Summer Essentials – Pool Party!



One of the questions I get asked the most when doing someone’s makeup is “how do I get super waterproof makeup?” or “how do I make my makeup stay on?” This is key for one of the season’s best festivities – a pool party!


When making sure makeup is waterproof, there are 3 key products that I like to use:

1. a pore-minimizing & mattifying primer that will lock down makeup – like Flawless & Poreless Primer

2. an intensely waterproof mascara with a hint of blue for a brightening effect that’s gorgeous in the sun – like Lash Booster Mascara in Blackest Blue

3. a longwearing lip stain marker in a natural shade of pink – like Lip Blush in Youth

Enhance your poolside look with some compliment-guaranteed yellow nail polish, a chic bikini, and of course, some solid SPF power (this Weleda one is gentle on all skin types and never makes me break out, even in really hot weather).

Most importantly, for a pool party or the beach – a sarong! It’s my one essential on holiday – it doubles as a beach cover up (key!), scarf for burnt skin, towel and baby blanket. LOVE multitasking items :)



Yes, fancy pool parties are great, but I have to say that I enjoy my time with my family the most :)



My dream pool? It’s one that nature created – the mermaid lagoon on the gorgeous Greek island of Thassos…nothing beats it!



I do love a good book, but you’ll most often find me reading my trusty UK Vogue when by the pool :)
