At the moment we, in the UK are having a ‘heat wave’, which to be fair is pretty rare for the UK so everyone is obviously hitting the beach (except me who is either working or sat behind a computer screen). So I thought I would combine the two and tell you about what I think are beauty essentials for the beach, or when you go on holiday.
I know people may not want to take makeup to the beach, but when you go on holiday if you only want to take minimal amounts then this is what I recommend you taking.
First is a moisturizer. This is SUPER SUPER SUPER important. When your out in the sun and warm air your skin will dry out. Without the moisturizer your run the risk of damaging your skin and it could lead to flaky skin on your face.
Next is water proof mascara. Nobody wants to be bothered by black streaks running down your cheeks when your having fun in the sea of pool, so waterproof mascara will keep your lashes looking voluminous, extra black and curled like your wearing normal mascara.
I have also chosen powder and gel for your eyebrows. I always go out with ‘my eyes brows on’ because I feel like it really nicely shape’s your face. This year I am actually getting mine dyed before I go because then I don’t have to worry about it but if you can’t afford to do that then this is the best option. Using the gel on top on the powder will just seal it in place.
Finally my fav is the Sun In. This is a natural hair lightener if you have mousy to dark blonde hair. Luckily I do but I have also seen people using it on dark hair to create lush looking highlights! Basically you spray it on your hair, and the heat activates the bleach causing your hair to lighten. It obviously works best in the sun but if you still have some left after the summer it works when you spray it on wet hair and dry it with a hairdryer!
