Waterproof Makeup That Works All Year Round


Summer might be over but that doesn’t mean you should stop using waterproof makeup. You may not be going to the beach and swimming as much as you did during July, but we still need protection from wet weather. Plus, a waterproof formula helps to stop make-up meltdowns. If you use a non-waterproof formula and shed a few tears after smelling someone’s too strong perfume, you will end up with black smears running down your face which is not a good look. To help keep your make-up looking fresh in rain or shine, add these waterproof formulas to your make-up bag: Makeup Revolution Amazing Curl Mascara This product gives you perfectly curled lashes that are long lasting. The formula boosts the curls whilst separating the lashes with the curved wand that gives the lashes an extra bit of ooopmh.

It is priced at £2.00
