    Our beauty philosophy can pretty much be summed up with two words: Do you. And the beauty of that is it means something different to everyone. It can be a classic red lip, a bright-orange eyeliner, or nothing at all — the makeup world is your oyster, and it's meant to be played with.

    Makeup artist (and we're stressing the word artist here) Michael Anthony is always down to play, so we called him in to review the best and boldest makeup trends coming out of Couture Week 2015. From the watercolor faces at Schiaparelli to the bold, angular brows at Chanel, there was inspiration everywhere. We mixed and matched our favorites into fall looks we knew you, our down-for-anything readers, would be game to try. Then we recreated them with products from Maybelline (a brand present backstage for countless runway shows).

    So go all in with a pastel brow, or try switching your neutral shadow for a glossy lid one day. It's playtime.

    Opposites Attract
    Chanel's Couture Week show featured ultra-defined brows, a hot flush on the cheeks, and bright-red lips. In other words, it was a study in boldness and a message that multiple facial features can share the spotlight. For this look, Anthony echoed Chanel's bold brows and lips but added a vampy twist for fall. Then he balanced the matte-textured pout with eye-catching glossy lids.

    First and foremost with a look featuring defined brows — maintenance. Start by tweezing any hairs that fall outside your natural brow line, and brush hairs up and over in the direction they grow. Then use a brow pencil to trace just beneath your brows. Buff and soften this line with a brush, and finish filling in your set with a brow powder.

    Next, sweep a peachy-toned shadow across your eyelids. You want to choose a shade that's neutral but has just a hint of shimmer to draw the eye, like the one found in Maybelline's The Blushed Nudes eyeshadow palette.

    Using a multipurpose balm, squeeze out a pea-sized amount (any more and you run the risk of looking greasy) onto your index finger. Spread the product across each lid for a glossy look.

    The key to glossy lids: Rein it in, says Anthony. Use a clean, fluffy eyeshadow brush to soften the edges of the product all along your browbones. This will keep the gloss from traveling too far up your eyes into messy territory.

    Gloss on the eyes calls for matte on the lips — a striking balance of opposites that makes the look here. To get this richly pigmented effect, start by lining your lips in a deep-burgundy shade, then fill them in with the same liner. Finally, layer on a matte lipstick or stain in a matching hue, using a lip brush for precision.
