Pool or Beach Makeup Essentials

Pool or Beach Makeup Essentials

Since summer is around the corner (well it’s kicked in for us in WI already), I wanted to write a post on some tips and makeup products you can wear to the pool or beach without having the caked on feeling. I dislike wearing a lot of makeup in the summer because my skin gets so oily and sweaty fast from the hot weather, so if I’m going to wear anything in the summer as far as makeup I want to wear to products that are going to be great for a hot day. Plus wearing your everyday makeup routine won’t cut it for them hot summer days.

Makeup Tips Before Wearing Makeup to the pool or beach:

  1. ALL PRODUCTS MUST BE WATERPROOF! You definitely don’t want to wear makeup that isn’t waterproof.
  2. Foundation – Wear something that is lightweight, sheer and waterproof. 
  3. Powder – You won’t need this but if you want to do touch ups you can definitely carry this with you. 
  4. Highlighter – Don’t wear anything creamy because it’ll just melt off. You want to wear something that will last long and not melt away.
  5. Lipstick – Choose a color that matches your lip color. It’ll make it look more natural. 

Best Makeup Products for the Pool or Beach: 

Face:

Eyebrows:

Lips:

  • HIGH END: Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color and Lorac Breakthrough Performance 
  • DRUGSTORE: Almay Hydracolor lipstick and Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm 

Mascara:

Honestly, some of these products I have used and some are products that other bloggers have sworn that are the best. I can’t see myself wearing too much product on the beach or pool but hopefully, these will help you give an idea of what you can wear. 

What are your favorite beach or pool makeup essentials?

  • So many great picks here thank you for giving different price options too!! Some stuff I am willing to spend $$ on, but others I would rather buy the drugstore version. 😉

  • Love that you included different price levels. I typically go barefaced to the beach/pool with the exception of wearing waterproof mascara and eyeliner (blonde eyelashes and all that). Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Great post and one I’m in definite need of! I’m so glad you recommended some tinted moisturizers because that is on the top of my list. As much as I would prefer to spend these hot days make-up free, my skin does not allow for that.

  • I haven’t tried the high end TOO FACED waterproof mascara and just may need it this summer. And the name of it is genius 🙂

  • I have not tried the Better Than Sex waterproof mascara yet. I love their non waterproof Better Than Sex mascara, so I’m sure this one is great too. I also get very oily in the summer time, so anything that is lightweight and won’t slide off my face is great. I’ll have to check out some of these products you mentioned.

  • I cannot imagine not wearing makeup anywhere lol. The only issue I have is the waterproof eyeliner and mascara because I’m allergic to it. I love your other tips on the foundations, powder, highlighter and lipstick. 🙂

  • Summer just kicked in for us in NY today. Almost 90 degrees. You have some of my faves on this list, including that Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. Love it!

  • This is so helpful! I wonder about makeup when going to the pool or beach. I always think I’m going to have it running down my face once my face gets wet, haha.

  • I honestly rarely ever wear makeup if I’m at the beach or pool, but this is definitely helpful for those who do! Always good to know what products last in the heat 🙂

    I never wear too much make up to the pool/beach but I do always wear waterproof mascara and lately my beauty bakerie lipwhip! 🙂

    • I can’t wait to use the beauty bakerie lip whip out in the pool/beach.

  • Heather Gullett Denniston

    SO hard to get Mascara perfect. The type, consistency and thickness make all the difference. Thanks for sharing what looks like a great brand!

  • I usually don’t wear makeup to the pool, but if I do, it’s a BB cream with SPF and chapstick!

  • I usually never wear makeup to the pool because I want to make sure I can get as tan as possible without any products getting in the way. If I do wear anything, it’s mascara and the Too Faced BTS is my HOLY GRAIL!
