There’s a reason this gel cheek color ($30, beauty.com) has been a must-have for years. Yes, it’s a dewy (in a good way). Yes, it lasts all day. It's even alcohol-free. But, most importantly, it gives that someone-just-pinched-my-cheeks natural glow we’re all after.
By now you know: Sitting in the sun for hours slathered in baby oil equals major beauty blunder. Yet who doesn’t still crave a sun-kissed glow in the summer months? So fake it. This powder ($50, sephora.com) works on all skin tones and allows the look of a tan without the damage.
Black, deep purple and dark green polishes are fab for fall, but in a season when air conditioning is a must, a lighter shade just seems cooler. This super pale cream ($14, beauty.com) is the perfect everyday lacquer.
When the temps are soaring—and the humidity is literally making your hair curl—the last thing you want to do is cake your face with a heavy foundation. Enter the "tinted moisturizer." This one ($12, drugstore.com) lays down translucent color that still manages to even things out. Plus, it's got sunscreen which is always a good thing.
