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!
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.

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).
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)
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.
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.
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.
