The ‘Baywatch’ movie hits theaters on May 25, and simultaneously, many of you will be hitting the beach for Memorial Day Weekend. Here’s how to make sure your tan stays even and golden despite the sand and surf — read tips from the head makeup artist for the movie!
Baywatch’s Head Makeup Artist Kim Greene used Westmore Beauty, which is a Hollywood secret weapon that’s also been used on sets like Planet Of The Apes and The Mask. Her challenge was makeup that was waterproof, smudge proof and evened a tan without getting streaky or flaky. If you aren’t feeling like your absolute best self hitting the beach for the first time, you can try these tricks. Her first weapon? Westmore Body Coverage Perfector, which evens cellulite, and helps to hide spots, scars and veins. “The cast was being sprayed with water or soaking in in the ocean for 12-14 hours at a time,” Kim said. “Self-tanner would start to streak and peel off, the Body Coverage Perfector was the perfect way to even out the self-tanner mishaps, hide any imperfections and it lasted up to 3 days. I also kept the wardrobe team happy because it didn’t rub off on white dresses.”
They also have a Coverage Perfector for the face, which is super hydrating and luxe, and gives an airbrushed feel. You don’t want to wear a ton of makeup at the beach, but a little mascara and eyebrow pencil can go a LONG way — they can make you look totally awake and refreshed, but you need to choose the right formula! She used Westmore’s Red Carpet Lashes, which gives curl, volume, and length. Kim told us: “This was the one mascara that truly didn’t budge in the water!” Finally, she used the One Step Brow Gel, which is transfer resistant and waterproof.
Those products are available on QVC.com. Of course, in addition to a little face and body makeup, you should also be applying SPF at the beach! Re-apply every two hours, especially if you are swimming or sweating. Wear a hat to protect your face, especially when the sun is at its strongest, around noon. There are even sunscreens for your hair and scalp, an area that so many people forget to protect. Be safe this summer!
