How-To: Waterproof Any Mascara

I am a huge fan of waterproof makeup because I have really watery eyes from allergies and can’t stand runny makeup. But, we all have favorite products and, if you’re like me, just wish that they were waterproof (i.e. Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara, why are you not waterproof?!). Well, your wish just came true, at least for mascara!

‘Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat’ by Anastasia Beverly Hills, .19 oz., $21.

This is an ultra secret (not really) beauty fave of mine that will turn any mascara into waterproof mascara! Love, love, love. Although it is not as great of a result as using an actual waterproof mascara alone (most likely due to application error) this stuff has really helped fix my “raccoon eyes” problem that I always get with normal mascara. Although, different ways of avoiding “raccoon eyes” is a different post in itself (I will get to it). Make sure to apply one coat of Lash Genius after your mascara has dried.

I purchased it at my local Sephora, and although $21 seems steep, that’s less than the cost of higher end mascaras and maybe this will help you get more use out of other mascaras you may not usually reach for (too much smudging or flaking? Use Lash Genius on top = problem solved). You’re welcome.
