Color Trend: Metallics
By NewBeauty Editors |
From gunmetal silver and deep gold to bronze and even icy white, rich, dark metallic makeup, that echoes the sumptuous tones seen on the runway and in ultraluxe pieces, is making a statement.
On Your Nails
An opaque, deep caramel shade, Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in No More Drama flashes shimmers of copper and bronze. $16, deborahlippmann.com.
How to Wear: Dark metallics tend to be easier to wear, but light shades work as well. The key is to pick a hue that contrasts against your skin tone.
On Your Eyes
Offering long-lasting staying power, Youngblood Incredible Wear Gel Liner in Galaxy is a dark gray shade with a hint of sparkle to it. $21, ybskin.com.
How to Wear: Metallics can be tricky—too pale of a color can wash you out, which is why makeup artist Julianne Kaye says a metallic smoky eye is best. Pair gold or bronze with dark blue liner for a sophisticated look.
On Your Lips
Like modern-day mood makeup, Estée Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick Luminizer in Gunmetal can be layered over any color. $25, esteelauder.com.
How to Wear: For a sparkly look, choose a glossy silver or gold formula. Silver or gold lipstick gives a hint of shimmer.
On Your Eyes
The golden metallic Chanel Ombres Matelassées Palette in 51, Montaigne accentuates eyes. $80, chanel.com.
How to Wear: A metatllic smoky eye creates a sexy look. Great for evening (during the day use a lighter shade), pair gold and bronze lids with dark liner.
The herringbone pattern of this Hermes Mega- Wide Bracelet in Enamel makes it timeless. $910, hermes.com.
