When we lived in Hawaii we spent a lot of our time at the pool and the beach. I’d often go with a bare face (with sunscreen, of course) but when I wanted to look “pulled together” I perfected my water-friendly makeup routine. These are the same products I use when I run races or exercise and know I won’t get the chance to get cleaned up immediately and I want to look relatively pulled together (like if we’d drive to Waikiki and run and then spend the day there at the beach). They stay on well and don’t run into your eyes or down your face. These products have even held up during a hot marathon, so they definitely go the distance! While the makeup products they aren’t the cleanest products (honestly I haven’t even checked the ingredients), I like to live my life with an “everything in moderation” and balanced mentality and choose clean products when I can but don’t beat myself up if I choose something that’s not. I love Beautycounter makeup (I am a consultant after all) and that’s my favorite for normal days (my go-to routine is in this blog post), but if I’m going to get sweaty or go swimming I opt to use the products below. When I need to remove these products I use either the Beautycounter Countertime Cleansing Oil (takes makeup off so well and also helps address anti-aging concerns) or the Beautycounter Instant Eye Makeup Remover.

The Best Waterproof Makeup
Beautycounter Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 30– This mineral sunscreen stick from Beautycounter is a recent addition and I wish I’d bought it sooner! I use it on myself daily and also on my children.
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer– I have the brightening version that seems to have been discontinued (in No. 2) but this concealer that’s currently available looks the same. The concealer really stays put and provides nice coverage.
Glossier Could Paint in Beam– I started using Cloud Paint back when we lived in Kansas and Beam is my very favorite. It goes on really easily (it’s a liquid blush you apply with your fingers) and is buildable so it’s easy to avoid putting on too much. Beam gives a beautiful peachy and sun-kissed look.
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof in Black– This affordable mascara creates nice full lashes and stays put!
Benefit Ka-Brow! Cream Gel Brow Color with Brush in No. 3– I like to fill in my sparse brows with this brow gel. You use a little brush to apply the color that’s inside the little pot.
