How Long Does Waterproof Mascara Last?

Most waterproof mascaras last up to 24 hours, although we always recommend removing your waterproof mascara (and any makeup) before bed.

How to Remove Waterproof Mascara

The only downside to waterproof mascara is the removal process. However, using an oil-based remover like Lancôme Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover and a cotton pad should make the process easier with minimal tugging. Check out our mascara removal guide for more tips on removing waterproof mascara without irritating your eyes.

Now that you have our editors' top picks for waterproof mascaras, you can confidently rock stunning lashes in any situation. Say goodbye to smudges and hello to long-lasting beauty!
