With Labor Day weekend coming up fast, we caught up with makeup artist, Kirin Bhatty, for some quick tips for the perfect holiday weekend look. Kirin’s list of clients include the likes of Caroline Vreeland, Freida Pinto and Rosario Dawson (just to name a few!) so we knew we were in the right hands.

Glowy highlighted skin for a summer BBQ is ideal. I love the Living Luminizer by RMS. You apply with your fingertips to the high points of your face. You can even put it on your lids for a dewy lid look!

Bronzey skin – I love a sun kissed look year round, but especially at the end of summer, a bronzey post-vacay looking glow is key. NARS Liquid bronzer in Laguna is great to help create this. This product can be used alone or mixed into your foundation or moisturizer. Just a few drops and you’re good to go!

I love a bright pop of color on the lips especially in a fun summer hue. Since it’s BBQ season, picking a no-budge formula is key. You want something vibrant, but low maintenance. I love the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks. They really don’t move, and have a great selection of colors.

Brushed brows that stay all day – Glossier’s Boy Brow is everything. Comb this Product through your brows for a stay-all-day, feathered look that adds a hint of color and dimension.

Dewy, sun protected, skin. – in the summer especially I’m all about SPF, and in hot weather you just want to feel as light and airy as possible and let your skin breathe. This is why a tinted moisturizer with SPF is perfect for your summer BBQ prep. With a range of shades, SPF 30, and a dewy finish, I adore NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizers. The coverage is light and build-able, and if you need a touch more coverage follow with NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer.
