Back to School Beauty Trends

Back to School Beauty Trends

Let’s face it – whether we’re talking first day of 3rd grade, high school or college, knowing the back to school beauty trends are a must. After all, it’s a whole new beginning and you want this to be the year you stand out from the crowd in a good way. We thought we’d share some of the hottest looks making a statement this fall.

Hair is Everything

Yes, it is. That doesn’t mean it has to be a big ordeal.

Pixie cut

If your hair is on the shorter side, go for it with a too-cute pixie cut. This sassy, throwback style is super hip right now and even better – super easy to maintain.

Bohemian buns x 2

Somehow these messy, low, double-buns literally scream too cool for school.

Braids: every which way

A fishtail braid, half up mohawk braid, braided bun, box braids – if it’s braided, it’s beautiful. With so many options, you could pull off a different braided look every day of the week.

Beachy waves

If you’re already blessed with those natural waves, bring them to school with you. Mid-length to longer hair is a solid look when there’s a beachy wave vibe happening.

Put Your Best Face Forward

Ok, so hair isn’t absolutely everything. These makeup trends are on-point this fall.

Smoky eye

You become the smoke show with this classic look. To get that perfect smoky eye, choose a shade of eye shadow that complements your eye color. Brown eyes pop with shades of navy blue and grey. Blues eyes look great with copper shades and green eyes are even hotter with shades of plum.

It’s ok to blush

Hey, who doesn’t love a little radiant glow to their cheeks? If you’re fair-skinned, contour your cheekbones with a pale shade of pink blush. For medium to dark skin, try out shades of peach all the way up to fuchsia and magenta.

Highlight your finer points

Brighten your look with an actual dusting of shimmery highlighter on the upper cheekbones and inner corners of your eyes.

Lash out a little

Are lush, full lashes ever a bad thing? Don’t have them naturally? That’s ok! A good, clump-free mascara is a girl’s best friend in the lash department. You can also use an eyelash curler to give your lashes an extra boost.

Make this school year and your look one to remember! If creating signature looks is more of a mission than a hobby, you might be perfect for a career in cosmetology!
