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!
Dab a light gardenia oil—like the intoxicating Kai Perfume Oil ($48; BeautyHabit.com)—behind your
ears and knees. Spend the day feeling like you're on a lanai.
Take a vacation—from your face. Skip the makeup,
swipe on a clear lip gloss, run a comb through your hair
and...done. No peeking in the mirror for the rest of
the day. Instead of thinking about how you look, reflect
on the myriad joys of summer.
Upgrade your baby pink nail polish to a version infused
with delicate shimmer, like Morgan Taylor Professional
Nail Lacquer in Sugar Fix ($8.50; MorganTaylorLacquer.com for salons). It's still sensible (imperceptible chips) but more playful.
Simplify your on-the-go makeup arsenal with a single
multitasking stick. Josie Maran Argan Color Sticks
($22;JosieMaranCosmetics.com) come in five creamy shades that can be used as lipstick, blush, even eyeshadow.
Smooth, defined brows help you look polished even on
makeup-free days. A tinted gel (like Anastasia Tinted
Brow Gel, $22; Anastasia.net) fills in gaps and tames unruly hairs. Brush the gel up and out from the inner corners of your brows to the ends.
Give your skin a subtle gleam with a shimmery
moisturizing oil, like L'Occitane Pivoine Flora
Illuminating Oil ($35; Loccitane.com).
Don't go overboard—apply a light layer only on
your collarbones, the tops of your shoulders and your
Swap that boring brown-berry lipstick at the bottom of
your purse for a coral gloss. Two creamy shades that
flatter every skin tone: Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
in Poutrageous! ($16; BenefitCosmetics.com) and Sonia Kashuk Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss in
Coveted Coral ($9; Target.com).
