Get tips on how to be "poolside pretty" this summer


If you were to ask me a few years ago about my idea of "poolside pretty", I probably would have talked about waterproof mascara and stuff like that. This year though, my idea of poolside pretty is a really clean, natural look.

There's just something so refreshing about being sun-kissed and free of any makeup in the summer, and I just think it looks SO beautiful when you see someone at the pool who is really confident hanging out without any on. Because if you think about it, you really don't even need any makeup to soak up the sun or swim in a pool. Even the best waterproof makeup can sometimes smudge or run, and trust me, that looks a lot worse than if you weren't wearing any at all to begin with.

So lately I've been trying to be that girl rocking the bare face at the pool. And even though sometimes I wish I had a little makeup on, it does feel really nice and it gets more and more comfortable each time!

What's your idea of poolside pretty this season? Share your thoughts below!
