10 Essential Beauty Buys For The Dreaded Summer-To-Fall Transition

Not trying to state the obvious here, but around this time of year, the weather gets really weird, really quick — like, the moment you're not looking. One minute, a freak thunderstorm makes your hair go insta-puffball. The next, it's 90 degrees and you can actually feel your cheeks blistering in the sun. Oh, and then there's the oddly hot, muggy, in-between time, when you manage to feel sweaty and clammy all at once. It's enough to make you long for July, when it was just hellishly, reliably hot.
Enough with all that — we've got some game-changing beauty finds that will help you make the transition from summer to fall without skipping a beat. These are editor-approved, tried-and-tested solutions to the makeup mishaps, hair catastrophes, and skin snafus that plague us most — crazy-dry cuticles, lips that just won't stay soft, and a mane that's maybe a little too beach-y. Click through to see our new favorites and get the scoop on why we love 'em.
