We spend a lot of time telling you which sales to shop and what to wear on the weekends, but it’s high time we deliver a party-perfect beauty look. This one, seen on Ali Larter at the CH Carolina Herrera party, is flirty, lovely and (best of all), super easy — perfect for a summer night out when the last thing you want to do is fuss for hours with your makeup.

Avon makeup artist Lauren Andersen shares how she got Larter looking so radiant in a snap. First she gave her skin a glow with YSL Touche Éclat foundation, then luminized and warmed up cheeks with a layer of Armani Fluid Silk #3 and Lorac Baked blush in Exposed.

Then she kept Larter’s eyes simple, adding only Avon Mega Effects mascara (you’ve got to see this wand if you haven’t yet!) for length and letting the focus remain on the actress’s bold pink lips (a color she got courtesy of Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in “Berry Smooch.”)

There, how easy was that? You could probably swing a similar look with products already in your makeup case. Tell us: What’s your favorite makeup look on a hot summer night?

I’ve tried some of the products on this list, but I’ve got to say that I my favorite products are still by Measurable Difference. Their mascara is amazing,and is really healthy for my lashes!
