Pool and Ocean-Proof Makeup for the End of Summer

Benedict Brink

“I use this invisible topcoat over my regular mascara before jumping in the pool (or stepping outside on a steamy day) and voila! It stays perfectly put.” — Sarah Leon, Digital Editorial Director BareMinerals Locked & Coated Waterproof Lash Topcoat, $12,

“This lightweight BB cream is my all time favorite because it always leaves my skin super moisturized all while covering my minor imperfections. It also provides me with sun protection and stays on in the sea.” — Chrystin Bunion, Executive Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief Burberry Fresh Glow B.B. Cream, $44,

“I’ve never been a fan of waterproof mascara because I feel like it always damages my eyelashes by the end of summer, but I feel somewhat naked without makeup (eyeliner or mascara) on my eyes. This liquid eyeliner is extremely waterproof and adds the perfect accent of color for a day at the beach.” — Sam Andriano, Social Media Manager Makeup Forever Aqua Eyeliner, $23,

“I’ve been devoted to this rose-tinted cheek and lip stain for years for its natural flush. The color lasts even through a sweaty 10-mile hike!” — Kristin Auble, Research Editor Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, $30,

“I’ve been using the same mascara since high school — on a hot tip from my mum — and it hasn’t failed me yet.” Katherine Cusumano, Web Producer Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Waterproof Mascara, $27.50,

“I love Nars tinted moisturizer for summer beach days. It provides just the right amount of coverage and has SPF.” — Kristin Tice Studeman, Contributing Editor Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, $44,

“Long lasting and waterproof are two words I want to hear when it comes to summer makeup. This eyeliner is user friendly and glides on like a breeze.” — Sharlyn Pierre, Researcher Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, $20,

“I have been loving the Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation in Au Naturel. I don’t think it is advertised as waterproof, but it stays on even during ocean swims.” — Kelly Bales, Digital Content Development Director Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation, $20,

“I love Arbonne mascara! It’s the only mascara I’ve ever used that doesn’t sting my eyes or clump. And even though it’s waterproof, it’s easier to remove at the end of the day than a lot of other brands.” — Roseann Marulli, Associate Managing Editor Arbonne It’s A Long Story Mascara, $38,

“As demonstrated by the crying princess on the packaging, this stuff does not budge. This Japanese liquid eyeliner keeps my wings sharp through high humidity, a quick swim or watching the first 10 minutes of Up.” — Minha Khan, Associate Photo Editor Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner, $13,

“This setting powder actually repels water, summer showers included. If only it worked on clothes too.” — Mia Adorante, Associate Beauty Editor Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder, $8,
