After you got your back to school notebooks and pens, don't forget to hit the cosmetic aisles for new lip pencils and fresh brushes. Because last year's beauty "supplies" are totally 2014. Not only is replacing your cosmetics regularly the most sanitary option, it lets you play around with the latest trends and find new products.
This year's beauty trends are focused on matte lips, strongly lined eyes, and impeccable eyebrows and lashes. Neutral looks are also still in with simple yet defined features. Play up your strongest features while keeping your eye and cheek colors neutral (or slight rosy) and your eyeliner strong and dark. Vampy lips are still on trend, but don't be afraid to go bold this fall with bright colors either. But please, feel free to skip the "strobing" trend and stop overlining your lips.
Before you hit the classroom, here are 9 beauty items to try out for the fall.
