Waterproof mascara: Diving into the pool for the first time of the year is an amazing feeling. But then you go to wipe your eyes and you smudge your make-up. With waterproof mascara you can count on yourmake-up staying on all day. I would recommend Covergirl’s LashBlast waterproof mascara for the beach.

Make sure to bring lip balm with SPF in it to protect your lips from getting burned and chapped. Maybelline’s Baby Lips has SPF 20 in it and keeps your lips super soft.

It’ll keep your face from melting off. Oil-blotting pads can help with this too, be sure to keep some handy in your beach bag! Make Up For Ever from Sephora is oil-free, water resistant and controls shine, it’s perfect for the beach!
