Who wants to wear a face full of makeup while out enjoying the sun, sand and surf on Memorial Day Weekend? Granted, we may need a bit of help with a touch of makeup here and there, but what’s more important to remember is that for a day in the sun, SPF is needed. Even supermodels like Joan Smalls cheat with a pinch of makeup for a day on the beach. Look how gorgeous she is in the photo we snatched from her Instagram account…
That’s why we rounded up our favorite “no makeup” makeup, as well as blush and lippies that protect your skin from the sun’s rays.
