No-Fuss Vacation Makeup

Beach Makeup

As you read this post I’m probably sitting with my toes in the sand on a beautiful beach in Florida, relaxing and soaking up the sun. I thought you might be interested in seeing what makeup I decided to pack for this trip. Here is a peek into my beauty bag.

When it comes to face bases, I’m keeping it simple this vacation. A tinted sunscreen is perfect for giving protection while at the same time evening out y skin tone. I’m currently using the Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40 (1.4 fl oz, $22) which does a pretty good job at both. It doesn’t have enough coverage to hide blemishes so I’m also bringing my trusted Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer (0.25 fl oz, $23). To finish my base I plan on applying a light dusting of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light (0.35 oz, $45) to keep shine at bay in the hot weather.

I’m also bringing the NARS blush in Deep Throat (0.16 oz, $30) on this trip for whenever I’m looking for a nice flush of color on my cheeks. This peach shade is perfect for a beach vacation. It comes across as coral on my skin tone, especially once my face gets a bit of a tan, which makes this a great summer blush.

No makeup look is complete without mascara. The humid Florida weather calls for a water-resistant or waterproof formula like the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (0.29 fl oz, $24). If your favorite mascara happens to not be waterproof the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat (0.19 fl oz, $21) may be for you. Apply one swipe of this clear topcoat over dry mascara to make it waterproof. Brilliant.

To complete my look I’m packing the Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20 in Petal Glow (0.15 oz, $8.99). It gives just a hint of color while also providing sun protection for your lips.

To finish off my makeup application I plan on using the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (1 fl oz, $14). A few spritzes of this setting spray and makeup won’t budge even in the Florida heat and humidity.

That’s it: a fast, easy, and no-fuss makeup look that works great in hotter temperatures while also ensuring sufficient sun protection.

  1. Sounds like the perfect amount. I always end up over packing and never using any of my makeup until we decide to go out to dinner one night and I’m burned like hell.

    Have fun at the beach! What’s your favorite? I love the Gulf and St. George Island will forever be my favorite:)

    1. Yeah, so far so good. I’ve been going completely makeup free most days, aside the tinted SPF of course. I also ended up bringing my Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, just in case we end up going out to eat…

      We’re staying on the Atlantic coast near Melbourne Beach. It’s a pretty neat area, close enough to Orlando to go to some of the amusement parks. I haven’t been to the Gulf yet so that’s still on my to-travel list.
