For me, the first day of summer has always had a little bit of regret attached to it. The season launches with the solstice—June 20, 21, or 22 in the Northern Hemisphere—the longest day of the year. It’s truly worth celebrating the late sunsets and extended twilight. But the next day reality sets in: Every subsequent day shaves off a little bit of light. (Sorry to be a bummer just when you’re finally able to go to the beach.) But I recently learned something that made me feel better: These dates reflect only the astronomical definition of the seasons. Meteorologists divide the year into different three-month periods.

HOW DOES IT WORK? “Highlighter reflects light, so it adds shine and volume wherever you place it,” says celebrity makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor. He recommends using a neutral shade (one matching your foundation or bronzer) if you want to accent the high points of your face—specifically, the cheekbones, brow bones, inner-eye corners, and Cupid’s bow. Rose, peach, or berry highlighters that resemble blush look best on cheeks. HOW DO I WEAR IT? You can apply highlighter after your blush or bronzer as a finishing touch or in lieu of either one to make foundation look fresher, Sotomayor says.
