We love eye opening lashes and a good smokey eye, especially when paired with a peach sheen over the cheeks.

A pop of color on the inner corner of your eyes rather than the traditional white can glam up your look for the night. Add a bold, darker lip to compliment the eyes and make a statement.

Homecoming is a great time to incorporate color into your makeup. To change things up from your usual neutral makeup, go for bright colors supporting your home team.

For a more modern take on old Hollywood glamour, keep the eyes simple with a flick of liner and add a deep burgundy lip, topping off the look with finger waves.

A single swipe of bright liner can make for a fierce cat eye, especially when you're coordinating your makeup with your homecoming dress.

Apply black shadow to your eyelid below the crease and extend the line into a dramatic cat eye for a bold look that's bursting with confidence.

Metallic smokey eyes are our go to look for a big night out, and we love this look paired with a nude lip.
