Get your beach beauty look sorted

Here at Naked HQ we’re holding onto the hope that it’ll be beach weather soon, but if all else fails we’ll be jetting off to warmer climates for some much-needed sunshine. That means we’ve started to think about our beach look, and if you’re heading off as well here’s a quick run-through of how to get your beach beauty look sorted.

The first thing you’ll need to think about is your makeup, and the key is to keep it as natural as possible. You don’t want to get on the beach only for your foundation to start running down your face, so think tinted moisturisers or BB creams (make sure they’ve got added SPF) for something light and subtle. As for everything else, the same rule applies—you need to keep it light and delicate, and of course always go for waterproof everything. A waterproof mascara, cheek tint and soft lip gloss is all you need to nail the beach babe look, but don’t forget your mani and pedi either. Chipped nail polish won’t win you any admiring glances, particularly in those gorgeous summer sandals, so go for non-chip polishes and a decent top coat to keep your nails looking great.

Then it’s time to think about your hair. Ideally you’ll want to keep it as fuss-free as possible for the ultimate surfer girl look, but even the most casual of styles will take some prep work. You’ll want to head to the salon beforehand to get it chopped into the right style whilst getting rid of any lingering split ends, and make sure to treat your locks to a deep conditioning treatment or two (such as ours) for maximum moisture potential. You’ll want to protect your hair from all those rays too, so be on the lookout for heat protection sprays (they protect your hair from environmental damage as well as the heat from straightening irons) or even hair sunscreens—they’re out there.

Of course, you’ll need to think about your clothing choices if you want everything to come together, but again cool and casual is the order of the day. Think shorts, flip flops, kaftans and bikini tops and you really can’t go wrong, so what are you waiting for? Get your beach look sorted and all that’s left to do is get booking those flights. We can’t wait!
