Top 5 Waterproof/ Sweatproof Eye Make-Up Musts


 Even if you're not gonna be blasted in the face with a Super Soaker, or you might not be crying yourself a river today, or maybe not even doing the Insanity Workout and sweat is running into your eyes...
no matter what, your girl Kandee, has your back, or rather, YOUR EYES, now Ariel won't be the only one with pretty lashes while she swims.

I'm gonna share with you my TOP 5 waterproof and sweatproof eye make-up loves. And the best part...most of em' can all be picked up at your fav drugstore!

FIRST:
MY favorite WATERPROOF MASCARA
L'Oreal Double Extend Tubes Waterproof (seen above in the blue and white tube of goodness)
*I wear it in Black...they make a BROWN/BLACK for  those that don't want to be so dark-lashed.

why it's so great:
*I've tried all kinds of "waterproof" mascara over the years from Max Factor, Cover Girl, to Dior, and nothing has come close to the Double Extend Tubes Waterproof- it doesn't make your lashes so hard that they hurt your eyelid, it doesn't smell weird, and it actually is, super waterproof!
*I've cried wearing this- didn't come off.
*I've work-out with this on, so hard that sweat was running down my face- didn't come off.
*Swimming- don't even worry about it moving.
*I even had water thrown in my face (for a "waterproof" make-up tutorial I've needed to edit for months now) didn't melt off at all!

MY FAVORITE WATERPROOF EYE PENCILS:
These are not in order of my "favorite-ness"- just in the order I drew em' on my hand:
A. Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in ONYX
*why I love it:
*easy on the wallet and it works
*handy twist up pencil, so sharpening required

B. (same product, just different awesome color) Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in PEWTER
*why i love it:
*you can smudge it right after you apply it (before it "sets") and get a beautiful smokey-waterproof eye. This color looks smokey, sultry, and gorgy on every eye color too!

C. Urban Decay Glide-On 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion (black)
*why I love it:
*It is by far the creamiest application.
*It lasts wayyyy longer- even after you try to scrub it off with a scratchy paper towel (SEE THE TEST BELOW).
*It's really inky, dark, dark, black.
ALL THE EYELINER PASSED THE WATER FROM THE FAUCET TEST.....
This is what my hand looked like after I scrubbed it, super hard, with a paper towel, probably 10-15 times. The Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Liner in Perversion...was definitely had the most staying power!

NEXT...BEST WATERPROOF LIQUID LINER...
L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof Eyeliner in Black, but they make it in Brown also.
*why I love it:
*say you just want to hit the beach with a glam winged liner and lipgloss...you can do it and it won't sweat off while you tan or smudge off while you splash in the water.
*it doesn't flake off or come off in strips or chunks like other kinds can.

MUST MENTION (because I don't have any right now to photograph- I'm all out)
MAC Liquidlast Eyeliner
*why i love it:
*it is kinda like a semi-permanent tattoo..ha ha ha...It is even, really hard to get off, even when you're ready to take it off!  When I use it to do my "eye brow" dots...
sometimes, even after several "make-up remover" products, those babies are still on! ha ha ha

MY FAV WATERPROOF EYESHADOW
(this is my fav drugstore brand, I have other favs but this is great to save money so you can save your money or buy yourself a yummy frozen lemonade)
MAYBELLINE Eye Studio Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eyeshadow in "Tough as Taupe"
It come in lots of other fun and bright colors, but this color is just classicly beautiful for everyone!
*why I love it:
*it really lasts and goes on creamy and smooth. (I just blend it with my fingers, then you could apply your waterproof liner and mascara and you're good to go!)

BONUS:
If you need some waterproof eyebrows, for if you have hair loss or a scar in your eyebrows or just want your defined brows- just use a waterproof pencil in brown to fill in and define and it will last too!

So whether you're gonna be singing, "I'm on a boat"...or "I'm in a kiddie pool", or "I live where it's so humid I live with sweat running down my face", or "My summer job is sitting in a dunk tank"....I've got your back, or eye...

I can't speak for your hair, but at least now your face doesn't need to be scared of water....
super soakers and slip n' slides, your kandee

Kandee:
I have to commend your strength lady! And an awesome tip! I've been wanting to try the double extend tubes for quite a while. I am glad they make a waterproof formula.

Thank you for all that you do. Keep smiling because you are loved!
