Ask any professional makeup artists how they prep celebrities for long days on set and red carpet events and they'll immediately recommend using waterproof mascara. Not only will it last the whole day but you are guaranteed that it will not flake or smudge.


While some swear by drugstore options, others love to splurge when picking a mascara. According to Allure, renowned makeup artist Mai Quynh swears by a $50 luxury formula. Here is a look at five high-end mascaras that are worth the money.

Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara


Price: $32.00

If you want your lashes to look like they got extensions, then the high-precision formula of the Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara is for you. The formula promises to give lashes instant volume and color with one coat. This is perfect for those who don't want to pay for lash extensions and aren't fans of falsies either.

Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara


Price: $29.50

Dior’s cult-favorite is a staple on the catwalk and summer makeup routines. The formula gives lashes instant volume, length, and seductive curl. Most importantly, Dior's exclusive Aquastop water-resistant technology ensures it won't budge for the entire.

Clé de Peau Beauté Perfect Lash Mascara


Price: $55

The perfect lash mascara promises a 360-degree coating of every eyelash in one coat. The mascara will leave you with luxuriously voluminous, beautiful lashes and is a firm favorite of Los Angeles-based makeup artist Mai Quynh.

"It is a lightweight formula that holds the curl and doesn’t make them too wet and straight,"

she said to Allure.

Lancôme Hypnose Waterproof Mascara


Price: $28

Another makeup artist-approved mascara is the waterproof Lancôme Hypnôse Drama mascara. The generous Convex brush gives lashes a stunning volumized look and the waterproof formula holds up for 24 hours.

"Lancôme just knows mascara, and this one still gives you good, full lashes while protecting you from the dreaded raccoon eye. Lots of waterproof mascaras give you long, skinny lashes, but this one gives you the volume you want."

says Los Angeles-based makeup artist Fiona Stiles.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara


Price: $25

The Two-Faced mascara rocked the industry when it was released and for good reason. It was designed to be a holy grail and hit the mark.

"It’s waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof and has no fallout. The hourglass bristles give you maximum length and volume." So, pretty much everything you could want in a formula.

says New York City-based makeup artist Stoj.
