Waterproof make-up


Toronto - Ontario - Canada

July 3, 2012 - PRLog -- Toronto ON – July 3rd, 2012 – Everyone loves the summer months - lots to do, lots of places to go and lots of parties.  Be it pool-side, at the cottage or even in-town, summer-related activities often lead to the inevitable make-up missteps - smeared mascara, uneven color or caked-on base.  Be gone raccoon eyes and dewy cheeks! Deepa Berar shares her secrets on how you can keep your look waterproofed, clean and fresh-faced.  While not all waterproof products have been created equally, Deepa offers some simple tips and products to keep your look sweat-proof and summer-fabulous.

1.   Use Concealer wisely. Most women tend to use concealer all over the face or under the entire eye rather than just covering dark spots.  Caking on concealer will only make those dark spots more noticeable once the water hits them.  So a slight touch is better than a broad stroke when using concealer.
2.   Use lighter-colored Eyeshadows.   Summer is the time for more natural looks and darker colors tend to look gaudy in the sun.  Opt for Champagnes and lights.  These colors will make your eyes look more open and fresh.  Plus the lighter colors won’t be as noticeable if they run or get wiped off inadvertently.
3.   Stain your face. That’s right, a little stain goes a long way! Remember when your grandmothers would rub their cheeks with lipstick to get that rosy look? Now there are products you can dab on your cheeks which will give you that rosy glow without looking caked on or unnatural.  Deepa’s favorite is Benefit’s brand, Benetint.  It will take a bit of practice to get just right, but the effect gives you a perfectly healthy glow.  Dab some on your lips too, for a natural blush of color on your mouth.
4.   MASCARA.  No need to explain.  We’ve all been there with the raccoon eyes and goth look – whether we intended to or not.  The big secret with mascara is that not all waterproof mascaras are created equal and you need to find the right one for you.  Price doesn’t always dictate effectiveness so try different ones, ask friends, and if you want to splurge a bit, Deepa loves to use Dior’s Diorshow waterproof mascara.
5.   Wash off the Waterproof.  While you want your look to stay put during the day, by the end of the day that you need to take care to take it off.  Waterproof products, especially mascara, can look cakey and damage eyelashes if not removed properly. The best product for removing mascara? Baby Oil. That’s it, that’s all.  Just take care not to get in your eyes, and rinse, rinse, rinse!
