    If you do still have a tan, like Sobieski, go with orange hues like she did at an event in New York earlier this month. Try Tarte’s new Amazonian Butter Lipstick ($16) in Coral Blossom and Nars Blush ($29) in Torrid.

What’s the best way to look fresh-faced when your summer glow fades? Do like Emma Stone and Christina Hendricks and match your blush to your favorite lip color. It’s a quick trick to make your skin look instantly bright and polished. In a pinch you can even dab your lipstick directly onto your cheeks and blend: a classic satin formula lipstick is nearly identical to cream blush! Eight celebrities to inspire you, above.
