No one likes smudgy mascara at the beach—at least not before Labor Day. We could, of course, just go bare-faced—but why go makeup-free when you can wear electric blue liner (à la Nadine Lustre) and highlighter? To ensure that you’re makeup doesn’t end up a sloppy mess like margarita you left out in the sun, here are our picks for waterproof makeup.
BROW WOW. For many Filipinas, beautiful brows are a must, even at the beach. WUNDERBROW (P1600) is the latest brow product to enter the game. This UK import uses PermafixGel Technology to create beautiful and long-lasting brows (and by long-lasting, we mean it will stay on for days). On clean brows, fill in the sparse area of your brows using the paintbrush and then blend using the accompanying spoolie applicator. The product comes in 5 colors, ranging from blonde to jet black.
LIP MAGIC. Who says you can’t wear red lipstick at the beach? Not one-time MEGA cover star Arci Muñoz, who proves that a bold lip looks striking while basking under the sun. Try CARGO Swimmables Longwear Matte Liquid Lipstick (P995) in Portofino, a vivid warm red lip color. Make sure to prep lips by using a lip scrub and slicking on a layer of balm.
SKIN IN. Want all eyes on you? Then slather on the highlighter. Shine like a diamond under the sun or by the waves. Try a MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint (P1450) in Lustrous White, Iridescent Copper Gold and Iridescent Warm Beige. These cream eye shadows can double as highlighters when sheered out. The extra sparkle in their formulas also help in creating a summer glow.
