Summer is OFFICIALLY here and while weeks of BBQs, filmy tops and shorts lie ahead, so do schvitzy makeup situations and, unfortunately, sunburns, if you’re not careful. Luckily, I’ve got some tips from makeup maven Pat McGrath and dermatologist to the stars Dr. Doris Day on how to keep you makeup flawless and your skin clear and glow

For achieving lashes worthy of a drag queen that LAST throughout a heatwave, it’s all about COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Waterproof Mascara. The lengthening formula contains nylon fibers, the same material used for lash extensions, and the brush is specially designed to give expert precision and control for spidery, inky lashes. But as LeVar Burton famously said on Reading Rainbow, don’t take MY word for it. Take guru Pat McGrath’s. The Global Creative Design Director for P & G Beauty says, “This mascara gives lashes incredibly lush length and volume. With two coats of this mascara applied to curled lashes, the eyes look instantly larger and more vibrant. This mascara creates the impact of false lashes without the fuss.”
As for the rest of your facial, I don’t have to tell you: Sunscreen is MANDATORY–every day in the summer. This one is a great option as it moisturizes simultaneously, saving you at least one hellacious step in your busy morning. Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer is a non-greasy lightweight hydrator that provides skin with moisture while delivering protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Dr. Doris Day offers this advice: “I always give my patients this general guideline for applying sunscreen: A teaspoon of product will cover your face, and a shot glass is ample for the body. If you’re outside playing sports, swimming, or gardening, you need an SPF of at least 30. I like Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer SPF 30 because it’s lightweight, won’t clog pores and provides broad spectrum protection.”
