It’s Summer! Gather your poolside makeup essentials!

Waterproof essentials to make your poolside look, your GOOD side.

Hello Summer! The temperature is warming up, the sun is shining, and pools and beaches everywhere are opening for the season. If you’re an organization guru, you may have already swapped your winter sweaters for your summer swimsuits… while others of us may live in organized chaos of year-round wardrobes. Just as with clothing, some makeup transitions better to poolside wear than others. It’s time to find a makeup look that doesn’t run (after all, you know how much lifeguards hate running on the pool deck). Thankfully, JAFRA’s magical makeup is here to float you some ideas that will make looking put-together a breeze!  

Look The Part: Poolside 

They say the eyes are the windows to our souls, and general eye contact is one of the most important ways we make a first impression. When it comes to waterproof eye makeup, it is best to keep it simple with a few great waterproof staples that will help you avoid smudge and raccoon eyes. These items are perfect for a minimalist and natural look and will fit in a compact bag that you can keep in your pool or beach bag, purse, or even in your car. They make it easy to look put-together any time and maintain your look through all your playtime in the water – and even if you choose to work out and sweat at the gym or get involved in some beach volleyball!   

JAFRA’s waterproof mascara options are one of my go-to minimal makeup items; when I only have time to do a “quick face” before walking out the door, this is one of the few makeup steps I do. JAFRA Lash Stretching Mascara stretches your lashes to new lengths – lengthening, lifting, thickening, and curling. Another great choice – and my personal favorite - is JAFRA High-Definition Waterproof Mascara that offers longer, fuller, more fabulous lashes. 

Set It and Forget It 

No, we’re not cooking a rotisserie chicken (anyone else immediately have some late-night television flashbacks? Ha-ha!), but I do want you to remember to “set” yourself – and your makeup! – up for success so that you can forget about touch ups and raccoon eyes. JAFRA Beauty Makeup Setting Spray is a multitasking and hydrating spray that will lock your makeup in place! Coconut water and glacier water deliver a burst of antioxidant-rich moisture to soothe and refresh skin while prolonging the life of your look. Setting spray is an essential part of any summer look, or pool & beach makeup bag!  

JAFRA Makeup Setting Spray is a lifesaver any time that you have a long day ahead of you. Whether you will be heading toward water or not, I recommend reaching for this if you know that you need a little extra help to make sure your makeup stays put for an extended period of time (i.e. an extra long day at work, events throughout the day, a long day in the sun, etc.).  

A Sunshine Boost 

The summer sun is a welcome arrival after the cold, dark winter… but we also need to remember to protect our skin from the potentially harmful UV rays.  

JAFRA’s ROYAL Boost Cover Me Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 provides invisible protection from UVA/UVB rays. It dries instantly, making it ideal for on-the-go application or use under makeup.  

JAFRA ROYAL Defy Multi-Performance Age Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is designed to protect thinning, mature skin from UVA/UVB rays and damaging free radicals. It is a powerful broad-spectrum SPF 50 in the form of an invisible finish lotion. It is specially formulated with ingredients like white truffle and vitamin E which help to hydrate, firm, and protect the skin.  

JAFRA’s Revitalize Solar Protection Fluid Broad-Spectrum SPF 50 is a no-grease formula that visibly restores skin while aiding in the defense against environmental aggressors. This amazing multifaceted fluid provides a defense against premature aging and the appearance of age spots, while defending skin against daily damage from sun, pollution, and free radicals.  

Some SUN for the Sun!  

Perfect for poolside and minimal makeup days, the JAFRA SUN line has a Tinted Face Protector Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50+. Providing perfectly matched sun protection, this SPF uses Color Match Technology and microencapsulated pigments to blur imperfections with a sheer, natural look, and lightweight, water-resistant broad spectrum light protection. The formula is oil-free and made with elderberry extract and Vitamin E to help condition the skin. For days where you go foundation-free but would like the same confidence that a full face of makeup affords you, this is the sunscreen that you want to have in your bag and on your face 

Another great essential for your to-go bag is JAFRA's Sun Spray On Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This is one of the easiest ways to make sure your skin is protected. This easy to use, non-aerosol spray comes in a light tropical scent and blends easily to deliver a comfortable, non-greasy finish. It is water-resistant and oil-free! Made with shea butter and vitamin E, it will help to keep your skin soft – which is always a plus!  

When The Sun Goes Down 

When the day is done and the sun has set, the pool has closed, the beach is dark… and it’s time to go homenow you need to take off your waterproof makeup, and sometimes the good ‘ol standbys just don’t cut it. JAFRA Beauty Makeup Remover will help your makeup melt away – even waterproof formulas. This hydrating formula instantly dissolves stubborn makeup to leave skin fresh, soft and hydrated.  

Once you’ve taken off your makeup and are indoors for the day – you may realize that you got more sun than you thought. If this does happen to you, then you may want to also include the JAFRA Sun Cooling After Sun Relief Lotion in your essentials bag. This lotion is an advanced moisturizer that will rehydrate sun-kissed skin, refresh, and cool with soothing aloe and botanicals, leaving you with softer, smoother skin. The cooling sensation is instant, and the lotion has a light tropical scent.  

Whatever minimal makeup essentials are in your waterproof pool-side bag, you have the freedom to be you – with a full face of makeup, a minimal natural look, or a bare face with sunscreen (because we always need sun protection). Throw on your swimsuit, sandals, sunglasses, and grab your pool bag! This summer is sure to be your best one yet with JAFRA protecting your skin and enriching your luscious lashes. Now all that’s left is to decide on a new novel to read between dips in the water; what genre will you choose?
