Shutterstock_2081862 We’re hesitant to recommend the use of waterproof mascara, as it tends to be damaging to the lashes, drying them out, while also encouraging wrinkles by tugging at the lids. It’s okay for rare, special occasions, but in general, you can get the same effect with far less hassle and damage using a water resistant mascara instead.
