Step-by-step guide on pool party look  

Wondering how to get ready for a pool party? We have the answers. Rock your upcoming pool party event with this easy-peasy pool party makeup guide.  

Step 1: Prime and prep

Pool parties usually take place outdoors, which means you would get prolonged exposure to the sun. This can make your face sweaty and cause your makeup to smudge. To prevent this, start your face makeup with a mattifying primer. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Primer will help you get long-lasting makeup for up to 16 hours. This primer diminishes your pores, absorbs and controls oil, and moisturises and smoothens the skin, ensuring that you’re ready for your pool party.  

Step 2: Conceal effectively

Since you might be stepping into the pool eventually, we’d recommend you to skip the foundation and go in straight with the concealer. Concealing helps brighten the high points of your face such as the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones and centre of your forehead. Moreover, this step helps to cover dark circles, acne scars, and banish blemishes. For a natural, yet snatched pool party look, go for the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and apply it using the facelifting technique. In case you don’t want to skip foundation, then go for a waterproof foundation for swimming. Using waterproof foundation for swimming is ideal as it will prevent product meltdown when you come out of the water and ensure your entire pool party look stays intact. You can use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your perfect foundation and concealer shade match.     

Step 3: Sculpt with contour

Add some definition to your pool party look by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. Create an effect of shadow and light and take your simple pool party look up a notch by using the contour stick. Apply the stick well on your nose. This will add sharpness to your final look.  

Step 4: Colour your cheeks

Give your cheeks a naturally flushed look with a pink or rose blush. Apply it on the apples of your cheeks to make your skin look fresh and healthy. For a natural pool party look, you can opt for the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush collection.  

Step 5: Put some glow on

Amp up your pool party look by applying a highlighter. Begin by applying the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter on your cheekbones in an upward motion, and then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow. This will add a dazzling shine and glow to your skin.  

Step 6: Let your eyes talk

Keep your eye makeup bare and almost minimum as a dip in the pool can lead you to rub your eyes and stain them. Start by filling in sparse or uneven brows with the Maybelline New York’s Define and Blend Brow Pencil to achieve fine, natural-looking and defined eyebrows. Go for the nude eyeshadow from the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette to colour your eyelids. Don’t miss the waterproof makeup for swimming. Finish off your pool party look by applying a few coats of the Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara to your lashes for a long-lasting effect.  

Step 7: Fill in your pout

A long amount of time in the pool can result in sunburn pout, something that is not only extremely painful but dangerous too. Prevent your lips from chapping or drying by using the Maybelline Baby Lips Lipcare balm. This lip balm is enriched with SPF 20 and provides sun protection and keep your lips hydrated all the time. Complete your waterproof makeup for swimming by adding colour to your lips. Play up your pout by choosing your favourite lipstick shade from the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick range. 

Step 8: Set and slay

The final step to ensuring that your pool party look is perfect is to keep it in place with a setting spray. Pick the Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Setting Spray that provides a matte finish and controls extra shine, leaving behind no room for touch-ups. This spritz will prevent your makeup from melting or fading and will leave your skin feeling soothed and refreshed.
