Katie’s Takeover begins in 3…2…1!
Hey beautiful, as already mentioned I’m Katie and I talk about all things beauty over on From My Vanity! I’ve also been into posting pretty Instagram makeup pictures and repinning everything beautiful on Pinterest lately. So if you like either…follow me! :-D But, okay, let’s get back on track. We’re talking about my favorite waterproof makeup that is perfect for summer!
Alright, this isn’t going to be a tutorial, but more of a teaching and informative post. Anna and I didn’t want to share a full-face of makeup that holds up to water, but instead show the type of makeup that we would wear to the beach and how bulletproof our favorites are! :-)
And yes…this is everything that I would wear if I were going to the beach. If you take a trip through some of my tutorials…you’ll know I’m all about that wing and doing my eyes, so even though I’m just going to the beach, my eyes must always be glam’d up. Must!
Alright, face first! My go-to primer is the No7 Beautifully Matte Makeup Base. Put this baby on and it almost doesn’t matter what foundation you use, it’ll stay matte and beautiful all day! The foundation I use on the days I need it to hold up no matter what (including water!) gets thrown at it is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover foundation. The only way it’s coming off is if you rub your face very hard or you use a makeup remover. Because this Mama is still getting up for midnight feedings, I feel better when my panda eyes are concealed (even if I’m just going to the pool!) and I’ve been digging the new Too Faced Born This Way Concealer. It holds up like a champ and doesn’t crease at all when I use the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder to set. I finished off with a touch of Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Fearless. With all of these products combined…my face makeup is basically bulletproof!
For the eyes I made sure to prep with Smashbox’s 24 Hour Photo Finish eyeshadow primer. This stuff is awesome and my oily eyes never crease! I used the ELF Mad for Matte eyeshadow palette to warm up my crease and darken the outer corner slightly, but the real gem here was the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush. This stuff is awesome to use if you need them to hold up under water. Because they do! I finished it up with my all-time favorite Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner. The. Best. EVER. I finished it off with Maybelline Volum’ Express the Falsies mascara. This stuff is hard to remover with eye makeup remover and face oils. :-P
For the lips…this is where I go super simple for a day at the beach or near a pool. I just use a lip balm with SPF to protect my lips from the sun. This Kaplan MD Lip 20 Balm is new to me, but is pretty fantastic!
And there you have it! My tried-and-true favorites when it comes to waterproof makeup. This look won’t budge at all. I am not a swimmer, so don’t know how it will do exposed to a lot of chlorine. But just floating in the pool or splashing in the ocean, it’s the best waterproof makeup I own! The only thing that’s removing this stuff (well….besides the lip balm, of course!) is an oil-based makeup remover and a whole lot of patience! :-P
Thanks for reading, it’s so great to ‘meet’ all of you! :-D Make sure you check out Anna’s summer waterproof makeup post on my blog, and also follow me on your favorite social media channel (just search “LadyKaty92”).
