Coastal Living: Beauty for the Beach

Posted by Marissa on Tue, 06/11/2013 - 4:56 PM

Memorial Day Weekend has us all excited not only because we can finally head to the beach, but also because it marks the start of bathing suits, flip flops, white pants, and of course beachy makeup. Sun kissed skin pairs perfectly with tinted cheeks and sea blue eye makeup. Check out some of our favorite products for getting the perfect beach looks to soak up the sun, stroll on the boardwalk or hit the bars with friends.


 

For the perfect peachy cheek, sweep on Chanel’s Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Malice, or blend Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Stick in Golden Rose Glow onto cheeks for a more sun-flushed look.

Try Chanel’s Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Blue Jean for a navy eye. Wear alone for a subtle touch of beach glam, or create a blue smoky eye for a bolder statement that’s perfect for a night out. A fun twist on the classic brown smoky eye, this look can easily be created by smudging the Blue Jean liner and applying Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Lahgons.

For a brighter sea foam eye, try lining the bottom lid with Pupa’s Folk Waves Color Shine Eyeliner in teal, or Pupa’s Multiplay Triple Purpose Eye Liner in #32 for a more green color. Finish off this vibrant look by adding some eyeshadow from Pupa’s 4 Eyes Palette Ombretti Multiuso in #1. If you don’t have time (or don’t want to wear a full face of makeup to the beach), Pupa’s Jeans n’ Roses Satin Finish Baked Eyeshadow in #1 or #2 are perfect for adding a pop of color with ease.
