The Best Waterproof Mascaras

A good waterproof mascara is a staple in any makeup obsessive’s bag. There’s nothing worse than coming out of the cinema after watching a tear-jerker with mascara streaks running down your face, or getting hit by a spontaneous burst of rain, only to look like a panda a few minutes later… If it’s one product that you need to be reliable and do what it says, it’s waterproof mascara.

These mascaras are sweat-proof, shower-proof, and budge-proof, so we have you (and your lashes) covered, no matter the situation.
