The following is guest post by Dee from The Candid Commentary: As much as I love the summer, the thought of my makeup running all over my face due to the heat is enough to make me cry! If I’m not going out to some special occasion, I’m all for low-key summer-time makeup. Just accentuating my features without going overboard. No one wants to feel more than the skin their in during the summer!
So to prep for beach-friendly beauty, take a look at these great products that’ll stay put while the rest of you is melting!
Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15: I’m a big fan of moisturizer — and you should be too if dry skin is a problem. Stila has a hit with this fabulous concoction that not only hydrates my skin but evens tones and slight imperfections — plus gives you SPF 15. Another great choice is Benefit’s ‘YOU REBEL’ Tinted Moisturizer – a bit more coverage and still light as a feather.
BECCA Cosmetics Eye Tint: If there’s any cosmetic that gets me excited, it’s one that can provide a fast and fabulous eye look. This cream glides on and settles into a fine powder, filled with pigment. It’s perfect for after pool/beach activities and stays right where you applied it!
Huge Lips, Skinny Hips by Purple Lab: The perfect sheer gloss for picnics on the beach and bar-hopping at night. With it’s non-stick formula (great for windy days) and naturally plumping Vitamin B3, it’s a necessary companion for any beach bum.
CoverGirl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara: I’m a girl who’s always on the hunt for great mascara since I wasn’t born with long lashes. Combining it’s JUMBO-sized brush and water resistant formula, it’s thee mascara for any bathing beauty.
Stila Convertible Color: When it comes to the summer, I prefer to stay light — which doesn’t necessarily mean I have to stick with a traditional powder blush. Though I am a hugely devote to NARS blush – Convertible Color from Stila has become a quick favorite of mine. The formula is light weight and still packed with color! Also try Maybelline’s Dream Mousse Blush or CoverGirl + Olay’s Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush!
Pacifica’s Solid Perfumes: Ever since I tried Pacifica’s Solid Perfumes, I’ve been a fan. The travel-sized little tins are small enough to fit in your pocket, wristlet, or beach bag for an instant burst of scent whenever you need it. The formula is long-lasting and stays while you sweat away the day! My personal fave: Hawaiian Ruby Guava!
