I rounded up a few of my favorite waterproof products, unbeatable in their staying power.  I always use them on brides -- so they can look beautiful from the ceremony to the pictures and through the reception!

Here are my picks!

Jouer Comsetics Luminizing Moisture Tint: I discovered this fabulous tinted moisturizer last month via my beauty sample subscription and (without sounding completely dramatic) I simply can’t live without it now. It is water resistant, oil free, hypoallergenic, fragrance free and simply looks amazing on the skin. It also offers great coverage and lasts all day. I can’t tell you how many compliments my skin has received since using this product. $38.00

Makeup Forever Aqua Cream Color in Fresh Pink: The Aqua Cream is highly pigmented, so a little goes a very long way.  It also will not will not smudge even under the most extreme conditions, so bring on the heat, rain, wind…whatever. You can apply it with either your fingers to the apples of your cheeks, or with a brush designed for creams. This is also a great color to use as an eye shadow - so you can make this a double purpose item. $23.00

Makeup Forever Aqua Cream Shadows: Finding a waterproof eye shadow that doesn't crease or smudge was tough to do!  Good thing I discovered these amazing eye shadow pots. Because they're a cream, they are extremely blendable.  But because they're waterproof, once they set, they are set and are there to stay. So I recommend starting with a little and make sure to blend really well with either your fingers or a brush that works with cream (usually a synthetic blend). $23.00

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner: Eyeliner that gets under your eyes and onto your eyelids can be a girl’s worst nightmare. (Ok, maybe I'm a tiny bit dramatic.)  That's why I'm always on the lookout or eyeliner that will stay put. I have actually put these to the test by running them under water and then attempting to smudge them -- only to discover that they really DO stay put!  $19.00

Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara:  This is a must have for anyone who can appreciate good waterproof mascara. It has Microcrystalline wax that works with the dense mascara wand to increase length and volume -- all while never smudging on your under eyes and eyelids. Plus it’s easy to take off at the end of the day with a makeup remover. $20.00

Makeup Forever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner: This is a waterproof and long wearing lip liner made with Vitamin E and Jojoba wax to make it glide easily on your lips. I use this to base my entire lip and then top with either a lipstick or gloss like $18.00

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss: If you are going to base your entire lip with a waterproof liner like I suggest, using a gloss on top --  like this moisturizing lip gloss from Jouer --  is a good idea. It is not sticky and is made with shea butter and jojoba oil.  Plus, gloss doesn’t break down easily in water. $20.00
