For many of us, summer means spending more time at the pool, beach or lake. And to withstand all of that water, summer makeup needs to be particularly effective. For those planning a seaside vacation or a day by the water, here's a rundown of some of the waterproof essentials to pack in your makeup kit.
If you had to reduce your makeup kit to just one item, it would have to be this one. But although mascara is a makeup must, wearing it at the beach or the pool can be risky, as no one wants to come out of the water with black-streaked cheeks. Luckily, cosmetics brands have developed waterproof options that are sure to stay put on your lashes. And since it's summer, Dior invites beauty fans to shake things up and try a new color: Cruise Blue. For those who prefer to stick to classic black, Maybelline also offers a waterproof solution.

- Colossal Go Extreme Waterproof Mascara, Maybelline, 12/around $16
For those of us who are addicted to this makeup item, tinted lip gloss or balms just don't cut it on their own. The good news is that Make Up For Ever has a lipstick solution designed to withstand a day at the beach. Available in 17 shades, Aqua Rouge is applied in two easy steps: first the color, followed by the clear gloss to set it. For those who prefer an even simpler solution, Sisley's iconic long-lasting moisturizing lipstick will do the trick. And with 26 colors available, there is bound to be one for you.

After finding the perfect waterproof lipstick, you may want to find a waterproof liner to match. Smashbox offers a solution with its water-resistant Always Sharp Lip Liner, which comes in 12 shades. If you're looking for something that will last even longer in the water, Givenchy offers its waterproof lip pencil in 10 colors.

For those who never leave home before lining their eyes with kohl, be sure to choose a waterproof liner before hitting the beach. No one wants to come out of the water with panda eyes! Lanc me, for one, offers a dependable waterproof liner in black, bronze, midnight blue and three other shades.
