I spent a heavenly day yesterday floating in our best friends pool in my new unicorn floaty (thank you Prime Day!) sipping on some ice cold rose!
When I was getting ready yesterday I realized how much I change up my make up in the summer - specifically when I know I am headed to the pool or beach. I rounded up my top picks for sweaty days that can stand up to a few splashes!
First, you don't want to go caking on a ton of foundation if you're just going to sweat it off - I personally use a BB cream as my foundation every day and pool days are no exception.
I love this one and have been using it for years - they stopped carrying it in drug stores but I stock up on Amazon. It gives me some pretty good coverage, a dewy fresh finish and most importantly some SPF. Link: http://amzn.to/2tjtAbi
Depending on your needs you might be able to skip this step, I then add some concealer under eye or as spot treatment. I really love the IT cosmetics bye bye under eye, its waterproof, stays put and doesn't get all gross when you get sweaty. Link: http://amzn.to/2t8AifY
Next up, tame those brows! A clean polished brow can do so much for your face. I am super fortunate that my sister, Erin is an amazing brow artist and helps keep my caterpillars in line. I do have a few scars in by brow line so I use Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Definer in Soft Brown to pencil them in. This is the easiest to use and the most long lasting brow product I have been able to find. Link: http://amzn.to/2vuIFTQ
I like to use a nude eye shadow on my whole lid for some even coverage and a little pop. I generally reach for MAC "Naked Lunch" for this purpose, and I would share a photo of the shade however I reach for this shade so often that when I went to take a picture there was barely anything left on the palate!
Next up, a little highlight and blush in one - again back to Anastasia and the Glow Kit. I have been using "Amber Gold" on my cheeks. Link: http://amzn.to/2vuLggy
Now mascara... this is a tricky one... right now I am using the waterproof version of "Better Than Sex" by Too Faced. And in full disclosure its impossible to get off, like its on there until your lashes fall out which I don't love. If anyone has any recommendations here I would love to hear them!
The last thing I always have with me for pool days (and being out side in general)is this awesome brush on sun screen I found, I actually got it as a two pack at Costco but Amazon has it as well - its awesome because it gives you a little coverage AND reapplies your SPF!
