Why am I using waterproof mascara instead of a regular mascara?
Why am I using a mascara that is harder to remove on a daily basis?
What is the deal with waterproof mascara and why do I love it so much? I’ll tell you 🙂
Waterproof mascara is a mascara that is cry-proof, rain-proof and even swim-proof! There are also water resistant mascaras, and those mascaras can take some tears, and some rain, but you can usually not swim with them.
When most of us think about waterproof mascara we often think about weddings, funerals or hot summer days on the beach.
For me, waterproof mascara is my go to, every day of the year.
Why? Because waterproof mascara will keep the curl on your lashes that most non WP mascaras won’t, because they don’t contain any water that will weigh down the lashes after curling them.
So if you have very straight lashes that just won’t keep the curl, try a waterproof mascara and see how it works for you! The mascara itself won’t curl the lashes, you need an eyelash curler first, and then apply the mascara after.
Also, FYI, just because a mascara is waterproof doesn’t mean it’s oil proof! if you have very oily eyelids or under eye areas they might transfer after a couple of hours. But this is easily avoided by applying a powder on the oily areas.
How do I remove a WP mascara?
Don’t waste your time trying to rub it off with your regular makeup remover, rubbing will damage the skin around the eyes and also your lashes. Use a gentle two-phase remover on a cotton pad, (available with oil, and oil free) keep the pad on the eye for a couple of seconds and then just wipe it off. I like to use a waterproof makeup remover to remove all my makeup because it takes it off so much faster 🙂
