Do you wear makeup when you go to the beach?

Beautiful With Brains says: I think wearing a full face of makeup is a bit too much for the beach. I very rarely go there but when I do I usually go barefaced, apart from sunscreen and lip balm with SPF of course! But if I decide to wear makeup I keep it to a minimal: concealer when needed, lipgloss and sometimes waterproof mascara.

  1. Yes I do, but also very minimal. Concealer where I need it and a nice pink lipgloss. Maybe a dash of blush and bronzer too so I look healthy and shimmery under the sun :-)

  2. Joanne: minimal makeup is best for the beach. It makes you look nice and you don’t have to worry too much about it getting ruined because of heat and water.

    Dao: I agree. A full face of makeup at the beach is too much. Just a little is ok and makes you look nice but no point in wearing more, it will probably just get ruined soon.

    Anastasia: lol. I don’t like the beach either and, living in a coastal town, when I say that, people look at me like I’m an alien. You’d think I have suddenly turned green or something. I only go a couple of times a year and only when my friends force me to. I don’t think makeup at the beach is necessary, sunscreen is all you really need. But I was curious to know what other people wear when they go.

    Fabulessbeauty: me too! Just the essential is always best at the beach imo.

  3. The closest beach from where I live is pretty nasty…so there is no way I am going there in the first place. (And I tan just from walking around, beach tanning is unnecessary for me as well.)

    Well, if I go to the pool to swim (I don’t think my figure is worth flaunting anyway)…It seems pretty silly to wear makeup anyway…

  4. I rarely go to the beach as well because the nearest one is pretty far from where I stay. I normally just put on sunscreen and go to the beach straight unless my skin is way to fugly to begin with(it sometimes happen when my skin decides to go havoc). I would then put on some mineral foundation and concealer.

  5. Citrine: it’s a shame the beach isn’t nice where you live. I hate it when people don’t take proper care of it. Beaches here are quite clean but still, I don’t like to go.
    I agree, if you know you’re gonna swim, there is no point in wearing makeup at all.

    Cyndi: that’s a pity! I agree with you. Unless skin is behaving really badly sunscreen is all that’s needed.

    Nikki: me too! :)
