I've always loved wearing similar hues together whether it comes to a monochromatic face or dressing in white from neck to toe. And now, the colors I'm obsessed with for my fall wardrobe really lend themselves to be worn well as my makeup colors of choice, too. Matching your makeup to your clothes can be as easy as picking your favorite color of the moment and going wild. To get you started, here are three of the season's standout hues and how I'm wearing them in my beauty routine.

Eyes: The ultimate in silver is in the foil. This eyeshadow pretty much blows my mind for a few reasons. It creates an amazing texture on your lids and it's also buildable so that you can be as glitzy as you feel that day. It's the perfect complement to an LBD or laid-back denim look that needs a bit of sparkle. To add just a strip of silver, opt for this liquid liner by Urban Decay. It makes any makeup look mod.

Eyes: Cobalt blue for eye makeup has been a major trend this season, and there are so many ways to wear it, but I like to go all out with a deep-blue smoky eye, courtesy of Bobbi Brown's Metallic Eye Shadow in Midnight. And, when I'm feeling a little sassy, I throw on a colored mascara — with just one swipe of this vibrant blue wand, my eyes are an instant hit.

Eyes: I love cream shadows because they help me skip the lid-primer step and save time while adding a sick color to my lids. This olive color by NARS is great because it's an almost golden olive green and has a little bit of a metallic feel. To layer on the greens, use a dark emerald green liner, such as this one by Bobbi Brown. It gives me the intense definition that I want, but the green shimmer drops a pleasant surprise to my everyday makeup routine.
