Looking chic at sea can often be hard to achieve, as the hot sun and salt water sprays can play havoc on hair and makeup. To help you avoid this, OROGOLD Cosmetics has put together some great tips that you can use when getting ready for a day at sea, ensuring that you look and feel your best throughout the day.
Makeup – Less is More
Wearing a full face of makeup is not usually a good idea if you are spending the day at sea, but, for many people, having a completely bare face is also not an appealing option. Instead, opt for a makeup look that is natural and as minimal as possible. Many products have SPF built in, meaning that they will protect your face whilst giving you a good base. A waterproof bronzing cream is a good product to give your face a golden glow. It is also important to protect your lips from the sun, to save them getting chapped, and a tinted lip balm or lip stain with SPF is a necessity. Avoid lip glosses, as these will just slide off your lips as soon as the water hits your face. When it comes to your eyes, avoid any heavy eyeliners. Find a good waterproof mascara, swiping it quickly through your lashes to give your eyes some definition without making it look as though you are wearing a thick layer. If you plan on being quite active in the water and don’t want to risk any black streaks on your face, then a clear mascara would probably be best.
A Healthy Tan
It goes without saying that tanning your skin by lying in the sun is not going to do the quality of your skin any favors, but a bit of color can make the world of difference. An airbrush tanning spray would be the perfect solution, giving you a healthy looking tan without any of the dangers that come from exposing your skin to the sun. Purchase a lightweight formula that will not only set quickly but is also water and transfer resistant.
Salt water is one of your hair’s worst enemies as it dries it out extremely quickly. A leave-in conditioner will help to protect your hair from the water, keeping it healthy. You could also apply a conditioning mask the night before to towel-dried hair, before twisting it up into a bun. Let it down the next day for gorgeous natural-looking waves. The heat from the sun will also open up your hair cuticles, allowing the conditioner to penetrate deeper, saving you from a frizzy-haired nightmare. Don’t spend too long fixing your hair into an elaborate style, as it is likely to be quickly blown out of place. Keep your hair looking as natural as possible, embracing any curls or waves with a texturizing hairspray. A scarf is also useful, as you can tie this around your hair to keep it out of your face.
Looking stylish at sea is all about embracing your natural features. OROGOLD recommends you to always use products with a built in SPF, ensuring that your skin and hair will be protected. Try to avoid any complex styles, so that you will be able to fully enjoy your day without worrying that your hair and makeup might be out of place.
