If you鈥檝e ever tried to look cute at the pool or beach but always end up leaving looking a little 鈥渨ashed up,鈥 we feel your pain. Sometimes, our makeup moves just can鈥檛 withstand the heat and water that comes along with outdoor summer soir茅es. But with the right products, pool parties don鈥檛 have to be a total beauty disaster. You can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing you鈥檙e able to put your best face forward and look fab both in and out of the water. This聽12-step guide of waterproof wonders will keep you glam from day to night 鈥 no matter how much sand, sun or sweat gets in your way.


Step 1:聽Moisturize

Murad Oil-Control Mattifier ($40): There鈥檚 really nothing cute about a greasy, sweaty face 鈥 especially when posing for pictures poolside. Luckily, this shine-reducing moisturizer delivers a matte surface instantly, reduces breakouts, protects from the sun and helps control oil for up to eight hours. Really, what doesn鈥檛 this mattifier do?


Step 2: Prime It Up

Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-hr Perfecting Primer ($31): If you鈥檙e looking for a skin-perfecting primer that鈥檚 waterproof, minimizes pores, prevents creases, nourishes and softens and protects against the sun鈥檚 damaging rays, look no further. Made with natural fruit- and plant-derived extracts like avocado oil, this primer is perfect for any skin type and instantly makes your complexion look more Kardashian-esque. Oh, and the best part? It helps keep makeup in place for up to 12 hours.


Step 3: Conceal

Lanc么me Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer ($31): If you鈥檙e spending more of your time sipping cocktails than sleeping this summer, you need this concealer in your life. Made with a waterproof formula that won鈥檛 crease or fade, this under-eye wonder provides a natural-looking coverage, eliminates the signs of fatigue, evens the skin tone, minimizes fine lines and more. See ya later (or hopefully never), dark circles!


Step 4: Cover, Cover, Cover

Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation ($36): Sun protection? Check. Water resistance? Check. Anti-aging benefits? Check. A natural-looking, luminous finish? Quadruple check. This lightweight foundation (that boasts an insane number聽of benefits) will seriously change your summer. And once you try it, there鈥檚 no turning back. Because why would you show up to a pool party with average foundation that will melt right off when you can have gorgeous, glow-y J-Lo skin all night long? Plus, it has聽SPF 42 and protection against UVA and UVB rays, so you can rest easy knowing your skin is safe from the sun and looking its best. We swear this makeup must-have isn鈥檛 too good to be true!


Step 5:聽Bronzify

Hourglass Superficial Waterproof Bronzer ($45): Unfortunately, not all of us are naturally gifted with Beyonc茅鈥檚 beautifully bronzed skin, but that doesn鈥檛 mean we can鈥檛 and won鈥檛 fake it all summer long. With this extended-wear, waterproof bronzer that withstands high humidity and extreme moisture, you can show up to the beach with a radiant glow and leave with it too. Trust us, you need this in your beach bag.

Infallible Shadow - Perpetual Purple

Step 6:聽Make Those Eyes Pop

L鈥橭r茅al Infallible 24-hour Eye Shadow ($8): You can hide behind your sunglasses during the day, but once the sun sets and the party starts heating up, you鈥檒l be glad you chose a waterproof shadow (like L鈥橭r茅al鈥檚 Infallible) that lasts from dusk to dawn. This shimmering, powder-cream shadow is crease-resistant, fade-resistant and boasts color that just doesn鈥檛 quit. So take those sunnies off and get ready for an epic summer night free of any eyeshadow touch-ups.


Step 7:聽Add Some Drama

Stila Stay All-Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($22): A liquid liner that truly lives up to its name? We鈥檙e sold! This thin-tipped product glides on smoothly, stays in place without smudging or running and comes in a variety of hot hues like Indigo, Paradise Pink and Emerald. So go ahead and dive in without having to worry about your sexy cat-eye makeup look turning聽cat-astrophic once it hits the water 鈥 we dare you!


Step 8: Lash Out

CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara ($9): There鈥檚 nothing worse than hopping out of the water and looking in the mirror, only to find that streaks of mascara are running down your cheeks. This summer, don鈥檛 let runny lashes get the best of you. Try out CoverGirl鈥檚 Eye-Brightening Mascara聽鈥 a waterproof, volumizing lash-booster that enhances your natural eye color and stays where it鈥檚 supposed to.


Step 9: Stay Rosy

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gel茅e ($22): Okay, we admit it 鈥 we鈥檙e a little coco cray cray (translation: We鈥檙e uhb-sessed with drinking coconut water). Why, you ask? It hydrates, moisturizes and adds the perfect glow to our skin. So when we found a blush that鈥檚 infused with 50 percent pure coconut water, we almost couldn鈥檛 contain ourselves. This buildable, blendable blush hybrid may look like a cream formula, but it gives the long-lasting effect (14 hours!) of a gel stain. And the color options are stunning.


Step 10:聽Pucker Up

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color ($24): Pool-proof your pout and keep your lips looking luxe with a long-lasting lip color that won鈥檛 transfer or fade. With their 15+ head-turning colors to choose from and a creamy, non-sticky texture that glides on effortlessly, Make Up For Ever鈥檚 Aqua Rouge聽lipstick will have you聽soaking up the sun while still looking fab for Instagram. Pro tip: Purchase a nude or light pink color and only apply a thin layer for a natural, summertime-fresh finish.


Step 11:聽Set It Right

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($30): The last thing you need while splashing around at a super sexy pool party is a makeup meltdown. But thanks to Urban Decay鈥檚 setting spray, you can give your makeup some serious staying power (up to 16 hours, to be exact). Just a couple quick spritzes will help keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush and concealer in place and help prevent cracking, smearing or fading 鈥 even in sizzling hot and humid temps.


Step 12: Remove, Rest + Repeat

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($7): So you finally have makeup that withstands water, but there鈥檚 one thing you鈥檙e missing: a product that actually takes it all off. Because no matter how fab your face looks 鈥 even after a day at the pool, no less 鈥 sleeping in your makeup is a definite beauty sin. These hydrating facial wipes not only dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup (yes, even the waterproof type), but they also leave the skin feeling soft and conditioned.
