We know you’ve been wearing sunscreen every day this summer (right?!). Even so, we’re guessing you’ve probably got a healthy glow going and perhaps a few new wrinkles, too. The last thing you want to do is hide your natural radiance. Enter RevitaLift Miracle Blur. The “magic” formula seems to make fine lines disappear on the spot. And, it doesn’t have pigment -- meaning it won’t change your skin color, so you can ride out your tan as long as possible.
2. Define your brows
Take a cue from celebrities like Liya Kebede and Blake Lively, who seem to have perfected the art of sculpted brows.
Practice your line drawing with a brow pencil to get a similar look.
3. Swap foundation
As the summer sun fades, alas, so will your tan, and soon you’ll start to notice your summer foundation doesn’t quite match your new “fall coat.”
After a full summer of sunshine, your hair is likely in need of some major repair. A leave-in treatment will help mend those pesky split ends while renewing the hydration lost from a long season at the beach.
5. Pick new polish
Purple is one of fall’s hottest hues. It’s already started popping up on the red carpet -- on lips, eyes, even hair!
PRO TIP: “You can use both together to help moisturize your skin in the fall,” says Gerstner. “One of my personal favorites is the Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator. It’s creamy and my go-to for fall!”
7. Darken your pout
Berry lips are going to be big -- no, huge -- this fall. Test out varying shades to find the berry lipstick that looks best with your skin tone. Shop the shelves, or try on a bunch of hues virtually (you’ll need to download the Makeup Genius app for virtual testing -- another fall must!).
8. Transition your hair color
Summer isn’t the only time of year to try a fun hue. Since you’ll need to update your hair color after a long summer, switch up your look by going for a bright platinum or a bold red this fall.

Although we're not exactly thrilled that the end of summer is here -- we'll miss you, long, sun-filled days with backyard barbecues and beach bonfires -- there's a teeny part of us that is secretly thinking, "Hooray for sweater weather!"
The truth is, we've been itching to fill our closets with the latest fall staples -- ankle boots, cozy coats, perhaps a new bowling bag -- especially now that stores are stocking up. And our autumn update isn't limited to just clothing. It's around this time that we start eyeing new beauty buys as well.
We can't wait to experiment with deeper lip hues. And our nail-art game? Well, it's begging for rich plums and navy blues. But before we can truly get excited about trying the latest beauty trends, there's a bit of maintenance to be done: things like switching foundation colors (because orange is not the new nude) and hydrating sun-damaged hair ... you get the idea.
So before the cooler weather sets in, check out our beauty to-do list.
