If you’re heading off to a warm, sunny destination for a winter vacation, you likely can’t wait to lounge on the beach – but how will you maintain your beautiful looks under the beating sun? Believe it or not, you don’t have to leave your foundation, lip gloss and eyeshadow at home just because you’re going to be enduring warm weather. Here are some makeup tips for the beach.

1. Choose summery tones.
To avoid looking too dolled up on the white sands when you’re supposed to be relaxing, Cosmopolitan magazine recommends going with peach- and pink-toned blush and eye makeup. Consider trying the Colorscience Pro Lip Polish Wand!

2. Keep your skin protected.
When selecting cosmetics for your trip, be sure to opt for makeup that includes SPF to fight off damaging ultraviolet rays while looking fabulous. These days, it’s possible to find everything from concealer to moisturizer that protects your skin from the sun.

3. Don’t go dark around your eyes.
Save the dramatic black eyeliner for your next night on the town and opt for a lighter shade while you catch some sunlight. Doing so can soften your look, making it more suitable for the beach.

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
