Beach Friendly Makeup Tips
I’m sure you love the beach. The waves, the sun, the wind and of course a tan. But the beach isn’t so fun when it comes to keeping your make-up still even after a long day surfing and of course those beach boys need some impressing. So here’s how to put your best face forward and still have fun at the beach.
#1 Did you wear your Sunscreen?
Towel, check. Vogue, check. Sunscreen, check. But are you wearing a sunscreen on your face? We tend to slather sunscreen on our bodies when we get to the beach but sometimes forget that your face is just as important. It’s also better to get a sunscreen that is suited for your face, than only for your body. Make sure you prepare your face first with a good sunscreen walking out the door.
#2 Light & Breezy Colors
Your make-up should always match your surroundings. It’s the beach. Fun, carefree, and relaxing so make sure your make-up is just as fun and flirty. Go for lighter summer colors like peach blushes or colored winged liner. Forget the wintery dark reds and go for sky blue, mint green and pastels.
#3 Tinted Moisturizer or Mineral Make-Up
The best foundation for a day at the beach has to be light and natural. If you’re whipping on your regular and heavy liquid or cream foundation, prepare for a makeup disaster as the sun speeds up oxidation and you can find yourself wiping off your foundation that’s melted. Instead opt for tinted moisturizer or mineral make-up that can still provide you sheer and light coverage. Don’t cake your foundation up with a powder, either. Embrace your natural complexion and just have fun.
#4 Waterproof is Key
As you’re near water, it’s only necessary that everything you apply is waterproof. Instead of powder eye shadow, look for a swipe of waterproof cream eye shadow or liner. Always put on waterproof mascara. You’ll find less than necessary smudging but always bring along the necessary make-up bag in case to touch up!
#5 Anti-Perspirant Tip
It’s hot and sunny and for some reason you find yourself sweating more than usual. Simply apply your anti-perspirant at night and that way it has more time to “soak” into the skin. The next day, shower and apply another swipe and you are good to go!
Have a great time at the beach!
