Let me start this off by explaining that I know some people are beach purists, as in no-makeup/no-hair/just be.
I get that, I really do. Until I moved from living by the beach to Hollywood. 30 minutes on a good day (meaning leave my house at 8 am) and ‘holy moley, will I ever get there?!’ on a bad day (leave my house at noon).
That’s when I realized that if I wanted to go to the beach and also hit up a bbq or get a drink after the beach, I’d have to be a little better prepared. ‘Cuz momma ain’t driving home to shower/change/do makeup then driving all the way back for a taco. So I came up with this makeup routine for days I know I’m going right from the beach or pool to the PAR-TAY. I call it my beach-to-bbq-12-hour makeup. I know it might seem like a lot of makeup at first, but trust me, it looks really natural once it’s all on and I don’t have to touch up a thing besides my lips all day.
An additional argument for wearing makeup to the beach is that with all the amazing broad spectrum SPF that now comes in face products, I can proudly say I have not gotten a single sunburn on my face since doing this routine. As a Irish kid, I should get a medal for that.
The basics: Clean looking skin, nuetral matte eyes, and nude rosy lips. The idea being all the shades are natural looking enough that if anything fades it’s not going to look crazy.
