Waterproof Your Makeup


places like Thailand Singapore and Brazil are sometimes so humid makeup can feel like it’s melting off your face so in this video I’m going to show you how to waterproof your makeup so let’s unleash your inner mermaid I spent the entire day in the pool testing this makeup look out and let me tell you it’s humidity and waterproof meaning you can jump in the water and your makeup will still be flawless first step to waterproofing your makeup prime your face I’m using benefit stay flawless 15-hour primer this will help control oil and the primer will help the makeup grab onto something so it stays on longer this is by far the most unique foundation I found this Kevyn Aucoin sensual silk enhancer not only covers everything I can think of but it’s potent a little goes a long way dab a little on your face because less is more you want to be selective in what you’re trying to conceal because the last thing you want is to cake up your face your skin still needs to breathe alright time for brows try and find a brow pencil that contains wax if you really need something that even Ariel use this makeup forever waterproof eye brow corrector that’s a long name use a brush to fill in any empty spaces and when it dries we’ll stay on foot and won’t budge wax-based brow products will stay on longer even with moisture and whatever brow product that you have left over you can use this as contour I’m going to run this along the sides of my nose to create an illusion of a taller nose cool now it’s time for I make up if you’re planning on wearing a lot of eyeshadow use an eye primer your eyeshadow will thank you later not only will this prevent creasing on the lids but your eyeshadow pigment can now grip onto your lids better if you’re going to use an eyeliner stick with one that has a waterproof formula waterproof pencils like Urban Decay Make Up For Ever and NYX contains wax based ingredients like Saracen and microcrystalline wax waxes are insoluble to water making it water resistant which is why a lot of waterproof eyeliners contain wax and if you’re looking for a vegan option look for an eyeliner that’s made out of synthetic wax waterproof gel or cream based eyeliner can double up as eye shadow all you need is a blending brush to buff it in place however if you prefer your powder eye makeup you want to make sure that your lids are primed waterproof liquid liners can usually outlast all other eyeliners this eyeliner that I’m using here was made in Japan and trust me they know a little somethin something about water provide liners as you can see my eyes are bloodshot red because I spent the entire day swimming in the pool testing out different makeup products to see which ones are better now if you don’t like using liquid eyeliner try coating this eyeliner sealer over your makeup this will seal and protect your eyeliner and prevent smudging and fading all right you guys know this step curl to prep your lashes and apply waterproof mascara a lot of waterproof mascaras contain wax which can help hold a curl longer and better I don’t know about you but I am ready for a water balloon fight and if you can’t say no to fake lashes I recommend using a waterproof lash adhesive one that’s odor and latex cream like this one by kiss just apply a thin strip on the top part of the lashes and place them as close to the lash line as possible I used to live in Florida and it was so humid you could practically drink the air which means we need our makeup to be bulletproof and from here just build up your lashes just wait for it to dry and you should be good to go all right so if you need some color on your cheeks look for one that can stand up to water like this cargo water-resistant blush don’t overdo it on blush because you don’t want to look like you’ve been cooked your face is going to get red anyways because of the Sun and if you’re looking for a more natural finish try Benetint lip and cheek stain you don’t need much just a little bit and dab on your cheeks quickly blend before it dries protect your lips with SPF lip balm or lip gloss I would avoid lip gloss if you’re soaking up in the Sun stick with mineral powder makeup because most of them are water-resistant but if you’re going to be by the pool or Beach don’t really need face powder because your skin should look dewy finally drumroll the last step a setting spray this is like a top coat on your face that is seal everything in perfect now your makeup is waterproof humidity proof hex practically bulletproof all right you guys enjoy the beach pool in humid weather hey at least it’s good for your skin and special thanks to Linden a professional mermaid yes that is a real occupation she glides through the water like a dolphin how friggin cool is that Linden is seriously
