We are over halfway through summer, and things are getting real. Gone are the great days of sunny skies and beautiful breezes – hello to the heat, humidity, and sweat of August. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but my makeup routine is more hesitant to feel overjoyed about the constant sweating, wiping, and melting that occurs on a daily basis. Nothing irks me more than leaving my apartment looking one way and entering the office looking like I got pushed into a pool before I’ve had my coffee. I need products that will get me to and fro, and keep me looking my best throughout all of my summer excursions.
So I’ve decided to go on a hunt for the best waterproof eye products. I’m sure some of these are already in your makeup bags while others are products that you haven’t heard of, but, after reading, you’ll have to make a trip to your local Sephora or Target to get your hands on. Here are the top 10 best waterproof eye products out there.
