Everyone’s in the midst of planning their holidays, and as beach getaways are pretty popular among us girls, we’ve tried and tested a few make-up products to see which ones are really waterproof. After all, you don’t want your eyeliner or mascara to be running all over your face when you meet a hunk at the beach, do you? Here are some of the products that convinced us of their waterproof quality!
Swimming or tanning under the sun can leave you looking fairly washed-out after some time. Beat pale lips and invest in the best combination for gorgeous and eternally glossy lips with Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip Liner and Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Lip Color. Start with the Aqua Lip Liner, trace the outline of your lips and apply two layers of lip color. Give the color a minute to dry and then apply a layer of the gloss to seal the deal. Believe it or not, you’ll have up to a whole day of color and shine without even having to think about touching up. What’s amazing is that the gloss doesn’t even wear off after you step out of the pool.
Eye makeup is an essential to keep you looking good when you go out from day to night. Beat pale peepers and inject some color on your peepers by playing around with colored eyeliners. We’ve fallen head-over-heels with these colors by Urban Decay. The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil will be worth the investment once you see how amazingly smooth it applies on your eyes, and that intensity of color in just one swipe! Or pick just happens to be colored-eyeliners with a touch of shimmer. We highly recommend Abyss and Psychedelic Sister, a deep aqua-blue shimmer and shimmery purple to give you that mermaid feel!
If you’re not totally into colors, give the classic black eyeliner a miss and opt for brown one instead. Our favorite? Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 25L. A beautiful chocolate brown that’s deep and tough as wood!
If you like your eyeshadow tough and long-lasting, complement the heat of the sun with pink eyeshadow. We love Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eyeshadow Pencil in Noise – it offers a beautiful pink that’ll suit every skin tone and a shimmer that’s sure to make you fall in love with pink all over again.
For major intensity and a bang for a buck, Maybelline’s Color Tattoo is an absolute steal! For less than RM20, you can carry this little pot of gold and use it as an eyeshadow base, eyeliner or just a touch of color on your eyes. You can use your finger or a good brush and see intense color around your eyes! For our pick, we chose Tenacious Teal and Tough As Taupe. Everyone needs a gorgeous bright and a nice neutral to complement the beautiful blues of the ocean, and the lightness of the sand.
Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye range will be available in Sephora Malaysia in June 2013.
Maybelline’s Color Tattoo is available in all leading pharmacies nationwide.
