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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
