It's almost time to head back to school, which means now is your chance to update your makeup routine right along with your wardrobe. There are tons of new fall trends emerging, but only a few will help you look effortlessly chic and be completed in time for you to catch the bus:
OK, you don't want to go completely makeup-free, but keeping it simple will help you highlight that summer tan you worked so hard to achieve! On your first day of school, use a touch of concealer to cover any red spots and apply some shimmery white eyeshadow in the corners of your eyes to make them pop. Follow up with a touch of mascara and blush.
Lipstick is a great way to experiment with your look without fully committing to anything crazy. Bright pink and coral are two hues that are totally in right now. Put a new twist on these standbys by choosing formulas that will give you a matte finish.
For a flirty look, having voluminous eyelashes is key. While some mascara formulas claim to give you the volume you're looking for, nothing beats false eyelashes. After they've been applied, use a few swipes of mascara to blend the falsies in with your natural lashes. Use minimal makeup on the rest of your face to keep the focus on your eyes.
