Good Day Sunshine
SUMMER SCENARIO: Your potential in-laws invite you sailing, but snapshots of you with windblown hair and a greasy face won't be fit for the family album.
QUICK FIX: Impress his parents by looking polished and put together with simple, natural makeup. "Skip powder because it'll cake when you sweat," advises celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose, who works with Rashida Jones and Vera Farmiga. Instead of blotting papers, he suggests stashing Viva paper-towel sheets to help mop away sweat: "Sometimes blotting paper isn't enough and tissues will leave white fuzz." For a glamorous coif, Tina Dizon, owner of The Private Room salon in Beverly Hills, recommends tying back hair with a scarf. ("You can twist the fabric to create a rope-style headband.") Just remember to smooth a little oil or leave-in conditioner on the ends. "With wind, hair is going to tangle. Oil keeps away frizz and protects hair," Dizon adds.
