Ask a Make-Up Artist: Your Summer Beauty Questions Answered

Q: I love wearing it in summer when I’m at the pool or beach but, is waterproof mascara bad for my eyelashes? I feel like I’m yanking them out whenever I remove it. — Mary Jane

A: Waterproof mascara isn’t bad for your eyelashes. Make sure to be gentle when you are removing it. Use an oil based eye make-up remover and use a cotton pad to gently soak your lashes and then glide the remover down to the tips of the lashes. I always like to rinse with water after.

A great eye makeup remover is Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Dual Action Eye Make-up Remover Oil-Free ($22.00). It works quickly to remove all make-up even waterproof, fragrance-free, and gentle on the eyes.

Depending on the look you are trying to achieve there are a few options for waterproof mascara to try. These are my favorites:

Beauty on a Budget: Maybelline-Define-A-Lash-Volume-Waterproof-Mascara ($7.49) Great for more length and separation with a soft definition. The wand is rubber bristled and can be applied easily.  This mascara will not clump. I use this mascara a lot for photo shoots and private clients.

Serious Drama: Lancome Definicils Waterproof Mascara ($27.00) Length, volume, separation, definition. This mascara does it all and won’t smudge. A rare trait is that the texture of your lashes when dry, will be soft.

The Mascara For Everyone: American Beauty Perfectly Waterproof Mascara ($14.00) You need just a few swipes of this formula for added length and volume that lasts all day and withstands water. If you haven’t heard of this brand it is sold exclusively at Kohl’s. This mascara adds drama without looking very dramatic like the Lancome mascara.
