#MOTD: Beach Proof


Does it make me a bit high maintenance for wearing make up to the beach? I suppose it could. I know it wont last and I know it isn’t necessary but it is still a fun way to protect your skin and look your best in all of the beachy pics. Today, I thought I would show you what I would do to get beach ready. I will mostly be using products from my Summer-ize your Make Up Look post so if you’re interested in a bit of a review of each product, that’s where to look!

Firstly, a mattifying moisturizer + SPF from Murad. This stuff is pretty good for keeping your skin shine-free which is something I have to combat when I am out in the sun. I skip the primer and grab a lightweight CC cream to do a bit of tone correcting but keep that lightweight feel. Here, I am using the Smashbox CC cream for even more SPF protection. It is a little dark, but if I mix these two products together, I think it works perfectly.

Next up, I do some basics: brows, mascara, lips. For the brows, I have the Annabelle Waterproof Skinny Brow pencil in Universal Medium which stays all day, sweat or shine. As a mascara, I use whatever waterproof formula I have at that time. I prefer something more natural since I wont be wearing too much make up and I don’t want it to be so crazy obvious if some mascara wears off throughout the day. Right now, I have the NYC Cityproof 24hr Waterproof mascara. On the lips, I have the Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Petal for some not so crazy colour and another layer of SPF but this time, on my lips. It may sound excessive, but I burn very easily and it isn’t a flattering look!

Since this look is pretty minimal at this point, I thought I would add a little something more to the look using the Waterproof Rimmel Natural bronzer. I added a bit to the crease and lid so that my eyes were a little more eye catching and did some bronzing with it as well. Throw on a pair of shades, your bikini and, for me, a ponytail and it’s time to go to the beach!

Til next time, ttfn x

  1. Love the minimalist look! NYC’s been coming out with some awesome mascaras and they are so affordable too! I’ve only tried the Rose FRESH lip balm before, but I’m interested in trying the other colors.

    1. This isn’t a mascara I usually go for (dramatic , super length) but it’s fantastic for minimal make up! The Fresh balms are pretty amazing though they melt easily. Thanks for following! Returning the favour 🙂


  2. I personally wouldn’t go to the beach without a little something on my face as well. The Annabell brow pencil looks so natural on you, a great shade match, I’ll have to look into if they have an ashy shade– I love brows and always looking to try new products. Overall, a perfectly beautiful and natural beach look 🙂
