After getting a little tan in the sun, it is the perfect time to copy Taylor Swift and wear that popping red lipstick. But you have to make sure to pick a nourishing brand. There are a ton of options, just look for brands that have lipsticks made with vitamin e or aloe. It is also good to find one that has SPF in it. Of course, make sure to pick the right shade of red for your skin type.

Waterproof mascara

You can’t forget to have great lashes while at the beach! But you don’t want that mascara to run to cause raccoon eyes. Waterproof mascara is easy to find and there are a lot of options. It is true that the more it costs, the better when it comes to mascara. But you don’t need to spend over $30 dollars. The best mascaras I have found are around $20 to $25 dollars.

Shimmering body lotion

Summertime is a great time to go all out and sparkle. Shimming body lotion or oil gives you that sun kissed glow without the tan. Of course, it will look even better with a little tan. One of the best is Tom Ford’s Shimmering Body Oil. Not only does it feel good and smell good, it gives you this beautiful glow that will last all day and night.

Bright nail polish

The right color nail polish is so important in the summer since sandals are a popular choice. You can always go with classic pink, but this is the year to have some fun! A teal or blue green shade is so pretty, especially this time of year. You want to go for a bright color to stand out and look great on those tanned toes.

Make-up removing towellets

After a long day at the beach, you want to make sure to clean your face and get rid of all of that sweat and sand! The best way to make sure you get all of that make-up and dirt off, use make-up removing wipes. Use these before you wash your face with your regular facial cleaner. This way, you will know your face is clean and fresh!
