Packing for a day spent at the ocean can be daunting—what exactly, should you bring with you in your beach bag? There’s only so much you can fit, after all. Broad-spectrum sunscreen, sunglasses, a cover-up, and a water bottle are musts, of course—but if you plan on snapping selfies while you’re there, you may want to consider bringing a few makeup and hairstyling products along for the ride, too. It’s all about picking products that will allow you to create a low maintenance, yet still glowing look that’s perfect for summer. So, stock your beach bag with the following beauty essentials and you’ll be good to go!

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #1: Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof makeup is basically a necessity during the summer months (especially in humid climates)—and a beach trip is the perfect time to break out a waterproof version of your favorite mascara. Don’t let swimming or sweating get in the way of your flirty fringe. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara gently from root to tip. (Taking off your waterproof mascara at the end of the day doesn’t have to be difficult. Just read our guide to waterproof makeup removal to learn how to do it right.)

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #2: Luminous Concealer

When it comes to packing your beach bag, it’s all about reaching for makeup items that don’t take up much valuable space—as well as ones that pull double-duty. Which is why the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer is a perfect option. The super-slim concealer tube will easy fit inside your beach bag—and it’s totally multi-use. Available in eight shades, use this illuminate concealer to sculpt and highlight areas of your face as well as correct and conceal the look of imperfections.

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #3: Powder Highlighter

You know how your celebrities always look like they have a sun-kissed glow? You can achieve that with the right makeup. Add the appearance of warmth to your complexion with a powder highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator in Golden. With a fluffy makeup brush, apply it all over your face for beautiful illuminator or to key areas to highlight specific features. (Want more tips on using highlighter?

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #4: Brow Pomade

What makeup look would be complete without a pair of perfectly styled brows? Stash the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Frame & Set in your beach bag so that you can groom your arches on the go. To use, dip the brush into the pomade, outline your brow and define the arch, draw in brow hairs in sparse areas with the angled tip, fill in to your desired intensity, and comb and blend with the spoolie to finish your beach-chic look.

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #5: Self-Tanner

What would a trip to the beach be without some golden color? Get that bronzed goddess look with the help of self-tanner. For smooth application, make sure to exfoliate and moisturize first—and remember to apply sparingly to areas your like knees, elbows, and ankles. Take your self-tanner pick from the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ collection, which features everything from self-tanning towelettes to self-tanning mist to self-tanning serum, and more. The individually wrapped self-tanning towelettes are easy to store in your beach bag and use while you’re on vacation.

Beach Bag Beauty Essential #6: Wave Spray

Now that you’ve got your makeup set, don’t forget about your hair! Toss a bottle of wave spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, into your beach bag before heading out. Carefree tousled waves are a must-have summer hairstyle. Simply spritz the spray throughout towel-dried hair, scrunch your hair, and let it air dry. No dip in the ocean required!
