If fears of makeup meltdown have you dreading the summer heat, you'll want to check out all the freshly launched water-resistant beauty loot on the market this month.

Just keep in mind that these long-lasting lovelies need extra care in application and removal. "Waterproof makeup tends to dry faster so you need to work faster.
