Waterproof Makeup

Hey beauties, Its summer time and you wanna go to the beach or pool and look good right so I got a question asking "Trying to find a waterproof concealer or foundation. One that can withstand going in a pool...Any suggestions?"

There are many options when it comes to waterproofing your makeup.

Option #1

If you already have a foundation you use every day whether liquid or powder (one with SPF preferably), just add a foundation  primer before you apply your foundation. This helps you makeup to stay on longer whether you sweat or you take a dip. Some suggestions for primers:
MAC prep + prime (skin base) Face Primer ( $25
Philosophy On A Clear Day Acne Clarifying Primer ( $30
Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer ( or  $38
L'oreal Studio Secrets Face Primer ( or $10.99
Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer ( or $16- $18 

Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer ($12.99
Rimmel Foundation Primer (drugstores or or $6 
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ( or department stores) $30
 I use GOSH Velvet Touch Foundation Primer ( $28 
Smashbox Photofinish Primers

Option # 2

Long wear Makeup. Try a long wear makeup brand which should last longer than average foundation, up to 8 hrs and should hold up when you go into the water.
MAC Pro Longwear Foundation ( $29.50. Hopefully you find your shade.
