I love experimenting with beauty. Every year during Fashion Week, I look forward to seeing what the new trends are so I can try them out for myself. This season on the runway, it was all about the BOLD and the BARE. Here are some of my favorites:

Jason Wu: Colored Liner + A Bold Red Lip

Yes, this goes against everything we’ve been told. It used to be that you never paired a bold eye with a lip...but in this case, it works. Since the lid itself is bare, the colored liner blends nicely with the pop of red on the lip.

When it comes to liner, it really depends on your eye color. The bright blue, seen on the runway at Jason Wu, is perfect for anyone with blue eyes. For brown eyes, go a little bit darker with a navy. Green eyes look great with a rich plum. I tend to prefer using liquid liner rather than powder because it’s easier to apply. And, if you want some bright color without the boldness of a liner--a colored mascara works, too!

I love, love, love this understated look. Pair a frosty blue or silver lid with a nude lip. It’s so romantic! For a night out, add a bit of liner your top lid to make your eyes pop more.

I love the richness of a deep burgundy red--especially in a monochromatic look. To tone it down a bit, I loved Kendall Jenner’s look. A muted burgundy on the eyes and a bold burgundy on the lip.

I’m loving the glossy eye recently. We used to do it in the 90s as models and I’m so glad it’s back! It’s natural and can be worn day or night.

Who doesn’t love a good smoky eye? It’s sexy and flatters everyone. The problem is it can be messy if you use the wrong products. With a shadow stick, it’s easy! Line your bottom and top lid and blend. Voila!
