    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite waterproof makeup products. Here’s what they had to say:

    1. NYX Proof It Eyeshadow Primer will endure rain and tears.

    "It makes anything on top completely waterproof and keeps eyeshadow from creasing. I cry all the time and it rains everyday where I live, but if I use this, I don't have to worry about smearing. I've also used it as a lip primer on desperate occasions and it works well. It's way cheaper than other eye primers." —havanar0se

    Get it from Ulta for $6.

    2. If you want to avoid having your makeup melt off your face, spritz Urban Decay's De-Slick Oil-Control Setting Spray for protection.

    "The best way to make any product waterproof is using setting spray. Urban Decay Oil Slick setting spray is amazing. Primer is also super important, especially for your eyes." —hannahg413be0727

    Get it from Sephora for $31.

    3. You can take a pie to the face and your liner will still look flawless if you use Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner.
