Good Day Sunshine

SUMMER SCENARIO: The forecast for your company's annual picnic is above 90 degrees — and raccoon eyes plus smeared blush don't exactly scream future VP.

QUICK FIX: To keep your cool, celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw suggests substituting your beauty staples for waterproof formulas. Tinted eye primers or setting sprays are another option for keeping your look smudge-free. Laura Gellar's Tinted Waterproof Eye Spackle will transform any shadow you apply on top into a waterproof formula. And to keep your focus on networking and not on how your makeup looks, Barose advises avoiding sticky glosses, which may get stuck in your hair.
