I’m so excited that for this season, the focus is all on the eyes! For once, we give the lips and cheeks a chance to sit in the audience and watch the eyes come to life with metallics, bold liners and loads of lashes and mascara.

While I’ll admit, playing up your eyes can be intimidating for women just beginning to dive into makeup, there are ways to make a simple trend standout. I get that not every woman understands how to apply shadow, yet alone knows for sure which colors will look best on her complexion. So here, I’ve started with an easy alternative to drawing attention to the eyes: liners. Blue liners to be exact.

For women with darker complexions, blue, in my opinion, will always be a great color to begin with. Here, I’ve shared a few of my top picks for playing around with the trend, using a deep blue (perfect for the office), teal (perfect for date night) and turquoise (perfect for a night out with the girls).

But, don’t let me be the only one showing off the season’s trends. Tweet and Instagram me your favorite beauty looks for fall, using the hashtag #BeautifullyBrown so I can draw some inspration from you lovely ladies!
