Disney Proof Eye Makeup
I update this post often the recommendations are current.
I spent the last couple of years testing makeup I can wear while exercising. To be sure makeup won’t run or cause pimples. For those of you who do not run there are plenty of female runners that use cosmetics. Some of them wear a full face to races. They run fast and look flawless.
I tested all makeup and primers while running and at Disneyland in the heat; I discovered not all makeup will stay put. Even waterproof. If advertised as waterproof remember that does not equate sweat proof. Waterproof cosmetics can clog your pores and would not recommend daily use. If you use pore filling primer that helps but, I am no expert.
I lost count of how many mascaras and eye primers I tried. Many products that work well are expensive. That is ridiculous I know that is why I made an effort to include budget friendly items.
These eye products stand up in the heat. If you can run or workout while wearing I will notate that.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir pops up as an insider perk at Sephora often. It is one of my all times favorites and it stays put. I have had no issues with it running in the heat.
Better than sex waterproof. The Too Faced better than sex formula flakes and smudges. The waterproof formula is better. It looks better than the original. You can purchase Better Than Sex Waterproof at Sephora in the travel size, and I've noticed the travel size lasts about the same time as the big tube.
I recommend Eyeko Sport waterproof mascara and catch and crawl as the best no budget mascara. I ran the Pixie Dust Challenge wearing this. There were flakes underneath my eye, but it held up. I've had other mascaras get runny from less sweat. I Please note it is difficult to remove.
I am in love with this mascara. and can't believe it's not waterproof mascara! Lancôme Defincils Definition Mascara. Defincils does not budge in the heat. It is my holy grail mascara. I will warn you I am trying a new mascara that may have this one beat.
Clinique lash power mascara is a tube mascara that I tried while running. Lash Power works well in mild head and humidity. If water or sweat get on your lower lash line be aware, it will flake and run.
Two more high-end mascaras they're both from Mark Jacobs. I would recommend O! mega lash and the Velvet Noir mascara they don't budge. If you use the two together, it will look like you're wearing false lashes.
I am not the biggest fan of Lifted by Tarte which is marketed as sweat proof. One of the many reasons I hate Lifted is because the only color is black brown I'm not a fan of the lighter color mascaras. I want a dark black. This mascara will run, but Lifted holds up pretty well. If you’re working out, don’t use it. Lifted also the natural and less likely option to melt off your face.
L'Oréal Paris double extends mascara primer and mascara is not my favorite. The formula does work well and survives mild of sweating. Double Extends is less likely to give you, issues. I have had the hardest time finding a drugstore mascara that stays put.
I like Maybelline the mega Plush Volume express waterproof which is good and inexpensive. Maybelline mascaras have a wet formula. I open them five or six days before use because if I don’t like it, clumps and takes forever to dry.
Clinique bottom lash mascara works wonders on the bottom lashes. Ideal for using those who are prone to raccoon eyes.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof lasts through my workouts at the gym. If you sweat hard, it will smear a little.
Use a Mascara Primer. Mascara primers condition and protect your lashes. If you use waterproof, this helps prevent damaging your lashes. Did you know Lancôme owns L’Oreal? Lancôme owns Urban Decay. So the Urban Decay Subversion Lash is the same as L’Oreal Voluminous lash primer. I would recommend going with the L'Oréal.
I am still testing as of May 2018 the Laura Mercier Eye Basics Eye Primer. It makes eye makeup water resistant. It is Twenty-Eight dollars. I've noticed creasing, and I came home once, and the shadow was missing from my crease. I would skip this one. It's hard to find an eye primer that will make your eye makeup water resistant. This was featured many subscription boxes. You may find a small one for sale or trade in subscription box groups.
Nyx Proof It makes your shadow waterproof. The formula is sticky and can make blending hard, but works better than the Laura Mercier primer. You can also apply this on your brows. The formula is stellar and holds up to sweat and mild splashing.
Essence I love stage eyeshadow base is a good drugstore time saver. THe Essence primer evens skin tone on the lids. The formula is not the best, but if you’re on a tight budget, this is a decent primer.
Too Faced makes a primer Shadow Insurance. Milani eyeshadow primer is a dupe. Eye primer prevents your concealer from creasing when used under the eyes. The formula does not make your shadow sweat proof but helps eye shadow stay on longer.
Most of the long-wearing eyebrow products are high-end sorry I know that is expensive. But consider the NYX primer could help with any brow product.
The It brow power pencil in the universal color has not failed me when running. Miniature size is available for $12 which if you're on budget eyebrow pencils last a long time and the formula is good.
Anastasia of Beverly Hills Brow Whiz it wears all day long I love it. I top it with Benefits Gimmie Brow, which will run in the heat. I’ve lost half a brow, but the brow whiz stayed put. It’s my Holy Grail brow product.
Eye makeup will stay put in the heat you have to test it before you leave for Disney. Primer makes a huge difference so does powdering the lids after priming. I always suggest starting with an inexpensive waterproof eye primer and seeing if that is enough to keep your eye shadow on when you sweat. Check back as I add more makeup to the list.
Tell me what eye products stand up to the heat. What should I try next?
