Summer always has our skin looking gorgeous, sun-kissed, and glowing. But getting back into our fall routines means less time spent in the sunshine and more time spent stressing over work and school. So, we turned to Dia’s Beauty Adviser, Victoria Donelda, for her tips on keeping that summer glow well into the new season—because you deserve to shine all year long!
With summer coming to a close, you might be thinking of ways to hold on to the sunny season a little longer. Here are my top three beauty tips and tricks to keep your summer glow shining a little longer!
Tip #1: Make Your Tan Last
If you’ve been out in the sun this summer and acquired a new tan, you may want to keep that bronze glow around a little longer. I find that the best way to make my tan last is to really take care of my skin. This includes daily moisturizing, using a body scrub once or twice a week in the shower, and using a little body highlighter for that extra-beachy glow.
My favorite body highlighter is Goldie Rocks Glow Oil from Sol de Janeiro. I put it on my shoulders, collarbone, legs, and arms for that fresh-off-the-beach glow!
Tip #2: Popsicle Pout
In the summertime, I love a sheer lip. It reminds me of being a kid and having a popsicle on the porch after dinner. That sweet little fruit lip stain from a popsicle is what I like to recreate for myself now. It makes me feel youthful, effortless, and fun.

Tip #3: Faux Freckles
They say you always want what you don’t have, and they are so right when it comes to freckles! While I did not inherit my mom’s beautiful all-over freckles, I have learned how to make some very believable ones through my years as a makeup artist. It’s actually really easy!
If you try out any of these tips during the dog days of summer, tweet or tag me in your pictures @victoriadonelda! In the meantime, if I have to say goodbye to summer, there’s no reason I can’t think about hot chai tea lattes and spooky Halloween looks! Let me know what you’re excited about for autumn and don’t forget to keep your skin hydrated, exfoliated, and please, still wear your sunscreen!
