We asked makeup artist Anna Papadopoulos for international cosmetics guru Napoleon Perdis about looking foxy this summer season and about the hottest looks for summer.

We like: Napoleon Sheer Genius Foundation, $72. Weightless, luminous coverage, based on hydrogel technology. The foundation contains active ingredients to boost skin elasticity and moisture.
