How to Create Beach Makeup

If you’re on the hunt for a beach makeup look that practically guarantees IT-girl status, we’re here to help you nail it. Keep scrolling for your crash course to create a beach makeup look. 

Step 1: Cleanse Your Skin

Start by cleansing your face with a gentle, hydrating cleanser. This will help unclog pores and get rid of any dirt or impurities that might be hugging your skin.

This cleanser does exactly what its supposed to do without any funny business. It helps the skin get rid of dirt and impurities without stripping of its natural oils. Plus, it gives the skin a hard-hitting hydration to plump it up. 

Step 2: Pat & Press The Serum On Your Skin

Apply a vitamin C serum to your face. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps in enhancing the power of your sunscreen by fighting free radicals and harmful rays from the sun. It also helps minimize dark spots and pigmentation while preventing premature signs of aging.

Whether you’re dealing with dull skin, low glow, or dark spots - this vitamin C serum has got your back. This serum also contains hyaluronic acid that injects moisture back into the skin to tighten and nourish it. 


Step 3: Moisturise!

Slather on a hydrating face cream to inject moisture into your skin.

We thought glass skin was the stuff of myths and photoshop until we tried this face moisturiser. Boasting water bank technology, this cream is like a tall glass of water for the skin and will give you the dewiest skin of your damn dreams. 

Step 4: SPF = BFF

We’ve said it a thousand times but it bears repeating. You need to apply sunscreen every single day and re-apply it every two to three hours. Yes, even when you are indoors. But it’s a non-negotiable step when you’re spending your day at the beach. Apply your sunscreen in the am and reapply it every couple of hours to keep your skin protected and prevent sunburn.

This spray sunscreen will ruin all other sunscreen for you. It makes SPF application and reapplication so friggin’ easy. And thanks to hyaluronic acid in this formulation, it gives the skin a beautiful dewy glow we all crave. Try this once and it’s gonna be the MVP of your sun protection skincare stash.

Step 5: Apply A Lightweight Foundation

Trade your foundation with a BB or CC cream because they are lightweight and can survive the sweltering heat and won’t melt down. Alternatively, applying a lightweight foundation would also do the trick. Apply it in thin layers and don’t go overboard with it as a little coverage is all you need. You can also skip this step and apply only a concealer instead. 

MyGlamm Recommended Product: Treat Love Care Brightening Foundation

This foundation is legit like a blur tool in a bottle. It’s chockful of vitamins and antioxidants that work wonders to amp up the brightness. It gives a luminous finish whilst strengthening skin’s barrier. We like!

Step 6: Conceal!

Apply concealer to brighten the under-eye area. Use it to cover any scars and blemishes you’d like to conceal.

The Manish Malhotra Concealer is a serious crowd-pleaser. It’s hydra-fit technology gives it a smooth, cushiony texture. It blends and melts into the skin like magic to give you the coverage of your damn dreams. 

Step 7: She Came, She Contoured

Add warmth to your complexion by applying bronzer on areas where sunlight would naturally hit. Load some bronzer on a brush and run it along the hollows of your cheeks, along your jawline, and your hairline.

If you want that modelesque bone structure sans needles, workouts, or Instagram filter, this is the bronzer to call on. It’ll sculp your face to the heavens and create a natural-looking contour. 

Step 8: Cherub Cheeks, Here We Come

Give your face a flirty flush by applying a liquid or cream blush on the apples of your cheeks. Blend it upwards towards the temples to give your face a lifted look. You can also try the draped blush trend by applying it on the apple of your cheeks on either side of and on the bridge of your nose.

For our fellow glamm-loving queens who love sporting that post-workout flushed glow, you need to add this to your cart stat. The dew-inducing lip and cheek tint is all you need to take your glow game to a whole new level.

Step 9: Lashes For Day!

Take your eye makeup game up a notch by curling your lashes and coating them with mascara.

If you want to rock XXL lashes sans false eyelashes, this mascara is the next best thing. It’ll curl, lengthen, and volumise your lashes in a way that’ll trick people into thinking that you’re false eyelashes. Snag this beauty before it sells out.


Step 10: When In Doubt, Go With A Nude Lip

Apply a lip balm with in-built SPF and then top it off with your fave lipstick or lip gloss
