Addicted to Beauty – Alex the Waterproof Wonder

Dr. Payne (Alex Payne that is) shares her tips for a long lasting look no matter what trouble you manage to get yourself into.  Go Waterproof!
I’ve always found my mascara and eyeliner looks amazing once I’ve applied it, only to have it hanging out just below my water line in no time. I’ve also always been very adamant against using waterproof eye makeup, since it seems to take an arsenal of makeup remover to clean it off. However, I’ve discovered an unbeatable team of products that take my eye makeup game from raccoon to runway: waterproof makeup and baby oil!
If your eyes are as irritatingly watery as mine, you’ll come to appreciate the incredible difference switching to waterproof can make. It seems like a no brainer, but it took an accidental waterproof mascara purchase to discover how much better these products actually are. And the perfect way to remove these seemingly cemented pigments? Pour some baby oil on a tissue or cotton pad and swipe away (and since it’s made for babies, it’s perfect for the delicate skin around your eyes). Nothing will be hotter on New Years Eve than your perfectly in place cat eye liner and eye-popping lashes.
On a budget? Pair Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise liner + L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara. Take it off with baby oil from your local drug store!
Want to splurge? Pair Stila Stay All Day Liner + Benefit ‘They’re Real’ Mascara. Take it off with Lancome Bi-facil eyemakeup remover!
