You may not be able to go as dramatic as the look pictured above, but a cat-eye is perfect for the girl who likes a little edge. It goes perfectly with any outfit that you choose. The best part of the cat-eye is that all you need is eye liner and mascara. Once you get the hang of applying it you will have an easy go to look for every day of school.

Subtle Pink Lip



For a little color, just apply a Chapstick first, and rub a little pink lipstick on your finger. Rub in the lipstick for a sheer finish that’s subtle, but still very pretty. This is a great look for those in a rush. Swipe on a coat of mascara and you’re good to go!

Metallic Lids

Metallic lids are perfect for the girly girl. The cat-eye might be a little too bold for her, but she still likes to have a little extra glitz in her daily makeup look.  If you stick to copper and gold tones this look can be subtle and school appropriate. Add a thin line of eyeliner and a coat or two of mascara and you will achieve a fresh eye-catching look.

Minimalistic Makeup

Funnily enough, this season’s runway shows had a lot of less is more.  Minimalism is a huge trend for the fall. Just a hint of mascara and blush paired with a nude or pink lip is all you need. This is perfect for the no muss or fuss girl. She likes to look presentable every day, but does not feel the need to wear too much make up. There is a lot to appreciate about natural beauty and the minimalistic look embraces that!

Whether you are the type of girl who likes to go bold or stick to the bare minimum you can look runway ready when you step on school grounds this year.  Hopefully the looks above inspired you!
