There’s nothing like a bit of rain to ruin the makeup look you’ve put together! Whether you’re on a night out or it’s a day look you’ve put together, a downpour or a splash of rain can be a real pain. The real key to maintaining your makeup look in bad weather is the products you choose. The most important thing is to choose waterproof eyeliner, mascara and eyebrow color as these are the darkest and will make the most mess of your makeup if they get wet and run. Jet black tears streaming down your face are never ever a great look! As always, there are absolutely loads of price points to choose from – you can spend a little, or a lot to find the perfect waterproof essentials.
