Back to School Party Look

As the summer winds down and everyone heads back to school, don’t let your style cool down. Go for a bold shock of eye color to show off your personality at the next back-to-school party. YouCam Makeup lets you organize all of your favorite color palettes and save them to use later. Choose from two or three color palettes and hundreds of color combinations.

For this look, use light green at 100% intensity on the inner eye (1) and bright teal on the lid at 55% (2). Choose long lashes in brown for a softer look and eyeliner in brown.

A Study Date with the Girls

Makeup should be fun and highlight your own natural beauty, both day and night. For a daytime look, try out softer colors instead of black, especially if you have fair skin.

For this look, use subtle tones like gray to create a lovely daytime smoky look. Apply the darkest color shadow (the gray) close to the lash line (3).  Use bright green for the center (2) and light yellow green in the inner corner.

Eye shadows:  1) bright yellow green 100%, 2) Kelly green 100%, 3) Steel gray 75%
Lashes: light brown, long 100%
Eyeliner: Grayish teal, 70%

Long lashes are not a problem for the daytime, but its best to stick to a lighter color such as coffee brown to make them appear subtle and soft. Eyeliner in light but muted colors also works well, in this look using a grayish teal to line the eyes and complement the shadow colors.

Autumn Dinner Date with Your Crush

To look your best on your date, try a flirty style focused on strong eyeliner and thick lashes. YouCam Makeup has a broad selection of eyeliners and lash styles, allowing you to choose the style, color, and intensity.

For this look, start with eyeliner that enhances your natural eye color. For brown eyes, dark purple at 100% intensity makes the iris really pop. Choose a liner style that tapers slightly upward to give a more youthful and cheerful look. 

YouCam Makeup products used: 
Eye shadows:  1) bright pink 60%, 2) Salmon pink 100%, 3) Dark red 65%
Lashes:  Top and bottom, grey 100%
Eyeliner: Purple, 100% 

For the eye shadow selection, use smoky eye shadows and a dash of bright color. Use a darker reddish brown shadow in the crease of the eyelid (3), a salmon pink in the center (2), and a highlight of bright pink (1). To set off the look, choose thick upper and lower lashes in a gray color rather than traditional black to complete the look. This sexy yet playful look is also great for formal outings in general.
