The weatherman promised HOT weather, so here are a few tips to keep your sexy on the cool side while you are enjoying the festivities.
1. Don’t let them see you sweat
I love these handy wipes by DERMAdoctor. They banish perspiration for hours! Med e Tate $48 Dermadoctor.com

2. Activate your Screensaver
The sun is at its meanest at noon, so be sure to cover up with a minimum 30 SPF
SHEER PHYSICAL UV DEFENSE SPF 50 by Skinceuticals is has a sheer matte finish and works well on dark skin.$30 Skinceuticals.com
3. Fake your Flush
Use a double-duty lip and cheek stain for sexy flush. I am such a fan of LORAC Sheer Wash in the travel size.
Try Sheer Magic, a pretty raspberry. $20 Sephora.com
4. Waterproof Your Lashes
I’m not particular about using a waterproof mascara on a daily basis, BUT, if you are out in the sun all day, you don’t want it melting!
My favorite mascara — L’Oreal Voluminious in the waterproof formula. $7.99 (but usually on sale) Walgreens.com
That’s all you need! Have fun. Maybe I will see you at En Vogue! For more hot weather beauty tips, read Avoid a Meltdown: Summer’s Best Waterproof Makeup.
