Bangs may provide welcome style switch-up for Fall, but they're also an excellent outlet for experimenting with whole new makeup looks. Because this style draws attention to your eyes, fringe makes for a stunning pairing with bolder, more daring palettes. Fuel your bang benefits with three sweet looks when you keep reading.
- Smoky eyes are bangs' best friends, as demonstrated by Lea Michele at the Do Something Awards. Brow-skimming fringe plays up a dramatic eye shadow look, so grab a palette with some shimmery, metallic hues. Try Almay Intense i-Color Smoky-i Kit ($7). It does the work for you by pairing complementary shades and showing you where to apply them.
- For a more all-around makeup look, take a page from Bella Heathcote's book. Start with a subtle smoky eye that utilizes neutral colors. Skip the eyeliner, but use a lengthening mascara to frame your eyes. Then, choose a lip tint, such as Tarte LipSurgence in Spirited ($24), to add a pop of color. This way, your fringe will complement your soft eye makeup, but the bright pop of color on your lips will round out your overall look.
- If you're more liner happy, make like Nicole Richie and trace your eyes in a heavy black. The Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool ($22) includes a three-pronged tip to give you the control to create a variety of different liner looks. Finish off with neutral lipstick and blush for a modern-meets-retro vibe.
