How to Wear Beach Makeup

Great Day! Are you spending your summer at the beach of by the pool? Per New York City makeup artist Gucci Westman, a full face of makeup just looks wrong at the beach or by the pool. Any products you put on should be light and sheer-you want to look like a summer version of yourself.

Protect you skin. Before you apply any makeup, slather on a generous coat of sunscreen. Give it at least 20 minutes to soak in-it needs to dry for full
effectiveness and so that anything you put on top won’t smear.

Forget flawless. In humid weather, anything that is creamy or greasy-like foundation or concealer is going to smudge almost instantly. If you absolutely can’t imagine going without coverage, try mixing a bit of foundation into your sunscreen and apply it that way. Also, use a
translucent powder to combat shine. If you need to cover a blemish, use a stiff concealer brush or a Q-tip to dab a little pressed powder onto the area.

Until next time…Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think? Have a wonderful day!
