The weekend’s almost here and the best way to wind down from an action-packed week is with a little beach-or-poolside R&R. Just because you’ll be near the water doesn’t mean you have to avoid making a few splashes because you don’t want runny makeup.

Most people believe the minute you are immersed in water, your makeup will take a turn for the worst, resulting in running mascara and spotty foundation! But with a little patience and research, I discovered I could indulge in some of my favorite everyday products without my face running when I’m near water.

There are a few tried-and-true quality waterproof products like a bronzer or light foundation, eyeliner, mascara, and lip stain that are tailor-made for fun in the sun.

Check out some of our favorites below:
