The holiday season is just around the corner, and with it comes the excitement of planning outfits that captivate. Without fail, flashy dresses and shimmery skirts always find their way into our wardrobe rotations during this time. The allure of metallic tones is undeniable and often has its own vibrant holiday spirit. As you curate your wardrobe for the upcoming bustling season, why not extend the glamour to your beauty collection? Metallic makeup offers a fun way to brighten your look, adding extra sparkle to your holiday aesthetic. If the thought of a statement shimmery eye intimidates you, we’re here to walk you through an easy metallic makeup look that anyone can replicate.
Metallic eyeshadows tend to have more fallout compared to their matte counterparts. Thus, a strong, grippy primer will help to ensure your eye makeup stays put for as long as possible. We can’t recommend the Urban Decay Primer Potion enough. From there, start by applying a soft gray shade to the eyelids as the base color. Now, it’s time for the fun part. Using an angled eyeshadow brush, use Natasha Denona Mini Xenon Eyeshadow Palette with Hourglass Curator™ Eyeshadow Singles to create a shimmery dark grey winged eyeliner effect. The results will still elongate and shape the eyes as any normal eyeliner would. Next, take a reflective silver glitter eyeliner and carefully apply this on the inner ¾ of your natural crease area. Use a regular shimmery eyeshadow to add a pop of sparkle to your inner tear ducts.
To tie the whole metallic makeup, look together, apply a generous amount of mascara to the upper and lower lashes. If desired, add a pair of false eyelashes for a flirty, nighttime-ready look. This bold, metallic makeup is captivating and one that is worth having on repeat from now and into the holiday season.
