When it comes to beach makeup products to use on Maui, do you know which ones you should bring with you on the island and which ones you can leave at home?
Once a year comes the time we seem to have been waiting for what seems like forever! It’s vacation time and usually involves it being summer! And for many of us, that means a little getaway to the beach or heading to a travel destination.
However, just because you’re on vacation, it doesn’t mean you don’t plan on wearing or using makeup products,
While some individuals prefer going makeup-free when they spend time at the beach, it’s possible to apply some makeup without the risk of it “melting away” if you choose to wear makeup.
Keep reading to find out more about how to use your beach makeup products on Maui and what’s the best routine for an Amazing Maui Babe spending a few days on the island!
First things first: always use SPF!
When you’re going to spend time at the beach, step #1 should always be applying sunscreen.
It doesn’t matter if your makeup already contains SPF, you’ll be directly exposed to sunlight for at least a few hours, and therefore, your skin needs to be protected.
You can always skip applying your beach makeup products on Maui, but you should never underestimate the importance of applying sunscreen to your babe skin before heading out to the beach.
Choose waterproof beach makeup products on Maui
If you plan on applying makeup before going to the beach, make sure you choose the right beach makeup products when you’re in Maui.
If you don’t plan on getting wet, you can apply regular makeup. However, by choosing waterproof products, you eliminate some of the risks of having your makeup “rinse-off” or “smudge” when you swim or sit out in the sun, which can get sweaty at times.
Eye makeup: make your eyes stand out at the beach
As many eye makeup products come in powder formulas, we don’t recommend wearing eye shadow at the beach.
However, here’s what you can do if you want to stand out as the Amazing Maui Babe you are: curl your eyelashes and add a layer or two of waterproof mascara. If you wish to, you could also apply waterproof eyeliner, but make sure to check the label twice, so you’ll avoid the risk of your makeup “smearing” the moment you come out of the water!
Use a setting spray
A great way to ‘set’ your makeup before going outdoors to enjoy the island and beautiful beaches are to use a setting spray or an all-natural mister. It will further lessen the chances of your makeup running, smudging, or smearing. In other words, it gives your makeup an extra chance to stay in place during the day.
An Amazing Maui Babe tip: We recommend using our Hydrating Mist made with 100% all-natural ingredients on Maui, Hawaii. It is a refreshing and hydrating cooling mist made with all-natural coconut, sweet almond, macadamia nut, grape seed, and avocado oils as well as rosehip water, aloe, and witch hazel. A formula created for tanning and skin care enthusiasts who want to keep their skin hydrated, beautiful, and smelling like the tropics.
Beach makeup products on Maui for your lips
Lips are one of the most beautiful parts of the body. But keep in mind your lips are sensitive, so you mustn’t take them for granted with your everyday routine, especially while outdoors.
Keep them hydrated and exfoliated, and make sure you protect them with your Reef Safe Sunscreen. To make them stand out, avoid using lip gloss if you’re going to the beach. Instead, go for a tinted lip balm or stain that will leave your pout looking soft and plump.
Don’t forget about using an After Sun lotion when you come home from the beach
Just as the first step of your beach makeup routine, the last one is also mandatory and non-negotiable.
To look and feel like the most Amazing Maui Babe you are on the island, you should keep your skin healthy and hydrated. So, after you come home from the beach and after your cleansing routine, make sure you don’t forget to apply an After Sun lotion to keep your skin smooth, hydrated, and rejuvenated. It will also help heal and seal your tan.
