Whoa. Feel that slight chill in the air? It's getting to be that time of year where you need a jacket in the morning, which means summer's OVER. And even if you've had three months off school to go and DO something with your life, maybe you didn't really do much of anything. Sure, you had a shot at finding your real friends, to evolve, to actualize, maybe learn an instrument or have a torrid affair with a beautiful, exotic young man in some hella far locale, but chances are you worked a crappy job the NEXT TOWN OVER because sweeping stale popcorn from crusty theater floors was a job that was already TAKEN at your local mall.
Who cares? That's the perfect setup for some good old-fashioned, lying your ass off with a last-minute reinvention. Let your beauty game reflect your idealized killer summer—from golden skin and beached-out hair to exotic eyes. They don’t know what you did last summer. (So make it up!)
THE LOOK: ETHEREAL SKIN

YOUR SUMMER STORY:
I felt nervous going to London for so long with ZERO cash, so thank goodness I linked up with Mario Testino's asst's brother, who is just the hottest, most wonderful man. And honestly—Mario is a genius, but those photos of the Hince/Moss wedding in Vogue don’t *even* do it justice. I didn't even ask to be included, but, well, Mario and Kate are just SO close. I mean—it was so organic, so heavenly, that I’m STILL glowing like an English rose. They're the best, you know.
WHAT YOU NEED
Liquid foundation, wedge sponge, powder brush, translucent powder, angled eyeliner brush, white iridescent eye shadow, white eyeliner pencil (with a blunted tip), crème highlighter
HOW TO DO IT
1. Apply foundation with fingers and blend well with wedge sponge.
2. Use powder brush to dust translucent powder lightly across face to set foundation.
3. Use angled eyeliner brush to apply eye shadow to the inner corner of your eye. Blend color so no harsh lines appear.
4. Use the eyeliner pencil to line the water line of your lower eyelid.
5. Apply highlighter to brow bone, skin above the Cupid’s bow on your lip and just above the cheekbones, blending as you go.
Tip: An ethereal look should nourish your skin. RMS Beauty Living Luminizer is packed with organic ingredients like virgin coconut oil—an antifungal, antibacterial, and antimicrobial that nourishes while it brightens.
