Forget subtle, matte eyes… it’s time to amp up those eyelids with one of the season’s hottest beauty trends – metallic eye makeup.
Adding a touch of metallic or shimmering shadow can make all the difference. Whether you go for a simple cat flick using metallic eyeliner, or a full on smokey eye by adding in a touch of shimmering metallics you’ll give your makeup a luxe look.
If you’re a huge beauty junkie like me, don’t be afraid to play around with some metallic or glittery eyeshadows and get your hands dirty. I’m loving a the coppery metallics that are popping up everywhere!
If you’re not a fan of going all out, the best way to add a little shimmer is to use a metallic shade on the inner corners of your eyes. This will give you a gorgeous but subtle highlight, and make you look more vibrant (we love that). Or opt for a metallic product that has a creamy base, as it will keep your look subtle while still retaining a bit of edge.
If you’re keen to embrace the trend wholeheartedly, we think it’s best to balance metallic accents with elements of definition like loads of black mascara and eyeliner to balance out the shine. And… remember to keep your face neutral & let your shining eyes do the talking.
