Yeah, we know—if we’re enjoying the great outdoors, splashing in the pool, or just generally out and about during the summer months, we should just scale back the makeup and go for that fresh fun-in-the-sun glow. And we’re all about that, but sometimes a girl has to have a little oh, say, mascara and eyeliner, which something as simple as a little summer humidity can destroy in about 12 seconds flat.

At the moment, we’re liking Maybelline’s Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner (which you can smudge a bit with a Q-tip before it sets, if you don’t want that solid line look), and for years we’ve sworn by Maybelline’s Great Lash Waterproof Mascara formula. But we want to know—what are your fave waterproof makeup products, on a budget?
