A beach day is all about soaking up the sun, splashing in the surf, and taking in the salty, ocean air. Not on our agenda? Constantly reapplying the mascara that's streaming down our face. Of course, we don't need to wear makeup to the beach, but we also recognize that some women feel strange going bare. We hear ya. So, we asked makeup pro Frankie Boyd to give us some pointers on how to best pack our beach (makeup) bags this summer.
"When it comes to beach beauty, I think women look best fresh-faced. If you want a little something extra, though, go for an eye or lip, but try to keep the skin as minimal and clean as possible," Boyd tells us. Ahead, he shows us how to do just that, giving us his recommendations for the best melt-proof, surf-proof, and sun-proof products, plus his tips on how to get the most out of them. Read on for the ultimate hot-weather makeup primer.
