Waterproof eyeliners are absolutely essential in the summer for the rest of the world, but thanks to our climate (read: high humidity and heat), they are often staples in many women's makeup kits.

And where better to turn to than these trusted K-beauty brands when looking for bulletproof and affordable options?

Here, our favourite waterproof eyeliners that refused to budge all day long:

CLIO Sharp So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner in 01 Black, $19.90

With a retractable tip, this pencil liner has a creamy consistency that goes on effortlessly for an intense look. Plus, if you use a smudging brush to soften the edges, you can create subtly smoky eyes that doesn't move or shift all day.

3CE Super Slim Pen Eyeliner, $20

Just like its name suggests, this liquid liner has an extremely thin brush tip that is easily controlled for precise application. Not too flimsy nor too stiff, it glides over the lids smoothly without dragging or tugging for a bold and highly-pigmented look that lasts all day.

Laneige Finger Graphic Liner in 01 Black, $36

Beyond its waterproof formula, this uniquely designed liner has a finger grip handle that supports your fingers and adds stability so that you can achieve a pro-like finish. Instead of a brush tip that tends to fray, the applicator here is made of felt for added ease of control. It is also suitable for sensitive eyes and skin.

Moonshot Line Performer Liquid Eyeliner, $23

With an ultra-fine felt tip, this liquid eyeliner dispenses evenly so you can draw a smooth and even line easily. Plus, it is made of jetblack pigments for an intense colour payoff that doesn't smudge or fade throughout the day.

Etude House Proof10 Gelquid Liner, $18

With a shorter handle compared to most liquid liners, this gives even makeup novices enough stability so that everyone can create any desired look. Moreover, the unique formula stays true-to-colour all day long and doesn't shift one bit.

Unny Club Skinny Slim Pencil, $14.90

With a 2mm ultra-slim tip, this retractable pencil format is self-sharpening so it is easy to carry around. It has a quick dry gel base that glides over the lash line smoothly and sets within seconds, repelling sweat, humidity and sebum for a flawless look that lasts for hours on end.

Innisfree Gel Liner, $10

Combining the long-lasting wear of a gel eyeliner in a convenient pencil format, it deposits intense pigments to accentuate your eyes without any irritation. Once set, the formula remains budge-proof throughout the day but removes easily with an eye makeup remover.
