Summer means time to hit the beach, but what happens when collegiettes perfected beauty look hits the waves? Well it might not stay so perfected. To ensure your beauty look lasts, while splashing around, water proofing your makeup is a must. Don’t end up with eyeliner streaks down your cheeks! Check out our water proofing tips and tricks below.
1. Stay away form heavy powders and matte formulas. Instead use tinted moisturizers and cream-based products for longer staying power. The slew of BB (and now CC) creams available will do the trick. Try Maybelline’s version or Boscia’s take on the cream, sold at Sephora. These products are usually made with a SPF, to protect you from the sun’s rays.
2. Use products that reduce lines and pores, so that you can employ minimal makeup. If you use less, there is only less to lose. Try Avon’s magIX Face Perfector, Lancome’s Translucence Mattifying Pressed Powder from Sephora, of Givenchy’s Mister Radiant. Apply to a freshly washed face for a clearer, smoother complexion.
3. No need to stray so far from your regular makeup routine with a helpful holding spray. Try spraying some of Clarins Fix' Make-up Mist or Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray after your regular makeup routine and get ready to hit the beach!
4. Use waterproof mascara, but don’t let it dry between coats to prevent clumping, For some larger than life lashes try using Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Waterproof Mascara or Urban Decay’s Ultra Waterproof Mascara.
