Experimenting with eye makeup colors doesn’t mean going straight up neon blue. For those that are total slaves to their nude shadow palettes, maroon is an easy and subtle way to step outside the box. Pair it with a glossy rose lip just like Julianne Moore.

We’ve seen enough pale pink jackets this winter to know that pastels aren’t put away once winter hits. The same goes for beauty. Brush a light lavender shadow over your lids, blending to the crease, to re-create this Natalie Dormer look.

Metallic silver eyeliner definitely takes the standard cat-eye to the next level. Use a brush and a liquid formula to get a precise line similar to Lupita Nyong’o. It’s a statement, so keep the lips and cheeks relatively glitter-free.
