How Waterproof Makeup Works

Punxsutawney Phil Predicts You'll Need Waterproof Makeup

In a cruel twist of fate, Punxsutawney Phil crawled out of his hole this weekend, saw his shadow, and predicted six more weeks of Winter (damn groundhog!). And for a lot of us, that means snow, wind, rain, and plunging temperatures. Translation: serious beauty interference. We never thought we could feel such negativity toward a groundhog. And while many of us have our Winter beauty routine down pat, how do we keep our makeup from slipping and sliding? This is where waterproof makeup comes into play.

Often manufactured with special waxes, polymers, or a certain type of dimethicone to lock pigments into place, just about every kind of makeup from brow enhancers to mascara to foundation has its waterproof counterpart. Check out a few below for some inspiration, including some remover options specifically made to dissolve these stay-put formulations.

This stuff makes me break out like crazy, although sometimes I really wish I could wear a stay-put concealer at the beach.
