Summa Soaka Series! – The 14 Best Waterproof Makeup Products & Brands – Face & Lips

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.

All products mentioned are listed below.

“Whey de lime” Fridays: The Makeup Show NYC 2017 Preview

wdlime_fridays_graphic

Ahhhhhhhh! Apart from Christmas, one of my favourite times of year is early May for The Makeup Show NYC.

the-makeup-show-nyc

I have written about it lots of times before. It is the largest makeup artist trade show in the US and many brands take the time to launch new products. But the thing that I am always most excited for are the educational classes. From learning about how to airbrush makeup to tackling social issues that are prevalent in the artistry industry. It is a great opportunity to learn from the absolute, very best artists, who have spent years honing their craft and ‘paying dues’.  There are over 75 brands being represented and some of my faves are Make Up For Ever, Temptu, Blackup Cosmetics.  It’s also a great place to check out smaller companies changing the beauty game such as Juvia’s Place, The Lip Bar, Danessa Myricks Beauty and Smith Cosmetics.

So that is pretty much the only thing that I am going to pay attention to this weekend. I need to plan out all the classes that I want to take…….and the brands that I *may* want to check out…

For more information, see The Makeup Show.

RECAP: The Makeup Show NYC 2016 in photos

the-makeup-show-nyc-2016

Another year, another amazing event! The Makeup Show NYC just ended a few weeks ago and what an event it was! I love going to this! This pro-only trade show is an amazing opportunity to meet other professionals in the makeup artistry industry as well as many of the brands that have been supporting professional artists for years.  There are a number of things that I loved about this event this year:

Things I loved

  1. The amazing educational classes – this is a wealth of information and it was a great event to learn about the current and upcoming trends – not just what is popular on YouTube, but what artist are doing in editorial, bridal and SFX.
  2. The focus on skincare – Skin is in! Without an amazing canvas/base, you won’t have an amazing finished product! Makeup does not cover everything.
  3. New and exciting product innovation and launches – Folks out there are really doing some incredible things with makeup and tools! The next few months will be super exciting, especially when it comes to mascaras…so many to try from Ardency Inn, tarte, Senna, Charlotte Tilbury etc! Just wait to see what MUFE has coming this summer!
  4. Embracing smaller brands – this is cool…there were a number of small entrepreneurial companies featured at TMS, who are doing their own thing to shake up the industry, proving that you don’t have to be a global conglomerate to make a difference, which leads me to my last point…
  5. The acknowledgement of the need or the necessity of the industry to fully embrace diversity – It is 2016 and many makeup artists still don’t carry around a kit catering to global skin tones and many companies still find it difficult to create properly balanced foundations for people of colour. Thanks to James Vincent, director of Artistry, for leading an amazing panel.  Also thanks to the organizers of TMS for bringing on so many, lesser known brands founded by people of colour! I was especially excited seeing The Lip Bar.  More on them in a later post!

Anyway, here are some photos of the artistry, the colour and the beauty of makeup.  As usual, the body painting was phenomenal!  Let me know what you think! I will be talking, in future posts, about some of the new goodies that I discovered while there…..get hyped!
