Sunkissed Makeup Look For Beach Vacation

Beach Makeup Look - Maybelline India

Planning a beach vacay and wish to flaunt a sun-kissed glow? Well, we heard your wish and are here to deliver it too! No matter how many makeup trends you try, nothing spells perfect like a natural or bronzy beach makeup look. The bronzed aka sun-kissed makeup look can never go out of fashion and is perfect for a holiday, dinner date, or any special occasion. Now that we’ve hyped this look so much, let’s tell you how to recreate it with makeup. Here is a simple sun-kissed makeup tutorial along with products to help you get that ‘sunshine in your pocket’ to prep yourself anytime and anywhere. 

Step-by-step guide on recreating beach makeup look 

Acing the beach makeup look, i.e. bronzed sun-kissed makeup look is easier with these simple steps:  

Step 1: Fill in your pores

Skin prep plays a pivotal role in how your sun-kissed, i.e. beach makeup will sit on your face. Kickstart this makeup trend by cleansing and moisturizing your face and follow it up with a primer. This staple makeup product help fill your pores, create an even texture, and ensures long-lasting makeup. Try the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup and give you a radiant sun-kissed makeup look. 

Step 2: Create an even complexion

The next step of your beach makeup is to set the groundwork (get even skin tone, cover blemishes, etc.) for the entire makeup look. Apply a very thin layer of the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation to get that perfect beach makeup look. To ensure a smooth application, without making it look heavy or cakey, dab the foundation with a makeup sponge instead of sweeping it across. Check out our guide on how to use makeup sponge correctly to master the foundation application technique.  

Step 3: Banish the blemishes

Dark circles or puffy eyes ruins every makeup look be it beach makeup, full glam makeup or nude makeup. Hence, you need a magic wand that can erase puffiness or dark circles. Enter concealer! It helps conceal dark spots, age spots, blemishes, and other skin imperfections. You can try the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and apply it under your eyes and other areas needed. We recommend that you apply the concealer using the facelifting technique for a natural yet snatched beach makeup look.  

Step 4: Sculpt your face

Add definition to your bronzed makeup look by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. This will create shadows on the face and these shadows can make your face appear slimmer, and give you more prominent cheekbones, a stronger jawline, a smaller nose, fuller lips, and more. Recreating beach makeup for Indian skin can be tricky, so choose a product wisely and apply it so that your face makeup doesn’t look muddy or cakey. 

Step 5: Go Bronzy

Next, use a bronzer to give your skin the perfect beach makeup look. The bronzer is used to create natural warmth and using it the right way can make your skin look as if you’ve been vacationing on a tropical island and soaking up in the sun—even if you’re a total homebody or amid a harsh winter. 

Step 6: Enhance your cheeks

Give your skin a naturally flushed look by using a pink or nude blush from the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush collection. Apply it on the apples of your cheeks to make your skin look fresh and healthy. Pro-tip: For a natural bronzed beach makeup look, don’t go overboard with the blusher.  

Step 7: Put some shine on

Use a highlighter to turn up the glam quotient for your beach makeup look. To add a dazzling shine and achieve the perfect beach makeup look, apply the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter on your cheekbones, in an upward motion. Then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow. 

Step 8: Let your eyes talk

Fill in sparse or uneven eyebrows with the Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil. The beach makeup look will look the best with natural, warm eyeshadows. Choose a nude eyeshadow shade from the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. Then, intensify your beach makeup look by using eyeliner or kajal, or both. But don’t go overboard with the eyeliner or kajal if you want your eye makeup to look natural. Complete your eye makeup with a few coats of the Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara

Step 9: Add colour to your lips

The final step to complete your beach makeup look is to add a hint of colour to your lips. Since your face makeup is the focus of this look, stick to a tinted lip balm. The Maybelline Baby Lips Loves Color Lip Balm will not only add colour to your lips but also keep them soft and hydrated all through the day. If you are a lipstick lover and wish to go a mile extra, go for nude lipstick or brown lipstick from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Crayon Lipstick collection.
