Summertime is almost here, and we couldn’t be more beach ready. One thing we’re not looking forward to is the traitorous sweat that’s bound to drip down our faces and mess up our makeup. It doesn’t matter how many hours you put into beating your face; the sun, and the gross humidity it brings with it, respects no one.
While you’re planning trips to the beach or sunbathing sessions on your balcony, you also need to plan for multiple makeup applications. Don’t get us wrong. We love everything that comes with summer, but we wish that our makeup would get on board.
There is a way to get your beach on without looking like you’re fresh off the set of a rainy, 90s love ballad music video. Waterproof makeup is the answer to all of your problems!
