Makeup Wars picks our favorite waterproof makeup


Since Makeup Wars chose favorite waterproof products for this week’s challenge I decided to see what I could come up with to create a great looking waterproof face. The more I looked at my collection, the more I realized how many waterproof or at least water resistant products I have. Tarte and Make Up For Ever are especially great brands to consider if you are looking for waterproof.

For eyeshadow I’d start with one of the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream shadows. Given the name you know that these are going to be great when it comes to beating the heat. Of the shades I have one of my favorites is #2 which is called Steel. It shows up as a pretty light steel with shimmer. Along with #2 I’d use #16 which is described as a pinky beige shimmer. On my skin it shows up very pink.

For an eyeliner I’ll also choose one of the Make Up for Ever Aqua Liners. Those have gotten me through a lot of hot flashes and moist summer days. One of my favorites is #6 which is a dark navy iridescent shade.

For eyebrows (since I’m working on remembering to do my eyebrows more often) I’ve got Tarte’s emphasEYES waterproof Amazon clay brow mousse in medium brown.

Since I no longer buy waterproof mascaras after an unfortunate incident where I lost a lot of eyelashes, the perfect solution is Anastasia’s Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat. With Lash Genius you can use any mascara you like and top it with Lash Genius. It’s truly genius and it truly works.

The hardest part about doing a waterproof face is concealer and foundation. I have some longer wear foundations and supposedly products like Revlon Colorstay are supposed to last longer. ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup is the one I own but if I wear it more than once a week it makes me break out. Other waterproof face products I know about are Make Up For Ever Full Cover Extreme Camouflage Cream for concealer and Face & Body Liquid Makeup. I don’t have either of those though. Tarte has a waterproof bronzer that could be used too.

For blush I really want to use Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint. I bought it in Light Pink from their website in the fall but I can’t seem to find it on their website or any other. It really is waterproof but it’s not easy to use since it’s a cheek stain and it definitely stains. I have to work really fast when using it and it stains my finger. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t seem available to buy. But it’s perfect when you want something to last. It’s great too as a starter color in case you have blush fading problems. UPDATE: This cheek tint is available on the Sale page at Tarte for only $15. Thanks to a reader for updating me on this.

Another Tarte alternative though are their original Cheek Stains in the wide tube. They aren’t as long lasting but they do last well. My favorite one is the one they came out with for their anniversary called TEN.

Make Up For Ever has again come to my rescue with the incredible Aqua Rouge lip color. I have this in #15 Pink and it’s going to last on those days I need that waterproof addition. This two sided lip stain has the color on one end and the shiny gloss on the other.

While these are the choices I’ve made I think you could easily just go through the tarte and Make Up For Ever websites to find a lot of choices. I’d make a bet that the other Makeup Wars bloggers have done just that. To find out for sure, click on their icons and revel in their choices. — Marcia

  1. More MUFE Aqua love! I am so not surprised. It was hard for me not to put them on my list,

  2. How did I not know that tarte had a waterproof brow mousse? I must have it!

  3. So, I love MUFE but omg I want that Tarte Cheek Tint! Lovely choices!

  4. I didn’t know Tarte had a waterproof mousse for brows!?!?!

  5. That tarte cheek tint reminds me of the Daniel Sandler Watercolours blush. I really should get on the stain train more, for sure.

  6. Great choices, Marcia! My first pick would definitely be the MUFE Aqua Creams!

  7. I forgot about Lash Genius, love that stuff. Great choices!

  8. I love Makeup Wars. I always am glad to see what your topic is and then what everyone chose. I guess it’s time for some Make Up For Evet shopping with the weather changing to hot and humid. Thanks for the ideas.

  9. I love your choices! I need to check out that tarte brow mousse.

    Thanks @Phyrra. I got the tarte brow mousse in a kit. I didn’t even look to see if it was for sale separately.

  11. beautyin says:

    Thanks so much @Nancy. For summer MUFE is pretty amazing. It’s gotten me through many hot flashes too.

  12. I don’t own any of those makeup forever shadows That needs to change pronto!

  13. Looks like we almost all agree on MUFE and Tarte! Great picks!

  14. beautyin says:

    @Krystle, if you’ve been reading the rest of Makeup Wars then you will soon have some MUFE shadows – they are perfect for summer especially.

  15. Great choices! I need to get more Tarte items.

  16. What a nice assortment of Aqua Creams! MUFE really leads the pack with waterproof products! :) I must try more tarte!!!

  17. I’ve been afraid of the Aqua Creams in the past (they keep sending me BRIGHT yellow. Why??) but that steel is so pretty! I could definitely wear that!

  18. beautyin says:

    @Pammy – I have a few more Aqua Creams from MUFE that I bought but they went missing. I need these in the summer especially! I wrote to tarte and told them to bring back some of their discontinued waterproof products. I doubt they’ll listen though.

  19. beautyin says:

    @Carleen, tarte knows waterproof. There are so many great products from them too.

  20. beautyin says:

    @Nancy, I knew that the War would be filled with MUFE and Tarte. They know their stuff!

  21. beautyin says:

    @Paula, I’d love to get my hands on those Daniel Sandler. I wish they were easily available.

  22. Brow mousse?! I never knew about this! This would be great for the summer with beaches and pools!

  23. Bonnie C. says:

    Ooh, I like your MUFE eyes! :-) I’ve always wanted to try those products.

    Thanks for this post!

  24. beautyin says:

    Thanks @Bonnie C. I have another beauty from MUFE I’ll be reviewing soon.

  25. How could I have missed the Tarte brow mousse? Gotta have their cheek tint, too…LOVELY.
