This is definitely a good value to have, but at the same time, it cannot be denied that being presentable won’t hurt, too. Perhaps this is why makeup has become an integral part of a majority of people’s lives; it enhances assets, hides insecurities, and overall gives a boost of confidence.
But now that the rainy season has arrived, looking your best every day might become a challenge as the wet weather can easily ruin your look. Thank the heavens for waterproof cosmetics, especially cheap waterproof makeup from drugstores! Not only are they convenient to buy, they are also very affordable, what with price tags that don’t exceed PhP500! Check out five amazing waterproof makeup that you can snag from our local drugstores the next time you’re out shopping!
