Don’t be a hot mess this year. Leave the greasy products at home and try our tried and true beach favorites that’ll keep you looking and feeling oh-so-sexy, not ugh-so-sweaty.
SPF (duh!) Even if you’re dark, or don’t burn, you still need to use a broad spectrum sunscreen to shield from the sun’s harmful rays. We love the new La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 45 Ultra Light Sunscreen. It soaks right in and leaves a matte finish so you don’t look greasy, and best of all don’t feel sticky!
Cream eyeshadow stays put through sweating, swimming, and frolicking on the beach. We’re loving Illuminare All Day Eye Color in Cafe Americano.
Waterproof eyeliner is a must to withstand the sweat, sun, salt and sand. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Carbon Black is lovely.
Waterproof mascara is another beach staple to keep your luscious lashes looking fabulous. We’re digging bareMinerals Flawless Defintion Waterproof Mascara, it separates every lash and creates a natural look that’s perfect for a day at the beach! Now you can swim, sweat and laugh until you cry.
Body bronzer is a must have if you’d like to look sun-kissed without being sun-damaged. NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer Multi-Usage Dry Oil Splash gives baby-oil sheen without the slick, and the golden particles make you glisten like a goddess. Layer over sunscreen for a gorgeous glimmery finish.
If you’re wearing lip gloss on the beach, sand is guaranteed to stick and who wants that sort of muddle? If you want pink, kissable lips without the mess then stick to lip stains. Stila Yumberry Crush is a pretty pink that’s fresh and fun. Always remember to protect your pucker with SPF too! We like MD Formulations Lip Balm because it’s not sticky, but is really hydrating.
If you love your tresses (and treasure that money well-spent in a salon) then you must protect your hair with sun protection too! The sun is not only drying and damaging to the skin but it can wreak havoc on your hair. Parched hair is gross… therefore douse with Alterna Summer Hair RX Spray Shine, it will make your hair shiny and will shield it from those sun rays!
And now you’re ready to put your best Baywatch babe foot forward!
