The kids are finally back in school, it’s getting dark earlier and soon we’ll be falling back into our old autumn routines. Our favorite? Cozying up on the couch to watch some small-screen action with the family and getting some fresh beauty inspo at the same time. As our beloved comedies and dramas head back to their regularly scheduled times, we’ll be pulling out the iPhone to jot down a few notes from the players. Who to watch for memorable beauty looks? Read on.
7 Shows to Inspire New Beauty Looks
Between Bow’s funky style and Zoey’s youthful, trend-forward looks, Black-ish will have you recreating all things bright and whimsical. Cheer up the drearier days by drawing a bold lip or reaching for some equally eyecatching accessories. Headbands, anyone?
2. The Mick
Don’t put the beach waver away just yet, because you can count on The Mick’s leading ladies to bring the soft texture. Mickey stands for that California-girl sunshine and Sabrina channels the cool, crisp East Coast autumn.
3. New Girl
Jess and Cece are the bangin’ duo to emulate if you’ve got some fringe or are thinking of taking the plunge. The piece de resistance to both the blunt and side-swept looks on New Girl? A classic cat eye, of course.
For being such a badass, it’s no surprise Alex Parrish’s beauty look on Quantico is always on point. Check out this show for surprisingly feminine and soft makeup that offers the perfect balance to all that empowered edge.
We all know Liv is the gal to watch for fashion, but she’s also the prime time queen of polish in every possible way — including beauty. Always pulled together but never overdone, the gladiators and high-powered women on Scandal know how to play it neutral and turn heads at the same time.
For throwback inspiration that covers the ages, set your sights on Lucy. The Timeless star offers a little inspiration from every decade. You’ll never get bored mimicking her looks, as you’ll be busy channeling every infamous muse of the past.
If you’ve caught a couple episodes of Empire, you know the mama lion Lyon, better known as Cookie, is quite the chameleon. The label-loving powerhouse is old Hollywood glam one day (with prim curls and femme lipstick), and total rockstar the next (in vampy bangs and heavy smoky eyes).
Which show — and style — are you most excited to see return? Sound off in the comments!
