forecast: hazy

Consider this the new smoky. “A hazy eye is as captivating as a classic black, smudgy eye but with a more casual, wearable vibe,” says Christopher Ardoff, the makeup artist behind this look. To re-create it: Sweep a rose-gold eye shadow across the lid, then add a brighter plum or pink into the crease. (Ardoff used the pinks in Pat McGrath Labs Mothership III: Subversive Eye Palette, $125, patmcgrath.com.) Next, draw black or brown eyeliner on both upper and lower lash lines, and smudge. Then tap an eye gloss on top of the lid “for a subtle sheen and a cool blurred effect,” Ardoff says. Try Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Face in Crystal Clear ($32, sephora.com).

beauty just got personal

It takes almost two years, on average, for women to find the perfect moisturizer, says Michelle Henry, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and a Clinique global derm pro. “That’s a long time to be frustrated and a lot of money to waste,” she says. But those days are ending. New skin-care products hit all your needs with smart, targeted precision. Want a formula that hydrates dry cheeks, plumps fine lines, and treats the occasional pimple? Coming right up. At the same time, just as we wear trackers that count steps and REM cycles, we can use technology to analyze our skin, says Jeff Rosevear, the founding scientist of Skinsei. And custom products mean your odds of scoring real results just jumped a few levels. Hair-care formulas can be personalized…

glowy summer hair all fall

Even if you don’t color your hair, your strands are at their lightest right now, after a few months of outdoor runs, boot camps in the park, and weekends at the pool or beach. “Most of my clients love the way their hair looks at this time of year. The highlights brighten their face and add a lot of interesting dimension,” says Amy Mrkulic, a colorist in New York City. What often happens, however, is that the color begins to look too brassy over time. “We all have warm, reddish undertones in our natural hair color,” Mrkulic says. “They are like a den of hibernating bears. You don’t want to wake them up, because once you do, they’re hard to control.” Luckily, these key maintenance tricks ensure that your streaks—whether…
