In the summer, we often need our mascara to be a little bit more reliable. Whether it’s the heat that causes your usual mascara to run, or you’re searching for something that will withstand the emotions of wedding season, switching to a waterproof mascara for the summer is always a good idea.

Usually made with a type of silicone that creates a water-resistant formula, waterproof mascaras are far less prone to smudging, running and fading. Switching to waterproof doesn’t have to mean compromising on length or volume; we have picked out our favourites that will create fluttery, long lashes every time.

Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara

Designed specifically to stay put when you sweat, the Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascarawon’t budge until removed with an oil-based makeup remover. The award-winning formula fully coats your lashes from corner to corner with a jet-black pigment that lengthens and intensifies your natural hairs. Contrary to some beliefs about waterproof mascaras, the formula nourishes the lashes using 11 fruit extracts and helps to condition and boost collagen production to keep them long and strong naturally.

L’Oréal Paris Paradise Waterproof Mascara

If you’re looking to add drama, this is the mascara for you! The L’Oreal Paris Paradise Waterproof Mascara captures every single lash to add unmatchable impact to your lashes instantly. The flake-free formula is buildable, allowing you to go as bold as you want this summer for a fully defined eye look.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Volume On Demand Waterproof Mascara

Promising to stay in place for 24 hours, the Rimmel Scandaleyes Volume On Demand Waterproof Mascarais perfect for summer party season. Enriched with conditioning ingredients, the mascara fortifies lashes in a bold, black pigment that is suitable for sensitive eyes and won’t cause any irritation. The formula doesn’t clump and keeps your eyelashes soft and flexible, allowing you to add to them easily if you want to add more impact later in the day.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Offering the same volume and length as the original Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, the Waterproof Mascara is made using the brand’s bestselling formula with the added water-resistant properties. The hourglass shaped brush allows you to capture every single lash from the lid to tip, conditioning them with Porcelain Flower extract whilst adding length and thickening each lash.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara

The Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline is definitely on our list for being both dependable and creating drama. The mascara has a plumping effect on the lashes to deliver a fuller looking finish. Designed with a curved brush to fit your natural lash shape, the mascara grabs every hair, coating it in the liquid formula to leave them fully covered and extended.

Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara

Completely smudge-free, the Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara resists water, humidity and heat, making it the ideal eye-widening weapon for the summer. The specially developed brush evenly coats lashes, leaving them looking visibly thicker without any clumps or sticking.
