10 best Waterproof Mascaras
Long hot days might be great for our mood, but not so much for our makeup. When it comes to your lashes you need a little extra back-up. Hot commutes, long days and holidays by the beach and the pool call for a waterproof mascara with serious staying power.
There's plenty of formulas out there, but we've tried and tested the most popular to find the ones that promise not to flake, run and smudge, even when they're up against your warm weather routine.
Say bye bye panda eyes and hello to defined, luscious lashes with our pick of the 10 best waterproof mascaras. You can thank us later.
