4 Swimwear Designers’ Beach-Ready Beauty Must-Haves

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Now that we’re in the final weeks of summer, it’s time to squeeze in your last-minute beach jaunts and exotic getaways. I checked in with some of today’s most in-demand swimwear designers to see what trusty beauty products they never hit the waves without.

1. SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50: “Apply bronzing powder on top of this protective sunscreen to offset the white tint and you’re good to go!”

2. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Bronzing Powder: “My shade is called Give Me Sun. It’s a mineral powder that leaves a sheer finish, which is the perfect look for direct sunlight.”

Packing the Perfect Beach Bag: Guest Blogger

Our latest guest blogger, Ally of Allyson in Wonderland, is an oil and gas professional with a serious eye for great finds. We can’t get enough of her gorgeously crafted blog, where she shares her love for style, travel, and photography. This week she’s giving us a peek into her personal beauty treasure chest—and we’re taking notes.

As a child, I couldn’t wait to go to the beach in the summer and stick my toes in the water (plus, I loved making sandcastles). As an adult, not much has changed. I still can’t wait to lay my eyes on turquoise water and palm trees. 

To stay happy and comfortable while soaking up the sun, I depend on the following beach essentials:

This past Saturday, at a time when I would normally be sleeping in, I was sweating up a storm, working out my quads and biceps. What could possibly have gotten me out of bed and doing pushups and squats? Celebrity trainer Jackie Warner. Well & Good NYC hosted a workout event with Evian Water and Warner as part of Evian’s Live Young, Get Fit! series and I was lucky enough to be invited.

If you’ve ever seen either of Warner’s Bravo reality shows, Work Out or Thintervention, you know she’s an excellent motivator. In addition to leading an intense workout in the sand at Beekman’s Garden in NYC’s South Street Seaport, Warner talked about why she teamed up with Evian, and offered tricks for staying motivated to work out. Plus, she shared a delicious and easy recipe for a shake to drink before you sweat.

5 Makeup-Free Beauty Essentials for Your Next Island Escape

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Greetings from Curaçao! I’m here covering the island’s first-ever fashion week, which features the innovative work of over 20 designers from 13 countries. All shows start around 7pm every night, so I’ve been using my daytime freedom to explore this Caribbean gem’s ridiculously stunning beaches and towns. And since the country is located in the tropics, just 12° north of the Equator, it’s humid all year round (a clever local explained that Curaçao’s seasons are “hot” and “inferno”). This means that makeup should be kept to a minimum since you’ll want to spontaneously jump in the water to cool off. Save for some water-resistant mascara at night, I’ve decided to go makeup-free on this trip and  focus on keeping my skin hydrated and protected from the sun.

Here’s a roundup of winning products that are keeping me looking fresh-faced and stress-free:
