Hi, my name is Virginia and I'm completely clueless when it comes to getting ready for an outdoor party or event.

Sure, I love to experiment with makeup trends -- but that doesn't mean that I've never shown up at a June barbecue wearing the exact same look I'd tried out for Valentine's Day. You'd think that the smeared eyeliner, shiny face, and visible sweat-stains at the end of the summertime party would serve as a bitter wakeup call and force my hand into adjusting my routine to accommodate the seasons. But, somehow I never fully get it and repeat the mistake more often than I'd like to admit.

So, how's a girl supposed to get ready, look cute, and have everything stay in place when the weather heats up? I asked the pros for their best tips for a fresh, seasonal look -- and to help me re-jigger my routine for summer so that I can feel and look cool and collected now matter how hot it gets.

If you're tired of melting into a pool of your own goop, follow my lead and jump into this pool of cool knowledge, and get ready for your most glamorous summer yet.

See how not to sweat the small stuff -- or at all -- with these hot tips.
