Waterproof mascara: what a love/hate relationship we have. Despite the fact that it stayed on through best friend’s wedding announcement, The Notebook, and various other tearful occasions, this is also the same reason why I hate it! Sometimes its staying power even lasts through makeup removers and face washes. The difficulty of getting it off rips off at least a few strands of my already barely-there eyelashes. Not only are waterproof mascaras hard to remove, most formulas are also clumpier than its non-waterproof alternative.
However on your wedding day, the inevitable tear-shed will happen. Even if you were able to fight your emotions and keep it all in, your outdoor summer wedding will have you sweating bullets. Who wants their mascara to be the weakest link when they’re standing at the alter in their beautiful summer wedding dresses? Here are a few waterproof mascaras that won’t wear out your lashes, and will stick with you throughout your whole wedding day.
- Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara
If you already have voluminous lashes and just need a waterproof formula that will add color intensity to your lashes while holding its curl firmly, this is the one for you. This mascara also dries super fast so you don’t have to worry about it getting elsewhere on your lids.
- Dior Diorshow Iconic Extreme Waterproof
Talk about a mascara that does it all. Not only does this mascara have a whole bunch of conditioning agents to sooth your lashes, it is also super buildable and hangs on to your lashes forever. This is a mascara that everyone can appreciate.
- Maybelline Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof Mascara
A steal at only $8, the tiny brush can catch every individual lash and even the tiniest of lashes in the inner corners of your eyes. This is also a great mascara for lower lashes because of the mini-brush feature.
- Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Macara
A cult classic! This one is my personal favorite because it adds volume and length without clumping. It won’t give you spider-leg lashes even if you layer multiple coats!
