Reader Question:Â Ever wish you could look like celebrity motherÂ Naomi Watts while strolling the beach after aÂ swim (without the help of sunglasses)? Willow, aÂ Makeover Momma, hates reapplying makeup every time she steps out of the pool,Â even though sheÂ swims frequentlyÂ with her toddler.
“I’d like to have a face on that isn’t going anywhere. I know waterproof mascara exists, but some sticks better than others…which is best? And what about foundation, cheeks, eyecolor, or eyeliner?”
Makeover Momma Answer: If you are a mother who swims with her toddler or simply wants makeup to stay put during work, try the following products for a stay put, simple face…
- Mascara: Cover Girl’s Curved Brush Waterproof Mascara will work as color and eyelash curler in one (and has beenÂ tested for many summers as ackward teenagers at the pool).
- Eyeliner:Â Women seem to swearÂ by L’oreal Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner, whichÂ was designed toÂ stay put during wet conditions (and even self sharpens!) Another favorite, Maybelline Unstopabble Smudge-Proof Waterproof Eye Liner,Â was designed specifically to stay put whether swimming or sweating.
- Foundation: Almay Moisture Tint Sports Formula is no longer available through the company (despite near cult-like status amongst consumers), but can be purchased from Amazon or websites like www.buymebeauty.com. It has a light sheer tint that is toted for staying power, an affordable price tag and SPF 6 for extra sun protection.
- Concealer: The simple Maybelline New York Corrector ConcealerÂ is affordable, easy to use and clings to your skin like a toddler to your leg.
