Best Waterproof Makeup that Stays on All Day

Women who wear makeup, of course, have had once experienced tackiness in their faces especially when exposed to environmental factors such as heat and humidity.

Some makeup can last longer for the whole entire day; some not. Well, it depends on the brand names that you choose.

There are several trusted and popular makeup brands available in amazon. Of course, the more popular the brand name, the more it is expensive. But, you can still scour for the cheap, trusted, and popular makeup brands online. All you have to do is take time to search and be patient, but in this hub, I will mention a few cheap long wear makeup.

Below are few examples of water-proof makeup from renowned cosmetics manufacturers. Listed here are from lip gloss, eye shadow, mascara, eyeliner, to foundation.

L'Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss

If you're going to wear just one product while you're out in the sun (aside from sunscreen, of course!), a long-wearing lip gloss is the way to go. It is a blend of gloss, color and balm. The moisturizing L'Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss does it all and stays on for eight hours— will last through eating, drinking and, of course, sunbathing.

The word "infallible" included in the brand is true to its name. The lip gloss has a very true staying power, which means the color stays true without fading, shading, or dulling.

The lip gloss comes with Petit Couer applicator that contours lips precisely, giving you a smooth, even, and flawless finish.

What's more? L'Oreal is a trusted makeup brand and this lip gloss is cheap.

Clinique Quick Eyes Cream Shadow

It delivers a water resistant, crease-proof creamy powder formula able to last a full 10 hours, according to Clinique. Each works by itself, in conjunction with the other shadows in the collection, or as a base for powder shades. Light, velvety cream glides on vibrant color, stays beautifully and color true - in pearly shades from subtle to high-luster. Even better, the shadows, which come in nine shades, are ideal for those with sensitive eyes. Ophthalmologist tested.

The container's size is quite handy and portable because it is made to be carried along with you as you go. The promo travel size is only 2.3 ml.

Glominerals gloMoist Hydration Mist

Messy application is a huge hassle -- raccoon eyes and blotchy skin are not sexy. Consider the convenient Glominerals gloMoist Hydration Mist. It will help you avoid beauty misfortunes like smudging. A blend of antioxidants and anti-aging benefits in a mist that hydrates instantly. Spray the skin before or after makeup application to set makeup and to refresh the skin throughout the day. Use when skin feels dry, when exposed to dry climate conditions or when skin needs an instant burst of hydration.

L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Waterproof Mascara

This mascara is amazing because of its revolutionary, unique brush applicator -- not common to other mascaras available in the stores. The asymmetrical butterfly-shaped brush lash line extends and lifts the outer corner lashes to create a winged-out effect. This is great for those whose outer lashes are long so you don't have to poke your eye anymore just to coat your lashes on, volumizing at the roots and stretching lashes outward to create silky, spectacular lashes that flutter like wings.

The reviews of this product say that this is the best waterproof mascara ever, even toppling the expensive ones. It doesn't flake off, very long lasting, smudge-free, and easy to wash off.

Jane Iredale PurePressed Base

With this little compact, you're getting a concealer, a powder and an SPF 20, not to mention a natural glow. It's also water-resistant and easy to apply—it has all the ingredients for a perfect summer beauty staple! It is highly recommended for all ages especially younger girls who start to wear foundation.

This pressed mineral powder foundation is more matte than loose powders, free from synthetic chemicals, oil-fee, and contains anti-oxidants such as Pine Bark Extract and Pomegranate Extract. Pomegranate Extract protects your skin from UV damage.

It contains key ingredients -- Zinc Oxide, for bacterial protection and to lessen inflammation, and Titanium Dioxide to provide coverage and color.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

If you're out and about, a little eye makeup can go a long way. These smear-proof Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner will last in the heat and water. It is non-irritating, easy to apply, and stays put even during the hot humid summer months. Choose from several colors to see which suits best.

This a liquid eyeliner, a gel formula, that glides on smoothly and precisely, and dries up quickly.

The black ink is deep jet black which doesn't smear or crease, and gives a really crisp, black color professional look.

According to reviews of this product on amazon, they've never gone wrong in choosing this product because even though they feel their makeup is slowly melting, this eyeliner won't smudge a bit, and they have been using this for many years now.

Cargo Melt-Proof Foundation

This foundation is ideal for normal and oily skin types due to its oil absorbing properties for long-lasting, smudge-free wear. It nourishes your skin because it contains vitamin E and C that help fight against free radicals, repair minor damage on the skin, and treat fine lines.

A convenient compact that serves dual purpose as both the foundation and setting powder. You can either apply it with a dry sponge for a medium coverage, or wet sponge for a fuller coverage.

The matte finish stays all day and many customers are satisfied with this product and are using this for many years now.

if you are a brand-conscious and have stuck to your own brand for years now, I think it's time to try my list in this hub.

This hub covers all kinds of makeup-- from powder foundation to mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip gloss, and even the hydration spray is included here to set makeup, to protect from smudge, and hydrates your skin all day

Have you used any of the makeup on this list? If so, how do you feel about it?

    Hey Beth, A very good hub! I may try some of these products. I find it is hard for me to find make up that suits me. Mostly it makes my face have dry spots so I just don't wear it. Thanks for sharing this great info. Keep up the good work.

    You have a good day: Naomi
