7 steps to getting pool party ready
With summer finally here, there are about to be so many pool parties popping off. To look your best while splashing poolside, 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 seven easy steps to achieving a flawless 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. Allow the primer to dry before applying shadow on top.
Step 2: Eye shadow
Keep it simple. Start with a universally-flattering 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 another fun seasonal shade), 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 a 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 a coral, and apply it to your lips. Try to use a long-wear lipstick formula that won't melt off in the heat or require too many touch-ups.
Step 7: Setting spray
Choose a setting spray to extend the life of your look. Shake your spray, close your eyes, and mist it all over. Let it dry, and you'll be sitting pretty for hours.
Bonus: body glow
Whether you'll be going all-in for a swim or just dipping your toes in the water, a little glow always ups your summertime shine. Choose a body shimmer in dust-on powder form or a nourishing oil for added hydration and gleam. Apply it to your shoulders and neck to achieve an instant amazing summer glow.
