The Beach-Beauty Look!
With summer vacay in view, we’re prepping our makeup bags for days at the beach. Whether you’re poolside partying or just soaking up sun, we’re making time to look and feel our best. We’re obsessed with the "ultimately effortless" look – enhancing your natural beauty to look 100% gorge, with what seems like no effort… Ladies, we know how hard it is to stay glam in high heat, but don't worry: our beauty action plan is totally chilled out. Time to get beach-beautiful with just a few basics!
Sun-kissed skin }
Our number one friend when it sizzles is a trusty SPF. Slather on your fave SPF-fuelled face cream to protect your skin. Then create your base with tinted moisturizer, keeping it sheer to let a golden tan or cute freckles shine through. Try warming your base with your fingertips before applying, for soft and subtle coverage.
Wherever your vacation takes you, your brows should never suffer – they shape your face and transform your look from "okay" to "slay"! Keep ‘em looking fabulous from deckchair to dancefloor by fluffing out the hairs with a spoolie brush, for a thick and full supermodel vibe. Fill in any gaps with a pencil (the perfect tool for long-lasting, heat-defying arches!), and secure the hairs with brow gel to keep that on-point look all day.
Accentuate (or fake) summertime skin by softly dusting a light application of bronzer where the sun naturally hits (think cheekbones, nose and forehead). Going out post-beach? Pack that powder! It’s the perfect pre-party touchup for banishing shine. Finish your look by dabbing subtle shimmer on the cheeks with a highlighter, to catch the sun’s sparkle. Or think multipurpose with a blush stick on the cheeks and eyes for a luscious look in half the time.
Don’t forget those lovely lips when applying SPF! Keep it simple and leave it there, or follow with a heavy dose of your fave lipstick for a pout that packs a punch (remember - glossy lips are susceptible to sunburn!). Stuck for a shade? Think ‘my lips but better’ with neutral pink tones, or up the oomph with bold brights for a look that’s sure to stand out on the sand.
Feeling beach beautiful yet? Get showered with attention in to-die-for swimwear, and strut your stuff in seriously sweet sandals. If you’re heading out when the sun goes down, don’t forget to pack some makeup wipes for an instant refresh. Whatever beach makeup statement you go for – simple or stunning – remember to have fun (with your beauty and your vacay squad!)
