Yesterday I took my kids to Roaring Springs Waterpark in Meridian, ID. Now, I don’t typically wear a bunch of makeup when I go to a waterpark, but I figured it would be a great place to try out some of the “water-resistant” and waterproof makeup I’ve been looking at lately. Not a very scientific experiment, I suppose, but if this stuff can withstand 5 hours of face-first waterslides, then it’s pretty darn good!
Of course, not every girl feels compelled to wear makeup at the pool, the beach, the waterpark… But for those who do, or who want just a little step above the complete “natural look,” I hope you find this helpful!
Here is my Before picture:
I used the following products:
Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in YDK (not pictured)
Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes blue eyeliner
L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade (not pictured)
Tarte Clean Slate Makeup Primer
Youngblood Pressed Powder Foundation
Virginn Pure Mineral Makeup Flawless Finish Powder (a favorite of mine!)
Make Up Forever Fist Fix makeup setting spray
MAC Lip Pencil, Plum
Natural Lip Gloss
Here is my After picture (yup, curly hair, ha ha!):
So I definitely had to re-do the lipliner and gloss, but that’s probably more the pizza’s fault than the makeup’s. Everything else stood up remarkably well! The L’oreal mascara wasn’t perfect, maybe a 6 out of 10 stars, but everything else impressed my socks off. A young lady in a line for one of the slides complimented my “glittery eyes,” and asked how in the world I kept it from washing off. Score for Urban Decay!
My favorite thing was the Anastasia eyebrow stuff. Wow, it didn’t budge, even the slightest! 10 out of 10 stars, for sure. The foundation, blush, and powder faded somewhat, but they stayed put enough to 1) act as a natural sunscreen, and 2) smooth out my uneven skin. Love!
