The last thing surf- and sun-fried hair needs is more drying, color-damaging salt. Instead of a saline spray, try Pureology Sea Kissed Texturizer Salt-Free Tousle Mist ($28, pureology.com), a color-safe spray that features nourishing olive, apricot and jojoba oils. Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse ($37, oribe.com) hydrates while it creates texture and separation for a beachy look.
Is your cat eye heatwave-proof? Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes ($19, sephora.com) has a combination of evaporating silicone emollients and microcristalline waxes to adhere to skin through blazing heat, sweat and tears. Waterproof CoverGirl Ink It! By Perfect Point Plus ($6, covergirl.com) glides on smooth with intense, long-lasting color (up to 12 hours).
Take out an insurance policy on your look with Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray ($29, sephora.com), a non-sticky mist that cools schvitzing skin and helps keep makeup in place. Benefit Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer ($32, benefitcosmetics.com) puts foundation on lockdown by creating a smooth surface for makeup to cling to.
A magic trick, for sure: L'Oral Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup ($12.95, lorealparisusa.com) goes from fluid to silky, complexion-smoothing powder as you blend it fingertips. Maybelline FIT me! Shine-Free Stick Foundation ($8.99, maybelline.com) features concealer-like coverage in an oil-free, gel-based formula with an anti-shine absorbent powder core.
Even if you're naturally sun-kissed by now, use bronzer to blend away funky tan lines and contour sexy cheekbones. This saucer-sized Orlane Soleil Cuivre 02 Compact Bronzer ($40, neimanmarcus.com) is perfect for swirling a big body brush. Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder ($36, lauramercier.com) has the most flattering finish: not too shimmery, but with a radiant sheen.
Sweat and sunscreen can leave a dulling film on skins surface. Wash away a hot day with Victoria's Secret Sun Blissed Buffing Body Wash ($10, victoriassecret.com), which has vitamin C beads to polish skin. Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub ($55, hsn.com) exfoliates with a blend of coffee beans and sugar, while mogongo nut oil moisturizes skin.
Healthy pink cheeks are pretty much the only makeup we endorse for the beach, and luckily Cargo Water Resistant Blush ($26, birchbox.com) lets you take a dip without a meltdown. Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint ($26, bobbibrowncosmetics.com), part of the summer Nude Beach collection, has a cream texture that makes skin look lit from within.
Like the original Lip Tar, new Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Stained Gloss ($18, sephora.com) isnt going anywhere, even though its juicy sheen looks just-applied. Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain ($19, sephora.com) does double-duty, with hyaluronic acid that keeps it from drying out.
Theres a sunscreen for every personality. Like your SPF designer, like your shades? Oscar de la Renta Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30 Cream ($30, oscardelarenta.com) has a light orange blossom scent. SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 50 ($40, skinceuticals.com) was tested on marathon runners to endure even the sweatiest conditions.
Prefer mineral sunscreens? Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Waterlight Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($48, katesomerville.com) is amazingly lightweight with zero white residue. And Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen ($10.49, neutrogena.com) wont agitate breakout-prone skin.
