Beach-Proof Makeup

Wednesday, July 09, 2014


Wait what? Who on earth thought wearing makeup to the beach was a thing? But if you're skin isn't on top form, there's some pesky spots on the horizon, if you're face isn't 100% "beach ready" then makeup is, quite frankly, a must.  

Base
No one wants a heavy foundation in sweat-worthy heat, so stick to a light BB, CC or even DD cream, yes DD cream (sigh). High end or drugstore, it's all about trial and error, finding the one that's best for you - any excuse for a cheeky splurge. 

Eyes
Forget about the eyeshadow and eyeliner. Curl your lashes and apply some mascara, waterproof mascara (obviously). Bourjois' Volume 1 Seconde Mascara at £9.99 is an investment worth making, not only for beach days but also stay-at-home-movie days where you find yourself uncontrollably sobbing at The Notebook. 


Or, if worst comes to worst and hayfever strikes, whack on a pair of sunnies, no problemo. 

Lips
Don't go for anything special. Get yourself and tropical flavoured lip balm, and that'll make you feel like you're on holiday. Try Balmi's Coconut Lip Balm Cube, it's pocket sized and cooler than stick shaped balms.  


The Remover
Now the hype has gone down about L'OREAL's Micellar Water, other makeup removers can shine through, including Bobbi Brown's £17.50 Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover. Only needing to use maximum of 2 cotton pads per face, this claims to not leave the annoying oily residue afterwards, winner. 


And there you have it, makeup made for the beach or the less beach ready of us. On occasion, give you're skin a break and use a trip to the beach an excuse to do so.
