How To: Makeup At The Beach

While we all want to avoid looking like sweaty football players with black stains running down our faces, we do still want to look nice at the beach. Let’s talk about how to make that work.

First of all – and this may be obvious – skip the heavy eyeliner, foundation, and eye shadow. Instead choose a tinted moisturizer with SPF, clear mascara, and your favorite lip shimmer for a touch of color.

Here are my favorites for each.

Arbonne’s Sheer Finish Tinted Moisturizer ($38) offers SPF 15 sun protection and optimal moisture balance so your skin doesn’t dry out during a long day at the beach. Make sure to reapply about every 2-3 hours to take advantage of both. If ordering online, use consultant ID 12586, then forward me your order confirmation. I give all All Things Chic readers a 20% discount via refund with code ATC.

Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara (~$5) can be found in the aisle of your local grocery store or drugstore. For a ridiculously low price, this clear mascara will lengthen and define your lashes without leaving them brittle like waterproof mascaras. Will you look like a movie star on the runway with this? No. But it’ll give you that little extra something to make your eyes pop.

Also available at your local grocery store or drugstore for about $5? This Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer. Available in 12 flattering shades, these 100% natural lip shimmers will nourish and moisturize dry lips, invigorate with peppermint flavor, and add a little brightness to the only part of your face you want to look bright and colorful on a beach day. Make sure to reapply liberally throughout the day.
