From clothing to accessories to beauty, the metallic trend is shining in full swing. Far more sophisticated than glitter, yet a little more eye-catching than matte, shadows in shimmery gold, silver and jewel-tones add a luxe accent to any makeup look.
Wear any one of these shades on its own to give your eyes a dose of glimmer. Feeling bold? Here’s how to master the full-on iridescent smoky eye:
Apply Pure Color Envy Defining EyeShadow Wet/Dry in Silver Edge on the center of the lid and along the lower lash line. Dust shade Blue Fury on the outer corner and into the crease, and blend the two tones together.
Tip: For extra intensity, use a damp brush to apply.
Rim top and bottom lash lines with Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in Emerald Volt, and top with Envy EyeShadow in Emerald Envy. Then blend EyeShadow in Emerald Envy with the Silver Edge shade along the lower lash line.
Tip: Use a long, tapered brush for seamless blending.
Define eyes with Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner in Kohl Noir. Finish with a generous coat of Sumptuous Extreme Mascara on lashes.
Tip: Apply your mascara as usual, then run the wand over the tops of your lashes to help them really pop against the metallic shadow.
