There’s nothing worse than watching your once perfectly applied eyeliner stream down your face at the first sign of water. Whether you’re in the pool, at the gym, or stuck in the rain, waterproof eyeliner is the best way to keep your cat eyes pointed and your smokey eyes smudged. A number of drugstore brands offer waterproof pencil, liquid, gel, and cream eyeliners that are comparable to higher-end options. Remember, since waterproof eyeliner sticks to the skin so effectively, it can be quite difficult to remove. A waterproof makeup remover and a damp cloth will help wipe away your eyeliner without pulling and irritating your skin.
