After you’ve spent a long time on your makeup, the last thing you want to see is any smudging, fading, or flaking. Nope, I don’t want to see it—except maybe at the end of the night when I’m heading home. Then I’ll give it a pass because it’s less makeup to take off when I’m washing my face before bed, right?
Now, I don’t think I need to tell you that making sure your makeup has major staying power depends on the products you’re using. Primers, setting sprays, and setting powders all come in handy. Formulas that are labeled “long-lasting” can help (if chosen wisely since labels can lie). And when in doubt, go waterproof.
Case in point: a waterproof eyeliner. Now, many of these can stand up to not only hours and hours of wear but also sweat and tears. When you’re wearing some of these formulas, you can walk outside into a full blast of humidity, and your eyeliner will stay put like it’s glued onto you. Are you convinced yet?
And because I know that many of us out there are budget-conscious (especially if you’re trying out a new formula for the first time), I looked up some of the best drugstore waterproof eyeliners on the market. Hint: You won’t have trouble finding the perfect one for yourself. Take a look at some of the best eyeliners below.
