Just because we close our laptops at 5 p.m. doesn't mean that we're done for the day. In fact, when we leave the office, we're often running to the gym, to happy hour, to late dinners — we've got a social life, too, you know. But, that also means we're lugging a yoga mat, a zesty pair of heels, and all the contents of our vanity, in addition to our heavy laptops, from points A to Z. Short of letting everyone know where we've been (and where we're headed next), we’ve found a crazy-easy solution that’ll help streamline our suitcase bag: long-wear makeup that actually works.

To show you what we mean, we asked two industry pros to create fashion and beauty looks that are perfect for summer’s packed itinerary without changing a stitch of makeup. Ahead, makeup artist Jodie Boland shares three fresh looks that not only transition from your first Americano to your last nightcap, but that also last ― no touch-up required. The trick is using long-wear products that won't make a run for it when things heat up, like L'Oréal Paris' Infallible Pro Collection. To complement the makeup, stylist Katie Long created six inspiring outfits that will keep you cool — literally and figuratively — all season long. Think throw-on-and-go pieces in pastel hues, a statement suit in a bold shade, and a classic LBD with a whimsical twist.

We won't spoil the fun for you, but we can tell you this much: Count on leaving the makeup bag at home tomorrow — you're not going to need it.
