It’s time to show some skin! “A glowing, golden complexion is a must-have,” says Scott. “And not just for your face! Women are just as focused on having a glowing body.” Apply a gradual tanner or shimmering body lotion onto arms, legs, décolletage, back—wherever you want to show a little skin.
From the film My Week With Marilyn to Lanvin’s fall/winter fashion show, everyone is loving a dramatic ‘60s-inspired cat eye. “To achieve the look, create a wing with a liquid liner, then use individual or strip lashes and place them towards the outside of the eye,” explains Scott.
If there is one trend to try this season, make it a bold lip. “I love bright stains that make you look like you’ve been eating popsicles!” exclaims Scott. Look for sheer, cream textures if a thick lipstick is too intense for your usual style.
