Beauty Mood Board: Sunny Beach Babe

    I’ll admit: I love the idea of the beach, but not so much the beach itself, at least in Los Angeles. It’s always crowded, sand gets everywhere, the water isn’t the cleanest… Luckily, I can fake the fun of the beach with a few choice beauty products.

    1. NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny

    This beauty blogger favorite has a cult following for a reason. Easy to blend and with buildable color, this matte bronzer is great for both contouring and faking sun kissed color.

    2. SolScents Sunscreen in Pina Colada
    The SolScents sunscreen line consists of skin protectors that smell as good as they sound. Safe for both the body and face, this waterproof sunscreen nourishes the skin while making it smell and look great.

    3. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Teeny Bikini
    Brand new for their Electric Summer collection (to be released in July), this sunny pastel shade will compliment natural and fake tans alike.

    4. Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer

    The sunshine will have some competition when you apply this illuminizer. Great for highlighting or mixing with your favorite summer foundation, this argan oil infused product will give you a glow like no other.

    5. Lush Brightside Bubble Bar
    A long day pretending to be at the beach merits some serious relaxation. Use this bubble bar for an invigorating, citrusy bath that will sooth your summer skin and awaken your senses.

    6. Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
    Everyone knows the best part of going to the beach is leaving with amazing hair. You can get all that texturized awesomeness in this spray bottle, without the sea smell.

    7. BH Cosmetics Malibu Palette

    With 16 beachy eyeshadow colors and five face powders, you can create a plethora of fun summer looks with this compact palette.

    8. Maybelline Color Elixir in Mandarin Rapture
    This fusion between gloss, balm, and lipstick offers a wearable orange color with moisture that will make your lips feel and look great.

    What are your favorite beachy beauty products?



    1. A few of my favorites are on your list. You need to come to Hawaii – Maui specifically. Our beaches can get crowded, but I would certainly not take you to where all the tourists are and if they are – you still don’t have overcrowding

    2. I’m surprised that the beaches in LA aren’t more appealing! I like the beaches here in Florida.. but I rarely go. How do you like using a sea salt spray on your hair? I’m usually looking to reduce volume – do you get a nice wave?
