The 8 Best Waterproof Mascaras for Every Budget

Whether you’re spending the day at the beach, are attending an outdoor summer wedding, or just don’t want to worry about smears and smudges during a long day, there’s no denying that a waterproof mascara can be a truly invaluable part of your makeup routine. Thanks to higher levels of waxes and polymers (i.e. the ingredients responsible for keeping the mascara on your lashes), these are formulated to withstand water, sweat, tears, (and in some unfortunate circumstances, your kid’s tears) much better than their traditional counterparts. The one caveat? Be sure to use a dedicated eye makeup remover to take them off, since over-zealous scrubbing with just your plain old face cleanser can take a toll on delicate lashes. Ahead, the eight best stay-put, waterproof mascaras for every budget.
