These days, it’s hard to get anywhere without breaking a sweat. The recent haze sure isn’t helping either. With the weather so muggy and humid, prevent your makeup from sliding or melting off your face by turning to these water-resistant options.
Browhaus Heavy-Duty Bi-Liners ($12.90 each, Browhaus outlets)
This dual function product works as both an eyeshadow and a gel liner. It comes double-ended – on one side, you have the gel liner, and on the other, a built-in rubber tip to smudge out the colour if you’d like to use it as an eyeshadow. When applied, this survived a hot yoga class without smudging or running. Love it? You can also purchase the Browhaus Heavy-Duty Bi-Liners in a set of five colours – Noir Shimmer, Midnight Blue, Burgundy, Amber and Blush – for $50.
K-Palette Lasting 2 Way Eyebrow Pencil 1 Day Tattoo ($23.90, Sasa)
Use the pencil tip on this to define your eyebrows then fill in the sparser areas with the powder tip. You’ll get full, natural-looking brows that stay on even after a workout sesh since this is sweat-proof, sebum-proof and waterproof. Available in three colours: Light Brown, Natural Brown and Grayish Brown.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Waterproof Glide-On Eye Shadow ($35)
We like these stick eyeshadows because they go on really smoothly, but the main draw is in how waterproof they are – these stayed on even after a dip in the pool. Available in a total of 15 shades with various finishes (satin, metallic, matte and diamond).
