Punxsutawney Phil Predicts You'll Need Waterproof Makeup

Feb 3 2014 - 10:40am

In a cruel twist of fate, Punxsutawney Phil crawled out of his hole this weekend, saw his shadow, and predicted six more weeks of Winter [1] (damn groundhog!). And for a lot of us, that means snow, wind, rain, and plunging temperatures. Translation: serious beauty interference. We never thought we could feel such negativity toward a groundhog. And while many of us have our Winter beauty routine [2] down pat, how do we keep our makeup from slipping and sliding? This is where waterproof makeup comes into play.

Often manufactured with special waxes, polymers, or a certain type of dimethicone to lock pigments into place, just about every kind of makeup from brow enhancers to mascara to foundation has its waterproof counterpart. Check out a few below for some inspiration, including some remover options specifically made to dissolve these stay-put formulations.
