Sink or swim
The beach too often goes hand in hand with tangled tresses and sliding mascara: why is it we tend not to look as chic as the models in their itsy bitsy bikinis and unshaken make-up? On a recent trip to Bondi Beach I experienced this first hand. (And let me just say, it’s not the best I’ve ever looked.)
Fast forward to me getting dunked by a 10-feet tall wave that’d have pro-surfer Layne Beachly quivering – and then complaining to my friends about the un-budge-able black rivers flowing down my cheeks.
One friend helpfully pointed out that I should have swapped my everyday mascara for my trusty Nutrimetics nc Lash Maximiser Waterproof Mascara, just like she had. (Seriously, who is the beauty writer here anyway?)
My next faux pas was opting to team my fabulous bronze sunscreen with my brand new whiter-than-white bikini. Perhaps if I had of waited the recommended couple of minutes for it to dry – instead of running straight into the water – I might have been able to avoid the so-not-Bondi-glam panda look.
Ahh... some people just can’t be told!
What is your beach beauty must-have?
