Pretty, Quick: 3-step summer makeup

I have developed a feverish hate for wearing makeup in the summer. I make it the absolutely last thing I do before I leave the house, and a few times, I've even left my makeup bag at home.

On purpose.

But luckily I carry a handful of bright lipsticks in my purse, and my new obsession, the It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. On the bus, I'll make like Janine from BeautyGeeks and apply my brows (though with an obviously lesser- skilled hand) with the above pencil and follow with applying some bright lipstick to my lips. Like I mentioned a few weeks ago, my love for coral lips is still going strong. I'm pretty cozy with Revlon Coral and a new fluorescent orange from M.A.C that's coming out next month.

And of course, I always have my sunscreen on. My favourite during the sticky heat is Cliniderm Gentle Protective Lotion in SPF 45. It's really lightweight and watery, so you can blend it easily and it doesn't leave you shiny or creased eyelids.

So there you have it. Could you boil your routine down to two or three products?
