This fall, it’s going to be all about the metallic hues to brighten the skin. Metallic shades can be used anywhere, but one of the best places for these colors is on your eyelid. Many runway models are rocking metallic eye shadow this fall, and for good reason. Sure, a few people may fear they can’t pull off the shimmer, but in reality, with so many metallic eye shadows out there, from gold to silver to even copper, anyone can rock this bold look for Fall. Want to know how you pull off this look? Here is the 4-1-1.
Why The Metallic Look is Popular
The metallic eye makeup trend is popular because it lightens the eyes, and brings attention right where you want it. It is so easy to do, and with a variety of metallic colors on the market, you can find the best one for your skin tone. No matter what color eyes you may have, there is a color that will work perfectly for you. You can apply as much or as little product as you want, so you can wear this look both night and day. Red and brown colors are simply great for fall and resemble fall foliage. The smoky eye look can also be done using darker metallic colors, and is something to try if you love the classic and ever popular smoky eye.
Two Ways to Rock It
If you want to give your face a nice glow, but you don’t want something that is too over the top, you may want to consider getting some gold eye shadow and giving your eyelid a soft dusting. You do not have to apply too much, and can get just the slightest hint of shine. The goal is sheer, so a bit will do just fine.
If you want to try and do a smoky eye using metallic colors, you will want to have a pallet on hand with many colors. You will want to try to apply a deep copper shade to your eyelid and you will want to blend this up towards the brow bone. You will want to give your eyes some depth by applying a darker matte shadow at the outer crease. You will want to use the same copper you used on your eyelid underneath your eye as well, almost like it was eyeliner. You can then apply some black eyeliner, but do not go too overboard. Some mascara will complete the look.
As you can see, metallic eye shadows can be used in a number of ways to create a number of different looks. No matter what you are trying to do, you can do it with metallic colors. Give these looks a try for something new and fun this fall, and you may find yourself utterly surprised at how much you like them. They’re easy to do and will look great with any eye color!
