Like many, we typically wear less makeup in the summer. But, even on our most fresh-faced days, you can bet we're sporting at least a coat (or three) of mascara. As such, formulation is of the utmost importance — nothing ruins our warm-weather, devil-may-care vibe more than mysterious black streaks running down our cheeks.
So, where does a beach-loving, slightly sweaty (thanks, humidity) girl turn? Waterproof mascara, of course. And, not just any waterproof mascara — one that doesn't sacrifice length, volume, or overall oomph for the sake of an H2O-friendly product.
In celebration of the warm days to come, we've rounded up nine such mascaras. Click through to see our favorite waterproof, sweat-proof, and, basically, summer-proof picks.
