Wear sunscreen! Otherwise it’s “Rays today, raisins tomorrow.” – Loretta Young
Because lip gloss behaves like a mirror, wear a sunscreen-infused lip balm underneath to prevent burning.
Check the expiry dates on last season’s sunscreens.
Buy sunscreen in multiples and bulk so you can distribute them to family members and loved ones. Tuck extras wherever you’ll need to reach for it: your purse, car, boat, by front and back doors.
E-mail me directly from the pool, the beach, or your local patio. I’ll answer your beauty questions and concerns from the air-conditioned DDB Studio—our version of summer school!
May your lazy, hazy days include sun-safe fun and memorable, magical moments.

Peach Supreme - Summer is finally here and many of you are asking what should I do to update my makeup? Cosmetic colours for June through August have always leaned to the brightest sector of the colour wheel: punchy pinks, vibrating violets, outrageous oranges and courageous corals for lips, cheeks, eyes and nails. For me, one colour that rises above all the usual suspects is the pretty and perky Peach. Luscious, fun and friendly, peach has a way of conveying the sweet sense of southern charm, conjuring images of daiquiris and peach cobbler enjoyed on a sun-dappled front porch. Peach is the softer side of orange and makes a wonderful alternative when pink and coral is just too much. In Chinese culture, peach represents immortality; in beauty, peach makeup never feels out of style.
This lovely shade, however, is often misunderstood. It amuses me when someone describes this seemingly perplexing colour as a variant of pink or as a sister to orange. Peach is often confused with apricot, which is yellower, and coral, which pinker and brighter. Artistically speaking, peach can be found in the red-orange sector of the colour wheel between rows 1 – 3.
Peach looks best when it’s swept over the cheeks and lips for a sensational sunset feel. Wear it on top of your favourite lipstick and blush for a softer side of you. Peach pairs beautifully with white, neutral and golden-bronzed tones. Use cool blues, teals and turquoises for the most complimentary combination and tropical twist with eye liner, shadow, and wardrobe pieces.

There’s no quicker way to update your look than with a brand-new lipstick. Pick one of the prettiest shades from the parade of punchy pinks, cunning corals, oh-so oranges, and vivacious violets.
Bright or bold, these fruit-punch shades can be worn by everyone, unless you’re considering the colour orange. This tricky shade works best if you have pearly white teeth. Anything less will emphasize the difference. In this case, go for coral--the happy medium between pink and orange.
Inspired by the tantalizing colours of tropical flowers, The DDB Spring Lipstick Collection is luscious, vivid, and infused with skin-nourishing ingredients. These long-lasting formulas offer amplified patent-leather shine. Each one makes a statement all on its own, or can be layered to create additional shades.
