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.

Bridal Makeup: Urban Bride

Hi guys!

So bridal season is just around the corner and Urban Decay has come out with a survival kit for that big day called the Urban Bride kit.

Urban Bride

Filled with essentials for keeping a bride’s makeup looking fresh throughout the tears, the pictures, the weather, anything! Also great for bridesmaids and other members of the bridal party.  Wrapped in beautiful hand-drawn packaging, this would also make a great gift!

The kit contains:

  • Razor Sharp Ultra-Definition Finishing Powder – (3.75 g mini) diffuses lines for a flawless airbrushed look, and the translucent shade suits all skin tones. The photographer and the DJ can flash their brightest lights her way because she’ll still look AMAZING.
  • Eyeshadow Primer Potion – (Full Size) ensures her eyeshadow stays vibrant, true and CREASE-FREE throughout the ceremony, pictures, dancing and well-after her garter comes off.
  • Supercurl Curling Mascara – boosts, separates and conditions lashes, while its super sculpting polymers hold the curl. Even if she throws a tirade at some point, no one will be able to hate her with those lashes.
  • Lip Junkie Lip Gloss in Midnight Cowboy – (Travel Size 3.6 ml) gives her all the shine she wants without any tacky stickiness. This soft, cushiony-textured gloss endures, and the sheer nude sparkle of Midnight Cowboy can be worn alone or over any shade of lipstick.
  • All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray – (15 ml spray bottle; perfect for her purse!) is a weightless mist that sets makeup for 16 hours. It utilizes temperature control technology to prevent makeup from melting off when it’s hot and humid outside or from becoming dehydrated when it’s cold and dry.
  • Marshmallow Sparkling Lickable Body Powder – (Travel Size 10g) a glistening, edible body powder to highlight her shoulders and décolletage beautifully, as well as treat her other half to a little dessert too!

LOTD: Diwali Indian inspired makeup look!

Diwali LOTD post graphic

Hey!

I’ve wanted to do an Indian-inspired look for a long time now.  Growing up in Trinidad & Tobago, I was accustomed celebrating customs and religious beliefs of the different ethnic groups.  Trinis would not bat an eyelid at attending Eid events or going over by your neighbor to parang dey house for Christmas.   We have accepted and celebrated each others cultures and food, becoming a very multi-ethnic society.  

I bought the November 2010 Vogue India issue with Priyanka Chopra on the cover and fell in love with this look!

  As a matter of fact, I fell in love with the entire Sari issue.  Such vivid colours and opulence!!! Something that I don’t usually see reading US magazines.  I occasionally will buy an international magazine for a different kind of inspiration.   In this issue, for  the traditional Hindu ceremony, the bride wore a stunning ruby red and gold sari paired with  smokey red and black eye makeup with deep red lips!! This look will also be great for a Divali celebration, lighting deyas and eating your favourite mithai. 

Here’s my version.
