13 Waterproof Makeup Tutorials For All Your Summer Needs — VIDEOS
Between the ruthless heat, the unforgiving humidity, and the endless invitations to pool and beach parties, wearing makeup in the summer can be a serious struggle. If you want to avoid having your makeup melt off or disappear entirely under such circumstances, waterproof makeup tutorials might be your answer. MUAs and vloggers have valuable insight on the best waterproof products, tips, and tricks to help make sure your face doesn't have to suffer at the hands of seasonal weather.
I know the struggle firsthand, of course. My oily, acne-prone skin practically forbids me from applying my usual face of makeup come June. If I even put a drop of foundation on my visage, it will melt, it will clump, and it will turn into a hot mess within the hour. Thankfully, vloggers aren't stingy about their specific approaches, and offer a lot of how-to for creating a lasting weather-proof makeup look for summer.
You might be wondering if it's even possible to wear a full face of cosmetics after June without it getting ruined by outdoor activities or other summer fun. And I'm here to tell you yes: Yes it is. Take the word of the following beauty gurus who have endless advice on how to make your makeup totally doable — and gorgeous — all summer long.
The real test of a waterproof makeup tutorial? When the look holds up even after the MUA takes a swim in a pool — on camera. That's exactly what Irishcel507 did in her tutorial.

Let's be real: Most of us don't have the finances to splurge on super expensive, waterproof-specific products just for one season. Thankfully, there's no need to, since waterproof products exist for humans on a budget. With Brittany Marie's tutorial, you can create a bright, stunning look that won't sweat or melt off.
