Makeup, despite what the beauty industry would have you believe, isn’t totally necessary. In fact, it can be liberating to go out with a naturally fresh, makeup-free face. That being said, it’s equally empowering to assert your right to wear it wherever and whenever you so choose. And while the pool and the beach are two settings where you wouldn’t normally think to wear it to, it can be done—without the risk of a water-induced beauty disaster.
Whether you’re heading to a shoreside party, or just relaxing in the sand with a good read, you should feel comfortable enough to wear makeup if you want to. Check out the best tried and tested waterproof beauty products in the gallery below.
