Do You Wear Makeup to the Beach?

Love that idea, PrettyBrittani89. I saw a woman in Miami whose nail polish and lip gloss coordinated with her sundress perfectly. It was so cute, but not overdone at all!

I love matching my eyeshadow with my bathing suit. It may sound cheesy but I don't over do it. I usually use a color in my bathing suit and blend it into darker or more softer colors. I use lip balm, water-proof mascara and eyeshadow when going to the beach just to feel pretty. I love summer and colors so why not use my face to bring them together lol. And it never looks like its melting off my face!

Mostly just SPF, but sometimes I will put some concealer on problem spots, maybe bronzer and SOMETIMES mascara but not usually. I like to swim too much to wear tons of makeup

OK seriously,why would you wear make up to the beach? Do you want to look like you`re melting?I just don`t get it...Chopstick is OK, but anything else...I don`t think so....

Bare naked. I often stay out of the sun or wear non-nano Zinc and/or Titanium Dioxide SPF (letting my legs/arms get about 5-10 minutes unprotected to get Vit.D than slather on the SPF.) Since I follow the reapplication rules of SPF, I do not wear makeup to the beach. Also I tend to find it odd to be wearing MU to locale where it will melt off of your face. The closest I get to wearing cosmetics in the sun, is a SPF tinted lip balm (Alba Organics, Burt's Bees) and "maybe" a faint dab of SPF under eye concealer (100% Pure has SPF20.) Afterwards, if going to a beachside restaurant, I would apply extra, such as tinted moisturizer, pink-peach cream blush, a sweep of champagne shadow, a swipe of (100% Pure Black Tea or Dark Chocolate) mascara and gloss (Tarte's Winnie; HoneyBee Gardens) or calendula oil/salve (by MJ Herbals) since it often gives the look of clear gloss minus the stickiness.

I prefer to swim at the beach...and look good. Runny make-up a swimsuit model does not make....

I definitely am in favor of a bare face beach look. I will say though that if i know folks will take pics, I'm on GenesisRock's team and use a couple of swipes of mascara!

I take my swimming far too seriously to wear make up to the beach. After the beach in the evening however is another story.

I voted 'bare-naked' because I very rarely wear makeup in general. I once left my work keys in my makeup bag and didn't find them again for three months, that's how often I wear makeup. Luckily I had a sympathetic boss and she gave me her extra key. Though if I know someone will be taking my picture I definitely put some on. For the beach I just use some SPF 15, face and body. I have terrible vision and can't go without either glasses or contacts, so I don't swim too often because the H2O bothers my contacts (swimming w/ glasses = impossible). I prefer to catch some rays while my little one plays in the water.

Mascara + lipstain + SPF containing lipbalm I use a parasol and wear SPF 110 (Neutrogena brand) because I have PMLE (Polymorphous light eruption) and am prone to photodermatitis. I try and stay away from the sun as much as possible.

I wear chapstick (w/ spf) and lots of sunscreen. I'm also on a medication that reacts badly with sun exposure so I have to be extra careful. I HATE just sitting around in the sun on the beach so I tend to be in the water most of the time, in which case it's pointless to wear makeup since I'm a spash-fight starter :)

I wear a little waterproof mascara and vats of sunblock.

What the hell? I only wear 30+ sunscreen and a hat. But makeup to the beach? Never,

A swipe of mascara since someone always insists on bringing a camera and posting the picks online. Never enough to interfere with my fun in the ocean :)

I don't go to the beach anymore. I stay out of the sun.. Sun + the prescription I take = bad news! It really sucks, but I want to be healthy.

i only wear makeup to the beach if i'm going somewhere right afterward. for your typical day at the beach, though, it's all sunscreen all the time.

I chose the second option because I wear some but not as much as for everyday use, although those aren't my go-to products...I might put a bit of concealer on, bronzer on my cheeks, eyeliner, maybe a nude eyeshadow and mascara. Always mascara. And then a lip balm with SPF. That said, it wouldn't look like I was wearing anything, except maybe the eyeliner.
