Hot, humid, muggy. It’s usually what happens in New York when temperatures start rising. Of course, makeup melts, hair puffs and mascara runs on the cheeks, and it’s like that all summer long, and it’s worse if you laugh to tears often (=me).

Just a little bit of runny mascara is fine – but I often find myself with panda eyes and my friends laughing at me (all right, so I have the bad habit of touching my face a lot which doesn’t help)(here is the videotaped proof)(you have the right to laugh). So, me, I’m switching. I’m going waterproof.

My favorite is Chanel Inimitable Waterproof, but at the Studio we also love Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof (Aaaah, Maybelline mascaras) and the L’Oréal Voluminous False Fiber Waterproof Mascara.

Do you switch your makeup when summer comes?

PS: Now I’m going to have to explore the world of makeup remover, because waterproof stays and there are a couple things that Bioderma can’t undo.
PPS: Loving mascara the way Gabriela, in the photo, is wearing it. So beautiful, also because it’s the only thing she’s wearing (I wouldn’t try that with a red lip).
PPPS : Also loving Gabriela’s non-tweezed eyebrows. Yes, agreed, you need a perfect line to rock that. But seriously, it’s so sublime I’d say think twice before taking out the tweezers!
