Beach Day Beauty Essentials
At the beach, pool or lake I like to look natural but I also want to feel confident. The products I’ve chosen as my beach day beauty essentials are meant to protect and enhance your natural beauty.
We all have specific products that help us to feel more confident and for me that’s concealer (for any trouble spots I may have that day) and some mascara to help my blonde lashes pop. For you it may be something different, brows or a lip color… whatever it may be, adjust my essentials to suit you and the things you would like to conceal or enhance. Happy Summer!
This stuff is WATERPROOF! And it’s been water sport tested and approved by yours truly! It’s a must for me every day but especially when I’m playing in the water. Don’t let the name fool you, it works wonder on my under eye area but is just as amazing at concealing dark spots, redness and pimples! I mix shades light and neutral medium to get my perfect color.
The best way to re-apply sunscreen if you are concerned about smearing off whatever makeup you may have on. It won’t go on quite as well over top powder (try a spray sunscreen for that) but it’s perfect for over concealer or tinted moisturizer. Simply use like you would a cushion foundation, press the applicator into sunscreen and gently pat onto skin. Bonus that it has super fancy packaging and a large mirror inside.
No smudge mascara
This mascara doesn’t claim to be waterproof however, I’m going on my 2nd summer with this stuff and it has yet to fail me. The best part is that I don’t have to buy a second mascara only for pool days! Maybe that’ll help me justify the the $26 price tag…
An obvious but totally necessary one is SPF for the lips. I love Sun Bum sunscreen so I picked up the lip balm and I wasn’t disappointed. I love the coconut flavor one but there are 6 tropical flavors to choose from.
