Natural beach makeup

I am aware that wearing makeup to the beach is almost as controversial as wearing makeup to the gym but bear with me here- I'm not on holiday on a tropical island, I'm going to the beach in a seaside town in England to hang out with friends and I just want to look a little nicer than I would without makeup. It's kind of a no-makeup look (you could definitely fool most men with it), and it's really easy and quick to achieve.
First I like to conceal my dark circles with my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, which makes a world of a difference to the way my face looks. I have very dark circles no matter how much sleep I get so this is a must for me. I'll also do a little bit of spot concealing if I have any particularly offensive blemishes but normally I just let the rest of my skin be.
I like to define my eyes a little bit by lightly smudging the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Khol Kajal in Bronze along my upper and lower lashline (lightly being the operative word here). I then curl my lashes and apply lots of the Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof mascara, which gives my lashes some natural looking length and definition that stays on all day. I tend to just run a little bit of tinted eyebrow gel through my brows, because I think that a natural look with super defined brows can look a little strange- for this I use the tinted gel from my Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette. Lastly I just use the Benefit Posie Tint on my cheeks and lips for a subtle flush and tadaa- I'm ready to go. This literally takes me under five minutes to do but it makes such a difference to my face and therefore my confidence!

Do you ever wear makeup to the beach?
