Makeup Trend: Metallics

Since the revival of 90’s fashion, one major makeup trend that is coming back is metallics. Whether on the runway or on the streets, I have seen many people use gold and silver metallic eyeshadows or even wear shiny metallic lipstick. Lustrous metal shades can actually look quite flattering on the eyes and bring about a kind of glow on the face. I personally love this makeup trend, and I am ecstatic that it is coming back across many people worldwide. Here as some instances of the revival of metallic makeup, and some ideas on how to rock this look:


This is the perfect eye for a night out. Wear a bold gold eyeshadow, and pair it with a black smokey eye effect. This makeup look is daring yet chic.



For a more subtle look, Gigi goes for a metallic silver eye, with a bronzed effect on the outer edges.


Going for a full on metallic lip can be a little bold, so if you are more on the softer side: try a shimmery gold lip gloss for aย radiance effect.


Try some bronzed eyeshadow for a glowing summer-like look.


A silver eyeshadow can enhance your eye color and give out a glimmering effect.

        You’re most welcome. I hope I do, any suggestions?


      2. I’ve been really loving two products: Charlotte Tilbury’s Colour Chameleon Eye pencil and the Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows. They are a little bit on the pricier side, but I would say they are worth it. Hope that helps!
