Sephora

This is one of the very best eyeliners for waterproof long lasting staying power. The creamy texture creates a "no pull" effect, meaning that you don't have to pull the skin around the eye to get it to apply easier, nor press hard at all for the pencil to glide on. One thing to remember when using waterproof eyeliner is to always remove it thoroughly after each use. There are a few ways you can do this. First, wipe off all makeup with a makeup removing wipe, then apply an oil-based eye makeup remover on a cotton pad and soak the eye area for 20 seconds before lightly rubbing off the excess makeup. This will ensure your eyes don't get irritated overnight from makeup you weren't able to remove.  More »

Anastasia Beverly Hills

This eye base comes in different colors and is a smudge free water resistant formula that can be worn alone, or underneath eyeshadow. All you need to do is apply it to the lid with an eye brush or your finger, and leave it as-is if you're happy with the tone or blend eyeshadow on top, a great base for smoky eye looks that tend to utilize more than one eye shadow. You can also use the darker colors as an eyeliner, by dipping an eyeliner brush in the pot and creating a thin or thick liner look depending on what you're looking to accomplish. Try pairing it with this gorgeous eyeshadow palette for jewel-toned smoky eye looks! More »

Sephora

This oil-free and waterproof concealer gives a matte finish and is perfect for anywhere on the face, especially under the eyes. When using waterproof cream concealers, it's imperative to remember that a little bit goes a long way, so you really don't need to apply a lot for great results. The best way to apply waterproof concealer is after eye cream, very lightly with a slight tap of your finger. You can gauge how much you'll need by starting out small and then building the coverage to your liking, and you can blend with a foundation brush for a smooth finish. Have an annoying blemish? Apply whatever foundation you use first on the skin, then lightly tap the concealer on top to make sure it fully covers the breakout. Applying concealer after foundation is always best practice as it will last much longer that way.  More »

Urban Decay

This waterproof long wear foundation is completely oil free and matte, and a little bit is all you need for ultimate coverage. You can use one pump for the entire face, or less if you want, and it's best applied with a foundation brush or Beauty Blender sponge. Before applying, make sure you've moisturized the skin and the skincare has dried, then you can move forward with applying face primer if you want. Start by blending around the noise area with a brush and then move outward to the rest of the face. More »

MAKE UP FOR EVER

This volumizing mascara creates a thick lash that is full and lush for every day makeup looks along with dramatic ones, too. The brush enables each lash to get the proper coating of mascara, and the formula contains a microdefining wax complex which gives the highest amount of black pigment to ensure there's no lash left behind. Curl your lashes 2-3 times first, then start at the base and wiggle your way up, applying two coats for the ultimate eyelash envy.  More »
