Waterproof your Summer Beach Look

Summer is officially here!  Beach blankets, bikini’s and of course, swimming.  Want to know how to beach it up all summer and still look super cute?   Check out these awesome waterproof beauty products that won’t cause a makeup meltdown.

Must-Have Bronzer:  Tarte Cosmetics Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer.  This is a must-have product for summer.  There’s nothing sexier than a summer glow.  This bronzer is all natural and has the most gorgeous golden shade.  It has a natural matte sheen and really softens the texture of your skin making you look naturally glowing all day, even at the beach!

Smudge-Proof Mascara:  I am in love with Urban Decay’s new Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara.  This mascara does exactly as it promises.  It stays on all day in and out of the pool, no smudging or flaking, it separates and lengthens.  I’m obsessed with mascara, I constantly have at least three on the go.  Having a waterproof mascara is a summer beach essential.  I wore this mascara, not only at the beach, but I showered with it as well…just to make sure.  It didn’t budge!  Not only did it stay on, but it retained it’s curl.  This mascara is a must-have.  My only complaint is that it didn’t add the amount of volume that I usually look for in a mascara, so I’ll most likely only be wearing this during the day.

Long-Wearing Liner:  Smashbox’s Jet Set Waterproof Liner is an excellent summer accessory.  It glides on smooth, no clumping or cracking, unlink some other gel formula’s.  There’s also a pretty great colour range for all your cute summer dresses this season.

Flushed Cheeks:  It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Benefit Cosmetics, and this product has been a beauty staple in my kits for year.  Benefit’s Posie Tint Cheek Stain is my absolute favourite!  I have more pink blush colours than any human being could possibly need…this pink shade is one of the only colours I need to replace regularly.  It’s such a pretty shade of pink that looks great on all my clients.  It honestly looks just like someone’s made you blush.  It’s got a natural sheen, blends pretty easily and the best part…you can use it on your lips too!  How awesome is that?

Kiss-Proof Lip Gloss:  Smashbox has so many wicked products, I’ve reviewed several in the past.  This Lip gloss is no exception.  Smashbox O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss is a unique lip colour that brings out your lips natural pink shade.  This is crazy, but it honestly works!  I bought this product simply out of curiosity, and because I love pink, and I was so amazed at my lip colour.  It’s a clear gloss, but it instantly made my lips turn a pretty soft shade of pink.  Not only was it such a cute colour, but it lasted all day.  This product is always in my beach bag.

No Shine Foundation:  Clinique Cosmetics Superfit Makeup is a great foundation for all your summer activities.  This foundation instantly wicks away moisture and prevents the build up of shine throughout the day.  It has a light to medium coverage for an even-toned, shine-free application.
