"Begin any day, especially a beach day with good skincare and a high SPF, at least 30 or higher. Double duty products are great in the summer, like tinted moisturizers, as they provide sheer coverage and sun protection all in one. Apply a thin layer all over your face, neck, and décolleté," Soane says.

Then follow these two steps, literally two.

Eyes: "If you're going to wear eye makeup, remember to choose one that is long wearing. Bobbi's Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks are water-resistant, crease-proof and stay put. To keep it really simple, apply a couple of coats of black waterproof mascara and call it a day," says Soane. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks, $29, Dior Waterproof Mascara, $25,

Face: "Apply a cream blush, like Bobbi's Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, in a warm bronze for a natural glow and a bright pink for a fun pop of color," she adds. Make Up Forever Second Skin Cream Blush, $26, Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, $27,


"After a long day at the beach, add a touch of glam for nighttime by applying a soft sweep of shimmer to your cheeks, décolleté or legs, for a subtle but sexy highlight. I love Bobbi's Shimmer Brick in Bronze or Beige," says Soane. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, $44, Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc, $42,
