This is where waterproof mascara steps in as your beauty ally, ensuring your gaze remains enchanting – from the vows to the dance floor. While some might shy away from waterproof mascaras due to their past reputation for being drying and stubborn to remove, the landscape has evolved. Today’s waterproof mascaras come armed with improved formulations and performance, making them a must-have in your bridal beauty arsenal. Here are some recommended waterproof mascaras that have received love worldwide.

COVERGIRL Clump Crusher Waterproof Mascara

Why choose between length and volume? COVERGIRL Clump Crusher Waterproof Mascara brings you both. Its chubby curved brush grants length and thickness without any clumps. The wand is a breeze to hold, and the brush ensures even application. Notably, there’s no smudging.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara

Endorsed by bridal makeup artist Michelle Schultz, this mascara delivers remarkably thick and dark lashes with minimal effort. The secret lies in its chubby brush that captures each lash for maximum volume. It might clump with excess application, but it retains a lightweight feel. Our tests showed its resilience against fake tears and rain, yet it’s a cinch to remove using makeup wipes and micellar water.

Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Waterproof Mascara

Even if false eyelashes grace your upper lashes, don’t forget the bottom ones. Maybelline’s thin brush offers precise application, defining and lengthening your lower lashes without a fuss. Say goodbye to clumps and flakes, as it effortlessly survives water-based challenges. And the best part? Easy removal without leaving a trail of black residue.

Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Waterproof Mascara

With a unique S-shaped brush, this mascara ensures each lash is generously coated, producing a fuller and more voluminous appearance. Despite its eccentric design, there’s no product transfer to your lids. It remains intact during water-based scenarios and gracefully comes off with an oil-based remover.

Another one of our favorites, this mascara holds its ground as long as, if not longer than, pricier alternatives. The wand ensures even application, preventing clumps as it extends your lashes. This mascara delivers length while maintaining a natural appearance. No eye drops or face mists are a match for its durability. And while it might require a bit more effort to remove, it’s an excellent choice for those who tend to shed tears of joy.
