Homecoming Beauty #2


By Guest Blogger: Lydia Hayes

Homecoming week is here!!! : ) Need some hair and makeup inspiration for the parties coming up? Keep reading to see three makeup and hair looks you should definitely rock this homecoming week and the rest of fall.

Makeup

1. Smokey Eye and Nude Lip

This combination is a great go-to look for club nights. For Homecoming week that means parties like Pretty Nasty and Black Love. Start off with a smokey eye, what color smokey eye is up to you; if you want the classic smokey eye go with silvers and black or for a pop  of color try a bronze or golden smokey eye. Just make sure you blend your shadows and always use the darkest color in your crease and the outer part of your lid. And the stamp of a truly well done smokey eye is the smudged liner, so take a smudge brush or your finger tip and rub your liner to complete the smokey eye look.

A nude lip is a great compliment to the smokey eye because then the focus is truly on your eyes. Plus, nude lipstick polishes off the whole look.


2. Vampy Red Lip and Subtle Cat Eye

In the first look the focus was on the eyes but in this look the focus is on the lips! Vampire and wine colored hues are definitely the latest lipstick trend for fall. Here are four tips to help make sure you rock your lipstick:
1) Exfoliate - a lip scrub is a really easy way to make sure your lips are nice and soft
2) Use lip liner - it’s also a good idea to fill in your lips with the lip liner just in case your lipstick comes off there will still be something on your lips
3) Apply the lipstick - one to two coats as determined by you
4) Place a tissue over your lips and lightly dust translucent powder in order to set the lipstick and ensure minimal smudging

By subtly bringing out your liner into a small wing will give your completed look a bit more glamour.


3. Purple Eye Shadow

Purple eye shadow had a huge presence during Fashion Week. Now it’s time to take the trend from the runway to real life. Below, Jourdan Dunn demonstrates one way to wear purple eye shadow that can be also work for Homecoming.

Homecoming Beauty

Guest Blogger Lauren Hawkins Creator of www.AsToldByLeaux.com Fashion and Beauty Blog

Homecoming being just around the corner there are procedures to take to ensure that your look flawless during the turn up.

 The first event of the week is the kick off jam. Although Atlanta's weather has been a little gloomy, its only right to dress at your best.


The makeup for the week should as natural as possible. Below is a photo of upcoming model Emma J as I shadow her photo shoot. Her makeup are all mac cosmetics products to give her a nice everyday look.
Last but certainly not least! Cleansing your skin after a week of continuous makeup is a must. I have created my own sugar scrub that can be used on your face, feet, or your entire body. It's an amazing way to bring your natural oils back to your body as well as give your skin back the energy it needs. Visit YouTube.com/astoldbyleaux to see how I created my sugar scrub.

This first hair style is for my natural sistas! This quick and easy up-do is perfect for natural and transitioning hair. 
The second hairstyle would be great for Coronation Ball paired with a bright red lip!





A sleek bob would be ideal for any homecoming events that take place during the week. It is easy to maintain and can quickly transition from day to night.
