My Top Beach Makeup Tips…..A Beautiful Beach Engagement Shoot

Warm sunshine, fresh salty air and crashing waves, may be a beautify setting to get married or have an engagement shoot but remember theses top tips to keep your makeup looking beautiful.

Lady's a must read for top beach makeup tips.

1- Salty air causes excessive water loss from your skin. To avoid dry skin drink plenty of water to minmize dehydration. For smooth skin of the day of your shoot or wedding day remember to tone and mosturize your skin well.

2- Blusher and bronzer should be matt, save the shimmer for the cheek bones, as the refection of the water and sun will hit this area of your face.

3- A foundation is so important and must be able to stand humidity and must have a high SPF in it - If you have oil prone skin use a matt cream foundation, if you have normal to dry skin use a liquid foundation to achieve a more hydrated glow.

4- For the humid, have some blot films close to hand. This will blot away any excess oil and sweet

5- Sunlight illuminates flaws far more than indoor lighting does. Extra care is needed to cover blemishes use a matte concealer.

6- Remember to blend blend blend your makeup using blending brushers this will ensure that your makeup looks smooth and natural, even in the brightest of lights.

7- A matt lipstick is more likely to stay put in the sun. A gloss will just melt and shine.

8- A good waterproof mascara is a must - eyelashes can be added to create a fuller look.
