Hair and makeup tricks for sittin' pretty poolside
The beach or pool is no place for shadow and liner, especially when you’re constantly in and out of the water. Instead, simply swipe on some waterproof mascara. It will still make your eyes look pretty and defined but without the smudging.
Skip heavy foundation and just use a good moisturizer with SPF. If you have any zits or blemishes try a tinted moisturizer or just use a dab of concealer on problem areas.
If you’re looking to add a little color to your poolside makeup routine, try a tinted lip balm with SPF. It will give you a hint of color without the icky stickiness of lip gloss, while still protecting your lips from harmful UV rays.

Play nice ‘n’ easy
Windy days at the beach can have your hair flying all over the place. After a dip in the water, put your hair in an easy side braid and secure the bottom with a no-pull elastic in a fun color to prevent breakage.

Tie a pretty silk scarf as a headband. Place the scarf at your hairline and then secure in a knot at the nape of your neck and let the rest of the scarf hang down your back. Such an adorable and fun way to keep your hair off your face!
