Whether it's thanks to hay fever or the joy of seeing beloved friends tie the knot, this time of year tends to be a tearjerker, which means that when I wear mascara it must be waterproof. And it's not just eye make-up that needs staying power in the summer months – sweat, swimming and sudden showers can all conspire to wash away cosmetics.

Luckily, weatherproofing isn't just for sheds, and many items in your make-up bag now come with added staying power, without the pore-clogging, grease-paint like qualities of yore. That's handy, come rain or shine.

Stylo eyeshadow in 127 laurier rose

£23, Chanel, 020 7493 3836

Copper and bronze are having a moment – and this smooth, rosy gold is a lovely way to wear the warm metallic trend. The strong colour glides on and stays put.

Dream Bronze BB 8-in-1 beauty balm

£6.99, Maybelline,

This will add a sunkissed glow with light coverage and the bonus of SPF 25 protection – ideal for ditching your heavy foundation in summer months.


Pro Longwear nourishing waterproof foundation


For those who don't want to give up full coverage, this lightweight satin-finish foundation can also double up as a concealer.

Sport waterproof mascara


All this brand's make-up is waterproof, but this seriously won't budge. The plump, curved brush really boosts volume too.

Perfectly Defined long wear brow pencil in grey


Brows don't need to be bare when lounging in the pool – define and fill with the pencil end before brushing through for a natural finish.
