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 homecoming 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're sharing 18 homecoming makeup looks to complete your homecoming beauty look.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #1: METALLIC EYE SHADOW
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.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #2: PURPLE EYESHADOW
Another eye shadow hue worth trying for homecoming? Purple eyeshadow! Not only is this color super on-trend at the moment, it’s the perfect way to brighten up your beauty look if you choose to wear a black or white dress.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #3: MAUVE LIPSTICK
If there’s one lipstick shade we know we’ll never get tired of, it’s mauve! This dusty rose hue goes with just about any look. You can dress up your makeup with a dark mauve hue or keep the focus on your eyes by sticking with a light mauve on your lips. Even if you aren’t positive you’ll sport one for homecoming, we highly recommend stocking up on a few mauve lipstick shades.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #4: GRAPHIC EYELINER
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.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #5: NOSE BLUSH
Prefer to focus on your face makeup for homecoming? There just so happens to be a new face makeup trend right now that’s perfect for the occasion. We’re talking about nose blush! There are a couple of different ways to try this makeup look, resulting in a natural, sun-kissed complexion since who doesn’t want to keep that look going come fall? Head over to our article, Should You Wear Blush on Your Nose?, for everything you need to know.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #6: GLOSSY LIPS
While we’ll always have a special place in our hearts for matte lipstick, we’re all about a lip product that’ll lead to the appearance of bigger, fuller lips. Instead of the typical matte lip, opt for a glossy, shiny alternative! Yes, glossy lips are back and here to stay. Pucker up!
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #7: VOLUMINOUS LASHES
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.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #8: BROWN SMOKY EYE
When it comes to special occasion makeup, it doesn’t get more classic than a smoky eye. To take a step back from a traditional black smoky eye, opt for a brown smoky eye instead. This will give you more freedom to experiment with a fun lip color without going overboard.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #9: ROCKER MAKEUP
Feel like getting edgy this homecoming? Turns out, rocker makeup is seriously in right now—and it’s the perfect way to channel your inner ‘80s gal (after all, throwback makeup is so in right now). Here’s our article, How to Get a Rocker Makeup Look, for a step-by-step tutorial.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #10: ALL MATTE EVERYTHING
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 on your lids. Finally, paint your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Don't. Add your finishing touches of mascara, eyeliner, and a matte highlighter—then you’re ready to make an entrance!
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #11: GOLD EYELINER
We keep going back and forth between mattes and metallics, but that’s just because both finishes are so big right now! If metallic makeup is more your speed, complete your eye makeup look with some gold eyeliner for a seriously eye-catching homecoming makeup look.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #12: DARK LIPSTICK
Want your pout to be the center of attention? Embrace the dark lipstick hues that are so in for fall just in time for homecoming. While you may be intimidated by rocking an ultra-dark shade, we promise there’s an option that’s flattering for everyone! Here’s How to Find the Best Dark Lipstick for Your Skin Tone to help.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #13: GORGEOUS AND GLOWING
Want to take 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!
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #14: BLUE EYES
No, we don’t mean your eye color. Blue eye makeup is another colorful eye makeup trend that’s made a name for itself as of late. Pair it with a neutral-colored dress for an added pop, or use a variety of blue tones to coordinate with a blue ensemble.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #15: DEFINED BROWS
Your eyebrows can make all the difference in your makeup look. While you may not consider them the focus of your homecoming makeup, they very well could be! Bold, thick brows are all the rage at the moment, which is why you should consider making them the center of your homecoming makeup.
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #16: LONG-LASTING LIPS
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!
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #17: CUT CREASE
A classic eye makeup look with a modern touch? The cut crease! This eye shadow look is the perfect way to highlight your eye shape without going too over-the-top—unless you want to, that is!
HOMECOMING MAKEUP LOOK #18: METALLIC LIPS
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.
