Not that we want to bang on about it, but the weather is pretty changeable right now. Other than the fact we can't wear those cute sandals we bought especially for the summer, our makeup is not liking it either (particularly on those days we forget our umbrella). Thankfully, there's a host of waterproof makeup that can make looking like a drowned rat avoidable. Our favourite type of waterproof makeup is waterproof eyeliner, as once applied, it won't shift, even when there's a torrential downpour.

To keep your makeup looking good during the early autumn we're having, we've rounded up the liquid, gel, and kohl liners that won't move unless you want them to.

Keep scrolling for our roundup of the ultimate waterproof eyeliners…
