Long weekends spent by any body of water, pool, or even by the barbecue in your backyard with friends (and ample beverages) call for a quick and fresh makeup menu. You don't want to be wearing loads of obvious powder makeup when sitting outside in the sun and you don't want what you are wearing to be of any maintenance whatsoever. So I've rounded up a few favorites that seem to wear on the face like men and wine - they get better with age. Go ahead, bask in the sun and in the glory of having nothing to do for this holiday weekend and definitely don't worry about a makeup malfunction with these guys by your side.

The base is what this look is built upon, because I'm not going near any products that will do anything besides look like my skin, but better. The Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint is simply undetectable, but will even out the overall tone of the skin and add a bit of a natural looking glow. Kind of like a bit of good sleep in a bottle. A bit of warmth will pair well with this fresh look so I'll also massage a bit of a liquid bronzer, like the Perricone M.D. No Bronzer Bronzer into the hollows of my cheeks and pat upwards and into the temples. This stuff gives skin the definition of beach bronzed skin and is virtually flawless looking. 

To amp up the 'just been in the sun' look even more, a red-based cream blush like the Nars Matte Multiple in Siam is perfect. It gives my cheeks a dose of the exact color they would turn on their own after a bit of time outdoors. For a no-maintenance, but nonetheless, juicy lip I love a rosy tinted balm like the Korres Lip Butter in Quince. The color of this balm is perfect and gives your mouth the same appearance as it would have after snacking on fresh berries. Lastly, the eyes get a bit of glossing over with the RMS Cream Eyeshadow in Solar. I once described this as the one eyeshadow everyone should own because it's just about the most perfect glossy bronze ever. 

I hope you all enjoy your weekends and don't forget to try out a look like this one.
