Pool parties might seem like the perfect time to see people’s ‘real’ features, as there is no chance of concealing everything when you get into the pool. However, we’ve got this covered! Get ready and stick to these points to look your best at any summer pool party!
As you know, tanning is fine as long as you always wear sun screen. Sun block is the most important part of attending a pool party, cause who wants to end up looking like a tomato at the end of the day? That is exactly what you can avoid by using a solid SPF.

Get your beach hair ready for the party! It is as important to protect your hair from the sun as it is protecting the skin. You might think it looks better when it gets lighter, but this is actually a sign that your hair has gotten burnt. This means that it will appear dry and spongy. So, as easy as it sounds, you should protect it from harmful UV-rays.
Get your curls by using a beach wave product for the “just spent all day at the beach” impression! This makes hair look natural and styled at the same time.

Even if you are attending a pool party, this does not mean that you cannot wear any make up. Waterproof mascara was made for this! You can also apply concealer to cover any spots or dark circles. However, do not go over the top when applying as it will seem as if you have something to hide… and that is not the case! The trick is if your make up starts melting, just put those shades on!
The perfect way to get your skin to glow, even if it is not exactly make up, is by trying out a gradual tanner. About a week before the party, start working in that self-tanning product so that when you arrive to the party, it seems as if you have already been to many others this year! This is a great opportunity to switch into your summer wardrobe and get your dresses and skirts out for a walk, showing off that perfectly sun-kissed glow!

Nails are a really important factor. If almost no one likes feet, imagine if they are not polished? There is nothing worse than toenails that seem as they have never been touched. So, it is time to start talking about colours that are going to be hot this summer.
As always, a light shade of sky blue represents summer and complements all skin tones. Another hot colour would be sunflower yellow or passionate red.
Tip: Match your finger nails and toe nails as they make a good combination, making them appear neater

So, it’s time to start deciding on your swimsuit, start working on your summer looks and get ready for the next pool party!
