Adventure Meets Glamour: Outdoor Beauty Tips
Being an adventurer of the outdoors doesn't mean you can't be glamorous at the same time. Whether you're hiking, biking, or rock climbing, there are ways to look cute without feeling weighed down by your makeup, or looking like you belong at a party, rather than in the midst of nature.
First, find a foundation with SPF. If you're going to be in the sun, you definitely want to protect your skin, but you also don't want sunscreen to interfere with your complexion by making it oily. A compromise is to cover up unwanted blemishes with a foundation that matches your skin tone as well as shields it from the sun. Clinique Continuous Coverage Foundation is my go-to for outdoor adventures because it protects with SPF 15 and is light on my skin without sacrificing full, lasting coverage.
Moreover, protecting your lips, like your skin, is no joke. Choose a lip balm that also incorporates SPF. Sugar lip balms by Fresh are a great option for the outdoors because they have an SPF of 15, are incredibly hydrating, and come in both bold and subtle colors. Just because you are outside for the day doesn't mean you can't rock a plump red lip -- in fact, your lips are the perfect place to add some color to your look when you're prepping for the outdoors. Heavy blush or eyeshadow might be inappropriate, but bright lips and bright sunshine go hand in hand!
Lastly, you're going to want to avoid heavy eyeliner and shadow, but you also don't want your eyes to go unnoticed. For these reasons, use waterproof mascara in a natural color, like brown. You can apply it to both your upper and lower lashes followed by the use of an eyelash curler to make your eyes pop in a not-so-obvious way. LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara by Covergirl comes in an ideal black/brown shade that is perfect for creating natural, beautiful eyes that can survive sweat, wind, and sun.
