Whenever a big season change comes around, we know it’s time for us to overhaul our daily regimens. Which is why we asked some of beauty’s best to share their tips on how we should shake things up with our regularly scheduled beauty lineup. From how to protect your skin to the trick for scoring the longest lashes ever, here’s the insider advice that you won’t want to miss:
1. Try Going Natural
This fall at New York Fashion Week, we asked Juice Beauty founder Karen Behnke to tell us her big predictions for the coming year: “Gentle fruit-based, gluten-free beauty products are going to be a huge trend in 2014.” Heed this savvy founder’s advice and test drive all-natural alternatives like Juice Beauty’s recently launched collection of organic cosmetics. The line uses ingredients like organic açai, goji berries, blueberries, pomegranate, and cranberries to create gorgeous, vivid colors. Our current fave is the Glowing Cheek Color, which eschews parabens, petroleum, and pesticides and has a lovely dewy finish.
With fall premieres upon us and our heritage theme in full swing, we’re looking back fondly at some of our favorite 90s TV style icons.
From the hair trick we learned from Angela Chase on My So-Called Life to the style tips we picked up from Steve Urkel (seriously!), here’s some excellent insight from one of our favorite decades.
We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration and e-commerce site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their expert advice for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.

Most brides who have their wedding makeup professionally done opt to do a test run before the big day. This is a great idea; it ensures that you and your makeup artist are on the same page beforehand, so you don’t end up looking like an ’80s beauty queen for, say, your boho wedding. Here are our tips for getting the most out of your test-run session.
