    The unspoken rule of walking down the streets in this city is to put on your best poker face and look straight ahead. That means don't make eye contact, smile, or stop and stare at someone — the cardinal sin of the streets. But this is New York — a city where people constantly push boundaries and inspire with their personal style. If we did follow that old-school rule, we'd miss spotting these women and their fresh takes on fall beauty, and that would be worse than standing on the wrong side of the escalator during rush hour.

    From an unexpected mix of silver eyeshadow and peach blush to dark-blue brows (yes, you read that correctly), these 12 makeup combos are subtle yet impactful at the same time — inspiring us to rethink our own looks for the season. And since we know you'll want to get in on the action yourselves, we asked makeup artist Ashleigh Ciucci to pass on some of her expert application techniques, as well as which Maybelline products will help you recreate this at home.

    Click ahead for a dozen images that prove just how beautiful breaking that stop-and-stare rule can be. But the one about the escalator is still valid, though.

    Name: Michelle Collins
    Age: 30
    Occupation: Assistant to blogger/part-time nanny
    Spotted: On Grand Street between Lafayette and Crosby streets

    Get her look: We know — blue brows sound totally unwearable. But when you choose a dark shade, like Michelle did here with navy, it provides a subtle distinction that eases you into the look. To apply the color, use an angled brush to draw in tiny "hairs" with the cream shadow of your choice. Then, run a clean spoolie brush through your brows to blend the strokes together. Finish with a swirl of blush in a complementary shade, like rust orange, over the apples of your cheeks, and smile.

    Name: Sable Yong
    Age: 29
    Occupation: Writer/editor
    Spotted: On Grand Street between Baxter and Mulberry streets

    Get her look: Sable inspired us to swap our burgundy lipstick for a rich brown shade instead. It has the same moody look we love for cold weather but feels new and refreshing. Depending on your desired finish, you can pat the color on with your fingertips for a soft flush, apply straight from the tube for a cleaner look, or use a lip brush for surgeon-like precision.

    Name: Stephanie
    Age: 27
    Occupation: Publicist/singer/writer
    Spotted: On Grand Street between Lafayette and Crosby streets

    Get her look: To keep wearing your warm-weather colors into the season, choose one focal point to highlight, and keep the rest of your look minimal. For a look like Stephanie's, pat lavender cream shadow onto the middle of your upper and lower lashlines, and blend the color out toward your temple. Finish up with just mascara and a sheer lip balm.

    Name: Alissa
    Age: 30
    Occupation: Actress/blogger
    Spotted: Between Centre and Broome streets

    Get her look: If you're not a natural blonde, listen up — you don't have to match your brows to your dyed strands. In fact, take a page from Hollywood's book, and purposefully contrast the two. Try a brow product in a shade or two darker than your hair color — bonus points if you match your brows to your roots, says Ciucci. No matter which color you're going for, try an all-in-one palette so you can road test the look with different powders and waxes.

    Name: Makana Ching
    Age: 24
    Occupation: Art director
    Spotted: Between Lafayette and Broome streets

    Get her look: For subtly defined eyes without obvious look-at-me vibes, try matte eyeshadow paired with shimmery eyeliner along your lower lashline. First, use an eyeshadow brush, or your fingers, to pat a matte taupe cream shadow across your entire lid, extending the color almost to your temples. Then, swipe silver liner along your lower lashline for understated shine and to balance out the texture of the matte shadow.
