OUTFIT OF THE DAY: SUMMER DATE-NIGHT

STARS & SPOTS: An easy way to look super stylish is to mix prints. The reason why it works here is that both the star-print blouse and leopard-print clutch are in neutral shades. It gets complicated when you try to mix prints in bright colors. So stick with a neutral palette (animal print is the new neutral anyways) and you can’t go wrong. Try a silky drawstring short that’s perfect for summer date-nights and wear with sky-high strappy sandals to showcase your gorgeous, sun-kissed legs. And don’t forget to add a bangle (or two)—Ted Rossi is one of my favorite NYC jewelry designers.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: CREAM CLASSICS

Keep your wardrobe looking fresh with THE summer shade: goes-with-everything cream. I’m loving this lightweight linen scarf, a packable lace tee, stylish slides, and a buttery-soft python printed tote for long travel days. For your next mani/pedi, try my new favorite essie polish shade: Urban Jungle—a pearly, shimmering summer white. And if you haven’t experience one of Diptyque’s infamous scented candles… you definitely need to.

6 Sweat-Proof, Frizz-Busting Summer Beauty Essentials Experts Swear By

YouBeauty Style Expert Jacqui Stafford shares the skincare and makeup products she reaches for each summer.

6 Sweat-Proof, Frizz-Busting Summer Beauty Essentials Experts Swear By

Now that it’s summer, it’s time to tweak your beauty and makeup routine. Here’s what you need now: A does-everything moisturizer with SPF that sinks in instantly; lighter, more iridescent makeup shades that lift the eyes; and beauty insider secret tips to give your skin a youthful glow. Since I’ve been in the beauty and fashion industry a long time, here’s what I can’t live without every summer.

For Wrinkle-Free Skin: Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 High Protection Face
This is every editor’s favorite summer moisturizer—it’s lightweight, greaseless, soaks in within seconds and has unparalleled sun protection. If you can’t get an appointment with the celebrity dermatologist Fredric Brandt himself, you can get his skin-protecting magic in this tube instead.

Dr. Brandt UV SPF 30 High Protection Face, $35, SkinCareRx

 

For Frizz-Free Hair: Moroccanoil
I was terrified of any product with the word “oil” in it coming anywhere near my baby-fine hair. But on every photo shoot, hair stylists always whip out a bottle of this ultra-lightweight hair oil to tame and smooth frizzies for summer. I’m now obsessed with it.

Moroccanoil, $45

 

For a Matte Complexion: Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Paper
Another celebrity makeup artist secret: Use these blotting papers to keep shiny summer skin at bay without adding another layer of cakey face powder.

Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Paper, $19

For Camouflaging Redness: IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream With SPF 50+ 
I adore creator and CEO of IT Cosmetics Jamie Kern. She gave me one of her famed CC creams before my QVC show and now I can’t live without it. The coverage looks exactly like your own skin but better, and it instantly camouflages any redness or imperfections. It miraculously covered a brutal sunburn one vacation—enough for no one to realize that my nose looked like Rudolph’s. It’s incredible.

For Faking Looking Awake: Mally Beauty LightWand Eye Brightener
Superstar celeb makeup artist Mally Roncal—you know, the fab chick responsible for beauties like Beyoncé, J Lo, Rihanna and more—swears by this trick for summer: Just dot the product near your tear ducts and it’s like you got eight hours of sleepeven if you pulled a late summer night. I use this wand every single day, but it’s ideal for vacation or hot days when you can’t be bothered with any other makeup.

For Bright Eyes: NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto
With truly adjustable coverage, you can use these metallic eye shadows either wet or dry and get just as much sheer, light-reflecting, youth-enhancing shimmer as you want.

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto, $29

For Kissable Lips: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Gloss in Bellini
This is hands-down the best lip gloss on the planet in the perfect nearly nude shade.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Gloss in Bellini, $25

For a Risk-Free Tan: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad
This is the insider secret for sun-kissed, glowing skin without ever having to step outside in the sun. Just one swipe of these self-tanning wipes gives you that healthy vibrancy that will have everyone buzzing about how good you look when you haven’t been anywhere near a beach.
