What You Need for a Beach Makeup Look

To get a simple beach makeup look, you need a few things:

When it comes to the makeup for a barely there look, you really don’t need a lot of product. Less is more! Here is what you need for a simple beachy glow:

Wide Awake Edit
Erase Edit

Rewind Edit


Your makeup tools are just as important as the makeup itself! Here are some makeup brushes you need for a barely there makeup look:

How to Get a Beach Makeup Look

Now that you have all the products, how do you get a beach makeup look that won’t rub off?? Here’s what you need to do to get the look:

  • Apply sunscreen- Apply a layer of sunscreen so your face will be protected from the sun all day!
  • Apply bronzer- Applying bronzer first all over your face will help even out your skin tone and give you a nice sun-kissed glow. Use the Blush + Bronzer Brush to apply a lighter layer all over your face.
  • Apply Demi Correctors- Depending on what you want to conceal (dark circles, broken capillaries, blemishes, age spots), apply a small amount of color just on those areas with the Spot Brush. You will be amazed at how little you need to really change your look! Since you are just applying a small amount, you will have a barely there makeup look that won’t rub off. (The Wide Awake edit is great for concealing those dark circles and tired eyes. The Erase Edit is great for concealing blemishes and distractions. The Rewind Edit is great for concealing dark spots and freckles.)
  • Apply illuminator- Using your finger, apply a layer of illuminator to the tops of your cheekbones and bow of your lip. You can also apply it to your eyelids. Illuminator will give you a pretty glistening glow!
  • Apply mascara- This will give your lashes a feminine look and help you look more polished.
  • Apply lip color- Top your look off by adding some lip color. Since you want a barely there makeup look, one of these shades are perfect: Summer LoveBoardwalkSadie, Carousel. As a bonus, you can take that same lip color and add a little color to your cheeks!
