Gorgeous metallics aren’t just for clothes and jewels this season – beauty also sparkles and shines!
The new eye colours also use a hint of metallic to add glamour. For inspiration, look to stars like Beyoncé, who has recently sported gorgeous shades of metallic lilac, pewter, silver, gold and even green.
The fashion catwalks indicate a rosy future. Pink cheeks look so fresh and youthful. Leave the heavy contouring and bronzer for winter and opt for a natural flush.
The way to look sophisticated: keep the blush high on the cheekbones. Sweep it along the top of your cheekbones and blend it up to the temples; the effect is like an instant facelift!
For evening, shimmer glosses add sparkle without adding too much colour. The alternative to the strong eye-neutral lip combo, is to go for a classic 1950’s look – flushed cheeks, minimal eyes (just mascara and a touch of black liner), with matte red lips. Don’t be afraid of red lipstick! Apply it as a stain with your fingertips or a lip brush, blot and reapply until you’ve got the desired intensity. Apply a coat of lip balm and you’re good to go.
Strong brows are here to stay. Take a tip from stars like Brooke Shields and Jennifer Connelly, and embrace straight, thick brows. That doesn’t mean untidy brows are in! Keep them neat and groomed with regular tweezing.
