The sun is out after a long winter and its that time of the year where it is just right to hit the beach and outdoor events. Even though many people recommend not to wear makeup to the beach, the truth is that you have total liberty to wear it as you please. It's possible to become a beach siren by learning how to apply natural beach makeup.
If you want to have the best time on the beach with light, bright, and bronze makeup, enjoy this guideline to make sure the sun and sand won't stop your glowy glam.
1. Prepare the Skin
Before applying makeup, it's vital to prepare the skin for your beach day. This means cleaning the skin with a gentle cleanser such as PYUNKANG YUL Low pH Pore Deep Cleansing Foam and wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Dermatologists always recommend applying sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or higher daily, even if you're not going to the beach. Always apply sunscreen every two hours or as soon as you finish swimming or sweating.
We recommend using a beauty product such as COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream with an SPF of 50+. It has a lightweight consistency, so it's ideal for wearing it under makeup, and it's a terrific daily sunscreen to add to your skincare routine.
Remember, applying sunscreen is the last step in your skincare routine after cleansing, toning, and moisturising.
2. Use a Primer
Beauty experts recommend investing in a top-quality makeup primer if you want your makeup to last longer. Always apply primer after sunscreen and before makeup. Primers are terrific for keeping makeup in place.
You can try HEIMISH Artless Glow Base is a lightweight makeup primer with luminous glowing effects. It also provides sun protection with SPF 50+, which makes it the perfect beauty product for summer. This primer is ideal for those people with dry skin thanks to its profound, nourishing, hydrating effects.
Since you're going to spend the day under the sun, it's imperative to use a concealer that provides you full coverage, such as THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++.
THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++ is available in three shades: clear beige, rich beige, and contour beige. This concealer is high-quality, so that you can wear it instead of foundation.
4. Powder Foundation
If you need more coverage, make sure to use a powder foundation instead of a cream-based foundation. Powder foundations have a higher chance against heat and humidity. Make sure to use a light product that absorbs into the skin.
This powder foundation is formulated with 10ppm of Aqualicia extract, which supports the hydration and coolness of your skin. It comes in three shades: honey, beige, and ivory.
The MOONSHOT Micro Setting Fit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ is a must-have for summer.
5. Wear Waterproof Eye Products
Eye makeup can easily smudge during beach days, mainly if you go for a swim or sweat too much. It's a wise idea to skip the mascara and instead curl your eyelashes thoroughly with an eye curler such as SHU UEMURA Eyelash S Curler. Curling your eyelashes will create volume and length without wearing mascara.
If you want to apply eyeliner, we recommend using it only on the inner edge of the eyelid and waterline. Doing this will give you a natural definition all day long. Don't forget to wear powder eyeshadow before using eyeliner, as this helps the eye makeup last longer.
Our favorite waterproof eye makeup products are:
- MACQUEEN Waterproof Pen Eyeliner comes in three shades: deep black, deep brown, and brown-black. This waterproof eyeliner creates deep and defined eye lines. It comes with magnet-like adherence to hold up for the entire day.
- ETUDE HOUSE Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara withstands water and sweat while holding up a curl for long hours. This mascara adds a natural curl while thickening your lashes.
If you want to add glow and warmness to your skin, it's great to apply bronzer. Bronzers are excellent for making you look fresh and natural. Beauty experts recommend wearing bronzer on your forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose.
Since you're going to spend the day on the beach, make sure to use a powder bronzer such as TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Art Class by Rodin Shading.
The TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Art Class by Rodin Shading comes with varying shades that you can easily blend to achieve a natural look. This contour kit is formulated with vitamins to keep your skin healthy and moisturise.
