Beauty Beat. Get Beach Ready. Waterproof Your Face

June 8, 2009 • Beauty

Yes, it's almost summer and we will be frolicking at the beach and pool, but what about our makeup? Yes, it is most important for me to have some makeup on even during the smoldering months of summer at the pool and beach. I still need a great foundation and the perfect waterproof eye makeup. Needless to say this may also apply just to keep makeup from melting during the summer anyways. There is a solution for us summer bunnies, who like to remain glam!
For spot treatment start with a waterproof concealer like Lancome Effacernes. No need for heavy foundation, when you can spot conceal where needed. However, if you do need the extra coverage apply MAC Face and Body, for sheer coverage without the heavy feel of creamy foundation. This sheer foundation can be applied to the face with your fingers or sponge for a flawless complexion. It's even great for areas like your legs and arms that may need covering.
For all of your waterproof eye needs, try Makeup Forever Aqua Essential Waterproof Eye Set. It contains everything you need to keep your gorgeous eye makeup in place! It contains Eye Seal, which makes any powder waterproof and  and transforms into a liquid liner), Sens’Eyes (waterproof sensitive eye makeup remover), Waterproof Lengthening Mascara,Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, and the gorgeous Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Turquoise.
For color, I am loving Benetint's new spin to the best seller and cult fave Benetint, the new, Posie Tint ! Not keen to red, this pretty petal pink color is perfect for just a flush of color. It's gorgeous on the apples of your cheek and even on your lips.
If you are one that cannot go without her bronzer because you haven't caught the sun long enough, try Cargo's Water Resistant Bronzer. You cannot fail with this bronzer. It gives the right amount of healthy dose of warm color for your skin. Apply it sparingly around the temples, forehead, bridge of nose, and chin area. It's a summer tan in a can!

  1. Great post! I’m wondering, though, if I’m the only person who has issues with MakeUp Forever’s Aqua Eyes liners. They work *great* until I sharpen them. Then it’s as though I’ve exposed some kind of inferior, softer layer of color — it smudges and comes off just like regular liners. Anyone else experience this problem?
