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

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80 Review and Swatches

I am a big fan of ArtDeco’s Soft Lip Liner Waterproof so decided to pick up a berry/plum shade from the line. Unfortunately, the shade I wanted was sold out so I’ve got a cool toned pink one.

It is called 80 Precious Plum but for me it is a perfect “my-lips-but-better-and-brighter”  colour, my  everyday shade. It is  darker and deeper than my natural lip colour but the tone is very similar, so it works great.

This pencil is soft and  long-lasting, as the name suggests. I love using it with lipsticks, all over the lips for a matte effect of with a gloss on top.

I think it is a fantastic lip pencil for an affordable price.  I am definitely coming back for a

Lancome Bronze Azure Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Take a look at the beautiful Lancome Bronze Azure Collection for summer 2011. I have information about the US release so far and, as you know,  their summer collections by Lancome are a bit different with those that we have here.
