Heat Proof Makeup
  1. Clio Razor – This is such a great product for only $10 at CVS! This small and portable electric razor is perfect for touching up under your arms and around your bikini line.
  2. Shiseido Sunscreen SPF 42 – This has become an every day product for me. This SPF 42 has zero sunscreen smell and is made to sink like silk into the skin. I put this on once, along with my tinted moisturizer and didn’t burn a bit. I was in the sun and water allll day long.
  3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil – Free SPF 20 – This tinted moisturizer has a rather thick and sticky texture, but this proves great for the water & heat. I checked out my complexion at the end of the day and could tell I still had coverage.
  4. MAC Cream Blush For Your Amusement – This blush is amazing! Unfortunately, limited edition as part of the Playland Collection 2014. This light pinky-peach cream blush is stunning. Stays perfectly on place with a translucent powder over top. 
  5. NYX Translucent HD Powder – Amazing value! Comparable to Makeup Forever’s HD Powder. I actually think this sets my under eye concealer better. A little goes a long way and is great for light non-cakey coverage.
  6. Physicians Formula BB Bronzer SPF 20 – The best thing about this bronzer is that it offers SPF. The color doesn’t blow me away, but it’s not too orange and I like the added sun protection.
  7. Maybelline Falsies WATERPROOF Mascara – The regular falsies is a tried and true favorite. The waterproof version is just a good – just harder to take off at the end of the night (try using a makeup oil like MAC’s Cleanse Off Oil). This mascara stays put…even through a jump into the water!
  8. Jack Black Lip Balm Black Tea & Blackberry SPF 20 – This balm is very hydrating…perfect for a hot day in the sun. Always remember to protect your lips!
Sometimes there’s no better place to be than on the water! Whether you’re basking in summer rays at the lake or taking in the sun & and sand at the beach, heat & water friendly makeup products are essential.
First, let’s make a note that makeup is not necessarily a necessity when poolside, lakeside or beach side. 
I’ve enjoyed many bright vacation days without a drop of foundation or a swipe of mascara, but if you choose to paint, powder and gloss, there are many great options! You don’t have to cake on your base or pencil in dark eyeliner to look glamorous on the water. Less is most definitely more.
This past weekend my fiance and I spent a relaxing weekend on the lake with newly engaged friends. I decided to test out some new products so that I could accurately post about the results.
