These are 3 best mascaras for your most lovely lashes yet.
Do you remember when you were a teen and going to the pool was a gamble one took every Summer? The fear, ladies, the fear is real: runny mascara. Oh, sweet Maybelline, the dark circles of doom that haunted our adolescence and caused us to look constantly possessed while we looked up to wipe under our eyes. Yeah, we can see you reaching into the recesses of your youth, cringing. Ah, memories.
Today, we are wiser, more seasoned in the art of summertime makeup warfare. Over the years, we have all done the legwork, one tarantula-lash at a time, searching for the perfect waterproof mascara that will stay in place without clumping.
For a while there in the early 2000s, let me tell you – things were looking a little dismal. For me anyway. I was layering three different mascaras trying to achieve maximum fabulosity with a waterproof topcoat. So, dear Charlotte Tilbury, I humbly request forgiveness for my past actions and makeup fails that I shamelessly flaunted as decent.
But, with the thorns come the roses, and I think it is safe to say that we have learned a thing or two on our makeup journey. We have put together a list of the three best waterproof mascaras that are not only effective, but beautiful – with no flaking or smudging. In other words, your new summer bestie.
Our picks for the 3 best waterproof mascaras
HYPNÔSE Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara by Lancome
Hypnôse was a cult favorite that has finally been reinvented in a waterproof formula. So why do we love it? This one is fabulous for short lashes! Buildable and super soft, this mascara will grab all those barely-there lashes and give them their spotlight, honey!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
For real, though, this stuff is pretty damn great. Ironically, this is your beach day mascara, which is why we love it. This is your buddy, companion, and best friend when you are going for that super glowy and natural Maui moment. This is your girl. But be gentle with her – one coat, or you will have a little clumping, because it is also volumizing, so go light.
ARMANI Eyes to Kill Waterproof Lash Artillery
This is the friend you bring to the party. She is the one that says, “I’m a lady, and I like bourbon, too.” Armani has some of the best mascara out there, with a brush that lifts and separates your lashes beautifully.
This is a great mascara to wear to events as it gives you that glam-tastic edge with full fringe lashes and is also smudge-proof. Yes, evening glove approved. This summer, jump in the water, run that marathon, plant that garden, and look fabulous doing it! No more smudging and clumpy eyes for you! Try one of these babies today and tell us what you think. Make sure to take a photo with your new favorite and you could be featured in our stories. Happy summer glamming!
