New Years Eve Metallic Party Make up

Metallic make up was a huge runway trend this Fall, the perfect colour to wear this New Year. In order to get the look right you need choose the right tones to compliment your skin tone, follow these basic guidelines.

If you have light to medium skin, try shades like pale gold, silver, champagne and rose golds. If you have medium to dark skin, try bronze, copper and true golds. It only takes a touch of metallic on one feature at a time, so choose whether you want the eyes, cheeks or lips to be the focus.

For fast sparkly eyes, add just a dot of silver or gold on the inside corners near the tear ducts. This will draw people’s gaze up to this area and illuminates the area.  I like to use Mac pigments as these rich pigments so a little goes a very long way.

For a more smokey look go for the Stila Smoky Eye kit. With this palette you can define the eyes in layers of metallic hues so use the darkest color at the lash line and lighten as you blend up towards the brow bone. Add the highlighter in the kit on the brow bone and to the inside corners of your eyes. Line your rims with black eyeliner and lashings of black mascara to complete this look.

Another quick make up idea I like, is to use  glitter eyeliner on your upper lid and keep the rest of the eye neutral.

If lips are your best asset and you are not really sure how to wear metallic on them, choose sheer glosses in bronze or gold and use alone or layered on top of other lip colours, I love these mini shades by Lipstick Queen and they fit perfectly in your clutch.

If you don’t have time to try out new shades of make up then why not go for my favourite nail colour right now by OPI and accessories with this cool CC Skye two finger ring.
