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:

Face

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.

Eyes

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

Urban Decay Naked Palette. Yes, Now I Have It, Too

 

Can you guess what I’ve got? Well, I guess you can if you’ve read the name of this post 😉 I wanted to write something like “I’ve got Naked or similar” but I don’t want to attract any perverts.

So yes… I’ve got myself a Naked palette!

Why?!

I do a lot of makeovers in my free time both for weddings, special occasions and just for my friends so I though it would save a lot of space in my kit.  And yes, let me tell you, it’s a great palette to have with you. Plus a lot of girls love it and some are even asking if I have the Naked palette.

See what I mean? And how gorgeous is my model, right?!
