Welcome to Part 2 of my #SummaSoaka Series! This time, I’ll be looking at waterproof makeup options for face and lips – you know foundation, blush etc. My last post focused on waterproof makeup for eyes. If you missed it, here’s the post 🙂
Again looking at brands that specifically offer waterproof or water-resistant makeup. Also, there are a lot of longwear products available now, especially for lips, but this does not necessarily mean that they are also waterproof.
So here’s my list of readily available waterproof makeup products for face and lips.
Welcome to the first installment of the “Summa Soaka” Series! Here, the focus is waterproof makeup! Pretty much every beauty brand has at least one waterproof or water resistant product, which is usually a mascara. The next upcoming posts will highlight brands that do much more that that. Some of these lines have entire collections dedicated to waterproof makeup. These options are great for brides, those who live in hot and humid weather or if you are going to Carnival in Trinidad or Brazil!
In this post, I will discuss the brands that offer the best waterproof eye products. Check out the video and all products mentioned are listed below.

In one of my more recent videos, I wore a very simple, soft smokey eye. The smokey eye. One of the, maybe the most popularly requested eye look. It evokes a certain mysteriousness and sexiness. It can take many forms, use a variety of colours, not just black. This one is going to be simple and slightly smokey. A rose gold inspired, summer smokey eye makeup tutorial. Great for daytime, when you want just a little sumthin sumthin! It also works as a summertime look when you don’t want so much intensity. I used neutral colours with golds, but you can greens, navys, purple, be creative!
There are tons of reviews and articles online about makeup application. What products to use, what brushes to buy, how to apply it. But what are you to do when you have come home, exhausted and need to take that makeup off? What do we use? Makeup removal should be your first step of your skincare routine. That leftover foundation will block or affect the efficacy of any serum, hydrator, antioxidant that you use. Nowadays, in the US, folks are using more and more long wearing, richly pigmented, heavy duty or waterproof makeup and sometimes your regular cleanser just doesn’t cut it. I like to get rid of that first layer of product so that my cleansers would be more effective and deep cleaning. So in this post, I will be discussing 4 different types of makeup removers. I even include an extra makeup removal tip! So that is really 5 ways to remove your makeup.
So this post and video will only cover removal methods for regular consumer makeup products. Special effects, theatrical and other alcohol/silicone based makeup are excluded.

These do a great job in breaking down pigments, long wearing makeup and even sunscreen. Does this without drying the skin and can be used on all skin types.
I have a love-hate thing with Rihanna. I still don’t think she has a great voice, but her songwriters? Boss! And I love her take no prisoners attitude. She lives her life on her own terms and I can roll with that! She recently appears in a new hit, in collaboration with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller. DJ Khaled sampled a portion of the song ‘Maria Maria’ by Carlos Santana. But RiRi and crew flipped it, Caribbeanised it and made it fresh again. The video is fire! Rihanna’s makeup is fire! Reminds me a lot of a few of her other videos featuring Jamaican/Caribbean dancehall scenes. It took me a long time to figure out what she was saying – ‘Wha Wha Wha Tho’ – that’s what I heard.
This post is about one of her hottest looks.
The one with her wearing that sexy emerald green see-through ruffled dress, turquoise eyes and a red lip. This is an example doing a bold eye and a bold lip with much success. Don’t make the look too complicated or involved.
I had fun with this look. I used a mix of drugstore and more expensive makeup. And of course there is a video with the exact steps!
Look at that highlight from SonjdraDeluxe & Melanie Mills Hollywood! **Peach Deluxe**
