Lauren Conrad joined POPSUGAR and Malibu Island Spiced last night at LA's SkyBar to host a Summer bash. The designer mingled with guests at the poolside party — including one lucky POPSUGAR Must Have subscriber, who won the chance to fly to LA to attend the soiree and meet LC in person. We chatted with Lauren at the celebration, where she shared her advice on how to have a stylish Summer. Stay tuned for the video, and in the meantime, check out a few of her tips on enjoying the final days of the season in style:

Mix up your beauty routine: Lauren wore a bold combo of black and turquoise eyeliner to last night's party and gave us some tips on how she switches up her makeup when the months get hotter. She said: "A matte lip goes to a gloss lip. I switch a lot of my powders to creams . . . to get that more summery glow."
Seek out Fall-friendly pieces: LC said she's already looking ahead to cooler months and is looking for basics like neutral tops and shorts that can be worn with tights in the Fall. Lauren said: "It's all about transitional pieces, so if I'm buying something new, I want to wear it now, but I want to know that in a month or so, when it starts getting chilly, that I'm still going to be able to wear it."
Keep it simple: Summer is a great time to throw a party, but Lauren said not to overthink it or worry too much about the perfect decor. "You kind of just get to hang some strands of lights, and throw some pool toys into the pool, and it's kind of done," she said. "So, I think it's all about the good food and drinks."
