Summers are on a brutal high. But they can’t weigh down on your complexion. Go hit the beach in your sarongs and flirty swimwear with sweat-proof and waterproof makeup by your side. Here are some beach-ready make up tips to add a bit of spice and chill to your looks while you go frolicking with the sand and snails.
Best Beach Makeup Tips
Ready for some Makeup For Beach ideas?
Applying makeup is a natural instinct. Without batting an eyelid, dab a generous coat of sunscreen. Allow it to penetrate your skin for 20 minutes. The more it dries, less would be the chances of it getting smeared. In case you need to reapply, put a touch up of powder sunblock. Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush or BareMinerals BareSkin Foundation SPF 20 work as a smooth slather without distorting your makeup. Hurray!
Foundation is Friend
Humidity is the worst thing to happen to makeup, given its greasy after-effects. Before it ruins your look, do some coverage by mixing foundation into your sunscreen and then applying it. Go for powder-based products. They will help you get the shine through a light dusting of translucent powder. If you need to hide blemishes and flaws, get a hard core concealer brush and dab some pressed powder onto the area. Sounds good, what say?
The art of makeup revolves around enhancing the natural skin tone. A bronzer is the perfect item to get you that. But make sure it doesn’t leave any shimmering effect in the bright sun. Put a bit of bronzer on your face, not in excess, on your cheekbones, forehead, temples and chin. Once done, follow it up with pink blush on your cheeks and there you are – absolutely sun ready! Go apply Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain that gives a translucent rose effect for hours.
Mascara & Eyeliner
The trouble with waterproof makeup is that it sometimes gives you a pasty look. Thankfully, that’s not the case with waterproof mascara. L’Oréal Double Extend Waterproof Mascara has dual qualities of a topcoat and a primer that won’t sink your eyes after a dip in the waves. Then there is Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eyeliner which will give you the twin benefit of easy-to-use gel that dries up into a fool-proof liner. This way your eyes will never have a wash-out effect.
A beach-appropriate lip colour is what one needs. Skip matte lipsticks that will be heavy and dry on your lips. Use a tinted balm – it keeps your lips hydrated and won’t leave a flaky impact.

Brighter shades of nail polish would be an absolute pairing to your bikini. Try Orly’s Sunscreen For Nails before you step out in the sun to get UV protection. This will make sure that the colours stay glossy as ever.
Powders are a mild enemy to your face when you are surfing around on the beach in your fashion ready clothes. Go for a blush cream such as Make Up For Ever. Its waterproof formula gives you a velvety texture in multiple colour hues and is perfect for all skin tones.
You are on a beach honey, so why fret and frown if your makeup fades on the beach. Just chill with some juice on the beach and avoid retouching your makeup. Use a blotting paper to get rid of makeup, if it feels clumpy.
