The heat is on and summer is (finally) here. With the rising temps, an au natural face is the preferred beauty staple, especially when you're beachside. However, some of us do opt for cosmetics with our cabana lounging. So, how do you wear makeup without melting or looking too done up for the beach? It's all about fresh skin, and bright pops of color on the lips and eyes.

To show you how to achieve this crucial balance, we road-tested some beach-friendly products, and then shot them on location in the tropical paradise of Turks and Caicos. Of course, no one is saying you have to wear makeup at the beach, but for those of you who want to accentuate your bathing suit and caftan with a cool cat-eye, here are some gorgeous creations that look right at home alongside the sand and sea — and don't require tons of touch-ups.
