Bronze Tanning Lotion with SPF: Before hitting the pool deck, start by applying a bronze tanning lotion all over the body. This product will hydrate the skin as well as making it glow. Be sure to look for a lotion with SPF. A bad burn is never pretty and can be detrimental to the health of your skin.
Liquid Converter: Instead of spending a fortune on new waterproof makeup products, try a liquid converter that takes all powder formulas and makes them waterproof. This way you can use all of your favorite products but make them long-lasting for a day at the pool. Mix your usual products with just a few drops and directly apply it to the face. It will act as a seal so it is important to apply it quickly after mixing.
Waterproof Eyeliner and Shadow: Choose a product that is multifunctional and can be used as liner or shadow. Look for soft formulations that can line close to the lashline or blend all over the lid. If applying all over the lid, use a small shadow brush or the ring finger to warm the product up on the skin. Neutral colors close to your skin tone work best because if for any reason the product gets smudged it won’t be noticeable.
Waterproof Mascara: This product is essential when headed to a pool party, so your lashes won’t run. After curling the lashes, apply two coats of mascara to the lashes and allow to dry.

Lip Treatment with SPF: It’s important to remember to protect the lips as well as the rest of the face when exposed to the sun. Use a lip treatment with an SPF of 15 or higher in it to protect, hydrate and plump.
