Makeup and the beach, do they go together? Can’t help but wear makeup even for a beach day? That’s alright because there are many ways to apply makeup for the beach, but of course, you need to be extra cautious so that your makeup doesn’t float away due to the heat and water! The trick is to use less makeup and choose the right products. Here are some tips to help you out!
No Foundation, Use BB Cream!
After washing your face and before applying makeup, there is one indispensable step: applying sunscreen. What’s the next step? In any case, do not apply foundation. This will smudge and melt quickly in the heat. This applies to both powder and liquid foundations. If you are not feeling confident enough because of the blemishes on your face, apply a BB cream instead. This cream can be seen as a tinted day cream and make your skin look a little more even. Many BB creams also contain SPF, which can provide additional protection for the skin. Note: BB creams are not a substitute for “regular” sunscreen.
Is It a Good Idea to Apply Concealer?
If you partied the night before or didn’t sleep well, you may have unsightly dark circles under your eyes. How can you hide them if BB cream is not enough? You can also use a concealer for a day at the beach. Apply the concealer lightly only to the areas that really need it. Maybe you will have the opportunity to get some sleep at the beach and your dark circles will disappear quickly. Just make sure you don’t sleep in the sun, because you’ll burn before you know it.
Mascara? No way!
The panda look is not for everyone. Therefore, do not wear water-based mascara. You may want to consider a waterproof mascara. Do you need beautiful, lush lashes for the beach? Then you might want to get eyelash extensions before your beach holiday. Eyelash extensions are made by attaching individual hairs to your eyelashes with a special adhesive. This allows you to sunbathe, play sports, swim, etc., without worry. You will be able to wake up every day with an attractive look.
Get Professional Eyebrow Mapping and Styling
Gorgeous eyebrows are an essential part of good looks and makeup. But are you going to the beach with powder and an eyebrow pencil? Better forget about it! Before your vacation, why not have your eyebrows styled by an eyebrow professional? The eyebrow mapping technique will give your eyebrows a perfect shape so that you don’t need any makeup. Do they still look a little thin? Then you don’t have to worry about it anymore because you can dye your eyebrows.
Eyeshadow can cause weird stains before you know it, so it’s best to avoid it, especially if you like to take a dip in the ocean to freshen up! The skin on your eyelids can usually show some imperfections that you want to erase with eyeshadow, so now it’s just a matter of applying BB cream or bronzer to your eyelids. It will be good. Can’t let go of your eyeshadow? Then choose a lighter eyeshadow color to reduce the chance of staining. Tip: Choose a gold eyeshadow with a slight sheen. It looks great on tanned skin.
Don’t Use Lip Gloss, Use a Colored Lip Balm
Lipstick does not feel right in hot weather or at the beach. It quickly disappears from your lips and can look unpleasant. Besides, did you know that lip gloss makes your lips burn faster than usual? Many beachgoers forget to protect their lips from sunburn. They apply sunscreen to their face but not to their lips. So, be sure to have your nourishing lip balm with SPF ready. It is an ideal all-in-one solution.
