You Got This! September’s Theme Will Help Hype You Up for Fall


We can’t believe it either, but September is officially here. It’s fall, it’s PSL season, and it’s been nine long months since we looked inward as we set our 2022 resolutions. So we’re here to check in because sometimes, you just need a reminder. Our September 2022 theme is here to do just that.

As the CEO of your own world, we challenge you to embrace every challenge with confidence (from nailing your winged eyeliner and practicing your steady hand with some nail art to acing your next project) and watch yourself level up. We even spoke with therapist Stephanie Anyakwo, who is a pro at helping people discover their self-confidence and express their unique beauty. September is a season of a lot of changes, so just remember, you got this.

There’s nothing like the change of seasons to spark your creativity—and in September, inspiration is all around you (it’s Fashion Week, after all). Dip into an unexpected color palette, experiment with the hottest makeup looks co-signed by your favorite celebs, and discover new ways to express your show-stopping style. Fall’s trendiest nail art is the perfect place to start.

Head back to school in style—literally and figuratively (with our back-to-basics guide to applying highlighter), and set yourself up for success with your most organized home ever. Don’t forget to commemorate all these big events with lots of photos (we’ve got the pro tips for looking amazing in all your photos).
