6 Pool Party-Proof Makeup Essentials

Holiday season has officially started and if you’re heading to a pool party this summer, you’re going to want your makeup to make a statement, as well as standing up to the splash-proof, sweat-proof and party-proof test. We’re talking flawless bases, waterproof eyes and a setting spray that means business. When you combine hot temperatures, the threat of splashes and more than a few drinks into one situation, there’s a strong chance of most of your makeup sliding off until it’s non-existent. But fear not, we’ve got together the best products to keep your makeup fresh from the start of the party until the early hours.

Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara

Some mascaras only need the slightest hint of moisture to result in under eye transfer, which is definitely not the look we’re going for. The Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara is 100% waterproof, sweat-proof and budge-proof and lasts for an impressive 24 hours. It does all of this whilst still enhancing, curling and volumising lashes for a statement eye look. If it’s good enough to last through sports, then it’s going to last at a pool party.

BH Cosmetics Power Pencil Waterproof

Another eye product that will stand the test of time (and heat) is the BH Cosmetics Waterproof Power Pencil. The waterproof formula glides onto lids with impressive colour payoff in just one swipe. You won’t need to worry about this eyeliner rubbing off as it’s completely budge-proof for a lasting finish. Available in a range of striking colours, from matte electric blue to rose gold shimmers and a classic black matte. We love the Shimmer Gold shade for summer sunset vibes.

The Makeup Finishing Spray

Skindinavia’s The Makeup Finishing Spray is a summer staple at BEAUTY BAY HQ and for good reason. The industry-renowned favourite is specially developed to last in the heat, rather than evaporating off your face, which causes makeup to fade. This setting spray is the ultimate – there won’t be a single spot of melted foundation, faded bronzer or creased eyeshadow in sight.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Power Duo

When it comes to makeup, brows are one of the most important elements no matter what your vibe, so no one wants them running halfway down their face. Of course, the ultimate brown queen has got us covered with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Power Duo, a set that combines their classic Brow Wiz with the Dipbrow Gel. Thanks to waxy texture of the Brow Wiz and the gel-pomade formula of the Dipbrow Gel, your brows will be bold and budge-proof until you take them off after the party has ended.

Revolution Conceal And Define Concealer

‘Coverage’ can be a daunting word when the temperature is hot, especially at a pool party, but the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is the perfect combination of lightweight, yet long wearing. This concealer counteracts any dark circles and blemishes for a smooth, matte finish, creating a flawless base that will last in humid conditions. Available in a wide range of shades, you’ll find your perfect match that will have your photo-ready in seconds.

Melt Cosmetics Liquid Set Lipstick

The perfect pout is essential when it comes to parties, but you’re not going to be wanting the hassle of constantly topping up your lip colour. That’s why the Melt Cosmetics Liquid Set Lipstick is your perfect partner. The liquid formula dries down to a comfortable, matte finish that won’t need re-applying every half hour. The shade Fuse is a fail-safe peachy beige nude that looks great with any look.
