As summer turns to fall and the school year begins, let’s be real: School supplies probably aren’t your first order of business. Instead, we bet you’re thinking about homecoming. While you may have your dress, shoes, and clutch picked out, have you given much thought as to how you’ll do your makeup? From choosing the right eye shadow to the perfect lip color, there’s so much to think about. To help you create a trendy, seasonal makeup look that’s just right for your big dance, below we share seven homecoming makeup ideas to complete your homecoming beauty look.
There’s no denying that metallic makeup shades are having a serious moment this year—in fact, you might even be incorporating some of these ultra-shimmery hues into your homecoming attire. The key to mastering metallic makeup is to keep it simple and monochromatic, as mixing too many metallic shades can be distracting. So, choose one eye shadow from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow collection and create an all over wash of color on your lid.
Another great way to make your eyes pop is by creating a striking eyeliner look. Instead of your usual flick of black along your upper lash line, opt for a double cat eye, a dotted under-eye, or even a layered wing. All you’ll need is the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner, which comes in a variety of shades. If you want your graphic eyeliner to really stand out from the crowd, keep your eye shadow on the minimal side.
You can never, ever go wrong with flirty-looking lashes. So, regardless of what eye makeup look you decide on for homecoming, top things off with a coat (or two) of mascara, such as the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.
Editor’s tip: If you’re a bottom lashes kind of girl, apply mascara there first, so as to help prevent smudging.
While metallic makeup is totally on trend these days, matte makeup is just as popular. To really slay at homecoming, rock a completely matte face. All you have to do is start by squeezing some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation onto a L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, blend it onto your face, and follow it up by applying matte shadows from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude onto your lids. Finally, paint your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-ly In Love. Add your finishing touches of mascara, eyeliner, and a matte highlighter—then you’re ready to make an entrance!
On the opposite spectrum of matte makeup is everything that takes the glow factor up a notch. If you love to shine bright like a diamond, start with a layer of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. Follow it up with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation. Then, conceal the look of any imperfections with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, before adding a hint of glow on your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops. Top things off with a touch of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Endless Pearl on your lids and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Moon Lust on your lips. Gorgeous, darling!
The best way to create a pretty pout that lasts is to use a liquid lipstick. If you want to keep your look on the subtle side, opt for a lip that’s champagne with a touch of rose gold. To get the look, reach for a tube of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Angora. If you’re more intrigued by a darker, autumn-inspired berry pout, you can’t go wrong with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Roseblood. Pair them with any neutral makeup look and let your lips do all the talking!
Last but not least, we love the look of metallic lipstick. If you choose to go this route, keep the rest of your look simple—you want your lips to be the statement piece. To get the look, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Smoldering Eclipse or Liquid Venom.
Whatever homecoming makeup look you choose to rock, you’re sure to look amazing! For more makeup ideas for your upcoming school events, read our article, 5 Gorgeous Prom Makeup Ideas for 2018.
