectly on skin so you can draw an impeccable cat’s eye. By varying the pressure used, you can also draw a thin or thick line with precision. 7. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush, $47, in 13 shades
This fade-proof blusher is said to last at least 12 hours. It has Amazonian clay to minimise oil production while hydrating skin and keeping the product in place. 8. Anna Sui Creamy Eye Color, $19, in seven shades
The highly pigmented eye colour has an oil-based formula that makes it long-lasting. Rose canina fruit oil, peach kernel oil and macadamia seed oil also act as emollients so the eyeshadow glides on easily.
