One-Swipe Waterproof Eyeliners That Will Not Quit
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that it's always unpleasant to catch a glimpse of ourselves in a mirror midway through the day only to notice that our morning application of eyeliner has either disappeared or is making its way down our face. Lucky for us, these waterproof eyeliners are here to save the day. While you may not necessarily be headed to the pool with a full face of makeup, the South does not play when it comes to offering up a host of environmental reasons as to why your eyeliner is never safe (mid-afternoon monsoon, triple-digit temps, peak humidity levels, etc.). No matter what comes your way, these are the best waterproof mascaras to help you face your day.
