Minimal Make-Up for Summer Getaways

Last week while sitting on the beach at the lake, I got some great tips from my sister Laura, who is a make-up artist and esthetician, about minimal packing for summer getaways. She said there are really only four pieces of make-up that one needs to look fabulous on the beach, in the boat, or whatever lovely summer destination you find yourself in. Most of the recommendations below "double in the program" with multiple uses for one product. Now get that summer beachy glow!

Clarins SPF 40 Tinted SunscreenHigh-protection sunscreen and foundation in one. I tested this one at the lake and loved it!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick: Can be used as bronzer, eye shadow, highlighter, & cheek color.

Diorshow Waterproof Mascara: Laura swears by Diorshow and loves this waterproof version for summer swimming.

Stainiac by The Balm: Cheek and lip stain in one. I also really like Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lip/cheek action.


  1. Love all of your suggestions - we live near the lake and I always try to wear as little as possible during the summer months :)
