Check out a few end-of-summer styles and grooming goodies to help you make the most of these days — there's something here for everybody! A double-your-pleasure brow pencil What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! It's great to have a well-groomed brow any time of the year. But this brow pencil and highlighting duo ($21) packs twice the punch. Use the highlighter on your brow bone to make your eyes stand out now, and use the pencil to fill in any patchy spots. A fresh flush What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! When it's hotter than Hades and you don't want to fuss with a full face of makeup, go with a sweep of sheer pink blush. Dandelion ($28) is light and soft, and it instantly brightens in the best ways. Glow on What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Fake a sun-kissed glow with a creamy bronzer. Fresh High Noon Fresh Face Glow ($36) blends well and gives more glow than color, so it looks good on all skin tones. It's fragrance-free and it looks great with a pop of blush on top. A bright-eyed shadow What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Duo is a two-in-one product, and so is its sibling, Mineralize Eye Shadow ($17.50). Each compact has two colors, but the one to look out for is Love Connection (pictured). It's a soft, shimmery duo of champagne pink and warm gold, and it's great for when you want to add just a little bit of glow. A headband for the birds What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! This feathered headband ($16) is a little bit folky (couldn't you see Joanna Newsom wearing it?) but not overly hippie-ish. And at $16, it's much more affordable than the designer versions popping up on Hollywood stars. A clean day What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! What's hand soap doing in here, you ask? Well, I like to have little luxuries in everyday life, and Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day hand soap ($4.99) definitely fits the bill. The Geranium scent is so fresh and pleasant that I find myself rushing to the kitchen sink to clean my paws more often than usual.
