Do you ever dread putting on your “face” on the weekends? Facing makeup is not always what we care to do on an “off day”. Rather than going bare-faced, try simple sexy! Choose double, even triple duty items that made it simple to look fresh and vibrant, yet sexy, on a laid back Saturday.

Your how-to for simple sexy weekend makeup in 3 steps:
1. Tinted moisturizer — Jose Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer $38 joseimarancosmetics.com
This time saving must-have is a lightweight moisturizer, a sheer foundation and a powerful SPF all in one! Natural, organic ingredients pamper skin, while an SPF of 30 shields it from future damage by blocking both UVB and UVA rays. Best of all, it delivers the perfect level of coverage – creating a flawless complexion that looks and feels completely natural.
Tinted moisturizers are a triple-duty product — color and coverage, moisturizer and SPF. The beauty of applying a tinted moisturizer is that the product is very forgiving; matching the color is a cinch and lines of demarcation are absent!
2. Cheek & Lip Stain — NARS Multiple Cheek Tint $38 sephora.com
Bright, yet translucent tints, give cheeks and lips a sheer pop of color. This multi-purpose color can be worn alone for flushed cheeks or stained lips. For a bolder effect, it can be layered over other NARS face and lip products. Available in 3 vibrant colors, Beverly Hills (bright red), Turks & Caicos (bright orange) and Cadaqués (bright fuschia). Limited Edition.
Add color to lips and cheeks with a product that once again works overtime with the bonus of being a double-duty product. Top lips with a little lip balm or clear gloss. Don’t get tripped up by the price — these multiples will last your an eternity!
3. Finish with mascara and touch up brows if necessary. Slick hair back in a ponytail or adorn your tresses with a cute little head band. You will be quite simply sexy on a laid back Saturday or lazy Sunday.
