When Clinique first invited me to their LA summer pool party all I heard were two words: underwater photoshoot. Get a makeover then dive into the pool wearing a pretty dress? I certainly didn’t have to think twice before saying yes!
I kicked off the day at the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills getting my hair and makeup done. My two favorite new Clinique products we used were the Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder (great for providing a matte finish to my normally shiny skin) and Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer (Melon Pop is the perfect coral shade for summer!).
After a light breakfast, it was time to dive in for my America’s Next Top Model moment. I have a whole new respect for models… making a calm face while being submerged in water is much harder than it looks! After the shoot, I refueled with DIY macaron ice cream sandwiches. It was such a sweet ending to an incredibly fun experience.

This post looks so amazing. I love when companies organise truly amazing interesting event. Do you have any final review for a powder? I’m on a market for something “shine, see you later” for summer!

Thanks so much! It was such a fun day. Yes! I love the powder. I get crazy shiny for summer so I’ve been using it since the event and it’s been great 🙂
Very cool! I did an underwater shoot once…hungover. It was a nightmare. It’s SO MUCH harder than it looks. You are a pro! So beautiful! xo
