Why wear makeup at the beach? By choosing the right beauty products, it is possible to protect skin while simultaneously enhancing beauty. Many people would think of eye shadow and lipstick but it is not quite the products I would recommend. Summer is coming up and it’s time to share with everyone tips and tricks on summer makeup to the beach!
I interviewed makeup artist, Bobbie Brown, as to what makeup you could wear at the beach. Bobbie Brown explains, “it may seem extreme to wear makeup to the beach but it is good to take the risk to look good and take care of your skin.” Bobbie Brown has a 2011 Makeup collection mainly for the beach. Go to www.bobbiebrown.com to check out the products for summer.
First of all, sunscreen is self-explanatory but another option is using a tinted moisturizer. It is recommended to use tinted moisturizers with an SPF factor above 15 if necessary. I recommend Bobbie Brown Tinted Moisturizer. Foundation is a product that should be put aside for the beach. If you go into the water, it will become blotchy and eventually come off. Foundation is basically a shield between your skin and the sun and you are not able to get any sun on your face. You will end up with a white face and a tan body.
If you were to go into the water, the products you have on your face will obviously come off. But if you were not to go into the water, this is something that could be on your list. Bronzer will give a great effect of being tanner and having a slimmer face. I recommend Rimmel Sun Shimmer because it comes in several shades. I have a personal trick to share with everyone of applying mascara. Using clear mascara is the best option. It will make eyelashes fuller and have volume. During the day, you won’t end up with “raccoon eyes”. Lastly, a touch of gloss always makes a difference!
