Ever wonder how mermaids keep their makeup from running? Their secret has to be wondrously waterproof mascara, and if you basically live at the beach too, you should give it a go. Here are a few waterproof mascaras from our favorite brands. Which will you try first?

So this mascara's water-resistant, not waterproof, but I had to include it anyway because it comes in so many gorgeous colors, from inky black to bright purple, blue, and green.
2 Diorshow Waterproof Mascara
This is my all-time favorite mascara, so I'm thrilled there's a beach-friendly waterproof version.

I love that this mascara holds up so well, but that it's still so easy to remove — all you need is warm water.
4 Buxom Lash Waterproof Mascara
This brush and mascara work together to make lash magic, with loads of length and volume without any clumping.
