2. Activate your  Screensaver

The sun is at its meanest at noon, so be sure to cover up with a minimum 30 SPF

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

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)
