Day 20

Gold Finger

Update the French manicure with an elegant—but slightly more edgy—camel and rose-gold combination. Paint caramel over the whole nail; then, with a superthin eyeliner brush, trace a golden shimmer over the tips. (Pierre Hardy for Nars Nail Polish Pair in Easy Walking, $29; NarsCosmetics.com)

Day 21

Liner Notes

In bright summer sunlight, brown eyeliner is more flattering and looks more natural than stark black. Reach for a coppery or gold-flecked brown (like Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in CopperGlow, $15; PixiBeauty.com).

Day 22

Lighter Load

Take the weight of the world—or at least the weight of your handbag—off your shoulders: Switch to a snappy straw clutch. Do you really need more than your wallet and a lipstick when running errands on a summer afternoon? (Danielle Nicole, $48; LordandTaylor.com)

Day 23

Shower Power

Make your morning routine deliciously indulgent. Caudalie Divine Scrub ($38; Caudalie.com) mixes brown sugar with grapeseed, argan, hibiscus and sesame oils. As you smooth it on, it turns into a creamy milk that leaves skin silky and scented with grapefruit, rose and a hint of musk.

Day 24

Body Builder

When blow-drying isn't an option, work a large dollop of volumizing mousse on damp hair from roots to ends and let it air-dry. The alcohol-free formula of Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Volumizing Mousse ($28; PhilipB.com) moisturizes, adds shine and controls frizz.

Day 25

Rosy Outlook

For a natural, lit-from-within blush effect, apply a creamy formula (like Koh Gen Do Cream Tint, $39; KohGenDoCosmetics.com) under a sheer tinted moisturizer.
