11 Back to School Makeup Looks

  • Keeping it light is always a favorite way to do school or work-safe makeup. It’s flattering, effortless, and you’ll never look overdone.
  • Brighten up tired eyes with pops of shimmery peach on lids. School can be exhausting–from extracurriculars to studying to hanging out with friends–so camouflage any tired peepers by using light, shimmery shades all over the lid!
  • Darken the crease for a bolder look that’s still not overdone or too smoky. It can give your eye more definition!
  • Soft and subtle is easy to do once you have a set of go-to neutrals.
  • Try softer crease shades for your natural looks–you’ll still get the definition and depth you want, but it will be more sophisticated.
  • Try subtly darker neutrals for a more intense version of the natural eye. You’re still not going full-frontal with color, but you’re punching up the color a little bit.
  • Add color on the lid in shades that are noticeable but not neon, and you’ll be able to dabble in color without feeling like you’re wearing too much.
  • Smoky eyes are totally school-worthy if the mood hits! Try something like a champagne on the lid and really smoke out the crease and lash line.
  • Greens, grays, and blues are all perfect for fall! If you’re not afraid of color, rock them!
  • Go bold or go home! I know we have to have some readers who are going to wear the brightest shadow no matter where they’re going, so this is one of my favorite looks for something ultra bright!
  • Cute and fun and just right. It’s colorful, but it’s not neon – this always reminds me of ice cream, but it’s also very youthful.
