If you’re tired of trying products and not getting the results you need, then this is the article for you!

I think crayons are easier to apply. This crayon is silky, light, non-sticky and has a SPF15 built in. It’s waterproof and lasts up for 10 hours. Huffington Post did mention that the glossy sheen does wear off after about an hour (or eating) but the waterproof stain of colour stays on. Just the gloss wears off a little.

I need help finding waterproof eye makeup that stays. Have you got any recommendations?

I have the perfect products for you!

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Natural Eye Brow Pencil £17

This oil free pencil allows you to have the perfect eyebrows. It is a double ended pencil which has a grooming brush to help shape your brows. Tested in a full boxing workout class and it passed! Available in 4 colours – Brownette, Natural Beige, Natural In Black and Honey Blonde.

Smashbox Limitless Waterproof Liquid Liner Pen £17

Huffingtonpost really did put this through the test:

Not only does the tip make it incredibly easy to apply, it also somehow survived unscathed through a dip in the sea, snorkeling and getting splashed in the eyes by a rogue child. I’ve put it all down to witchcraft.

This must be good to survive all of that! It’s a waterproof liquid liner pen that is smooth and you can create the modern eye looks so easily. Available in 2 shades – Dark Brown and Black.

Christian Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara £24.50

This stay put waterproof mascara is ideal for the non-panda look! It also isn’t a nightmare removing it with a micellar water cleanser. When they tested this, it stayed on for an entire week and it didn’t smudge! Stay put in any circumstance! Available in 3 shades – Azure Blue, Black and Chestnut.

So there you go, all the waterproof and sweat proof makeup you need!
