Beach & Holidays Makeup Tips

Summer is the time when we all are enjoying our vacations or just the weekends near the pool or by the ocean. While some women are more than happy to be bare-faced, some still want to enhance their look with the help of the makeup.

But what beauty products are the best for the water and sun involved activities?

Here are some recommendations:


Full on foundation-concealer-powder face is never a good idea on the beach. Instead always apply a sun-protective cream of your choice. Avene Very High Protection Emulsion Very Water Resistant 50+ SPF is a good one.


As we know, eye brows frame the face, so never underestimate their importance. To make yours look groomed and polished try using Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Brow, the formula is long-lasting and water resistant, so it will stay on for hours without smudging.

According to various surveys, mascara is the most popular makeup item, so a lot of women don’t want to be without it even on the beach. But what if your favorite mascara is not available in a waterproof version? Anastasia Beverly Hills have the answer – with their Lash Genius, waterproof mascara top coat, you won’t end up with running mascara.
What about the eye liner, you may ask? Luckily, the beauty industry has a lot of options to offer. You could try gel or liquid liners, but it is better to stick with long-lasting pencils for the vacation. You don’t have to be so precise, plus, with the pencil, you can really work in the roots of the lashes, this will make your eyes look more defined. Those who love classic look – could always use black or brown, but why not trying something more fun, like shimmering turquoise, electric purple or vibrant lime? Recommendations: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencils, Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Pencils, BECCA Eye Tints, used as a liner.


Finally, the best products for a pop of color on the cheeks and lips are those two-in-one water based stains. BECCA make fantastic ones. Their Beach Tints are a cult product for a reason. After all, Australians do know how to make good waterproof makeup.
Whatever product you decided to use, make sure that you avoid powdery and very creamy textures, instead go for water-resistant stains and water-based light formulas. And, of course, have a wonderful and relaxing holiday!

    I love the colors of eyeliner that UD offers. I have been a fan of colored liners for a while
