Nothing says fun and flirty quite like a quick coat of mascara. But a few drops of rain or a sweaty workout session can quickly turn your cute look into a smeared black mess. Luckily, there are a wide variety of waterproof options to keep your mascara locked in place no matter the weather. A quality waterproof formula won’t smudge, smear, or run no matter what water you come in contact with. But, with all that staying power waterproof mascara is often tough to remove. Look for a makeup remover specifically designed for waterproof makeup. Alternatively, you can use a little coconut oil to wipe your mascara off at the end of the day.
