Waterproof is an essential beauty product in my makeup collection. I don’t like using regular mascara because I’m an emotional gal but also because waterproof mascara just works ten times better and holds up through the long days.

There is also the risk of mascara smudges or flaking, which don’t even get me started boo! Waterproof mascara has proven over time that its the best of the best and while you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on mascara, I will bluntly tell you that you shouldn’t!

Check out a few of my favorite waterproof mascaras both high end and from the drugstore. Trust me when I say they’re perfect for this summer heat and to be used every day!

This mascara is an OG for me. In fact, it was the very first mascara I ever tried and I still buy it to this day! It gives my lashes great length, separates them, and is super waterproof (perfect for those who love staying in the water during the summer heat).

Another OG in my makeup collection, I cannot say anything but great things about this mascara. It’s inexpensive and the quality is unreal, I always find myself coming back to it! It gives my lashes length and makes them super full!

I love the original version of Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara so when they came out with a waterproof version, I had to have it! For those who want thicker looking lashes with length, I highly recommend this mascara. It is one of my favorites that is high-end and will last you through a long day!

M.A.C. In Extreme Dimension Waterproof Mascara, $24

When M.A.C. described this mascara as waterproof they literally meant it because water and soap don’t take it off! It never clumps and adds a great amount of volume to the lashes.

L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara, $9.99

I absolutely love this mascara. It makes my lashes so long and for someone who’s eyelashes stick straight out, it gives them that curve I’ve always wanted without even having to curl them. I’ve had my fair share of trying drugstore mascaras and I am not easy to please but this one is definitely my favorite because its bomb and affordable!
