It’s almost time for that quick girls-getaway and you have to have a cute mug

So, summer is (sort of) officially here, huh? You’re probably ready to load up with the girls, pack your favorite bikinis and splash away the weekend! While makeup and the oceanic waters have a reputation to not get along, we still want you to look naturally glowy as you purposefully run in the sand towards that cutie you spotted at the hot dog stand.


And here’s how you can get that sultry, natural glow in 3 easy steps:


Step 1: Skip the foundation and go for a tinted moisturizer.

Even if the foundation is waterproof, it’ll probably rub off anyway. Just don’t forget to add a layer of SPF under your moisturizer if it doesn’t already come with one.


Step 2: Find a really good orange or coral blush.

This will instantly make your skin look dewy and sun kissed, but also natural. If you want, add a dab to your eyes. But not too much, we skip shadows to prevent the water from washing it into our eyes.


Step3: Finally, dig in with an intense waterproof mascara.

This you can use without worrying about the smudge. Our top favorite is the Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara
