31 Inspired Ideas to Revamp Your Beauty Routine This Month
Long, low-key afternoons. Lazy weekends. Now is the perfect time to break out of your routine. We've got 31 new ways to jazz up this season—and your looks!
A creamy, opaque concealer can melt in the heat. Use
YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch highlighter ($40; YSLBeautyUS.com)
on the inner corners of your eyes instead. The sheer,
illuminating formula hides puffiness and brightens dark
shadows without settling into fine lines and wrinkles.
Turn your ponytail into a statement in four steps:
1. Spritz thickening spray from roots to ends.
2. Make a side part.
3. Use a fine-tooth comb to tease the underside of a three-inch section of hair just behind the top of your head.
4. Gently smooth over that area as you
brush your hair back into a ponytail.
For a natural blush that lasts all day, dab a bit of a long-lasting liquid stain (like Topshop Make Up Lip & Cheek Tint, $14; Topshop.com) on the apples of your cheeks and blend it upward toward your temples, using circular motions.
The Color Lavender
Have you been wearing the same tomato red on your toes for the past ten summers? Reinvent your pedicure with a
lively lavender polish. Our favorites: Givenchy Le
Vernis in Croisiére Purple ($20; Sephora.com), OPI Nail Lacquer in
You're Such a BudaPest ($9; Ulta.com), Essie Nail Polish in
Full Steam Ahead ($8; Beauty.com) and
Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Do the Mermaid ($19; DeborahLippMann.co
Ready for Takeoff
Adding subtle wings to your black eyeliner makes your
eyes look more awake. Use a flat-tipped liquid pen (like
e.l.f. Triple Tip Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, $2; EyesLipsFace.com)
to make a thin, quarter-inch-long flick from the outer
corner of your eye toward the outer corner of your brow.
A touch of green flatters every eye color. If
you're pale, blend a sheer minty shadow (like Make
Satin Finish Eyeshadow in Sea Glass, $18; WeSeeBeauty.com)
over your lids. If you have olive or dark skin, dust the
tips of your lashes with a deep teal mascara (like By Terry Mascara Terrybly
in Dark Forest, $47; Beauty.com).
