If popularity matters, this contingent clearly wins, probably because wearing much makeup to the beach or pool seems kind of futile. (More on that later.) That doesn't mean *completely* bare-faced, though—perfected skin, full brows, and subtly enhanced beach waves still fall within this category. (Here, Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner show us how it's done.)

Here, we've got the high-glam girls, whose looks are more "here to be seen" than "here to frolic on the open seas." Take Rihanna's deep black lip and long nails or Selena's tight-lined eyes.

Selena Gomez
