Color Crush on Navy: Beauty Buys in This Season’s Hottest ShadeAlli McGinnis
This seasons hottest shade, navy, is not just to be worn in your outfits. One of my favorite parts about working in beauty is taking a fashion trend and transferring it into your beauty regimen. This season we are seeing navy used in smokey eyes, dramatic eyeliner, deep dark manicures, and glitter-rimmed eyes as we move into the holiday season.
It can be intimidating trying something new out, especially on your face. Pick one of these trends to start with and experiment at home before you try it out in public.
Click through my slideshow below to see my favorites ways to to wear these beauty trends and what products to try them with.

Eyeliner 2 of 6
A safe and easy way to start is to just switch out your typical black or brown eyeliner for a navy shade. This will add a subtle pop to your eyes. Try a thicker line for a more dramatic effect or smudge the line all around the top and bottom lash line for a smokey effect.

Eyeshadow 3 of 6
If you are willing to step it up a little and try something more dramatic, go for the full smokey eye. Simply brush the navy shadow over the entire base of the eye and up and over the crease. Make sure you use an eyeshadow base so the shadow lasts all day. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral so your eyes get all of the attention.
