The Best Beach Makeup Tips Every Girl Needs to Know

Best Beach Makeup Tips

Makeup at the beach: yea or nay? We happen to think the right beach makeup can amplify your sunniest, most beautiful you. So how do you define that fine line between easy, breezy beach beautiful and just plain overdone and too over-the-top for a beach day? It’s pretty easy, actually. Let us help you find the perfect beach beauty for your face with these makeup tips every summer lovin’ beach girl needs to know.

Choose tinted moisturizer with high SPF.Sunscreen

Skip the heavy foundations and choose a tinted moisturizer with SPF instead. Foundations are just too unnatural and easily noticeable in the bright sunlight of a beach day. Tinted moisturizer is light enough for the beach yet gives you even coverage while still keeping a fresh, natural-looking face. Your other option is to take your favorite foundation and blend it into some of your own moisturizer or sunscreen for a quick and easy DIY tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizer, whether you buy it or blend it yourself, is the best base for evening out your complexion without looking like you’re even wearing makeup at all.


Keep it neutral.

Neutral tones look most natural at the beach. Natural-toned bronzers, pale pinks, and fresh dewy faces are what beach makeup is all about. Stick to products that amplify your skin tone, highlight your best features, and brighten your face. Subtlety is key for a summer beach look that brings out your natural, sunny self. 


Go with waterproof makeup products.

This is a no-brainer when it comes to beach makeup. Who wants to spend the time applying beauty products that won’t last once you immerse yourself in the coastal elements of sun, sand and sea? Not us! There are so many quality waterproof makeup products on the market from eyebrow pencils, eyeliners and mascaras to concealers, eye creams and lip liners. They’re not only waterproof but sweatproof, too. Apply smarter not harder!


Keep it natural.

Whatever makeup you’re applying, keeping it natural is best. Save the dramatic makeup for your nights out on the town. Tone down your makeup so that your natural beauty and pretty self can shine through. Everyone looks better with beach-blown hair, a naturally sun-kissed face, and a youthful dewy complexion. Stick the basics of beach beauty and you’re on the right track. Think surfer girl style!


Choose to protect your lips with tinted lip balm.Tinted Lip Balm

Sun protection for lips is very necessary. Why not do it right with a little hint of color? Skip heavy lipsticks and thick glosses that will only slide off in the heat and attract sand. Opt for tinted lip balm that provides SPF to keep your lips protected and hydrated plus a sheer hint of color. Another good option is to use a lip stain for stay-put color and top it off with a little lip balm for sun protection and a little shine.
