Waterproof foundation

Recommended Posts

I currently use either Double Wear or Max Factor Lasting Performance, depending on how much coverage I want. But does anyone know if either of these are waterproof to a certain extent? I mean, obviously if you wash your face it comes off, but I'm going surfing in a couple of weeks and I just wondered if there was any hope for me not being exposed as having acne when I go in the water!

Sorry i haven't tried DW or Max Factor, but they are long wearing foundations so they probably would hold up ok. I would recommend Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer. Before, my makeup would rub off after a couple hours in the water, but this stuff does not budge for the life of it :)

It's technically designed to be used as an "undereye" concealer, but I use it on my blemishes and it stays on beautifully through humidity and heat. The only con...it is a bit on the expensive side $27, but I think it's well worth it.

I used to wear Clinique's Work Out makeup about 10 years ago and it did work. I am not sure if they make it anymore. I still think to this day that was the cause of my long term acne problem. I didn't have acne until I started wearing it. From what I understand, a lot of those types of makeup can really clog your pores.
