Metallic smoky eyes are a hot look for the festive season. It’s easy when you have the right products and top tips to hand.
When adding metallics to the complexion, keep it light with a highlighter that has just a hint of sheen. Use the tip of your ring finger to dab the product softly, and not directly from the product package.
Put a fresh spin on a classic smoky eye by replacing a grey base shadow with a metallic silver one to create a stunning, shimmery effect.
Metallic lips may seem like a runway-only look, but when done subtly anyone it can be pulled off. Any of your typical lipsticks or glosses can be turned into a pretty metallic version with a dab of loose powdered eyeshadow over top. Focus the shimmer at the center of the lips to create dimension and fake plumpness.
Matching your nails to your lips or shadow is a nice touch as metallic polish shades are flattering on all skin tones.
