Waterproof Concealer

Saptakee Sengupta
Our makeup normally gets washed when it comes in contact with water. A waterproof concealer will help to avoid this.
Concealers are used to cover the dark spots, acne, pimples, scars, marks, veins, freckles, ruddy parts, blemishes, or under eye dark circles. After applying the eye liner, foundation, lipstick, etc., we become conscious if it will last long or not.
On gatherings or parties with friends, we are very careful about our makeup. We become so conscious, that at times, we frequently visit the washroom to catch a quick glimpse of our face, to check if the makeup still persists or has been wiped away by the sweat and oil on the face. We end up wiping our makeup trying to dry the sweat on the face with tissues.
With the upgradation in the quality of beauty products, many companies are manufacturing cosmetics that are not only waterproof, but also long-lasting. Waterproof concealer is one amongst them. Information here will brief you with all the details about this product.


♠   While normal concealers usually fade way soon when they come in contact with water, the ones that are waterproof have an ingredient dimethicone, a silicone-based water-resistant oil. It keeps the skin soft and supple and helps in easy application of the product. Being water resistant, it does not get washed away.
♠   They are useful for swimming or when on a beach.
♠   Sweat, it wipes away makeup and exposes the real texture of skin. But this product helps retain makeup while sweating and keeps you fresh.
♠   Watery eyes remove the makeup. But this cosmetic hides dark circles, even after splashing water on the face. Hence, its utility is better than normal concealers.
