You probably don’t want your summer look to include gooey mascara running down your face or a bright red nose burned from too much sun. Summer isn’t always your friend when it comes to beauty, but with the right products, you can still rock an unmelted look that even protects your skin from the sun.

These waterproof makeup picks are perfect for a pool party, a beachside barbecue or even a surprise summer rain shower. And besides helping you look your best all summer, they’re not full of mysterious chemicals that can irritate your skin and harm the environment.

Foundation: Start off your look with all-natural Makeup Forever Face & Body Liquid Makeup ($40; Sephora.com). Using a gel formula, it gives skin an even tone that stays all day. Or try BareMinerals Matte ($27; Beauty.com) for a light foundation that also packs SPF 15.

Mascara: There are tons of waterproof mascara brands out there, but how many use coffee extract and rice protein? Lotus mascara ($18; LotusCosmeticsUSA.com) combines those ingredients plus sunflower oil to condition lashes and boost volume while staying smudge- and waterproof-resistant.

Lipstick: It’s not just lip balm that offers sun protection. Get SPF 15 and luxurious lips with NatureLuxe Gloss Balm from CoverGirl ($7.49; CoverGirl.com). Plus, it’s fortified with mango, so it even tastes like summer.

Eyeshadow: Packed with vitamins A and E, Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow ($19; Ulta.com) helps protect the delicate skin on your eyelids while giving you a smoky eye look that holds up under sweat, tears and even a dip in the pool.
