When hitting the beach, spending the afternoon at a barbecue or relaxing poolside, it's important to find products that will be long-wearing, protect against the harmful rays of the sun and not look too overdone.
Glamour.com recently listed "Fussy-looking makeup at the beach" as one of the biggest beauty mistakes made by many women during the summer months.
The news source recommends wearing lighter makeup with a more natural look, like blendable blush stick, for a natural-looking glow that won't appear cakey or overdone.
But, for those who love the look or shade of their favorite powder blush, applying facial moisturizer underneath the product will help them achieve a warm look, the publication suggests.
And, though many women feel naked without a swipe of mascara or a dab of eyeliner, during a heat wave, a lot of eye makeup can appear overdone. Instead, apply an acrylic-based tubing mascara that won't smear or melt (no matter how sweltering your environs), and go easy on the eyeliner for a fresh-faced look.
