7 Waterproof Beauty Products that Can Make It Through Anything

Is it hot out there or is it just us?! When the temperature rises (and rises ... and rises), it's inevitable to experience some makeup meltdown. Want to beat the heat? Enter these tried-and-true, budge-proof essentials. We put them to the test (spin class, crowded subways, dance parties, you name it!) to ensure that no matter how steamy things get, our liner, lipstick, and foundation stay put.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream

Eye shadow tends to crease and fade as lids get oily throughout the day. Add in humidity and sweat, and your flawlessly applied lids will be a distant memory come 6 p.m. Luckily, this waterproof cream shadow is packed with super opaque pigments that stay put -- even if you get thrown into a pool (yep, we learned the hard way)! And despite the rich color payoff, the formula is so blendable that application is a cinch.

Bare Minerals Locked and Coated Mascara Topcoat

Mascara is one of the first hot-mess casualties when it's steamy out. Instead of trading your go-to for a waterproof version, try this lash top coat. Just brush on a layer or two after your application to transform any mascara into a sweat- and splash-friendly formula.

Tarte Amazonian Waterproof Bronzer

The hairline and forehead are some of the sweatiest parts of our faces. So if you sweep bronzer there to get a faux-sunkissed glow, and then start to perspire in the actual sun, you may be left with a streaky situation. Luckily, this flattering bronzing powder is both matte (to hide shiny spots) and waterproof (to hold tight when things heat up).

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner

What's the point of painting on a perfectly flicked cat eye if it's not going to last? Lock in your masterpiece by using a formula that won't stray, like this one from Stila. Bonus: The marker-esque applicator makes lining a cinch!

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation

Kat Von D knows a thing or two about makeup and about locking things in place (because she's a tattoo artist!). So we weren't shocked that her satin-finish foundation stayed put from an early a.m. through last call. The mattifying finish is a plus because it keeps your skin shine-free.

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick

Waterproof lipstick, like this stay-put formula from NYX, isn't just important for summer months and tropical getaways -- it's also essential when you're going to be drinking cocktails or snacking on lots of treats. The same polymers that shrug off water and sweat will help keep your color intact as you sip and munch.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Waterproof Concealer

If you like to wear a little concealer to the beach or pool, this is for you! Not only is the formula water-resistant, it's also designed to keep your under-eye circles and blemishes covered for 24 hours. So if you pull an all-nighter at work or take a red-eye, you'll still be concealed in the a.m.
