Face

Lighten up and let your skin breathe with the wonderful Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm SPF 30. Skin perfectors and SPF give you everything you need to just swipe on and go. I reviewed Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm last year and was pleased with it, except for the fact that there was no SPF in it. This new updated version contains SPF 30 making it both perfect and easy for summer.

Lips and Cheeks

Convertible Color is perfect for both lips & cheeks. The color peony is creamy, lush and the perfect peachy shade for almost any skin tone. Just dab on lips and cheeks with your fingers; it will sink right in for a natural summer flush. Peach is such a natural pretty shade for summer, both with or without a tan.

Eyes

The secret to fabulous poolside eyes are the products. They need to last and hold up to all the elements. Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara. This is the perfect combination for defined eyes that won't smudge or budge.

It doesn't get much simpler than this now does it? Leave your summer makeup tips and favorite fast products in the comments.
