We’re in full swing for summer – these are some of my faves for beating the heat and looking hot!

When I tell you that I wore this concealor stick under my eyes during a recent heat wave here in NYC, was literally dripping with sweat, and had zero, ZERO!!, creases, believe it and get on the website. Judith August’s Everything Pencil is perfect for covering under eye circles, age spots, bruises – you name it – and it comes in six colors sure to match each skintone.

How tired are you of your mascara melting down your face as you marathon through your day? Pick up Dianne Brill’s Lash Lingerie Extensions Kit and you will worry no more! Inside the sweet little hatbox lie a set of corner lashes for when you’re feeling more natural, full lashes for more drama, and sparkly lashes for the Britney in all of us.

Who didn’t see the Vanity Fair cover of Tom Ford with Keira and Scarlett lying nude in all their ivory skinned glory? Well, the man doesn’t just pose with naked girls, he also has come up with a beautiful new line of neutrals for Estee Lauder. My favorites are The Eyeliner in noiree – a creamy chocolate brown liner that gives the perfect smudge – and The Lip Shine in coralee – an intense orange lip color that leaves the perfect soft apricot color if applied lightly.

If you’re spending all your time out on your boat (then we need to get to know each other!) and your sunparched lips need some attention, pick up by terry’s Rose Balm Flaconnette. Its creamy texture stimulates cellular renewal and protects with an SPF 15. The smell of roses certainly doesn’t hurt either!

If you’re a grease slick like me you’ve found that no mattifier really helps. So, we snuggle up to blotting sheets and powders that end up leaving us look like we’ve been dunked in talc. Check out Three Custom Color’s Loose Translucent Powder. The formula works on the palest of pale to fairly deeply toned skin, absorbs oil without leaving you chalky looking, and gives a silky, breathable finish to the skin – I love it!
