Look Amazing This Season: Healthy Nails, Smooth Hair, Glowing Skin
Streamline! "Mix in a few drops of liquid bronzer to warm up your foundation and minimize your routine," says Nick Barose, celebrity makeup artist for Clarins.
Get staying power. To prevent midday eye-shadow and blush meltdowns, use gels, stains, or cream-to-powder formulas. "They'll stay put even if your skin turns into an oil slick," says Mary Schook, owner of Beauty by Mary Schook salon in New York City.
Stamp out shine. "Nothing refreshes your complexion faster than blotting sheets," says makeup artist Alison Raffaele (try Clean & Clear Morning Burst Oil Absorbing Sheets, $4.99, drugstores).
Keep nails nude. Save the plums and eggplants for fall. "Sheer, shimmery beige polish disguises chips, so you can spend more time poolside instead of in a salon," says celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal. Bonus: Metallic lacquers adhere better -- and last longer -- than the creamy kind.
Ban brushes! "If you can't swipe it on with your finger, save it for next season," says Roncal.
