Finding that dream swimsuit to bring to the beach isn’t the only tough decision you’re going to make. Kikay kit crisis, anyone? After all, glam doesn’t stop just because you’re out of town. But your ordinary makeup can’t stand up to all that sweat and seawater, that’s why we’ve got you covered with a list of bonafide, beach-proof and Calyxta-approved products for you to toss into your beach bag ASAP.
While mostly everyone is keeping it casual at the beach, you can still add a little glam and drama to your look. Get a ‘lifted winged look’ with one of Maybelline’s most popular mascaras, and lashes that even a Victoria’s Secret Angel would approve of. Its unique, push-up wing brush sweeps lashes sideways while lifting from the roots. Plus—it’s waterproof!
In this grueling heat, lip and cheek stains like this are your BFF. Light, and quick and easy to use, they’ll last from sun up to sun down whether you’re sweltering in the city or kicking back at the nearest beach locale. They’re also perfect for that trendy, monochrome look everyone’s going for. Plus, this cute stain is skin-loving, organic, and vegan.
Heavy makeup at the beach? Never! But looking naturally flushed and gorgeous with color (with just one product) is as easy as getting a great tan. Trust me. With a non-drying formula, just swipe this on your lips for a pucker-worthy pout, or dab lightly on cheeks and blend away with your fingers.
For voluminous, va-va-voom lashes that’ll stay put no matter how long you decide to splash about, look no further. Waterproof, smudge-proof, and with a super smooth formula, lashes are lifted to the heavens while remaining soft and fluttery all day long. And by all day, we mean it!
With a formula that promises 16 hours of wear, this lippie will stay on from the moment you hit the beach, until you crawl into bed to dream about doing it all over again. The Triple Matte Gel Topcoat sits light and comfortable on lips, but holds on like nobody’s business. Its arrow-shaped tip also helps you shape and outline your lips to precise perfection.
