Punch up your look

by Diana Cerqueira

When it's 90 degrees out, the goal is simple: you want to look great with the least possible effort. By applying a single splash of bright makeup, you'll look completely put together (and totally on trend).

To pull off this hot look in the prettiest way possible, remember the golden rule: "Keep the focus to just one feature—eyes, cheeks, or lips," says Lori Taylor, lead makeup artist at Smashbox Cosmetics. You can always add further dazzle with a vibrant top or accessory. It's the summer of color—so dive in!
