With summer around the corner, there are so many pool parties happening. To look your best this summer, remember two essential things — make sure to stock up on waterproof cosmetics and pick out some bright colors, like aqua, bronze, and coral, to wear. Want to learn more? Here are 7 easy steps to achieving a pool party glam look:

Step 1: Eye shadow primer

Use eye shadow primer during the summer to keep eyeshadow lasting all day long. Apply it to the upper lid and blend it in with your finger. Then apply eye shadow primer to the lower lash line, blending it.

Step 2: Eye shadow

Keep it simple — use two shades of eyeshadow. Start with a bronze shade, and sweep it all over the lid. Then blend it into the crease of your eyelid.

Step 3: Pop of color

Grab an aqua color (or whatever color you want), and apply it to your lower lash line using a thin brush. Get as close to your lashes as possible. This will add a flirty pop of color to your eyes.

Step 4: Upper lash line

Define your upper lash line using black eye pencil. Make sure you only use waterproof eyeliner to prevent smearing.

Step 5: Mascara

Don't go with a regular mascara — choose a waterproof formula. Apply mascara to your upper lash line, but not to your bottom lashes since that area easily smears.

Step 6: Lipstick

Choose a summer color, like coral, and apply it to your lips. Try to use a long wear lipstick formula that won't melt off.

Step 7: Setting spray

Shake up the setting spray, close your eyes, and mist it all over. Let it dry, and you're done.

Bonus step: body shimmer

Body shimmer is really fun to play with. Apply it to your shoulders and neck to achieve an instant amazing summer glow.
