Gearing up for summer also means stocking up on the best beauty products for hassle-free fun, and waterproof and sweat-proof mascaras are key to ensuring your makeup looks flawless at the end of each day. Whether you plan on basking in the sun, flying on a plane for endless hours, or dancing the night away, keeping your mascara under control will help make your eyes continue to pop all night long.
If you're about the little details like me, there's nothing better than curling your lashes and adding a mascara that will lengthen and plump — especially for a long period of time. Wearing waterproof mascaras may seem like they would require more to take off, but normally a good eye makeup remover at night will do the trick. It's especially important to take off your waterproof mascara before you sleep because you don't want the formula to clump and harden overnight where you are tempted to pick at your lashes the next day and risk breaking them.
It's difficult to find beauty products that work well for you, but here are some of the best sweat-proof mascaras out there. Forget your makeup smudging from the heat, because these mascaras are sure to have your lashes looking full, long, and clean, no matter how hot it gets.
