A Hint of Metallic
It’s all about the 70s with this trend, but what are the technicalities of pulling this off?
It’s easy; just match the eyes and lips. Yep, we know there are certain make-up rules you’re not supposed to mess with, but rules are there to be broken after all.
Matching eyes and lips give off that amazing retro feel without you putting in that much effort at all. For ultimate on-trend style, just make sure you choose one of this season’s top metallic hues such as copper, plum for fairer types and all the spectrum of silver for darker skin tones.
This is a daring style, and there are other ways to embrace the metallic feel without the high fashion attitude. For example, harp back to the 90s and 00s. We always do!
Remember when all you needed in life was a strong eyeliner and a silver eyeshadow? Well, channel this once more. And we have just the tips for perfecting it:
– Firstly, apply a light sheen across your entire lid and a light coating of mascara. Make sure your mascara is mostly dry before continuing.
– Next, using a darker shade of silver metallic, finely brush the outer edge of your lid working your way in creating a gradient of the base coat and the darker hue. Then you need your lightest shade; a generous application in the inner corner of your eye blended outwards is essential.
– Finally, a strong line of black kohl underneath your eye, and slightly lighter along the top will complete this season’s glamourous spin to the smoky eye making them POP.
