And he's right: This drugstore formula counts Mario Dedivanovic, Ariel Tejada, and Quynh as fans, and the brand's waterproof formula is just as beloved. (Ta swears by it for long days on set. ) Keep this one around for those busy days when you're out and about from sunrise to sunset — and beyond. "Lancôme just knows mascara, and this one still gives you good, full lashes while protecting you from the dreaded raccoon eye," says Los Angeles-based makeup artist Fiona Stiles of Hypnose Waterproof Mascara. "Lots of waterproof mascaras give you long, skinny lashes, but this one gives you the volume you want.
Each little heart-shaped fiber in this formula holds onto lashes to volumize, define, and lengthen, forming a film that seals in conditioning color — hemp and sunflower seed oils make lashes feel so good — and seals out water. "It's waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof and has no fallout," says New York City-based makeup artist Stoj. "The hourglass bristles give you maximum length and volume. " So, pretty much everything you could want in a formula.
CoverGirl's LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara is a must-have for New York City-based makeup artist Yuki Hayashi. "It plumps the lashes, and the fat brush makes application easy by allowing you to grab a lot of lashes in one swoop.
If you have straight lashes, Los Angeles-based makeup artist Mai Quynh recommends swiping on the water-resistant Clé de Peau Beauté Perfect Lash Mascara after curling them. "It is a lightweight formula that holds the curl and doesn’t make them too wet and straight," she explains.
She also loves how the half-moon wand of the Best of Beauty Award winner allows you to cover all your lashes with one coat. "L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara is a staple in every makeup artist's kit," Patrick Ta says.
