If you’re headed out on a rainy day, even walking to your car under an umbrella can become hazardous with sideways rain! So I have a little section of my makeup drawer designated with these five must-have waterproof + water-resistant items that I can’t live without:

  1. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. It’s water resistant + mineral based and creates an oil-resistant barrier between your skin and makeup so the foundation has a better surface to adhere to. Eye + lip primers are great too, but I don’t want you spending more money than you should and honestly, you can use this primer on your eyelids + lips as well.
  2. Dior DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation. It’s as close to airbrushing as you can get without an airbrush machine and won’t move until you wash it off. It’s what I use on jobs to cover tattoos + bruises as well because it covers everything in one spray, is luminous and not cakey, and lasts all day.
  3. Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray. I personally like to lock down my makeup with this hypoallergenic setting spray even on sunny days because I don’t have time to touch myself up throughout the day when I’m looking after my clients’ makeup. But it’s especially crucial on a rainy day! I spray it after I’ve applied everything but before mascara + lipstick.
  4. Covergirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara. I love a mascara that lasts like a waterproof one but still gives big volume (so hard to find!). This one won’t move even when you shower, so rain doesn’t stand a chance! But comes off with remover, don’t worry!
  5. Revlon ColorStay Mineral Lip Glaze. I love that it lasts up to 8 hours, has a glossy finish and comes in the happiest prettiest colors!

So that’s my secret weapon department of my makeup drawer! Can’t wait to read what’s in yours!
