There are two reasons we love October so much. First is Halloween (hello!). And second, all our favorite shows come out of hibernation. Every time this –ber month rolls around, we get a fresh batch of plotlines and fab new looks to try—and for a bunch of TV geeks, that is very, very exciting.
What’ve you been watching, beautiful? For us, it’s been a mix of feel-good fallbacks and sexy thrillers. Check out our rundown of the best beauty looks on TV so far!
1. THE BFFS’ UNBEATABLE BANGS + BLUSH COMBO ON NEW GIRL
As far as best friends go, Jess and Cece are pretty much the cutest pair on television. These two lovelies are taking top prize in the bangs department (as usual!). Plus, the on-set makeup artists have bestowed their respective complexions with the most perfect, perfect shades of blush. Tomorrow’s beauty peg for the office: done.
2. OLIVIA’S BODACIOUS BEACH HAIR TRANSFORMATION ON SCANDAL
We’re so used to watching Olivia Pope fix things with a smooth, sleek blowout. So it was a breath of fresh air to see her natural curls in their full, bouncy glory upon the return of Scandal. (Of course, the straight hair returned sometime during the same episode—but that’s beside the point.)
3. MINDY’S DEMURE DARK LIPSTICK ON THE MINDY PROJECT
Oh, how we missed our weekly dose of Mindy Kaling. The funny girl paints her pucker in a delicious deep mauve—and we can’t stop looking at it. We love how subtly it pops against her deep, burnished skin tone. Morenas, take note: this plum hue won’t be too dramatic for every day!
4. EMILY’S MATCHY-MATCHY MAKEUP ON REVENGE
As if she wasn’t gorgeous enough to begin with, the feisty heroine of Revenge looks better than ever this season. We’re digging the way her red lips and cheeks match her semi-precious stone earrings that, of course, match her dress. Talk about streamlining your look!
5. ANNALISE’S SMOKY EYES + POWER JEWELRY ON HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
Finally, the show everyone’s been talking about! Our verdict on the beauty front: fabulous (and the plot is pretty darn compelling, too). From Annalise’s super creamy, sultry, smoky eye makeup to the statement necklaces she rocks in every scene, it’s a feast for the eyes! But, hey, we expect nothing less from Oscar winner Viola Davis.
