Beach Bag Beauty Essentials
Blogged by: Karrinyup Personal Stylist, Marcia Ball. 22 Nov 2022

While you may not expect to get beauty tips from a fashion stylist, one cannot underestimate the
impact make-up has on an outfit. Your glam can either enhance an outfit and truly make your
style sing or have you uncertain if the look is wearing you and not the other way around? A
stroke of mascara, a flush of a lip stain, a splash of gloss to the cheekbone or a glowing
complexion may just be the mood booster you need to pull off that tricky colour or jumpsuit style
you haven’t tried before, this summer.

Your beauty routine and the confidence you wear is essential in your arsenal of aesthetic
charms and summer is all about highlighting your natural beauty.

I have selected 5 of my essential summer beauty products that will have you going from beach
to bar in under 5 minutes. I personally love, have tried, tested and regularly recommend these
products to my clients and they are not only clean, they suit everyone - no matter your whim or

1. Westman Atelier, Vital Stick Foundation | Available at Mecca

This is by far the best, most flawless, buttery foundation I have ever used. Ever since I started
wearing it, people actually compliment my skin and it is far from flawless, so go figure. Find your
tone and use a buffer brush to blend it out (this is a crucial step). It is an anti-inflammatory
product and was created by International make-up artist, Gucci Westman (Gwenyth Paltrow is a
big fan). I also love their LIT highlighter for a youthful glow.

2. Milk Make-up, Matte Bronzer | Available at Sephora

Swipe onto cheekbones, forehead and chin, and blend with fingertips for a sunkissed look.
Sweep onto collarbone, arms and legs for an all-over bronze. Love a multi-purpose product for
your beach bag and am obsessed with the story about how this brand was founded at the iconic
Milk Studios in New York. Check out Elle Ferguson’s Sliding Doors podcast to learn more about
the founders and this super cool clean, vegan brand.

3. Kora Organics Body Oil | Available at David Jones and Myer

A body oil is the perfect remedy for dry skin that hasn’t yet experienced the joys of summer salt
and sun. While regular SPF use is of course essential, body oil can have you looking a little
more toned and feeling beach babe ready when the daunting task of getting out of your cozies
and into your bikinis is required.

4. Burts Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard | Available at Priceline

Since discovering these lip crayons, I can’t leave the house without applying. It’s a creamy matte
colour and moisture-rich for everyday wear either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss. No added
flavour or fragrance. Hydrates and moisturises lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth. The light
pink (Carolina Coast) is also fun with a smokey bronze eye.

5. Inika Organics Eye Pencil in Cocoa | Available at Myer

A brown eyeliner is perfect for summer as it gives a softer, more effortless look. Smudge it with
your fingers for a smoldering smokey vibe or wear it bold to take your look from day to night. An
essential to keep in your beach bag for those salty days that lead into balmy summer nights
over cocktails. Salut!
