I don’t want to sound like a broken record talking about the heat again, but ladies it’s steamy out there. The kind of heat and humidity that causes you to feel as though you’re melting the second you step outside the door, not to mention all the dips in the pool that are makeup’s nemesis!
Fortunately, there are some amazing products on the market to combat the water’s melting effects on your makeup!
(Click the photos to shop!)
1: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Honestly, these are the ONLY eye pencil that I will ever use. They are buttery smooth, blend into smokey perfection, and do not budge once applied- even if you end up diving into a pool or the humidity is 90%. This aqua shade is super summery, and looks amazing as a straight uber modern line along your bottom lashes.
2: Covergirl Lash Blast
Have you ever used a waterproof mascara that just won’t dry, or when it gets wet it clumps in an icky way? This mascara is the complete opposite! It sets perfectly and doesn’t get clumpy or flakey.
3: Benefit Posietint
Not only is this product effective, it’s fun to use! Super blendable, Posietint is fantastic on your cheeks, lips, and even to add a bit of twinkle and shine on your eyes. If your traveling at all this summer, definitely bring it along for easy breezy summer makeup.
4: Makeup Forever Pro-Bronze Fusion
I’m a bronzer gal forever! I love how it warms up your skin, and just gives a healthy glow. There are two reasons I am obsessed with this product:
1: The unique texture, tt’s like a gel cream that applies as easily and blendable as a powder.
2: It comes in six shades! So many bronzers come in so few shades, so I love that this has a shade for everyone.
When applied to your cheekbones and temples it will last all day with no smudging, melting, or budging!
5: Australian Gold Sunscreen
We all know how important sunscreen is when your out in the sun! I love the scent of this one and the waterproof factor means it’s perfect for the pool or hiking.
6: tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer
Some days, we all need a little concealer even if you are just going to the beach or boating. This concealer is perfectly blendable and provides great coverage for under eye circles or blemishes. It’ll take you from beach to a night out without having to touch up!
Happy Monday babes! Can you believe it’s August already? Summer is flying by. I hope you each start your week off strong, and it is amazing.
PS: I have some amazing looks and content coming up over the next few weeks! I’d love for you to subscribe to follow along on the journey and not miss out on anything. Check it out in the upper right hand corner!

I’m so jumping on the bandwagon with these water proof products. I’d love to take a dip in the pool and come out looking like I just put on makeup. Lol. Thanks for sharing these amazing products. I need them in my life! On another note, thank you for reaching out to me during a difficult time. It will not be forgotten. Xoxo
Right? It’s always good to know it’s staying put no matter what! You’re so welcome babe, I’m always here if you need to vent or talk. Lots of hugs, Kait
Ohhh…I love this series and all the makeup suggested. I have been looking to invest in a good eyeliner and I will definitely be checking out urban decay!
Thank you so much! I love to hear positive feedback like this. Hugs, Kait
Such great ideas! It is SO hot here, so I might have to try some of these out!
SO hot! You won’t regret any of them for sure. Hugs, Kait
I have been wanting to try the amazon clay concealer! Thanks for sharing girlie.
You definitely should! It’s a wonderful product. Hugs, Kait
You must live in Chicago like we do talking about this heat stroke weather! But just wanted to say LOL at the meltprove! Love it, what an awesome read 🙂
I’m actually in DC, but I’m sure that this weather is hitting everywhere in the States! Thank you so much love! Hugs, Kait
Okay, the urban decay pencil and Makeup Forever Bronzer are on my list to get Asap!!! I’ve been needing a good bronzer. Thanks for sharing.
Both are so amazingggg! You will love them babe. Hugs, Kait
I had no idea that there was waterproof concealer! I can not live without my concealer and always hated it when it would come off in the water. I need to get to the store and try this 🙂
It would be so perfect for you! And there are so many different shades available as well. Hugs, Kait
I’m a bronzer forever girl too! I’ll totally have to try this one out. I’ve literally been wearing NOTHING on my face except an oil-free moisturizer the last few weeks because I’m grossed out by how sweaty I’m getting…not sure if smeared makeup or my bare face is worse!? 😉 Great roundup girlie!
I’ve been doing brows and bronzer! Anything else feels like way too much. Not only are we shopping soulmates, our makeup tastes are the same! We really need a shopping trip together. Hugs, Kait
The Dior Diorshow waterproof mascara is one of the best I’ve ever tried. It lasted a pool party, than an all night party in Las Vegas, I basically passed out on the bed and woke up the next day with perfect lashes still… Very impressing!
