It's summer time! Time to trade in the desk for a lounge chair and ditch the computer in favor of a beachside page-turner! While a summer vacation is a great time to ditch the blow dryer (giving your hair a break from heat styling) and go low-key on the makeup (giving your skin some time to breathe), we understand you still want to look your best. That's why we've compiled our best tips for seaside beauty, to keep you looking great in humidity and high tide!
Sunscreen: Your makeup won't look very good if the skin it's applied to is the color of a lobster (sorry, lobsters). Protect your skin from sun damage by always, always, always wearing an SPF when you go outside. Thanks to L'Oréal Paris' Sublime Sun range, there is sure to be an SPF to suit every skin tone!
Moisturize: A mix of sun, sand, and seawater can be hard on the skin. Every evening, use the most nourishing moisturizer you have and apply it head to toe.
A melt-proof base: While it's a great option to take a few days off from makeup entirely, if you must apply a base, it's best to opt for a light one. Tinted moisturizers, like BB and CC creams are all great options as they blend well into the skin rather than creating a layer over it. Another option is to use a light powder only where you need it.
Get the glow: Let your skin glisten in the summer sun by applying a luminous bronzer to the high points of your face (where the sun would naturally hit). Even if you keep your face out of the sun, bronzer will give you that sunkissed glow. It's also a great way to bring warmth to the face without applying any other makeup!
Waterproof: Opt for waterproof products as much as you can- specifically mascara and eyeliner. When sweat mixes in, it can cause the product to break down, and you don't want to walk around Rome all day with racoon eyes.
There you go, our best vacation-friendly beauty tips. Have fun!
