What's that sound you hear? Probably rain, quite frankly. The summer, we don't need to tell you, decided to phone it in this year, so instead of us being able to show off our great summer beauty looks, we've been covering our faces with anything we can get our hands on, thanks to never having an umbrella handy when there's a sudden downpour.
Other than making sure there's always an umbrella in our possession, there is another solution: Invest in a decent waterproof mascara to stop your makeup running down your face. Not only will they work in a downpour, they'll work in a pool, the ocean, and even a particularly humid tube. Ahead, behold the waterproof mascaras that will have you covered.
We were particularly impressed by how 3ina's affordable mascara doesn't dry out like a lot of waterproof mascaras can, nor does it get even a little bit clumpy.
This is a godsend for anyone who does sport regularly and just doesn't have the time to keep applying makeup post-gym.
The biggest-selling mascara in Japan not only lengthens and curls incredibly well, it also won't run down your face. A word of warning: You will need a decent makeup remover to get rid of this one. Try an oil-based one to get rid without scrubbing your eyes.
A decent mascara that gives you a baby-doll lashes effect and won't run.
One of this editor's favourites, the Bad Gal lash has been around for a while. Expect rock 'n' roll lashes that don't budge.
This mascara was "rigorously field-tested in the ocean as well as sweat-drenched gym conditions," so you know it works.
Okay, it's waterproof, you know that much, but the beauty about this one is that it's buildable, so you can create as dramatic a look as you want, depending on how many coats you apply. No clumps here.
This formula promises to disappear if you apply warm water to it, but won't budge for 24 hours under rain or sweat. It's also been tested by ophthalmologists, so you know it's good for your eyes too.
