'Tis the season for city dwellers to jet off to exotic locales for a well-earned getaway, but as tans grow deeper and the number of passport stamps rises, your on-the-road beauty arsenal might be in need of some stripping down. After all, who has time for an all-out glam routine (and sifting through dozens of products) when you're on holiday? Make-up artists backstage at the spring/summer shows were in agreement, and the result is a low-effort, high-impact monochrome look that plays up two (or more) features at once using a single multipurpose product. Think creamy mauve blushes that double up as lip tints and shimmering shadows dabbed across cheekbones for a sun-kissed highlight, or pencils that doll up pouts, cheeks, lids, and even brows. Et voila—a single product can see you through island-hopping excursions and sunset cocktail affairs and back again. Today's high flying beauty has no time to waste.
