Now that rainy season has begun, we are no longer looking for sweat-proof makeup. We are now on the hunt for products that will withstand the droplets of water that find their way to our faces. One important makeup you’re probably thinking of switching is your mascara. Aside from being smudge-proof, you now need something that is waterproof as well. This way, you don’t have to worry about your mascara running when you’re stuck walking under the rain or have a little cry fest. These mascaras can also last when it’s humid. Let’s get real, just because it’s raining that doesn’t mean Manila is free from humidity. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect mascara for this weather, check out the products below.
Max Factor Lash Crown Waterproof Mascara
This waterproof formula also adds volume and definition to the lashes. The brush volumizes the base, while the tip adds detailed definition. Because it is waterproof, it will keep your lashes voluminous throughout the day. Available at Beauty Bar.

Aside from being waterproof, the formula of this mascara is also volume-plumping. It is also enriched with collagen and is clump-free.
