Whether you’re a bona fide surfer babe or have never once ridden a wave, these five products are perfect for creating that laid-back, boho-style beach look. So bust out your best bikini, grab your board (or borrow one from a friend), and enjoy looking surfer-girl-chic (regardless of your actual ocean-skimming abilities).
Many hard-core surfers (including men!) name this stick as one their favorite sun blocks for the face. It protects skin from those serious UVA/UVB rays and stays on for hours. It also adds a sheer, dewy finish to your face, which is perfect for those who are happy to simply relax on the sand.
I didn’t think it was possible—a waterproof bronzer? But here it is, thanks to Tarte. It’s lightweight, leaves a nice matte finish, and blends without issue over a layer of sunblock. Formulated with antioxidant-rich vitamins A, C and E, Tarte’s breakthrough bronzer also helps to improve skin tone and texture, as well as fight free radical damage. It’s a must for your tropical travel bag.
There are lots of great sprays that will give your hair those on-trend beachy waves. But Oribe’s Mousse separates your strands like no other. Just a golf-ball sized puff applied to wet or dry hair gives you super sexy, terrifically tousled hair—you truly look like you’ve spent the whole day surfing away.
This surfer girl styling paste works best for those who really like to catch waves in the water. It contains Moroccan argan oil and sea kelp to keep hair conditioned and moisturized, and it’s great for applying post-surf, too—it gives your mane a nice matte finish as well as extra texture and hold.
The perfect Stila palette for surfer chicks, this travel kit contains four eye shadow shades (champagne, deep brown, light plum and green with gold glitter), a peachy-pink matte blush, a light pink highlighter, as well as a handy mirror and how-to application booklet. Proof that you don’t have to surf the Mexican seas to get a sexy surfer-girl glow.
