  • Vibrant Hair Color

    Kate WalshKate Walsh. Photo by Jordan Strauss/WireImageGET THE LOOK: Post-summer hair maintenance isn't always a day at the beach. "To help remove damaging chlorine that tarnishes hair color, use a baking soda mask, which opens the hair cuticle and flushes out chlorine," says hair guru Naomi Knights of the Cristophe Salon in N.Y.C. Wash hair, then smooth a paste of baking soda and water over wet strands. Leave in for 10 minutes, rinse and apply conditioner.
    INSIDER TRICK: Save your strands next vacation! "Prevent chlorine damage by coating hair with a silicone- or oil-based spray," adds Knights. It not only hydrates you hair, but it will also create a seal to prevent chlorine absorption.

  • Berry-stained Lips

    . Photo by Jon Furniss/WireImageGET THE LOOK: If you've always avoided red lipstick because it feels too severe, try a "natural-looking wash of color that won't rub off on your teeth," says celebrity makeup pro Kara Yoshimoto Bua. Thandie Newton went for a hint of berry tint, giving a youthful I-just-ate-a-popsicle flush to her pout. It looks "puckery and stays on pretty well," adds Yoshimoto Bua.
    INSIDER TRICK: To make the look stay-put, apply balm once the stainsets in to bare lips.

  • Flattering Brows

    Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway. Photo by Jeff Vespa/WireImageGET THE LOOK: One-size-fits-all may work when it comes to handbags or mascara, but not for eyebrows. If you have large, expressive eyes like Anne Hathaway, "brows should not be too thick or you might seem intimidating," says celebrity brow expert Anastasia Soare. "But a skimpy brow on a big eye is very unflattering and makes eyes look too large for the face," adds N.Y.C. brow guru Ramy Gafni.
    INSIDER TRICK: Don't be afraid to fake it! "Extend the line of your brows past the outside corner of your eyes to fully frame your eyes," says Gafni, who adds that you should keep thickness moderate to heavy.

  • Even-toned Skin

Luminous, even-toned skin makes you look years younger. To undo the damage the sun causes your complexion, look for a night cream with potent levels of albatin, which inhibits melanin production.
    INSIDER TRICK: To keep skin looking radiant, wear a sheer foundation containing SPF and glow-enhancers during the day, like Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer.

  • Lustrous Curls

    Sheryl CrowSheryl Crow. Photo by Bruce Gifford/FilmMagicGET THE LOOK: Got curls? Then you've probably got dull frizzy, too. Fret not! Sheryl Crow's glistening Goldilocks are just a balm away. Curly hair inherently looks less shiny than straight because the curve of each hair makes the cuticle stand up.
    INSIDER TRICK: Comb a dimethicone-based anti-frizz balm through damp strands, and let hair air-dry without touching it. The silicone-derived ingredient adds shine while clinging the cuticle back to the hair shaft, allowing light to bounce evenly off the surface.
