  • Its a heady tIme In new england, that last gasp of summer. These final weeks before Labor Day stir us into a swirl: On one hand, were now addicted to the feel of loosened ties and flowing (read: forgiving) dresses; weve embraced what it feels like not only to live more outside more often, but also to live more out loud. Bostonians as a whole only need a few months of warm-weather encouragement before weve become a more boisterous version of our regular selves. By the time August shows up and stretches out a hand, were ready to take it once around the dance floor. Of course, part of what makes this slice of time so singular is that we know itll end once September sobers us back up. So Im going to go on the record here and now and say this: We officially need to add an extra month between August and September. Thatll give us more time to relish the glory that is transition season. And more time to read this issuefilled with wardrobe ideas to take you from full-on summer straight into fall, plus eco-friendly resort getaways in places that are as stunning on a sweltering summer weekend as they are on a crisp fall one. Its all enough to leave us ready to kick back into high gear. Well, almost. First there are a few last berries to pick, and at least a few more breezy beach sunsets to savor. Enjoy!

    I dont lIke the whole phIloso-phy behind most makeup, admits David Nicholas. Its not exactly a sentiment youd expect to fly from the mouth of a man whos dedicated 40 years to cosmetic artistry. But those decades of buffing, brushing, and blend-ing have set the 55-year-old native Bostonian on an atypical mission. This idea that if were pretty, we dont need it is just wrong, he ex-plains. Makeup isnt there to cover you up; its there as an enhancement. Its empowering. Its an accessory. And its also an art form. The living canvases hes counted among the clientele of David Nicholas Internationalfrom local style icon Marilyn Riseman and Bruins players to Bill Clinton, Michael Dukakis, transgender folk, local models, and burn victims whom he volunteers his time helpingare proof of the depth and diversity that art form can take. We all have to put our best foot forward, he says. And that boils down to one thing: We arent just attracted to beauty; were attracted to balance in the face. To symmetry. For Nicholas, that often starts with brows and spans outward, to correct imperfections across the face that create the perception of imbal
