backtoschoolseries2015There’s really no better time to change up your makeup look than at the beginning of the school year. Try out some of these new looks from the fall runways to raise your beauty game before classes start.

Dark Lips

A dark lip for fall makes an undeniably bold and chic statement. While black certainly isn’t for everyone, you can dip your toes into the trend by trying a dark brown, or even a dark plum. Pair the lipstick with very clean makeup. Simply add a coat of clear brow mascara, a light foundation, a brown mascara, and maybe a light eyeshadow for more drama. Pair this look with effortless hair in beachy waves or an undone bun.

Glossy Nude Eyes

A glossy nude eye is a subtle way to incorporate a new trend into your daily routine. Pick a shade of nude or brown cream eyeshadow, and swipe it across the whole lid. To add a little extra oomph, add a darker shade in the crease. Keep eyebrows simple and full with a swipe of tinted brow mascara to keep the focus on the eyes. Use a bronzer close to your skin tone to lightly contour cheekbones, and use a clear gloss on lips to finish the look.

Dark Waterlines

Channel your inner mod girl with black eyeliner on the waterline. Rim the waterline with a waterproof eyeliner on the top and bottom, or just the bottom. Smudge black eyeliner under on the bottom lash line for an added dramatic effect, along with a few coats of black mascara. Keep the rest of the face dewy and clean with highlighter and a clear lipgloss.

Classic Red Lips

A classic brick red lip is a great match for every skin tone and style. Apply a cream lipstick over the lips, and keep lines clean by using concealer or foundation around the edges. Apply a black mascara to just the top lashes, and a highlighter under the eyebrow and near the tear duct. A light blush on the apple of the cheeks finishes the look. Keep hair loose and care free to modernize, and keep it from looking like a vintage throwback.

Blue and Bold

Turn some heads with graphic blue eyeshadow.Pick out a bright cobalt or navy shadow and cover the whole lid, or just the crease for a pop of color. To make the look a little less bold, use blue on only the inner half of the eye, and use a neutral like brown or gray on the outer edge. The focus is all on the eyes with this look, so keep the face simple with a light foundation, a nude gloss, and a light mascara. Keep hair sleek to avoid the look from going eighties.

    It’s definitely not for everyone, but I loved that there were such diverse looks for this season, so everyone can find something that works for them.

    Honsetly, I am not a huge fan of the really dark lips!
