Solution: Too Faced Conquers The Sun With Beach-Friendly Beauty

You're prepped for a day at the beach: you've got your bikini on and your beach bag stuffed with trashy magazines, your iPod, a cute towel, and enough sunscreen to last a lifetime. Unfortunately, you're not sure if your makeup will hold up as long under the rays as you will. Don't dread drippy or disappearing makeup; Too Faced has a whole line of beach friendly beauty to keep you looking hip even after a dip.

For face, you're going to have to start early. Begin building a bronzed-goddess glow with Tanning Bed in a Tube for Face ($21.50). You'll get instant shimmer and notice a visible difference in your tan after one use, but you'll really get glowing if you use this actually decent-smelling build-a-bronze for a week. This doesn't have SPF, so we recommend applying a non-oily formula (Neutrogena makes a good one) right before you hit the sand. Keep your newly acquired glow from refracting rays (oil and sweat can be a real summer bummer!) by keeping a pack of Re-Fresh Oil Blotting Papers ($12) in your beach tote. A quick dab and it's your glowing personality—not your greasy cheeks—that will have people noticing you.

Of course, no beach babe worth her weight in buried treasure is complete without a little eye candy. Dress your lids up island style with shimmery Foiled liner ($16.50) in either emerald Metallic Mermaid or oceanic Turquoise Tinsel. Coat lashes with a stroke of Lash Injection mascara ($19.50), a huge-wanded formula that puts tiny tubes of glossy color around each and every lash. Both the liner and the mascara are waterproof and sweatproof, so you can go for a swim and still emerge from the surf looking like a million bucks.

As for your lips, keep everything where it should be by first applying Border Line Anti-Feather lip pencil ($18.50). Whether you go for a slick stick or a gleaming gloss, it'll stay put instead of getting all smudgy on you. For a splash of color, we like Status Gloss ($19.50). It's not too over the top glittery, but it provides enough shimmer to go from beach lounging to boardwalk dining feeling great.
