With spring in full swing it's finally time for one of the best pastimes: lounging in or around the neighborhood, hotel, or apartment pool. Or, if you're lucky enough, you might have plenty of beach trips lined up. While you likely have the essentials packed and ready to go—like sunscreen, towels, and cold drinks—you also want to make sure that your makeup looks on point too.
Although water and makeup are notorious enemies, with the right products, you can rock a splash-proof makeup look that will keep its cool no matter how hot it is outside.
Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
Eyeliner is notorious for smudging and smearing seemingly as soon as a drop of water hits it, but if you want to rock a luxurious look as you lounge by the pool, it's a must for many of us. Choosing a waterproof liquid eyeliner is a must to make sure that your bold, defined eye look stays in place no matter what.
If you’re going for an understated look, just apply a quick swipe with the tip across your top lid. If you use a product with a vegan formula that utilizes Semi-Permanent Micropigment Technology™ and lash line-nourishing vitamins, like Infinity Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner™ from Thrive Causemetics, your defined eye look will be waterproof and ready to take a swim.
Protect Against Sweat
Splashes from the pool or waves at the beach aren’t the only moisture you need to worry about. With the sun high in the sky, sweat is an inevitable accessory of your look. The good news is that with sweat proof makeup versions of your favorite products, you won't need to worry about a little sweat cramping your style. From lipstick to eyeshadow, bronzer, and more, if you look around you can find waterproof, sweat-proof, or water resistant variants of your favorite products. No matter the look you're going for as you lounge by the pool, make sure that it stays put when things start heating up.
Broad Spectrum Protection
While basking in the sun for an entire afternoon is one of the pleasures you can often only enjoy during the warm months (or on vacation), if you get too much sunlight, you can do some severe damage to your skin. Beyond the painful sunburn for days after, over time, UVA and UVB rays can cause all sorts of skin-damaging problems.
While lathering yourself up in sunblock isn't always ideal, if you go with a makeup product with built-in broad spectrum SPF protection, your look will not only turn heads, but you'll also have the protection you need for healthy skin. Look for a CC cream that works like an upgraded tinted moisturizer with SPF so you’ll have a smooth foundation to build the rest of your look on, and you’ll promote skin health too. Add it to your bag along with some trusty sunscreen for the rest of your body and you’ll be sure to have a fun, safe time by the pool.
