Alicia Keys decided to take her new single’s advice and make every day ‘A New Day’ by cutting of her hair. She took to Twitter, via Instagram, and declared, “Look what I done did!!;-))) its an #aknewday in EVERY way!!!! ;-))))” and showed off her new ‘do. 

In classic Alicia Keys fashion her new hairstyle is completely versatile. As she showed in the pic above, she can rock it wavy, slicked back or styled as classic, sleek bob.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you the beauty trends you need to know about and incorporate into your routine, stat—and the products that will give you the looks in a flash.

Up this week: glowy skin! We love this trend when the weather gets warm, especially since skin tends to get a sheen all by itself thanks to high humidity! But there are a few products in particular that really help to make skin look as glowy and gorgeous as it did on the runways. Check out our favorites.

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose
Seven absolutely gorgeous shades that shimmer and sparkle, not to mention they’re as perfect on eyes as they are on cheeks. Divine.
$60 at

Benefit Sun Beam
A glimmering nude highlighter that adds the prettiest glow to cheekbones.
$26 at

Victoria’s Secret Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder
We love the marble-like finish and the packed-in shimmer that, once swept on the skin, is sexy and girly all at the same time.
$16 at

Topshop Blush in Prime Time
The cream to powder formula just seems to melt into the skin. And the pink hue makes the apples of the cheeks look so pretty and dewy.
$12 at

This week, we’re bringing you bold lips. We’re loving this trend because it’s not really normal for summertime! But bright, bold puckers were seen all over the runways this season, casting aside the notion that deep reds and pinks are just for fall and winter. All shades of red and pink are definitely in the mix, but coral and orange have worked their way in, too. Check out our favorite takes on the various colors.

Is there anything more summery than a beautiful, peachy coral lip? Not quite red, not quite pink, not quite orange … this one perfectly offsets bronzed or pale skin and makes our mouths water.

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Calypso
Packed with gold shimmer for a gorgeously glossy glow.
$29.50 at

Fresh Sugar Coral Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15
Slicks on easily, leaves behind a pretty coral stain and lasts for hours. Not to mention it protects your lips from harmful UV rays!
$22.50 at

Korres Mango Butter Lipstick SPF 10 in Coral
Bold and bright, and the mango butter makes your lips feel amazing.
$18 at

Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Color in Coral Crush
This lipstick has a pinkish tinge that really sets it apart from the rest of the coral crowd. It dries semi matte, so it’s perfect for a night out on the town.
$7.49 at

Looking for a vibrant color that really makes a statement? Head for traffic-stopping orange.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Zinfandel
We love the way this feels on our lips, and the precision you get with a pencil form makes it worth salivating over!
$24 at

Topshop Lips in Infrared
Although this lipstick is super bright orange, there’s somehow a softness to it that makes it less harsh in everyday light.
$16 at

NYX Indie Flick Matte Lipstick
The boldest of the bunch—a fiery orange that makes us want to go salsa dancing.
$5.99 at

Red definitely shocks us as a summer lip color go-to, but we’re loving the bold change.

M.A.C Ruffian Red Lipstick
This cult favorite was recently brought back into rotation, much to the fans’ (including ours!) glee. It just doesn’t get more classic than this blue-red shade.
$14.50 at

Yes to Carrots Color Balm in Soft Plum
If you’re looking for just a hint of color, in addition to supersoft lips, this balm is the one for you.
$5.99 at

Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Flamenco
The deep berry hue is gorgeous, but it’s the fun marker-like application that really got us. But be forewarned, this stains lips instantly—and takes a LOT of makeup remover.
$19 at

Does it get more girly and feminine than pink? We think not.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Lucky
The blue tone makes this lipstick look brightly, shockingly hot pink. And it’s DIOR. Need we say more?
$30 at

NARS True Matte Lipstick in Carthage
This lipstick is definitely a matte. We’re obsessed with its stain-like quality and eye-popping hot pink hue.
$25 at

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Blendable Lip Duo in Perky
Two for the price of one? Sign us up, especially with this duo, since the colors look equally gorgeous on their own or layered atop one another. We’re totally loving the frosty pale pink.
$7.99 at

Like it or not there is no shortage of celebrity involvement in the cosmetics world these days. Fergie signed on with wet n wild to be one of their Beauty Ambassadors, making her the face of the cosmetics line for new marketing campaigns. And the first of her endeavors with them, a collection of nail polishes, is starting to pop up in stores. We hear that Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night (a clear polish with tiny flecks of black and larger gold hex glitter) is a killer glitter nail topper.

Lady Gaga created her own beauty buzz this week, as she broke the news to her tweeple that her new fragrance wouldn’t break their piggy banks. Lady Gaga Fame, the star’s first fragrance, will be available in September this year and will come in two different packagings. The more pared down of the two will be $30, while a heavier (and likely gaudier) bottle will be available for about $70. The back of the packaging for the fragrance says it’s scented with notes of “tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.”

Which celebrity beauty announcement are you most excited about?
While a lot of celebs are still going the nude nail route, some are stepping up their game with bright red nails. They’re bringing out their inner vixen and vamp, and we have to say we’re totally on board! Red nails jazz up anything, from jeans and tees to dramatic gowns. Check out what some of the celebs have been doing with their red nails lately. (And we’re especially loving this, since today is July 4!)

Rose-Byrne-Red-Nails.jpgRose Byrne teamed her white Valentino dress with bold red nails for the premiere of Damages.

Dita-Von-Teese-Red-Nails.jpgBurlesque queen Dita von Teese paired her signature red lip with equally red nails, which looked super glamorous with her black fit-and-flare dress in Paris.

Jessie-J-Red-Nails.jpgSinger Jessie J is no stranger to bold fashion and beauty looks, and teaming bright red nails with her pajama-inspired black and white ensemble is just so fun and kitschy.

Blake-Lively-Red-Nails.jpgFor the premiere of her new movie, Savages, Blake Lively brought the drama with red nails and a sexy Zuhair Murad couture gown.
