CHICAGO

Jennifer Worman, @redsolesandredwine

"In Chicago, there isn't a uniform style—it's all about individual confidence. Skin shines through light foundation, hair is loose and natural, and women go with a nude or bold lip depending on their personal style. Plus, daily serums and eye creams are a must."

TRY: Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup, $38.50; Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Raspberry, $25; Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster, $65.

DALLAS

Krystal Schlegel, @krystalschlegel

"Whether it's for the gym, the grocery store, or a black tie gala, Texas girls get dressed up, which means big, blown out hair, and pretty makeup. My musts: dry shampoo to make my blowout last, BB cream with SPF, and face lotion to hydrate skin that gets dried out from the Texas heat."

TRY: Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo Light Tones, $26; Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar, $24; Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging Lotion SPF 30, $129.

MIAMI

Afroza Khan, @chicstylista

"Miami is all about laid-back comfort. The hot and humid weather means wavy hair that can easily go up in a messy bun or a fishtail braid later in the day. Sun-kissed makeup and dewy skin (face oil is a big Miami beauty trend!) with sheer nude lips is always a favorite look in this city."

ATLANTA

Megan Elliot, @lushtoblush

"In Atlanta, people aren't afraid to stand out and stay true to their own style. There's no better way to elevate a beauty look than a fun, bold lip color. It not only brings a splash of color, it also adds the perfect complement to that eclectic Atlanta style. Being in the Southern heat, we have to use SPF to protect our skin from the strong sun and moisturizer—or a serum—is a must."

TRY: Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield, $68; Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Bold Liquid Lipstick in Raspberry, $22; PREVAGE Anti-Aging Daily Serum, $162.

NEW YORK CITY

Christine Bibbo Herr, @NYCPretty

"With an always-on-the-go lifestyle, New York City girls want to look chic and pulled together without too much fuss. Think: a simple braid that can go from a workout to work, makeup with SPF built-in, and a rosy blush for simply flushed cheeks."

TRY: Redken Braid Aid, $18.75; Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging Foundation Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30, $65; Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Radiance Blush in Blushing Pink, $26.50

SEATTLE

Most Popular

Brittany Streissguth, @pumpsandplaid

"Seattle grunge used to be about the 'zero effort' perception. For natural-looking, glowy skin, using a tinted moisturizer or BB Cream is a must. And applying a sleep mask a couple times a week lets you wake up looking refreshed. A subtle nail color adds the final detail to any look."

TRY: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Overnight Firming Mask, $88;Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin Foundation, $38.50; Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Shifting Sands, $18.

LOS ANGELES

Lindsay Luv, @lindsayluv

"With the perpetual sunshine so unique to Cali, the first concern is sun protection. Bright sunny days lend themselves to a more natural and bohemian beauty look, while the glamour of Hollywood and my work as a DJ means nights are all about looking glam. For day, I prep with a rich moisturizing cream with SPF to protect against sun damage and pollution and then I sweep on a matte bronzer and blush. At night I add a golden highlighter and smoke out my eye makeup with extra shadow and eyeliner. Bedtime means a clarifying clay face wash to combat the the LA smog followed by a Vitamin C face serum to refresh my skin and lessen any sun damage from the day."

TRY: Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield, $68; Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo, $35; Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil in Smoky Black, $19
