Hold on to summer while it lasts

Summer doesn't have to be over!Unfortunately, summer is just one of the four seasons, which means it's rapidly coming to an end and making way for harsher weather. However, you don't have to let go of your summer styles yet. In fact, you should be milking them for all they're worth and perhaps even introducing a couple of new hues into your makeup collection. Glamour magazine pointed out a citrus-inspired look spotted on the runways that would be just perfect.

To look fresh and summery, skip out on the heavy makeup. While it is getting colder and you're likely not going to have to worry about sweat-proofing your face, you should still capture the bare essentials look by going minimal. Use a light foundation and powder to keep your skin matte, then forgo eye makeup altogether, except for a bit of mascara.

Choose a bold, light pink color for your lips, like Joey New York – Collagen Boosting Lipsticks in Deep Heat – Deep Raspberry. You can add gloss on top if you want to shine things up, but otherwise a coat or two is all you need. Then, paint your nails a citrus orange like Pixi – Nail Polish in Red-Orange. It's the perfect salute to the summer season.
