Though this weekend was beautiful, we all remember that last week was a weather nightmare. What’s worse than having to trek to class in the stuffy April rain? You wake up to the sound of water falling on the side walk, and all you want to do is continously press the snooze button until all of your responsibilities fade away. But unfortunately, it’s a Tuesday morning, and you have to be at Dallas Hall in 30 minutes. You want to look polished and pulled together with a quick makeup look, but you also don’t want to have eye shadow and mascara streaming down your face when your arrive to class. So, we’ve compiled a list of products to help you throw together a rainy day makeup look that won’t disappear with a little bad weather.
Mac has a ton of foundations that are promised to last all day, but the best for rainy days is the Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation. This product is described as a “tenacious waterproof formula” that wears for 24 hours. Neither “rain nor tears can budge this watertight product.”
