10 tips for looking sexy this summer!

  1. Instead of blush, try a little bronzer. Apply it across the apple of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and your temples. You’ll have that sun-kissed look without the sun damage. Extra bonus: Add a little bronzer to your decollete to make it pop.

  2. Shimmer it up. When you let your arms or legs go bare, play them up with a shimmering lotion.
  3. Hydrate. Don’t look like a dried up prune. When you get dehydrated your skin can look dull and your lips dry and cracked. So, remember to carry a couple extra bottles of water with you and drink up.
  4. Feminine in flowers. Nothing says summer evening elegant like a flower in your hair. If you’ve just ended a day at the beach, pull your hair away from your face with a barrette and slip a flower in the barrette. It’s quick, easy, simple and very sexy.
  5. Be sandal ready. Treat yourself to a pedicure to make sure your toes and heels are ready for their summer debut.
  6. Don’t over do it. Keep make-up and hair simple and natural, like you just stepped off the beach.
  7. Summer jewels. In the warm summer months hair usually goes shorter or up, so opt for some cute drop or dangly earrings. Also when showing off your legs, try a cute anklet or a fun toe ring with sandals.
  8. Packing savvy. Nothing is worst than luggaging a heavy suitcase in hot weather. Pack light by making wise choices. Take clothes that can pull double duty and change your looks with accessories. A couple extra necklaces are a lot lighter than a couple extra outfits. For example pack a cute summer dress that can work with high heels or flip-flops.
  9. Wet head. In the summer your hair can get dry, you colors can go flat and blondes can go green. Before dipping in the ocean or diving into the pool, pre-wet you hair with clean water. Extra bonus: Keep a bottle of spray conditioner handy for after your swim to battle the after swim tangles and frizz.
  10. Sun-block! Sun-block! Sun-block! The lobster look it out; besides protecting your skin now, applying adequate sun-block will have you looking great for years to come.

“Like other Big Moves shows, Big Spender will be a mix of audience favorites and brand-new numbers, led by Filling the Stage, Big Moves’ musical theater company, which returns with three hot new numbers, including one collaboration with the Phat Fly Girls for a super-fly twist on a stripper classic. In a daring, reality-show twist, three would-be Big Moves-NY dancers will get their Big Moves debut on Saturday night, when they audition their sassy, burlesque-y number live! In addition to these fresh, new faces, we’re thrilled to welcome back to the Big Moves stage the plus-sized performers we know and love, including Seleka with bellydance, drag star Sweetie, singer/songwriter Nedra Johnson, and comedic actress Janie Martinez.”
