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!

Day One

Sweet Smell

Dab a light gardenia oil—like the intoxicating Kai Perfume Oil ($48;—behind your ears and knees. Spend the day feeling like you're on a lanai.

Day Six

Day Seven

Hot Lips

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; and Sonia Kashuk Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss in Coveted Coral ($9;
