On board beauty: The best waterproof mascaras
by Zoe Dickens
Whether you like to join your kids on the best children's water toys or prefer to sunbathe on the beach club, most superyacht activities come with the risk of getting wet. While this is ideal in sunny climes when you’re showing off one of the best summer bikinis, it can wreak havoc on your make-up. Make sure you never risk panda eyes again with our round-up of the best waterproof mascaras.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof
The original Sumptuous Extreme mascara is a go-to for women all over the world thanks to its wide comb-like brush, lightweight and vitamin-enriched formula, which promotes long, healthy lashes. The waterproof version promises all these benefits along with flake-free, smudgeproof resistance to salt, chlorinated and fresh water for up to 10 hours.

Clinique High Impact Waterproof mascara
If you’re looking for an everyday mascara that promises length and volume without smudging or streaking then Clinique’s High Impact mascara is ideal. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, the gentle formula means it can also be easily removed with a good quality cleanser – a make-up bag must have.

Chanel Inimitable Waterproof mascara
Favoured by many women for its sleek, luxurious packaging alone, Chanel’s Inimitable waterproof mascara is much more than just a pretty face. Containing vitamin B5 and camuaba and beeswax for thick, nourished lashes, its soft elastomer brush has ultra-fine bristles that separate, curl and lengthen with every stroke. Plus, if the holiday mood has got you feeling adventurous, it comes in violet and orange as well as black.

YSL Luxurious Mascara Waterproof
Many women are put off waterproof mascaras because, somewhat understandably, they can often be difficult to remove and prove harsh on the lashes. YSL’s brilliant formula promises a huge 24-hour hold that magnifies lashes to almost a false lash effect, yet remains incredibly easy to take off at the end of the day. The perfect partner to superyacht pool parties.

Diego Dalla Palma Semi-Permanent Technical mascara
Not content with just being highly water resistant, the advanced formula in Diego Dalla Palma’s cult product claims to be the world’s first semi-permanent mascara. The soft, creamy formula promises definition and volume that will leave lashes with a long-term tint after just five days of consecutive use. You’ll need an oil-based make-up remover to wipe it away completely, but we think it’s worth it.
