Although perhaps a 60-minute makeup application would be an excuse to stay comfortably A/C-ensconced in this weather, when summer days are a perfect blend of sunshine, shade and breeze, the less time indoors the better.

So for the current issue of The Kit, I turned to Simone Otis, consulting makeup artist for Joe Fresh Beauty, to do a story on quick, fresh looks to get us through every summer occasion. Video commentary includes key tips that deliver big impact in a snap, and the text offers a range of get-the-look product suggestions.

For our five-minute brunch-with-the-girls look, 10-minute professional polish, and 15-minute fancy for all the weddings, parties and sunset soirées you'll attend, pop over to No Fuss Summer Makeup.

I'm particularly taken by Simone's 15-minute application, a beyond-easy one-shade smoky eye, which makes dolling up for special summer occasions a total breeze.

How long does it take you to fancy up for a summer shindig? Do you have five-, 10-, and 15-minute routines?
