Makeup in the summer needs to be waterproof. While makeup is great for photos, it’s difficult because with travel, anything can happen. Maybe someone is sweating more than usual because of all the miles they’re trekking or maybe a group comes across a cliff and jumps into the ocean. No matter what happens, travel can be unpredictable. For those unpredictable moments, the best thing is to use waterproof makeup and make sure it’s truly waterproof before committing to using it on your travels.

For those who wear eyeliner, if it’s not waterproof the eyeliner can either disappear in a few hours or smudge around the eye and leave users with racoon eyes. Both options are not desirable for someone who wants makeup to last during any situation. For a good eyeliner that will stay on all day, no matter what, choose this Long-Lasting Eye Liner from the Sephora Collection. It’s only $12 and worth every dollar. It’s not too wet so it goes on easy and will stay on all day. This eyeliner is perfect to put on in the morning and then go about your day.

Mascara also needs to be waterproof for travelers because if it’s not, the mascara will drip off the eyelashes and leave user’s faces with black marks around the eye. Running mascara is not a good look and will mess up photos for the day. Besides being waterproof, users will also want mascara that doesn’t smudge or clump. For this, use the Shu Uemura Ultimate Natural Mascara. This mascara is one of the best on the market and won’t clump, flake or run.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
