Ditto, its all just gonna wash off in the surf anyway. Waterproof sunscreen is all you need for the beach.

I agree! Sunscreen and some SPF lip balm is all I need. I’ve tried the makeup thing and it just turns out to be too much of a hassle.. especially if it just washes away.

But I guess if you’re just sitting in the sand, hanging out, and not doing anything, a LITTLE makeup might be nice.

I completely agree, especially because I go to the beach to surf, dive, or snorkle. Waterproof sunscreen, and don’t forget your lips!

Bringing a bottle of water is essential, though. Yes, you’ll drink it, but getting the salt water off of your face is pretty refreshing.

I usually don’t wear any, even though I go to the pool instead. It’s a bit of a waste, even if i’m not going in the water… but I swear by sunscreen so I do not burn!

Either a tinted moisturizer or a lightweight powder foundation. Also, I’d wear some powder contour, fill my eyebrows in, and of course my Jack Black SPF 25 lip balm. :]

Besides loads and loads of sunscreen, water resistant concealer under my eyes, waterproof mascara, and something like painterly paint pot that just evens out the color of my lid, and a tinted lip balm

Hey! I would only wear sunscreen and add some waterproof mascara and chap stick. It’s too hot in Florida to wear anymore. haha 🙂

I didn’t either lol I’ve always just used sunblock and never given any other thought to it haha!

Word! I guess I’m odd, but I just don’t like the feeling of sunlight on my skin. And tan is overrated, porcelain white skin would be just fine for me.

Amen to that! I am right there with you. I went to Punta Cana with family in Jan and stayed in the shade with vampire worthy sunblock the whole time! Its lily white flesh for me too!

Lots of sunblock and spf lipbalm. But if i’m on vaca and hitting the beach after b’fast/brunch/excursion etc them i may wear some lipstick/ a tinted lipbalm.

I usually don’t wear any makeup to the beach, but nowadays, I think I’d opt for tinted moisturizer, concealer, and brow powder. Even if most of it did wash off, I do want to look decent before I get into the water.

sunscreen, powder, waterproof mascara, gel eyeliner (for my upper waterline), korres lipbutter

I find it completely unnecessary to wear makeup to the beach/pool… Whatever. I only wear my sunscreen and a lipbalm which contains SPF 20 like MACs suntints. If we’re talking about a party at the beach, then hings change… 😉

I’m using tinted sunscreen cause I have those brown spots and during summer they are much more visible and I need to cover them up, waterproof mascara, and if there’s a beach party, some hilighting powder and lip balm with SPF

Sunscreen of course and If I have any spots or blemishes, I cover them with a waterproof concealer. I only put a not too bold MUFE aqua cream, maybe #5 on my cheeks because I’m too pale and a spf lip balm. If my lids are dark or red I put a primer on only or I may wear a MAC paintpot like Bare Study or a MUFE aqua cream #13.

absolutly no make-up on the beach or at the pool! like most girls here said: just sunblock and a nice hairstyle that stays put troughout the day and I’m good to go.
the only thing I would use is waterprove mascara, but as my lashes HATE waterproof mascara and it’s such a PITA to remove no matter what I use, I’ll just skip it.
