Look Perfect For Your Beach Date This Valentine’s Day

Look Perfect For Your Beach Date This Valentine’s Day

It can be tricky to get the perfect makeup look for a beach date. It can get too cakey with the wrong layering or unbalanced if your makeup is too bright under the sun. The key to the perfect beach look is to keep it light, bronzed and balanced. Here’s a few tips on how you can get that look on point!


Sunscreen Is Non Negotiable


This is the holy grail tip that’ll save your skin and your makeup look! Slather on as much sunscreen as you can before you hit the beach. Products that contain SPF don’t count - use a proper sunscreen meant for your face and body separately. Use SPF 30 or higher to get full protection from UV rays and don’t forget to reapply every 3 or 4 hours. Sun rays are the biggest cause of aging faster and causing skin problems, so make sure you stay protected!

  • Sunscoop Invisible Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++
  • Minimalist SPF 60 PA ++++ Sunscreen With Antioxidant Silymarin


Set Aside The Powders


Especially if you have oily or combination skin, we know you love powder products but, at the beach, the humidity and heat will definitely blow out powder products. Being exposed to the sun means that your pores are likely to open up, which also means that your makeup will seep into your pores which can cause acne and clogging. Gel, liquid and cream products are easier to wash off and they won’t look cakey when your pores open up or when you reapply. They’re also lighter on your skin and give a more natural look.

Femina Flaunt Suggests


  • Maybelline New York Fit Me Fresh Tint With SPF 50 & Vitamin C 
  • Kay Beauty Creme Blush
  • Makeup Revolution Superdewy Liquid Bronzer



Keep It All Waterproof



This seems like an obvious choice, but it really does make a huge difference. The last thing you want on your date is leaky mascara and washed off brows. You could opt to go mascara less or just use a long stay, waterproof mascara and brow pencil so that you can take a dip in the water without worrying about your makeup! 

Femina Flaunt Suggests

  • Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara
  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Liquid Eyeliner
  • Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil


Pick The Perfect Bronzer

Bronzer is your best friend at the beach! The sun is just going to enhance the bronzer look and make you look like a sculpted, glowy goddess. Choose a bronzer in a natural or slightly tanned shade and make sure it doesn't have any shimmer or it can look harsh and flashy in the sunlight. You can dust the bronzer on your eyelids, above your cheekbones, and on the apples of your cheeks for a fully sculpted and glowy look.


  • Physicians Formula Matte Monoi Butter Bronzer
  • Flower Beauty Heatwave Bronzing Essence
  • L.A. Girl Velvet Contour Bronzer Stick



Lip Balms All The Way


We know you love lip glosses and they look stunning under the sunlight but it’s not the best choice for a beach date. Imagine all the sand and water mixing in with your gloss - it’s just going to end up being a mess. You can opt for a nude matte lipstick too, but reapplying lipstick can look cakey over time with all the water and sand all over it. Your best option is a lip balm or a lip tint. Your lips also need SPF protection so pick one with SPF 30 or more to make sure you have plumpy, damage free lips all through. 



  • Dot & Key Gloss Boss Tinted Lip Balm SPF 30 Vitamin C + E
  • Malibu Lip Balm SPF 30 Vegan
  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm - SPF 30


Now you’re all set to take on that beach date with the perfectly balanced makeup look without worrying about the sand, heat and water messing it all up! Get your perfect beached look at Femina Flaunt Studio Salons!
