    Black blotches from smudged mascara can be an embarrassment. Waterproof mascara holds up in rain, the pool, and with tears while still giving thin, pale lashes gorgeous volume. A waterproof mascara uses a wax, such as beeswax, to ensure it resists smudging in water. Some people, however, are allergic to waterproof mascara, so make sure to test it first. If it irritates your eyes, a hypoallergenic brand may work for you. Beauty experts also warn against wearing waterproof mascara daily because it can weaken lashes. This mascara shouldn’t clump. Some add volume to lashes while others just make them look darker. You should be able to remove waterproof mascara with an oil-based makeup remover. Mascara applicators can be straight or curved, thick or thin.
