For the best beach hair on the boat, protect and revive sun-bleached tresses with this nourishing oil blend—also a must for prepping the color-treated strands you’re planning for fall.

This may be the last weekend for your RE/DONE cutoffs, and this vegan self-tanner will ensure you make the most of it. Keep up the regimen to prolong your vacation glow for months to come.

Channel your inner Bo Derek with shimmering beach shades of bronze and gold. Later in the season, pair the versatile shadows with a berry lip for an autumnal edge.

Sometimes all you need is the right sundress and a powerful mascara. Created to withstand anything from a long afternoon poolside to a sudden rain shower, this waterproof rendition from Serge Lutens fits the bill, delivering the volume, length, and curl required to end summer with the proper bang.

Keep it casual at your cookout with an alluring pout in a sheer shade of coral. MAC’s nutrient-rich gloss imparts a pearlescent shine, creating a natural lip color that seduces whatever the weather. (Pair it with a Solid & Striped bathing suit this weekend, and with a Breton striped top the next.)

If looking sun-kissed is your objective, this matte bronzer is your new best friend. Whether you want to look like you were on a European vacation all of August or to perpetuate the results of your real extended holiday, a quick swipe over the temples and tops of the cheeks should do the job.

SPF is always in season. You’ve made it this far without frying your skin, so protect it this weekend and beyond with Soleil Toujours’ mineral face sunscreen, which has the added benefits of anti-aging properties that smooth fine lines and improve overall hydration.
