Sometimes when you flip over to the local news channel, you'll hear the familiar words, "We're live from...," and the reporter is standing there being pelted by hail or holding an umbrella in a hurricane — all while remaining calm, cool, and collected in front of the camera.
While some people might wonder how they're spouting off facts with flooding waters up to their ankles or 90 mph winds hitting their face, as beauty editors we had another thought: How on earth does their makeup stay in place? Apparently, these reporters have figured out which mascaras won't smudge and the concealers that stay put, no matter the environmental conditions, because they always look put together on the scene.
Ahead, six reporters from across the country share the makeup products that can weather a torrential downpour, a scorching heat wave, or even freezing temperatures on a football field. Get ready to take notes.
