Rainproof: The Best Waterproof Makeup

Just as you wouldn’t leave home at this time of year without an umbrella, you wouldn’t risk smudged mascara and a shiny complexion in rainy season. Forgo the need to pack your bag with makeup and use products that will last all day, whatever the weather.

In my job, I’m used to having to create makeup looks that will last all day, in all sorts of conditions, whether it’s under the glare of the spotlight on the red carpet, or in rain and winds on location at a shoot. And touching up isn’t always an option when the cameras are rolling, so using the best waterproof makeup products that can face the elements is essential. So, whether you’re looking for the best waterproof mascara to see you through the rainy months, or a long-lasting foundation that can withstand the storms, shop my pick of the best waterproof makeup and look gorgeous all day (whatever the weather).


Best Waterproof Makeup: My Picks

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Mascara
This is an essential in my kit, whether it’s raining or not. Curl lashes before applying and you’ll have voluminous, perfect lashes all day long, even in a downpour.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer
This waterproof concealer is extra long-wearing to last all day. It is great for touch-ups after you apply your foundation, or covering blemishes and dark circles.

Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation
Not only can this lightweight, ultra-buildable Dior foundation be used on face and body to create a flawless, even skin tone, it stays photo-ready in all conditions, meaning you’ll have perfect skin all day, whatever the weather.

Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner
If smudged eyeliner is your rainy weather nightmare, invest in this Milk Makeup long wear gel liner, which is super easy to apply, enriched with nourishing avocado oil, and will stay put all day.

Max Factor Velvet Mattes Lipstick
When it comes to long-lasting colour, this is one of the absolute best waterproof lipsticks. Delivering matte colour without drying lips out, apply over a lip liner for even more smudge-proof lip.
