Waterproof makeup: a real sensation in the world of beauty
Although September has already arrived, the hot days are far from over. And since in summer experts recommend more moderate make-up, this does not mean that we have to give it up completely because of the heat. Foundation, mascaras, lipsticks… there is a wide range of makeup suited to our summer needs. Do you have sensitive skin? No problem ! Composed from non-aggressive natural active ingredients as well as shea extracts, water-resistant beauty products are suitable for all skin types, and more particularly for sensitive ones. However, if you have any doubts, do not hesitate to visit a dermatologist.
So, let's get down to the basics and decipher waterproof makeup in the guide that follows!
Preparation for makeup is an essential step that should not be overlooked
Regardless of whether it is makeup as is or waterproof products, the preparation of the skin is a key element which consists of three absolutely important steps:
- Preparation of the face: start by removing all the impurities from your face by cleaning it well with your favorite product, provided that it is suitable for your skin type. This step will make your waterproof makeup more durable and more "stable".
- Hydration: Give your skin the optimal hydration it needs by applying your moisturizing day cream with, of course, SPF. Choose products without oils to avoid clogging the pores and wait until the skin absorbs the cream well before applying makeup.
- Water resistant products tend to be "heavy" and "dry". The use of primer therefore facilitates their application and allows them to last longer. In addition to tightening pores and absorbing fat, the primer also creates a protective barrier for the skin.

After having remembered the golden rules, it's time to get down to the basics and take a closer look at waterproof makeup by taking a look at the most used products: foundation, concealer, bronzer, eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow and lipstick. Finally, we'll give you some useful tips for removing makeup. Hold the line !
Water resistant foundation
When choosing a water-resistant foundation, opt for long-lasting products, without greasy substances and necessarily provided with SPF protection. Forget powder foundations and opt for fluid ones. These are famous for their high resistance to high temperatures because they reduce perspiration and guarantee an intact makeup! To avoid any unsightly shine in summer, it is advisable to then apply a thin layer of mattifying powder evenly.
Water resistant concealer - erase imperfections
The waterproof concealer can become your best ally during hot days! No matter if you use it alone to camouflage redness, discoloration, pimples, dark circles or in combination with foundation, this miraculous beauty product will erase all kinds of imperfections.
Waterproof bronzer to bring freshness to the face
Are you enjoying a good golden tan this summer? So, forget about contouring and accentuate it with a little tan. Apply the waterproof product to the forehead line, cheekbones, nose and chin. This little trick will give you a very natural look, but on condition that you don't overdo it! Choose liquid bronzers with shiny particles that will give your face unparalleled radiance.

How to remove waterproof makeup?
When it comes to making small corrections during the makeup process, you have to be really quick because water resistant products dry too quickly. So keep cotton swabs and micellar water handy so you can react immediately.
Regarding makeup removal, waterproof makeup requires a two-phase makeup remover based on water and oil because it is in particular the oily texture that is responsible for its complete removal. Do not rub with the cotton, it is important to perform gentle movements.
