Cake by the ocean?  How about make-up by the ocean…..because bathing suits are outfits, right?  For sure!  There are so many cute ones out there, and when paired with the perfect shoes, hat, cover-up, and accessories, swimwear is a huge part of warm weather fashion.  So, while you’re looking so fresh in your swimwear style this summer, don’t leave out the makeup products that can take your look up a notch.  I prefer to stay with a natural look when headed out to the pool, or to the beach, but, I DO put my face on.

After sharing some pictures from our spring break adventure at the Opryland Hotel, and their water park SoundWaves, I received several questions about my makeup product choices and application.  So, I’m sharing the list right here, along with how I apply each product, in week’s episode of Beauty Tip Tuesday.


Niko Dual Foundation:  This is my everyday powder foundation, but it’s also perfect for pool side.  Be sure to apply your SPF underneath, as well as your everyday moisturizer.

Urban Decay Brow Finish:  Love this stuff!  It’s clear, but thickens the brows that you have for a nice natural look.  It also holds those babies in place.

Becca Shimmering Skin Pefector:  I apply this to my cheeks, nose, forehead and eyes.  Yes, eyes!  I love this highlighter for doubling as eyeshadow.  It gives just enough natural color and shimmer to make your eyes pop by the pool.

L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof:  My favorite go to mascara is also made in waterproof.  So, go for it.  Apply it all over those lashes and swim those laps!

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm:  My very favorite lip balm.  It’s got just enough color for laying by the pool for beautiful natural looking smackers.
