Lilliana Vazquez – The Cheap Chica's Guide To Style
Candace Rose: With summer officially right around the corner, how can we get that perfect summer look?
Lilliana Vazquez: "Well, you know it's a combination of products but one thing I hate about the summer time is the heat and the humidity, so you want to look for products that are long wearing and long lasting and one of my absolute favorites for the summer is L'Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipcoulour. It comes in 30 great shades and what makes this product special is that it goes on really smooth, get lots of shine but it lasts for 10 hours. And what makes it last for so long is the patented color fix technology that prevents the lipstick from flaking and drying out your lips but still lasts such a long time. Put it on in the morning and you don't have to think about it the rest of the day."

CR: How else can we freshen up our look?
LV: "Well, a really easy way is to start with your smile, so you want to look for a toothpaste that cleans your teeth but also cares for your teeth. That's why I really like Arm & Hammer Complete Care Enamel Strengthening Toothpaste, what this does is it not only whitens and freshens your breath but it also rebuilds enamel thanks to liquid calcium and fluoride formula in this product. You really are going to get unsurpassed enamel strengthening from this too and what's great about is it's completely affordable, it's really inexpensive."

CR: The summer heat can also be harsh on our hair, do you have any favorite tips?
LV: "For your hair, I think it's always important to use a great conditioner and you know the heat is also really harsh on our skin and you don't want to wear a ton of makeup. It's really important to try and go as light as possible and that's why I love Elizabeth Arden's brand new Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 20. What's great about this is it's lightweight so you can get a nice fresh look but you can actually build the coverage so you can go from light to medium depending on what you like. It comes in a compact and it has a built in grinder, so it actually dispenses just the right amount of product every time so you're not wasting any product, you're not going through too much product and you're going to get perfect coverage every time you use it."

CR: Do you have any additional tips or information you'd like to share?
LV: "Yeah, I do. You know it's the summer and the weather is nice, so get outside and get active. I always say if you're active, you're healthy – so get outside, take advantage of the weather, go for a nice long walk; make sure you drink plenty of water this summer. It's really important to stay hydrated and for information on all the products I featured you can go to News2Know.com."
