FOTD: My Beach Face (Short Tutorial)

How many of you gorgeous ladies where makeup to the beach or pool parties? I’m guilty as charged! Since I’ve been spending a lot of time at the beach this month, I wanted to share some tips on how to get the Beach Face look.

The key to getting away with this is less is more. Here are a few tips to achieve that “no-I’m-not-so-insecure-that-I’m-wearing-makeup-to-the-beach” look (just kidding!):

  1. APPLY YOUR SUNSCREEN. SPF 30+
  2. Wear a sheer base, just to even out your skin tone. This is where we can put our favorite BB/CC Cream and Tinted Moisturizers to use.
  3. If your sheer base isn’t enough to reduce imperfections, start spot concealing. Dab concealer on imperfections using the pads of your index/middle finger.
  4. I like to brighten up under my eyes.
  5. Use cream bronzers/blushes. I feel like cream products look more natural and blend easier than powder.
  6. Apply your bronzer to the high points of your face. Forehead, tops of cheeks, nose, chin. This is where the sun naturally hits. Blend with a brush or your fingers.
  7. Dab blush onto the apples of your cheeks and blend outward into the bronzer.
  8. Use waterproof mascara on your eyes or better yet, if you’re on vacation get lash extensions!
  9. Pencil in your brows with a waterproof brow pencil, using short feathery strokes.
  10. Clear balm/gloss for your lips.
